If you like to cook, and are just beginning the process of acquiring basic kitchen supplies, youre probably planning on getting a measuring cup and a kitchen scale. Should you need to maximize space, however, you can now get both devices in one unit. Its the Maxim 2 in 1 Jug and Scales, and it lets you measure both volume and weight. To measure volume, you just pour the liquid into the cup, and take note of where the surface is on the side markings - just like with a regular clear measuring cup. It can hold up to one liter, or four cups. To measure weight, you once again empty your ingredients into the cup, only this time in the form of solids. The built-in scale will display their weight on an LCD screen on the handle. It can handle up to 3 kilograms (6.6 lbs), and as with the volume markings on the cup, displays both metric and imperial measurements. It can also convert five commonly-used substances from weight to volume. GM
