POURfect products are simply perfect – in the words of my good friend, Margaret! She calls this a handy-dandy measuring cup, because it is easier to see the point on the cup where the surface of the liquid lies.
Due to the fact that this little pitcher is narrow, there is no sloping of the liquid in the center, which is caused by surface tension, so your eye can more easily see the measurement and it will be very accurate, quite unlike what happens in a typical wide mouthed Pyrex two cup measure. So you might think that this is just a measuring beaker, which it is, but it is perfectly designed for the most accurate liquid measuring!
Additionally the handle is uniquely shaped for an easy grip while the spout to pour is flawless, not leaving any drips behind. I’m thinking of using this for maple syrup the next time I make pancakes or waffles! I really dislike those sticky little drips that appear all over the table from a regular little pitcher.
So I made this DELICIOUS Roquefort dipping sauce for wings or salad dressing, in this little pitcher. I used walnut oil instead of olive oil that added a distinctly rich, nutty flavor. Of course you can use this on a salad which I did last night, of finely sliced lacinato or Tuscan kale, farmer’s market Romaine and bacon. Total yum.
But football season is here and we all love wings! Frying is messy and not a great thing for you. I marinated these in buttermilk and hot sauce, coated in panko and “oven-fried” them on a rack at 450 degrees. Much easier in making and clean up and so much better for you.
Happy cooking and measuring!!
