Info: Adjustable Measuring Cup/Spoon/Scoop
The Nuscüp by Dalla Piazza is a clever European-designed device which can simultaneously measure and scoop up various quantities of either liquid or dry ingredients in a single swoop to a precise amount which you specify with its patented adjustable sliding mechanism. Shaped somewhat like an ice cream scoop, it features a slider knob and measurement scale on the handle which you operate with your thumb, to specify the amount you want. The slider knob moves a flap in the scoop, to limit its payload to that amount.
These tools can scoop up anywhere from 1/8 Tsp to 1 Tbsp (or 5ml to 30ml, or 1/4 to 1 oz) of sugar, for example, for the Mini model; or from 2 Tbsp to 1/2 a cup, for the large. They are made of durable plastic, and some models feature a brushed steel cover on the top part of the handle (the rest of them is a translucent, smoky grey). They come apart for easy cleaning, and are dishwasher safe. They also have a magnet on the back, to keep handy by attaching it to your fridge, microwave, or stove wall.
