Another cleverly designed item here from OXO. It's so simple, yet so amazing. A simple tweak to an everyday object and it's suddenly so much easier to use.
The way the measuring marks are incorporated into the measuring jug mean you never have to bend down to see how much liquid you've just put in.
Gone are the days of putting in a bit of water, squatting down to see how much you're put in, adding a little more, squatting down to look at the side again, adding and touch more, checking you haven't gone over the 500ml mark and then pouring some out.
Now you just stand up straight and pour in your liquid. This measuring device makes it simple and easy to get exact measurements of liquid in an upright position. Brilliant!
Sadly, I can't give it 5 stars though because I have one minor gripe with it. The measuring ring protrudes into the main body of the jug which means the space inside is reduced. This makes it hard for me to whisk up my energy drinks because I don"t have the space to get a good whisking motion going.
Other than that - this is an amazing item that makes measuring your liquids a doddle. The markings are clear and easy to read and the rubber handle is nice and comfy too. Great for pouring your perfectly measured water, milk or whatever else you see fit to shove in it.
