When it comes to cooking there is a lot of weighing out ingredients, measuring water, stock and juices, this takes a bit of time and there is always that battle to remember to reset your scales so that it doesn’t take into account the bowel of dish you are using.
Maxim’s 2-In-1 Jug & Scales is exactly that, a typical jug that you may already have in your kitchen that has had a bit of tech and gadgetry added in to make it weight itself and and measure its contents. No need for battling with scales this clever jug does it all.
The Maxim 2-in-1 Jug and Scales measures 14.4 x 21.6 x 13.9 cm, with a maximum capacity for 1 liter of volume and 3 kgs of weight. When it comes to measuring piping hot liquids take note that the jug has a temperature threshold of 70°C max. Also with the electronics and display on the handle this jug isn’t dishwasher friendly and would have to be carefully washed by hand. Improvements to make the electronics water tight and dishwasher safe would be a fantastic edition, as well as improving the maximum temperature too. However for quick and simple measuring and if you need a new jug too then this is a great gadget that is quick and easy to use and saves having to battle with those scales on your worktop.
To use as a measuring cup, just fill up the jug with the liquid and read the labels on the side, this is celery displayed and easy to read.
For the weight, just add or pour in what you’re weighing in the same container, then check the LCD on the handle where the display can show both metric and English readings. The weight displayed will be the weight of the contents which makes it quick and easy to do as you don’t need to remember to reset it to ignore the weight of the jug as you would with traditional kitchen scales.
