Measuring Shot Glass
This is my new favorite kitchen gadget. You can't really tell by the picture, but this little shot glass is marked down the sides with all manner of measuring mechanisms. It's does ounces, milliliters, teaspoons and tablespoons just to start.
It's indispensable when you're making a salad dressing that you've halved from something else and you need three teaspoons of something. Rather than measuring out three teaspoons of whatever with the regular spoon, you just pour right into the shot glass as if it were a regular measuring cup and stop when you hit three teaspoons.
I got mine at Reading Terminal Station in Philly last week and have used it three times since then. The best part? I paid about five bucks for mine, but online they're available for $2.99. Can you beat it? I didn't think so.
