Generally, you don't want to buy a set (this applies to most consumer goods) as they usually are compiled of subpar or superfluous items, aimed for the uninformed beginner who just want to get started, but instead pick good stuff yourself.

  • I'd say buy a shaker from one of the places mentioned here - buy a 'Tin on Tin' Boston shaker. Cobbler shakers need to be kinda expensive before they're good, while Boston shakers are great, even if the machining isn't ultra precise. They are also simpler to work with and clean.

  • Downside is that you are going to need a strainer for a boston shaker as well. The one I see recommended the most is the OXO Hawthorne strainer (Link) - which I own as well, it's great and cheap. Most other hawthorne strainers are fine too, as long as they are big enough to cover the shaker, and won't fall in.

  • If he doesn't have one already, I would also get him a fine strainer. This one you can buy from any kitchenware store / amazon, and it doesn't need to be fancy.

  • He will probably also need a measuring device. If he likes showmanship, get him some jiggers from one of the cocktail sites, or if he's more practical, get an OXO Clear measuring cup (Link). I would reccomend the latter to any home bartender. For a compromise between the two, there's also the slightly fancier steel measuring cup (Link) or the OXO Stainless double jigger (Link).

  • Finally, I'd also recommend some kind of juicer, as most drinks contain some kind of acid, usually citrus. Personally, I like the Chef'n'FreshForce Citrus Juicer (Link), but others are available.

    With a Shaker, a Strainer, (a Fine Strainer), (a Juicer), and a Jigger, you can make pretty much any shaken drink. If you want, you can look into a muddler as well. I'd recommend staying away from buying anything expensive. Best deal is buying a french rolling pin and chopping it into two muddlers (Link).
    __

    Even though shaken drinks are the majority, most of my favourites are still stirred drinks. If you want you can splurge on a mixing glass from one of the cocktail sites which are pretty but really expensive, or you can check IKEA. Their VARDAGEN or BENUNGE cups are pretty perfect for this (Link). He'll also need a cocktail spoon for stirring. Either buy one from the cocktail sites (Avoid those with the red tip), or find a neat pair of chopsticks. The chopsticks are untraditional, especially in the west, but are functionally as good or better as a spoon for most use cases.

    __

    Apart from gear to make cocktails, one thing which is always nice to get, is glasses for serving them in. I don't know if this applies to your dad, but some fancy stemmed glasses are always cool to get.



    If you're in Europe, check out Cocktailkingdom.co.uk or Cocktailian.de. Otherwise, Amazon is great (remember to check .co.uk and .de for better deals). I bought my shaker and cocktail spoon from Homestia.com, and am happy with them; good quality, great price, and arrived in a fancy box. The only downside is that I think they ship from China, so it might not arrive prior to christmas.

  • art supplies: You should add one of these to go with these. This drawing pad to go with this set. This watercolor set is amazing. And these for some pen and ink.
  • Gardening: I feel like these are a must have in anyones garden and for whatever reason (probably because I'm a 5 year old at heart) this makes me feel like a badass but also keeps me from leaving my shears somewhere and having to carry all my tools at once. I think this is awesome for germinating.
  • Books: I just read this book and I highly recommend it and I also want to read this one which I was told was amazing. If you have a kindle you should add this or this since you like Doctor Who (theyre basically the reason I want to get a kindle).
  • Doctor who: This is awesome. Id love to have these in my kitchen and this in my bedroom. Maybe just this and this for fun.

    Hope you like them and if I win I'd like this or for the raffle this because I really really want it

I absolutely LOVE to cook, I'm obsessed with food, and learning to cook, and I'm currently learning to bake. I mean, I did pretty much learn the basics when my parents were raising me at home, but I didn't go all out of my way to learn much more than that since I wasn't really that into sweets once I was out on my own. Now that I'm all grown up, my first husband and I made really good money so if we wanted dessert we just bought it, but my family now, my second husband and children, we are a lot more on the poverty level, so I'm learning to REALLY bake. And I LOVE it!!! It's actually a lot of fun!! I'm currently knee deep in a ton of fruit, and trying to figure out how to bake it all into something delicious!! Anyway, I have tons of baking stuff and food items on my list, but one thing on my list I super need are measuring cups and spoons! Here's an under $30 example that looks like it'd help me out quite a bit!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EZQQEMS/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1AE4COXKLBCF8&coliid=I1OQ2UA362Z7VN&psc=1

u/MsMargo · 2 pointsr/cocktails

Just a note, a Lemon Martini is usually not made with vermouth, and white (dry) vermouth isn't sweet. : )

But as someone who has been bitten by the cocktail bug in the last few years, here's my humble advice. Pick one or two drinks you want to learn to make. Don't go crazy buying a huge number of liqours to start. Buy good quality ingredients for your two, and start making and tweeking them. This time a little too much lime juice, next time a little too little, until you dial in what it is you like. Things like fresh lemon juice, versus the stuff in a plastic yellow lemon bottle really make a difference. You don't have to go top shelf on liqour, but stay out of the low-end stuff. And it really is important to actually measure every single ingredient. This is the best cocktail making purchase I've made!

The glassware doesn't have to be perfect - yes, you can make it in a coffee cup - but it is kinda' nice. Don't spend money on fancy glassware to start. Hit your local thrift store and pick up some cheap, but correct-for-the-drink glasses, and you'll appreciate it. Plus you'll feel classy!

Garnishes are actually not as easy as they sometimes look, so learning to make garnishes is a skill. Sometimes, as /u/stormstatic said, they are part of the actual flavor of the drink, sometimes they just make it pretty. To start, focus on mixing the drink, later add the garnishes. Heck, what's a tiki drink without all the stuff and paper umbrellas sticking out? : ) Goal!

u/zayelhawa · 10 pointsr/Baking

Here are some of my favorite tools:

  • Mini measuring cups/beakers - I love these! No more spilled/wasted vanilla extract.
  • Instant-read thermometer - I use this to check on the temperature of my dough/ingredients and even to confirm things are done baking.
  • Maybe you already have these, but if not, I use my kitchen scale and oven thermometer all the time.
  • Bakeware rack - This keeps my baking sheets and smaller pans better organized and more easily accessible than just stacking them on top of each other.
  • Marble slab - keeps pie/pastry dough cold as you roll it out (I keep mine in the fridge so it's always ready).
  • Pastry strips for making sure pie (or rolled-out cookie) dough is rolled out to an even thickness. Pastry cloth/sleeve for keeping dough from sticking.
  • Cookie scoops - for drop cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and really anything that needs to be portioned out evenly (including non-baking stuff like meatballs). Whenever I use these, I'm always really grateful for them. Mine are Zeroll dishers I got from King Arthur Flour, but Webstaurant Store has them for cheaper, and Oxo has a line of cookie scoops too.
  • If you make layer cakes, you may already have a turntable, but if not, this one is really good. I also like this cake lifter.
  • Of course, there's also stand mixers. Super-helpful for things like whipping egg whites for meringues/souffles/angel food cake, creaming butter and sugar, and kneading bread dough. If you ask for a stand mixer, the KitchenAid Pro has a stronger motor than the Artisan. I have the Artisan, and it's worked fine for me for several years, but if I could go back, I'd go with the Pro instead. An extra bowl is very handy as well.
u/coffee148 · 1 pointr/Coffee

Yep! I will let you know! Good question, bit of a long story! So initially I had no clue and just dumped all the water in at once straight from a standard kettle - this was 10 months ago when I first got my Chemex. It never tasted great but was half drinkable (that's me being generous haha). So then I wised up and started using a pyrex jug (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pyrex-Glass-Measuring-Jug-0-5L-x/dp/B000KGALJE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483694300&sr=8-1&keywords=500ml+pyrex+jug), I think it's a pretty UK thing a Pyrex jug, but I could be wrong. Are you in the UK or US or where? With the Pyrex jug, I transferred the hot water into it from the kettle and pulse poured cause I'd been watching every Chemex video on Youtube haha. That made a half decent improvement, but the pyrex jug doesn't have a lid so there was a lot of heat loss before the water even got into the coffee grounds. Then, after I got my Baratza Encore and realised how important recently roasted beans were, I got a more precise electric kettle that boiled faster, but it was just okay - was pouring all in at once and stirring (see here as to why I stirred, it's Seattle Coffee Gear's video entitled "stir your pour over": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgsySaYHbLQ). It was a balance between reducing heat loss as much as possible whilst getting as accurate a pour as possible. Then I got the Hario Buono after I had little success with the normal kettle, and wow! Made such a difference, although initially I didn't preheat it. For a while I continued to pour all water in at once post bloom in a controlled manner and stirred a few times. Then I posted on here about having issues with under-extraction (having tried everything from grind size to ratio), and was recommended a pulse pour for more extraction. The suggestion was to change ratio and technique - see https://www.reddit.com/r/Coffee/comments/5jd0qd/impossible_to_get_even_extraction_with_kenyan/?st=ixlljihq&sh=b977d424 - Meth_PRN 's comment second from bottom. So I tried his pulse pour suggestion and pre-heating the Buono and it yielded great results after a slight tweaking of grind size! Same question to yourself? And what do you brew with? V60, Kalita Wave, Chemex or what?

u/tourmaline82 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I'm not going to say the obvious like knives, basic cookware and large kitchen appliances. If you're in this subreddit, chances are you already have those. Instead I will tell you about my not so obvious but much beloved kitchen gadgets.

A set of nesting tempered glass bowls. Mix ingredients in the big or medium ones, mise en place with the little ones, serve things like tossed salad or mashed potatoes also in the big ones. If you need a bowl, chances are one of these will be the right size, and because they're glass they don't hold on to odors or stains like plastic does.

The Wonder Cup! If your recipe doesn't have weight measurements and you're measuring something like molasses or peanut butter that would be a pain in the ass to get out of a normal measuring cup, Wonder Cup will be your salvation. I would not want to make peanut butter cookies or BBQ sauce (I like molasses in mine) without my Wonder Cup.

Following the same theme, my Mini Measure, aka that measuring shot glass thing. Measures in mL, fluid oz, teaspoons and tablespoons. Sure, you can use a measuring spoon, but I'm kind of clumsy and tend to spill those. Lot less spillage with my little shot glass.

Silpats. I bake a lot of cookies. Grease flat out doesn't work as well and I have almost lost several sheets of raw cookies due to parchment paper slipping and sliding around. Silpats stay where I fucking put them.

Wire baking racks, I prefer the kind that have a grid of wires as opposed to wires only going one way. Thin cookies have a tendency to slide through the latter.

A KitchenAid stand mixer, I could not make meringue or lebkuchen (German spice cookies, the dough is really stiff) without it.

Probe thermometer, I have a Lavatools one and it works quite well. Is the lamb done? I dunno, poke it and find out!

Digital kitchen scale that easily switches to different units. I freaking love European recipes, weighing my ingredients is so much faster and easier than messing with five different measuring tools.

You can cut butter into flour with knives or a fork, but it's easier with a pastry cutter. Several of my go-to baking recipes require cutting butter into flour, if you don't bake much you probably won't use it as much. Also excellent for making egg salad.

Garlic press! Given half a chance I would put garlic in every savory dish I make. I adore garlic.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/santashelpers

For your friend who likes to bake, there are TONS of adorable baking/cooking gadgets out there! My own personal collection includes items such as a knife holder that looks like a guy being stabbed, matroyshka nesting doll measuring cups, and a great collection of novelty cookie cutters.

Not to be totally cheesy, but would animal girl appreciate a donation to your local ASPCA (or other animal rights charity) in her name?

If not, some of my go-to gifts for people who are tough to gift for are: new headphones (these BassBuds with Swarovski crystal detail are only $20 on Groupon right now) or a portable phone charger (ex. here is one for iPhones, but you can also get for any device or multi-device).

For your guy, sign up for woot.com and watch for the daily deals... if you have a bit of time to wait, I have often seen cool knives for cheap on Woot!

And finally, for your friend going abroad, get her something to remind her of home. Does her high school sell t-shirts or keychains? Does she have a favourite sports team? I live abroad (Canadian living in the USA) and I love receiving Leafs gear and Canadian stuff (maple syrup, maple cookies, ketchup chips, butter tarts, etc) from my friends back home.

u/Cupcake_Kat · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I don't think it was a gag gift, but I got these measuring cups from one of my best friends and I was less than excited (after she left). I put them on my counter next to my stove so she could see them when she came over, and feel happy with her gift. I now use those dang cups almost every day! LOL! It is just so handy to have them there, and I love that they don't have too big of a footprint on my counter. : )

u/Hollyingrd6 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love cooking and while I can not help you with the soap and other beauty products I can help you with the cooking utensils

As said before- Pyrex Is the way to go when getting rid of plastic (29$)

For Cooking utentisls I would never recommend stainless as it gets so hot and can ruin certain pans. Instead Wooden is the way to go for 6$

As a bonus here is a link to disposable wooden utensils for camping and holiday use for 20$ so you wouldn't have to use plastic.

If you don't have one a steamer is a life changing item, this steamer and ricecooker gadet is a great combo for you. You can use it strictly for gluten free cooking and let your family have their rice made on the stove. at 15$

I highly recommend Pyrex for your measuring cups too. They work in the microwave and are pretty amazing for 15.

I agree that stainless pots are the way to go I checked out the reviews on this set and found that it has the best costumer service and finishing at 57$

I don't know if this helps or not but I did try! Good luck stopping smoking and if I win surprise me!

u/Konryou · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Just to add to warwatch who had most of what was on my list:

  • bathroom floor mats
  • measuring cup (this kind and this kind; Pyrex is good for the former but any old set will do for the latter)
  • dish brush (like here, way better than a sponge)
  • whisk
  • tongs
  • tupperware containers
  • grater
  • coasters
  • ramekins
  • meat thermometer (I got this one about 4 months ago and it's been pretty good; no more "is this what cooked pork/chicken/meat looks like?")
  • silicone spatula
  • pot holders, oven mitts
  • Various sizes of wall hooks. Useful for hanging things on the wall that would otherwise be leaning or on top of something (broom, mop, linter, hair dryer, depending on your cabinets you can even hang pot lids on the walls of the cabinets)
  • paper towel holder
  • shower/bath organizer - depending on how you are set up, you can use a shower caddy to hold most of your things; my showerhead and the pipe leading to it from the wall is angled in a way so that isn't possible but I've had this for about 1.5 years and it has been great.
  • if you have a cabinet in the bathroom, something like these small drawers may be useful for organization.

    Some of this depends on how much cooking you are planning to do, but it's all pretty essential in my experience.
u/lightzalot · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I had a best friend on World of Warcraft aka WoW that I played with and did things with daily and we ended up dating long distance for over a year and then he moved out of state to be with me. We had a little girl which turned 3 yesterday. Everything was pretty great except he didn't want to finish his g.e.d when we had a place next to the house to do it. He didn't want to work..or do anything really. He was a great dad and all so we started fighting here and there. Nothing too serious, he wasn't much for fighting or arguing. He would just stay quiet. So, I had a best friend of over 10 years that was married with children and her husband just went to boot camp and she needed a place to stay until he got his first check so she could get a place and I completely trusted her 100% because we had never had one issue at all. Well my daughter was sick and I was having to take her back and forth to the doctor and run errands and my bf would not go with me and they were acting weird in front of me and I had a feeling something was going on so I told her I wanted her out of the house and that I could not handle it and I didn't trust them together. They yelled at me and told me I was crazy and so on only to admit it on my daughter's birthday last year that everything that I thought was right. So I told him to get the hell out and I never said another word to her again. So that's how that one ended up going. :/

Aside from that disaster, I'm now with another friend that I had from WoW. He lived in California and left there to be here with me as well. And everything has been going great. :)

My honest opinion: If you can read, you can cook. Literally. Basic cooking is simply reading instructions and following them. Once your comfortable with how things taste together, timing, and what spices taste like, then you can move on to more advanced dishes.

I think a fun part of learning to cook is gearing up. Since most people here will give you a grocery list, I'll give you a list of helpful items that I use daily.

  • 1 large, sharp kitchen knife and basic sharpener

    The knife if a bit on the pricey side, but trust me when I tell you it's worth it. You only need 1 and as long as you hand wash and dry regularly, it can last forever. Sharp knives won't cut you as often as a dull knife that sometimes slips.

  • crock pot. This is good because it doesn't require any sort of culinary skills. Mostly just mix and wait.

  • Liquid Measuring cup

  • Dry measuring cups

  • Flat spatula

  • Other spatula (for stirring and wiping out sauces/batter/etc.)

  • Tongs

  • Very basic non-stick pots and pans I have a cheap set I bought from Costco that has lasted me 8 years and counting. Be sure to ALWAYS use wood or plastic utensils with non-stick or you risk scratching the non-stick surface and fucking it all up.

  • Wooden Utensils These are nice because you can leave them in a pot of sauce and not worry about them expelling chemicals or melting.

  • Also a holder for your kitchen items

    I assume you have basic dishware and silverware, so I've only included common cooking items.

    Hope this helps! I'll update if I can think of anything else you'll need.
u/dreamstorm7 · 3 pointsr/Baking

Oooh. I would suggest some fancy ingredients like some Nielsen Massey vanilla paste (I have the gigantic 1 quart size myself and it's pretty much my favorite thing ever) or some Valrhona cocoa powder or feves (fancy chocolate chips). Some high quality measuring cups like these ones from All Clad would probably make her over the moon (as others have said, you can never have enough measuring cups and spoons, and heavy-weighted ones like those are a delight to use). You can round out your gift with a few cookbooks you think she might like -- some suggestions are the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook (since you mentioned she makes lots of cupcakes), the Tartine Cookbook (I love this one), and Rose Levy Berenbaum's Cake Bible or Heavenly Cakes.

u/shadar1101 · 2 pointsr/eldertrees

Maybe some budtenders can, but most are full of BS when it comes to advising customers. They act like they know what they're talking about, but usually don't.

My recommendation is to buy some high THC weed and also some high CBD/Low THC weed and then play around with mixing them until you get the right head. Even better if you get three strains into the mix. For me, a good sativa, a good indica, and some CBD-heavy weed.

That way you can experiment and learn what you enjoy/need at any given time, and then mix up the right stuff when loading your vape or pipe. I use a very, very tiny spice measuring spoon set to measure it out. The ones labeled drop, smidgen, pinch, dash, and tad. Here's a link:

https://amazon.com/New-Star-Foodservice-42924-Stainless/dp/B00KH9PSNI/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1468181696&sr=8-6&keywords=spice+measuring+spoons

Mixing up blends is far superior to trying to find the perfect strain. Make your own.

u/Ask_Seek_Knock · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You look wonderful today, did you do something new to your hair?

You should get this can opener is made of good thick steel, it's heavy in the hand and I have never had a problem opening a can with one. Bonus, it has a bottle opener on it.

And this is an excellent liquid measuring cup.

You may also want some of the following:

Hand soap for the kitchen and bathroom sinks, hand towels.
You need basic first aid stuff, like adhesive bandages (band-aids) and rubbing alcohol, good tweezers. Include basic pain meds, stuff for an upset stomach, allergy meds, or any prescription medications you need.

Sponges and scrub brushes. If you want to use a swifter type thing, I'd like to recommend this I have used it to clean offices and it works. The handle is pretty heavy duty and you can make or buy extra cleaning cloths, then you just put them in the washer.

Oh a colander, I will admit I picked that one because it's cute.

I love my rice cooker I use it to steam vegetables or cook rice at least once a week. I have the larger version but that one would probably work, or the larger one.

I could use one of the following: Notebook or Scissors or a Book.

u/Stolichnayaaa · -1 pointsr/cocktails

Get yourself one or two of the oxo mini angled measuring cup. They make a metal version too but I like the plastic. It lets you pour smaller measurements like 1/8 cup by looking down from above. It's a great kitchen and bar tool that I use every day.

I have the Pampered Chef version of these measuring cups I love using these since I can see what I am measuring much better.

My mama got us a Soda Stream and it has saved gobs of money on energy drinks and pop. I think that the majority of the sodas taste better than their more expensive counterparts and they contain way less sugar!

While I do not have one of these; I am thoroughly convinced that I NEED one. =)

Edit: Let's do it in the kitchen.

I got so excited I forgot the raffle phrase :p

u/emtilt · 4 pointsr/alcohol

Buy yourself a shaker, and an accurate measuring cup/jigger. I like this one.

Some options:

  • Grab some fresh limes at the grocery store. Pick up a bottle of gin - doesn't need to be too expensive but don't go bottom shelf. New Amsterdam, Beefeater, etc, will work for now. Grab a bottle of Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur and a bottle of green Chartreuse. Put 0.75 oz each of fresh squeezed lime juice, gin, Chartreuse, and Luxardo into your shaker, add lots of big hefty ice cubes, shake until very cold. Strain the liquid into a cocktail glass or whatever you have on hand, and you have a Last Word.
  • Grab some rye-forward bourbon or rye whiskey - again, no need to go super expensive at first but don't go bottom shelf. Maybe start with Bulleit (either regular or the rye version). Get a good vermouth - Carpano Antica Formula is the classic, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino is cheaper and has a very similar flavor profile. Get a bottle of Angostura bitters. If you want, optionally get some good cherries, like the Luxardo brand ones - the neon pink ones from the typical grocery store are not adequate. Put about 2 oz whiskey, 1 oz vermouth, and 1 or 2 dashes of bitters into a mixing glass. The ratio of the whiskey and vermouth can be adjusted to your preference once you try a few. Add lots of big ice, and stir until very cold. Strain the liquid a glass, and optinally add your cherry. Enjoy your Manhattan.

    There are many more options. The tempatation will be to buy a bunch of shitty liquors and liqueurs. They will not taste good. I really recommend trying a smaller number of nicer things. This goes for things like beer, too. Anything will get you drunk, but alcohol can also taste amazing - don't miss out on that aspect.
u/DiKetian · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

That's a great peeler - I have one and it's great! Got a blender and a toaster too? If you like cooking, a motar and pestle can sometimes be handy, or some fun measuring spoons and metal mixing bowls - get stainless steel and not plastic. A pyrex measuring mug is useful too.

u/LongUsername · 2 pointsr/Cooking
  • 10" cast iron skillet.
  • 6qt pot for making pasta & larger batches of chili and soup.
  • 2qt saucepan for making sauces/reheating soup/Mac & Cheese.
  • Fibrox Chef's Knife
  • Paring Knife.
  • Cutting board. You're going to have to hand wash it, so wood is fine.
  • Measuring spoons, maybe 2 adjustable ones if I was trying to go completely minimalist, but probably just a good set of stainless steel ones.
  • 2c liquid measuring cup (glass so it's microwaveable).
  • 2c adjustable Plunger measuring cup.
  • Rubber spatula
  • Turning spatula
  • Set of long cooking chopsticks for flipping/stiring stuff.
  • 9x9 or 9x13 pyrex pan.
  • Jelly roll pan (more flexible than a flat cookie sheet)
  • 2 Stainless Steel Mixing bowls.

    The big thing while cooking with smaller amounts of cookwear is to keep soapy water in the sink and wash stuff right away so it's ready to go when you need it. You don't need multiple knives: just wash it quick, wipe it dry, and use it. Same with measuring stuff (just be smart about measuring dry before wet as well)

    I'm also assuming that you have Plates/flatware/bowls/etc. Make sure to have enough bowls (I like Corelle ware for cheap and durable) to do your mise en place to quickly reuse the limited measuring cups.

I used to have the ice cream maker attachment for the kitchen aid stand mixer. It was great to be able to make ice cream in about 20 min.

Something much more modest, I got these adorable nesting doll measuring cups as a housewarming gift and I just love them! They are decorative and functional. It’s really handy having a 2/3 and 3/4 measuring cup handy too.

Measuring cups, wet and dry, and measuring spoons. I have these wet cups, and they're great. Also might want to pick up a garlic press. I have one sort of like this, and it's the best one I've used. Very sturdy, easy to clean, presses more garlic than any other I've ever used.

u/EddieViscosity · 1 pointr/AskScienceDiscussion

Any measuring cup would work, but it is better if it's cylindrical instead of conical since this makes it easier to understand that more height equals more volume when the diameter of the tube is the same. But in the end any measuring cup works.

Something similar to this would work pretty well.

I've never used a gravy separator, but I've used a glass measuring cup for coffee many different times in a microwave. The gravy separator is a great idea! I would recommend go with the simex as it's borosilicate glass.

In regards to boiling water in a microwave, I would suggest putting a chopstick in the cup for safety as it's heating. The chopstick will break the water's film, allowing it to "roll", and prevent it from being super-heated and exploding.

This has some good ideas of how to "Adulting So Hard"...

So here's my suggestions:

u/mogrim · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

While I can't help much with the cake, as an ex-pat living abroad I'd really suggest you get a book using the local ingredients and quantities - it'll make your life a lot easier. Apart from the measurements, ingredients vary too - self-raising flour is the main one I'm thinking of, but things like butter are often more or less salty, bacon's got more or less fat, etc. And that's assuming you can even get the ingredient, of course...

Edit:

If you really want to use a cup as a measuring instrument, just use a small glass filled to a bit below the brim. (Most small glasses IME measure out at about 250-300ml volume, which is about right). I wouldn't bother trying to change them to grams. Also, Amazon.fr will no doubt be overjoyed to sell you a set of measuring cups, they'll probably cost less than €10. (For example: http://www.amazon.fr/Miniamo-Brights-Lot-cuill%C3%A8res-doseuses/dp/B007J3JR4G/ref=pd_cp_201_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=121F3MR86GBXC2SCKHF0 )

Your cake... A burnt top and runny inside suggests you made a mess of the temperature conversion and ran the oven too hot. Or your oven runs hot. The recipe itself looks pretty foolproof, and shouldn't be too dependent on local ingredients.

u/JasperPNewton · 3 pointsr/Cooking

It would be helpful to know what kind of storage and counter space he will have in the place he's moving in to. If you've got minimal storage space, you'll appreciate one item that has many uses rather than a range of items that you have no room to store them. I also agree with the suggestions of getting him some Pyrex liquid measuring cups. So, so useful! I also have two Pyrex bowls. They are the perfect thing to have for storage, serving, cooking, eating out of, etc. I wish I had more, I use them nearly every meal.

u/PureMichiganChip · 7 pointsr/Coffee

I use a Pyrex measuring cup and can get a pretty controlled pour. Most people already have one of these around the house. Not trying to dissuade anyone from getting a goose-neck, but something like this is probably the next best option if you don't have any kind of kettle.

u/kuroageha · 2 pointsr/Cooking

So the Emsa Perfect Beaker doesn't count? Because I love mine.

The [Oxo angled measuing cups] (http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Grips-3-Piece-Angled-Measuring/dp/B0000CCY1Y/ref=sr_1_3?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1404230464&sr=1-3&keywords=measuring+cup) aren't bad either, but I'm much on the side of the beaker.

For other things, especially really viscous stuff like peanut butter or honey though, you can't beat the [adjustable measuring cups] (http://www.amazon.com/Wonder-Cup-Two-Adjustable-Measuring/dp/B000I21N7O/ref=sr_1_3?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1404230554&sr=1-3&keywords=measuring+cup+plunger). Except for the fact that none of them seem to have a good solution for not having the measurements wipe off other than be really freaking careful what you use it with.

u/TabMuncher2015 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I was mainly pointing out that measuring by weight is far more accurate than volume regardless of unit. Of course for some things like water or butter volume is fine. But for flour, sugar, and irregular things like chocolate chips/fruit weight is much preferred. Really doesn't matter what the unit is as long as it gets the point across.

Although I admit, as a US baker I have far more utensils with cups/fl oz than ones with milliliters, deciliters or centiliters.

[This is my preferred tool] (https://www.amazon.com/Emsa-Perfect-Beaker-with-Seal/dp/B00004R92L) for measuring out ingredients by volume since it has all the major units both metric and US. Also works well for scaling ingredients too! Although I wouldn't pay $10 for it, I think I only paid 4 or 5 for mine.

u/zaphodX · 2 pointsr/design_critiques

Don't get down because of lack of sales. You are doing this when you are 23yr old and not when you are already burdened with life ahead. So, pat yourself in the back for a great start. And, tighten your belts.
My notes/questions:

  1. Have you turned on analytics on your site? For basic look, I couldn't see it enabled.
  2. Do you know if people are adding the product to the cart but are abandoning it?
  3. Where are your visitors coming from? Organic or from referral from other diabetes-related sites? It is possible that people are visiting your site just because it shows up as a result somewhere that is not relevant.
  4. Your website is an initial start but there are some obvious things you should attend to:
  • Site is minimally styled, which is good for customer eyeballs, but for selling products, you need more styling
  • Add some more information/articles/links/sources about diabetes and portal control, cite some experts
  • Have you tried to add some more cross-sell any complementary goods on your websites that can draw in a customer? How about giving people a package of goods for discount?
  • You don't have any pictures of the packaging that the rings come in. That in my opinion is a fatal flaw in marketing since customers don't know what they are going to receive in their hand when they receive your product.
  1. You currently seem to have one product only. Have you tried to kickstart sales by using Amazon/ebay stores? You will be able to leverage the millions of customers who are already looking for diabetes related stuff. For example: http://www.amazon.com/Meal-Measure-Portion-Control-Tool/dp/B004Z0SDXC/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373560993&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=diabetes+portal+control is a portion-control cup and it already has some decent reviews on the product.
    Hope this helps.. I spent my time majoring in marketing in MBA and do website/search engine stuff as a hobby. You seem to have a decent product, but need to sharpen your focus and refine your USP.

u/ts_asum · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Alright, that we can work with, 20$ budget and no existing bar:

-only two tools are remotely important: shaker and jigger. The rest is pretty much irrelevant, and can be easily replaced with things you have at home. Even the jigger is fairly irrelevant, because it only needs to be precise to itself. Doesent matter if the 3cl mark is actually 3.2
So I'd recommend you take the 20$ and buy a decent shaker, and maybe a small one-sided jigger.


you don't really need a Hawthorne strainer and weird spoon an all that, to be honest i usually can't be bothered to use them when im making cocktails for myself and are not in a hurry. Those tools are made to speed things up at a bar, but aren't a necessity.


i recommend spending the money on ingredients rather than additional tools for now, if you find out you really like that particular kind of cocktail then you should develop the bar in that direction.

u/derfanalytics · 1 pointr/AskCulinary

i have never met a recipe that compensates for the residue on the measuring cup. using the measuring cup to measure the oil ingredient of the recipe before measuring viscous ingredient will also work (if its a option). also there are also adjustable measuring cups like: http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Grips-Measuring-Sticky-Stuff/dp/B00A2KDAIW

they do a pretty great job of leaving no residue

u/infamoussilver · 2 pointsr/hydro

Go to your nearest big box store and pick up a small measuring cup and an eye dropper. Each should have measurements in ml. These will make measuring a breeze. Depending on which method you're using, follow either of the top two links from their website respectively. Each measurement is based off one gallon. For example, if you're doing simple recirculating, you would use 10ml per gallon for week 3. Keep your proportions. Using week 3 again you'd use 10ml of micro, 10ml of gro, and 5ml of bloom. The instructions say to change your nutrient solution every 7-10 days. Since my plants don't seem to use a full serving in 7-10 days, I switch up my proportions and do a half or a quarter serving so my ppm isn't too high. My feeding would be 5ml of micro, 5ml of gro, and 2.5ml of bloom. Follow Lotus' advice and keep your pH between 5.5 and 6.5 or do a google search for optimal hydro pH range of your plant. Always start with micro.

I recommend something like these OXO Measuring Cups/Jugs, as they have both Cups and Milliliters on them and should be easily accessible to you in the US. I live in Europe and use the metric system, but these come in real handy when I'm doing American recipes that call for Imperial Cups.

As for spoons they're exactly the same as in the US, since they're both based on Milliliters. A tablespoon in Norway is the same as a tablespoon in the US.

EDIT: Just realized you said you didn't want measuring cups with both types of measurements on them, sorry! They're still really handy measuring cups tho :)

u/dfmz · 1 pointr/cocktails

OP, I'm in Europe, so recipes for drinks are stated either in US or metric formats, so I use these. Oxo's version (the transparent one) is quite practical, but I find these to be more "bar like". The Oxos, while fine, are better suited for kitchen use, I'd say.

For very small or fraction of an ounce measurement, I use a Pearson Paw or these, also from Oxo.

There is a calculator here: https://www.genesisfoods.co/calorie-calculator

I have around 500ml of water, and around 40-50ml of double cream, depending on my mood. I could use more and be within my calorie count.

I use this blender, which has a 600ml bottle.
Avoid blenders that only have 500ml, as you'll struggle to get the right consistency.

You'll also need some scales. I strongly suggest some digital ones. Put the bottle on, reset the weight to zero (so the bottle isn't counted), and put in 50g of powder.
Then add cream / water.
I use these measuring cups to get a good indication of how much I'm using. Generally, I stick to the 14ml one, and use it multiple times to get what I want. The 5ml is useful for MCT oil measurements (take this one slowly!)

You can even use the scales to measure the cream once you've worked out how much it weighs! Different creams weigh differently, so I can't give you a figure for that one.

I don't have 3 shakes a day. I generally have a black coffee early in the morning (8am), a shake late morning (10-11am), another around 3-4pm and then actual food on the evening / night. Salad / meats / cooked veg. The only thing I have to be careful with is gravy, as most supermarket stuff can be a bit high on carbs, so water it down plenty and use the cups above to measure it out. As long as you stay within your carb count, it's fine.

The rest is just learning what products you can and can't eat and understanding how keto works. Don't get disheartened if you stall etc.

We get a lot of equipment questions here, so I wanted to add that when buying equipment, build quality is important, but also key is design quality. For example, stainless steel measuring cups are garbage if they look like this. You want the handle to be aligned with the top of the cup so you can sweep your dry ingredients starting from the handle and going across. Any handles that don't allow that are poorly designed.

It's really not that big of a deal. I have this. It has metric and standard units.

This is just a really old-school angled measuring cup, you read them from the side while pouring, they've been around forever, the later designs you can read from top.

Cute cat bag

Or perhaps some Kitty measuring cups

Here’s my baby
She’s the sweetest valentine because she’s always by my side. Fuzzy and waiting for cuddles!

I use a small OXO angled measuring cup that I got from Bed Bath and Beyond for ~$5.

You can get plenty of measuring cups/spoons (in cups) in the UK. I've got these in my kitchen.

Powder them in a coffee grinder to talc. Store in airtight glass. I use tiny measuring spoons. If you have a sensitive scale, see how much each weighs. Start with the smallest size. These are what I mean:

I think whatever you wind up using will get funky if you're not washing it enough. I use this for mixing drinks at home. I just put it in the dishwasher.

We use these for cooking in our home. They're fucking incredible. They have many different types of measurements going all the way around, and a lid/seal for shaking things once they've been measured.

Until we in the US get on the metric train, you could order a set of US measuring cups on Amazon or something. They are usually cheap. I purchased a kitchen scale so that I can make recipes from the rest of the damn world.

For liquids (which 'Europeans' do measure by volume as Americans do, but using metric instead of US customary units of course) Pyrex measuring cups/measuring jugs sold in Britain have metric measurements on both sides, unlike US measuring cups which only have metric measurements on one side, typically facing you if you are left-handed. They also have British imperial measurements (i.e. where 1 pint = 20 fl oz) but I totally ignore these since I basically never need to use them.

As for dry ingredients, they are specified by weight in European recipes (once you get above several spoonfuls) so you're best off just getting a scale; there is no real equivalent of American dry measuring cups made in metric quantities. I'm a fan of the Oxo pull-out scale, which will convert seamlessly between US customary (pounds and ounces) and metric (grams).

As for measuring spoons, tablespoons and teaspoons are for the most part almost identical worldwide, except for in Australia, as far as I know. 1 Tbsp = 15 ml = 3 tsp, so 1 tsp = 5 ml.

(A US tablespoon is technically 1/2 fluid ounce or 14.8 ml, but the difference between 14.8 ml and 15 ml is so small this is unlikely to make any difference whatsoever. An Australian tablespoon is 20 ml or 4 teaspoons.)

You shoudl get this Meal portion thingy because measuring out that shit is hard! And also this plushy Wall-e because it is just adorable!

Do yourself a favor and follow the instructions from now on and everything will be all right. Stray from that and there will be hell to pay.

Ah I totally misunderstood that but no need for the downvote (if that was you).

Looks to be this measuring cup: https://smile.amazon.com/OXO-Good-Grips-Adjustable-Measuring/dp/B00A2KDAIW
