Anyone who has spent any amount of time baking/cooking/experimenting will know the tedium of measuring ingredients but outside of pre-measured packets what could make it easier?


Cass Caps work much like your ordinary measuring cups, only instead of a key ring of clinking metal cups, you have a specially designed cap-of-sorts that screws onto your spice jar. Say what? It’s true. Have a look.

You set the caps to one of two options: either at ¼ tsp or ½ tsp. Once you’ve set the measurement, you just turn the bottle over, give the cap a twist, and you’re done.

Need more than that? Just twist it multiple times for larger amounts – let’s hope your fractional measurement multiplying skills are up to snuff. Outside of the functionality it provides, the design is somewhat interesting.
