Pyrex Measuring Jug
Advantages: Clear measurements, easy to use
Disadvantages: Not the most aesthetically pleasing design!
Having recently moved into our new home I was missing a measuring jug and having managed to do some basic cooking by using the kettle as a measuring jug (not very accurate!) I decided I needed to purchase an actual measuring jug!
My last house was a shared house and we generally didn't spend much on kitchen accessories so I had spent two years using a basic plastic one, the numbers of which had rubbed off ages ago! So I knew I would be purchasing a Pyrex one. My mum has always had one of the one litre versions and I cannot remember it being damaged and replaced and as far as i know it is still in good working order!
At £4.00, it was more expensive than a plastic one, but I was pleased to see they have a 10 year guarantee, it is money well spent when you know it is going to last. In fact given that a cheaper one has only lasted 2 years, if you did go down the route of buying cheaper ones you could end up spending double the amount over the 10 years.
Although it is a plain design and if I'm honest, I don't think much to the red numbers, it does its job well. It is not for decoration, you wouldn't display it as you might do with a lovely ceramic style, however, I don't think anything on the market is as effective as a Pyrex measuring jug. With its clear design you can see any marks and dirt making it easy to clean. There is a range of measurements which are clear and easy to read. It has a sturdy feel to it, and my mum's has withstanded many years of heavy handedness from myself and my 'bull in a china shop' sister!
Although it's not the prettiest of my kitchen accessories, I'm sure it will be one of my most reliable and will be getting a lot of use over the years to come.
Summary: Will last and last!
