Pyrex Measuring Jug
Advantages: So usefula nd practical, inexpensive, virually indestructable
Alongside my fairly extensive collection of Pyrex dishes, I have my treasured measuring jug. This has proved to be yet another truly indispensable product from the Pyrex range and it's been so useful for a great many things since I bought it years ago. My measuring jug is still going strong after all these years and I don't think that they cost much more than £5 to buy one now. Mine is the 1.5 litre size (or one pint) though I do believe they may also come in a smaller size.
The glass on my jug is extremely thick, strong and very durable. It's been knocked about a lot over the years but it never shows any real signs of wear or tear. I love the thick wide handle on the side of this jug, which makes it so much easier for carrying and measuring liquids, especially if they are hot.
I use my jug for heating tinned rice pudding or custard in my microwave and measuring out stock levels for stews and soups. It is safe to heat up to 300 degrees (as is everything in the Pyrex range) and it can also be popped into the freezer, though personally I have never done this. I use it a lot for fillign with water and going around the house to water my plants.
I really like the way my Pyrex jug has retained all the bright red measuring readings on the side of the jug over the years - this is despite it's being washed at extremely hot temperatures in my dishwasher. The markings are still crystal clear and haven't worn yet and show no signs of doing so.
I have actually dropped my jug on a few occasions on my kitchen floor. The floor is covered in lino but has a concrete base. The jug didn't exactly bounce off the floor, but once dropped I checked it over to see that not a scratch or mark was apparent. The pouring spout on the front remains intact and also hasn't suffered any damage over the years, despite, I should think, being the most vulnerable part of the item.
I really couldn't be without my Pyrex measuring jug. It's something I use on an almost daily basis and it comes in really useful for so many reasons. I have had plastic measuring jugs in the past but have always found them to be far inferior to the Pyrex one.
I definitely do recommend this.
