How Do I Use the KPKitchen Liquid Measuring Cups?
- To measure liquids, place an appropriately sized liquid measuring cup on a flat, stable surface (don't just hold it in your hand!)
- Pour in your liquid until it is just under the desired measure line.
- Just look down straight to the cup while pouring to see the exact amount, once the liquid stays still, make sure it is at the level of the mark you want.
- You'll probably notice that the top surface of the liquid is not perfectly flat—it kind of climbs up the walls of the container around the edges. This is due to surface tension and the shape of that top surface of the liquid is called a meniscus.
- In order to measure accurately, slowly add liquid until the bottom of the meniscus is perfectly level with the graduation on the cup

Why Measuring Accurately is So Important?
Proper measuring is a crucial part of successful baking. Unlike cooking, where you can often get away with eyeballing the amount of ingredients you put in the dish—a ball of mozzarella, a knob of butter, three tomatoes—baking is chemistry and requires precision. Add too much flour to cake batter and the cake may come out tough and dry. Not enough flour and you risk ending up with a badly structured cake that will collapse in the oven.
