Tala Dry Cooks Measure

Cooksdry_2Unchanged for over 50 years, the Tala Dry Cooks Measure is as iconic as things get in the world of baking. There has been no need to change the design as it is pretty good as it is and more importantly, it works on a practical level too.

This easy to use piece of equipment allows you to measure out various dry ingredients to the correct weight without the use of scales, simply by filling to the appropriate level. There are measurements for custard powder, flour, powered milk, icing sugar, ground rice, currants, semolina, raisins, sultanas, tapioca, haricots, lentils, barley, peas, sugar, rice, ground almonds, shredded suet, cornflour, cocoa, desiccated coconut, rolled oats and fresh bread crumbs – covering, I suspect, most of your cooking needs. Measurements are given in ounces and grams, with American and UK equivalents.

And the cost of this chef’s essential? Just £7.50 from the Conran Shop.
