Though Neil, I would be surprised if you couldn't find something cheaper--that is nearly $6 for a set of measuring cups that probably costs $2 in the grocery store.

i would recommend a scale vs. the cups to be honest...volumetric measurements of food are a bit more inaccurate and more time consuming than just throwing things on a scale and taring it over and over again. Not to mention you can do food measurements in grams

Ah, how would I convert that though? - Everything seems to be measure in 'cups'

Re: Is this what I need for measuring 'cups'?

Hey Neil,

I think there's also an Excel spreadsheet posted somewhere (hehe, sorry that's so vague) on the boards that has both US and UK measurements built into it. I think maybe George Mounce made it, but I don't quite remember. I'm catching up on a week's worth of threads, so I don't have the steam to do the search for you, but I'm 99% sure it's out there somewhere
