This measuring cup is perfect for measuring liquids. It's a mini measuring cup that holds up to 4 Tablespoons so it makes measuring much quicker when making recipes with Olive oil, vanilla, vinegar, etc. It has angled markings so you can see the measurements by looking straight down. It eliminates the messy task of using a single Tablespoon to measure ingredients when a recipe calls for 2-4 TB. It's very handy especially when you are making sauces & marinades.
