Why is measuring ingredients accurately so important in baking?
I love to bake and have gotten pretty good at it over the years, but it definitely is a science and takes some practice. I’ve found that you can be a little more lenient with measurements when cooking, however baking measurements need to be accurate. If the measurements aren’t precise, you may end up with bread that sinks or a cookie that’s flat.

Favorite measuring tools for cooking
Below are my favorite measurement tools to use when in the kitchen.
- Measuring cups and spoons: I love these Simply Gourmet stainless steel measuring cups and spoons. They are super durable, dishwasher safe and stackable. They don’t rust over time and the measurement markings are engraved, so they never fade. Plus all of the measuring spoons fit into all spice jar sizes!
- 4-Cup Measuring Cup: I’ve had this Pyrex 4-cup measuring cup forever and always use it. It’s made of glass, so it doesn’t stain and is microwave/dishwasher safe. And I just love the turquoise color. :)
- Kitchen Scale: I’ve had this kitchen digital scale for a couple years and it has worked great when I need to weigh something and measure the ounces or grams.
