A big measuring cup like this with a spout is the perfect thing to mix pancake batter, sauces, scrambled eggs, and so many other things. Plus, the measurements on this Anchor 8-cup model are not printed on the glass, but etched in, so no matter how many times you wash it, the markings will never come off. Today’s price is a good $5 less than usual, and this would make a great gift for the cook in your life.
