KitchenArt Pro 2 Cup Adjust-A-Cup, Satin

Adjustable measuring cups are an old standby. We often use them in the test kitchen to measure and dispense semisolid ingredients that can be a hassle to manage, such as corn syrup or mayonnaise. Instead of struggling to scrape every last bit of these gloppy foods out of a traditional liquid or dry measuring cup, we simply fill the adjustable cup’s barrel to a specified volume marking, turn the cup over, and press down on the plunger when we're ready to dispense. The plunger scrapes out the ingredient, and one additional swipe of a rubber spatula over the plunger is all that is needed to empty the measuring cup completely.

KitchenArt Pro 2 Cup Adjustable Measuring Cup

WINNER - RECOMMENDED

This model was the easiest to operate, with a plunger that glided smoothly through the barrel and consistently scraped the barrel clean. Its wide, stable base sits securely on the counter and keeps the plunger from accidentally going all the way through the barrel. This model’s markings didn’t fade in our thorough washing tests (including both hand-washes and cycles through the dishwasher), but if you’re concerned, we recommend sticking with hand washing. This model takes some extra attention—occasional lubrication of the plunger and care not to drop it lest the barrel break—but we still think its ease of use and convenience are worth the tradeoff.

How We Tested Adjustable Measuring Cups

We assembled a lineup of four products, ranging in price from about $11 to about $24, and used them to measure peanut butter, shortening, honey, and molasses. Throughout our testing, we noted how they performed and how easy they were to clean. To gauge their versatility, we also measured water and flour. We tested their durability by washing them, repeatedly pushing their plungers back and forth, and dropping them on the floor from counter height. We were looking for a measuring cup that was easy to operate and clean and accurate, dependable, and durable.
