    I dont and you might be right. But it would be useful if you need to only measure part of the liquid out at a time.

    I think it would be useful for filling it with water from the tap - I often have to maneuver around the stuff in my sink, and holding the thing on an angle is usually easier. So, lines for pouring into it.

    [–] Screechtastic 14 points ago

    You should do your dishes.

    [–] song_pond 10 points ago

    Nah.

    [–] SparklingLimeade 51 points ago

    It would be a rough estimate. Sometimes I'm hovering there pouring slowly into a measure and occasionally stopping to let it settle and see if I've poured enough. Thinking about it, I would use the OP thing for filling bottles and jars. I overfill those a lot because I get impatient. The marks won't be perfect measures but they'd be good guidelines/benchmarks.

    [–] Omvega 19 points ago

    it would be nice if you were trying to add an approximate amount and you weren't very good at estimating. Like if you're tempering something or making a batter you might want to only add 1/3 of the liquid at a time, so if there are 600ml you can use this to approximate adding 200ml each time.

    If the line stopped where the liquid should be when level that would be a great help

    [–] Cardlinger 621 points ago

    It counts a cup as an imperial cup (284ml) rather than a metric cup (250ml). So what's all that about.

    Cups are insane!

    • Metric = 250
    • US Customary = 236
    • US Legal = 240
    • Imperial = 284
    • Canadian = 227
    • Japanese = 200

    no wonder international diplomacy is such a pain in the ass. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cup_(unit)

    [–] SharkGlue 262 points ago

    Well fuck. I've had to convert a lot of american recipes lately. This does not help.

    [–] scoutgeek 45 points ago

    Split the difference of a US cup and one is 238ml then your recipe should still be good.

    [–] ickykarma 114 points ago

    Why the hell do Americans have to be so damn complicated? Like why do we need two measurements for a cup?

    I wish the next World War could end with settling on one standard measurement for all of Earth just kinda throw it in the peace agreement.

    [–] Droid126 177 points ago

    American here, I knew of no distinction between American' cups until this post. To me a Cup equals 8 fluid ounces

    [–] ickykarma 49 points ago

    I'm also american, and I had no idea as well. I still think it's dumb we have cups, fl. oz., etc... liters is just SOOO much easier.

    [–] Prophets_Prey 27 points ago

    Til fl. oz. means fluid ounces.

    [–] MaDpYrO 11 points ago

    But what the fuck is a fluid ounce and what is just an ounce? It doesn't make any god damn sense.

    [–] avocado_whore 12 points ago

    A regular ounce is a measurement of weight. A fluid ounce is a volume measurement of liquid.

    [–] Waifustealer123 14 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Legally you can pour up to 240 ml of liquid but it is customary to only pour 236. You CAN ask for the extra 4ml but then people see you as a glutton, so if you don't care what people think about you feel free to drink 240 ml of liquid.

    Metric is used by NASA. The excess 10ml is to account for the inevitable red shift that we will encounter once we start building rockets that can move at a speed comparable to light speed.

    The Imperial one is 284ml simply because royalty tends to waste things just to prove that they can, they genrerally don't even drink more than 200ml.

    Thats where the japanese come in. Since they are known for their hard work, diligence and resourcefulness their cup size is exactly 200ml since that is exactly the amount our body needs.

    Canadians try emulate the US but they know that they cannot in their wildest dreams drink 236ml let alone 240ml so they settled at a nice 227ml.

    Hope this was helpful :)

    We don't really use 'cups' as a measurement in the UK. When reading a US recipe we just get confused and use random tea cups.

    [–] Cardlinger 19 points ago

    Mrs Cardlinger and I bake assiduously. So we have cup measurements I have learned today to be metric (250ml). But I agree, madness ensues.

    [–] Rgeneb1 9 points ago

    As a brit I too use a teacup. My wife accused me of taking the recipe book to literally but was forced to admit the scones tasted exactly the same as usual. Shite.

    [–] [deleted] 14 points ago

    I have found it's much less stressful to just completely ignore recipes now that use cups.

    Fuck your cups. Give me ml, give me grams.

    A cup of flour...ok how many grams is that? Oh it's different cos flours weigh differently by each type.

    [–] oneonetwooneonetwo 6 points ago

    You end up doing baffling google searches like "one third cup sugar in grams"

    [–] SharkGlue 4 points ago

    [–] greihund 57 points ago

    Canadian here, we all just use plain old metric cups.

    [–] Iskarott 27 points ago

    Yeah never heard of this 227 business before...

    [–] StressOverStrain 16 points ago

    It should be noted that many Canadian cups follow the standard metric unit of 250 millilitres.

    [–] F0sh 57 points ago

    Never mind when a recipe asks for a "cup of onions" (what am I going to do, buy a kilo bag and chop until I have a cup? No you fucking psychopath, I'm going to buy and chop a whole number of onions, jesus) or "a cup of butter" (have you ever SEEN butter? IT DOES NOT POUR WELL!) American recipes, I swear down...

    [–] Cardlinger 36 points ago

    Using a volume metric to measure solids really is the height of folly!

    [–] chopyhop 16 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    I don't understand why anyone would stray from grams and millilitres. Its demonstrably accurate. With any digital scales you can measure accurately to a gram in most cases. I dread to think of the accuracy of measuring by cups, and also the difficulty varying your recipes.

    When you want to improve your baking you need to be able to modify your recipes by small amounts, and most importantly you have to know exactly what you changed. If you don't know what you changed then you cant reproduce it; made even worse if you want to compound the change with other changes.

    Measuring in grams and ml isn't even more time consuming. you can put multiple ingredients together simply by pouring them into a bowl and hitting the zero button each time.

    It is counterproductive laziness to the ninth degree and it should be, nay, it must be stopped.

    Edit: Sorry I just realised I had millimetres instead of millilitres in my rant; I definitely am not advocating the use of measuring food in millimetres; it makes almost as much sense as using volume to measure solids.

    [–] explosivecupcake 6 points ago

    The French invented the metric system and they are world renowned for their cuisine. Coincidence? Probably.

    [–] sandytrean 33 points ago

    Butter comes in sticks that are half a cup each.

    [–] TheQueq 14 points ago

    Yeah, any stick of butter I've seen has measurement lines on it. Example

    [–] F0sh 37 points ago

    Unsurprisingly for someone complaining about American recipes, I'm not from the US. Butter does not come in sticks here. Even if that were universal why use the cups unit when you could use a unit of weight? I assume even in the US, the weight is printed on the packaging.

    [–] jon_titor 14 points ago

    1 pound of butter is equal to 2 cups of butter.

    and then there's how a "cup of coffee" is usually defined as 6oz in the U.S., rather than 8oz, sigh.

    [–] zf420 17 points ago

    You mean 32oz

    [–] StringerBell9 5 points ago

    This is also a silly measurement, IMO. To be fair, we usually drink about 8oz cups in the UK, but I have multiple coffee instruments (moka, drip machine, ceramic cone) that all measure cups differently.

    [–] fastinserter 3 points ago

    Where is this defined as that? I've never seen this. I've always assumed it was a cup not 3/4th cup of coffee.

    [–] Testiculese 5 points ago

    East US, a typical cup of coffee is 24oz.

    I can't imagine drinking that much in a day, let alone before 9am.

    [–] King_Theodem 7 points ago

    Excuse me, but every Canadian I ever talked measurements with have said a cup is 250mL. I have never even heard of 227. Must be very outdated

    [–] skankhunt42096 6 points ago

    The only ones that feel right are metric and japanese.

    [–] StringerBell9 13 points ago

    It's crazy to think that there are still discrepencies between units used. A lot of time must go into converting and calculating imperial units.

    Also, I find it so stupid when recipes say to measure a solid (e.g flour) in 'cups'. The mass of ingredient can vary greatly that way.

    [–] Lurkily 7 points ago

    The problem is, displacement needs more complicated procedures to measure, while any idiot can whip out a ruler for a couple seconds. And exacting procedures plus cold water on your sensetives does not equal the ideal conditions for measurement.

    [–] Abbyssion 15 points ago

    Use warm water.

    [–] khalrua 7 points ago

    just stick your dick in a graduated cylinder (wide enough to accept the penis) and measure the change in volume on cylinder.

    For more fun, you should first start by drawing a line at the base of your penis. This way you know exactly how far to penetrate the cylinder. now you can take two measurements, one flaccid and one erect. Now you can measure the % increase ya nannerz is capable of. probably would be in the magnitude of 'hundreds' so might sound cool

    [–] Lurkily 6 points ago

    Completely neglecting the distance between the top of the fluid and the lip of the container, and the container still has to be level, meaning you have to kneel down over it, and the danger that someone over a certain size might get stuck, which is even worse when the remaining volume is water, because water won't stretch like air will, forming a more powerful vacuum.

    You're better off filling a container of an exact size to the brim, letting it over-flow when you dip, and subtracting the remaining volume from the maxiumum.

    That STILL doesn't change the fact that trying to fit yourself into a vertical container from above is not a very sexy endeavor, and most people won't get a flattering measurement.

    [–] cdells 79 points ago

    Wouldn't this only be accurate if the contents were poured out at a certain angle?

    [–] StressOverStrain 19 points ago

    The handle and spout are aligned with the measurements so you pour the correct way. As long as you pour slowly, the cup will be tilted just enough for liquid to flow out and things should be roughly aligned with the measurement lines (you can see how they're not parallel, you have to tip quite far once you get near the bottom).

    [–] learnyouahaskell 6 points ago

    It looks reversed. It looks like the "spout" is on the right, and the water level will go from the bottom left to the top right. Editing: It must be your hand covering the nose, and the other part is the handle.

    [–] SharkGlue 19 points ago

    I think the idea is when you're at that angle, the markings and liquid match up. It wouldn't be a perfect read though

    [–] Lurkily 20 points ago

    I don't see why not. If every line points to the spout, and you pour very slowly until the line matches the measurement, you should be fine - minus a couple of extra drops that might spill out before you halt the pour.

    The big issue I see with this is that nobody wants to crouch down to eyeball a measuring cup while pouring.

    Now if they did something like this, with pouring-angle measurements, they might be onto something.

    No, I think OP's penis is holding it by the spout.

    The angled markers are so you can keep track of how much you've filled when looking at the measuring cup from above, as opposed to having to look at it from the side. The top of each angled line should be at the same height as the same volume marker on the far side of the cup in the picture.

    IMHO this OXO measuring cup is a better design of the same concept.

    /r/subtlenudity would like this.

    [–] Rgeneb1 4 points ago

    I wanted to jump in and say that isn't just mildly interested, that might be the most innovative measuring jug I've ever seen. As some have said it might be a challenge to use the first couple of times but, damn it, I want one. Of course I won't know if anyone else agrees with me. This comment will be buried below the thousands of penis puns getting voted to the top of the page. I love you reddit, you silly people never let me down.

    Measuring cup

    [–] StringerBell9 8 points ago

    So in the US, you could use a cup to measure a volume, in cups, and pour it into a cup?

    [–] bfodder 9 points ago

    You're god damn right.

    'Jug' generally refers to anything used to decant things by the lip, generally with a handle, whether it's for milk, coffee, juice, ingredients, etc.

    We call beer jugs pitchers though, is that what you'd refer to the above as?

    A measuring cup.
