? for cooks- how measure non solids?
 
not liquids, not quite solids, but something like mayonnaise- my wife uses this 15 year old contraption that is plastic, and had two sliding cylinders, that since its gotten older does not work well, hard to get apart, it sticks and hangs up. I tell her just use a cup but she says the amount left in the cup is significant @#$%^&

what do you cooks use?

I'd use a scraper to get the stuff out of the measuring cup.

It's not chemistry class. :grin: I'd be if you get most of it out of the cup, or off the spoon, etc. nobody will notice when it's on the table.

just get her a new one. OXO makes a great one, less than $20. She will be happy, you will be happy.

I just use the measuring cup and rubber spatula method. The rubber spatula is really good for many things.

I don't measure much but get real precise with my sausages. I measure by weight, not volume.

You can also lightly spary the measuring cup with pam. It will help release the contents easier. You can also scrape with the spatula and then just add 1/2 tsp. more to account for what's stuck inside the cup. It's usually NOT that critical to measure down to the millegram.
