Cook Precisely With A Measuring Jug From Spotlight

If you love to cook, a quality measuring jug is a must-have cooking accessory for your kitchen. Measuring jugs allow you to add precise amounts of liquid to your cooking, and also work as vessels for melting solids into the microwave, like butter.

At Spotlight we offer measuring jugs from brands such as Decor and Wiltshire, in useful sizes ranging from 250mL to 1000mL. With plastic measuring jugs and glass measuring jugs available, you're bound to find a measuring jug you love at Spotlight!

Which measuring jug should you choose?

Here are the factors you need to take into account when choosing a measuring jug:

  • Measuring jug material: Our measuring jugs come made of either polypropylene (plastic) or borosilicate glass. Plastic measuring jugs are lighter to handle and can be dropped without fear, although they are more prone to cracking and can become warped at very high temperatures. Glass measuring jugs are durable and long-lasting, but are heavy to handle and can break or chip if dropped or mishandled.
  • Measuring jug size: How many people are you baking for? If you live alone or in a household of two, you can probably get by with a measuring jug that holds 500mL of liquid. Bakers for large households and groups will appreciate the size of a 1L measuring jug instead.
  • Measuring jug lid: If you will be using your measuring jug in the microwave a lot, look for one with a fitted lid that will prevent liquids from splattering out. The lid also means it can be used for safely storing food and drink in the fridge.

Measuring jugs FAQ

What is a measuring jug?

A measuring jug is a small, clear glass or plastic vessel with incremental measurements on the sides. They are used for measuring precise amounts of ingredients to be used in cooking and baking. Measuring jugs have a handle and spout for easy pouring, and often feature measurements in cups on one side and in millilitres on the other side.

How to use a measuring jug

To use a measuring jug, set it on a flat, stable surface. Add your ingredients slowly until the amount reaches your desired measurement on the side of the measuring jug. Then pour it into your cooking vessel.

How do I clean a measuring jug?

Most measuring jugs can be cleaned in the dishwasher - these will be marked as 'dishwasher safe' on the packaging. You can also hand wash them with warm water and dish soap, but be careful not to use abrasive cleaners like steel wool, as you may scratch off the measurements on the side of the jug.
