Shot glasses may seem like unusual prep tools when cooking or baking, but they are actually the perfect pinch bowls for ingredients. In my kitchen, they are as essential as measuring spoons or mixers.
Not only are they glass and transparent, they have measurements printed on
them. Plus, they have a weighted base so they will not turn over. Due
to their small size, they are easy to stack & store. Shot glasses take
up very little space on the kitchen counter when working which allows you to
use as many as you need for individual ingredients.
Before I ever start to mix anything, I measure out all of the recipes ingredients in separate measuring cups & shot glasses. The shot glasses are great for holding small amounts of seasonings, spices, extracts, or small amounts of liquid. I still use my measuring spoons to measure & level the seasonings, but you could use the shot glass measurements on the side if you prefer.
By pre-measuring all of the recipe ingredients into separate shot glasses & measuring cups, I don't forget any ingredients, or wonder if I have already added a specific ingredient as I work. If the shot glass of salt is still sitting on the counter, I know I haven't added it yet. Plus, I can stir and mix everything together faster if I don't have to stop to measure each ingredient as I go.
Shot Glasses Are Excellent Pinch Bowls
Shot GlassesShot glasses can be used for so much more than measuring alcohol. Because
they allow a clear view of contents and have the measurements printed on the
glass, they are great when cooking. I have 4 shot glasses in my kitchen
cabinet of baking supplies and I use them often.
In the introduction photo, I have the seasonings for manicotti pre-measured and ready to add as needed.
Printed Measurements on the Shot Glasses
Shot glasses are also dishwasher safe, therefore clean up is a lot faster. I enjoy cooking & baking, but I hate washing bowls and kitchen utensils.
