Cooking is a science in its self, ingredients change form and give new flavour when experimented with and combined together. So it seems apt to have the correct equipment in the kitchen to ensure accurate measurements of the ingredients. The new Kitchen Lab collection from Pyrex includes two stunning products the Measure and Mix beaker and Measure and Shake jug, both of which are made from blown glass. The Shake jug comes in two sizes and comes with a rubber stopper.It is perfect for shaking marinades, salad dressing and can be used to store the dressings and  marinades  too.

The Measure and Mix beaker is ideal for measuring flour, sugar, rice and liquids making it perfect for creating anything from delicious cakes to a warming risotto.

 The beaker is also suitable for heating milk, chocolate and butter in the microwave, particularly useful for those budding bakers. The beaker is available in three different sizes, 250ml, 500ml and 750ml, and with clear markings and a precise pouring lip making it easy to transfer the liquids without spilling.
 I have been lucky to try out the Measure and Mix beaker and Measure and Shake jug in my kitchen. I have found both items extremely useful  as both come with clear to read measurements on the side, they are both easy to clean and the measure and shake jug is perfect for storae with the secure rubber lid.

Thankyou to Pyrex for sending me the 4 in 1 dishes, the beaker and shake jug to review. All the views in this post are my own
