So, when the nice folks at UrbanTrend offered me their measuring cup with a rather quirky design, I said sure, I'll check it out.
Measuring cups have been around for a while, and the vast majority of them are very similar to all of the rest. A cup with a handle, a spout, and graduated measurements.
This one is different.
The Reverso name should be a hint. There's an integrated funnel that snaps into the bottom of the cup. The funnel has the measurement markings, so it needs to be there for measuring, but it snaps in and out easily.
It's an interesting idea. It takes a few seconds to remember where you need to look for the measurements, but it's not difficult. The one downside, is that the funnel needs to be attached to the cup when you're measuring. The upside is that you get two tools in one, and they store neatly together.
If you check out the UrbanTrend website, there are a couple different versions of the Reverso, including on that has measuring spoons that also snap into the bottom, as well as a mini version.
Who's it for: People who need a measuring cup and funnel.
Pros: Two tools in one.
Cons: If you're washing in the dishwasher, the funnel area gets filled with water, so you'll need to drain that.
Wishes: I think I'd like it better if the measurements were on the cup rather than the funnel.
Source: I received this from the manufacturer for the purpose of a review.
