Adding a new measuring cup to a correctional foodservice equipment and supplies catalog doesn’t seem like news, but the Cambro High Heat Measuring Cup is an innovative new product that we think will be a good fit to correctional foodservice operations. Once you learn more about it, you’ll see that this high heat measuring cup is made to take the heat in the kitchen!
There are two sizes, a 2QT and a 4QT, plus there is a universal lid that fits both cups. The high heat cups are designed with a BPA-free heat-tolerant plastic that gives them a temperature range from -40o F to 375o F. That makes them ideal to use in microwaves, ovens, or with kettles even hot water dispensers. Applications for the correctional kitchen include filling steam tables with hot water, draining liquids from a tilt skillet or kettle, or filling beverage servers with hot coffee. Add the universal splatter-proof cover, which is sold separately, and the high heat measuring cup is a great solution for retherming soups, sauces or broth in the microwave. It can also be used to rehydrate dried ingredients.
These measuring cups are translucent amber color allowing you to easily see the contents and they feature Metric and American Standard Graduation marks so you can tell how much product is in the cup with a glance. To keep things safe, the integrated handle won’t break off and will stay cool to the touch, and the optional self-venting splatter-proof cover protects the user and surfaces from any boiling liquid splashing outside. The splatter-proof lid is also re-usable, reducing the use of plastic wrap in your correctional foodservice operation.
One of the highlights to these measuring cups is that they are 75% lighter than glass making them significantly easier to handle when filled. And because they are made of plastic, they won’t bend or dent like an aluminum or stainless steel measuring cup and won’t crack, break or shatter if dropped like a glass measuring cup can. These cups are also NSF listed.
The 2QT measuring cup is 9”W x 6-3/8”H with a bottom diameter of 4-3/8” and a top diameter of 7-1/2”. The 4QT measuring cup is 9-1/8”W x 10-3/8”H with a bottom diameter of 4-3/8” and a top diameter of 7-1/2”. The Splatter-proof Cover fits on both cups and is 7-1/2”w x 1”H. The 1”lip on the cover fits over the measuring cups to ensure the lids don’t easily slip off.
