As featured in the Top 10 Home and Garden Gifts for Christmas

We know that some of you are fans of the bish-bosh ‘chuck it and see’ cooking method, but sometimes you need to measure what goes into our recipes. Trouble is, cracking out clunky scales is a right malarkey, especially when you can measure both liquids and solids with the ingenious Maxim 2 in 1 Jug and Scales.

This clever one-litre measuring jug has digital scales in its base, saving you time and sanity in the kitchen. And thanks to a smart add-and-weigh function it can measure all the liquids necessary for a recipe (water, milk, oil) and go straight onto solids (flour, sugar, breadcrumbs) without throwing a Gordon. Building up and mixing different ingredients has never been easier.

You needn’t worry about complex sums because the Maxim’s LCD display shows weight and volume in both metric and imperial units. In fact if recipes go wrong using this baby the only person to blame will be the bazillionaire saucepan botherer who guesstimated the measurements. Yes, chef!

Customer Reviews

I've had this for a while now and it's been great. Hasn't helped my cooking any - but it's meant less washing up, which I hate, so it's a god-send :).
Loz - 8th May 2012
Great Product.... Just a little tip - if your spouse/partner doesn't realise that you can't keep it immersed in water for too long, and the digital screen becomes filled with water - do not fret. Do not try taking it apart and just leave it a warm place like near a radiator. The water will find its way out and the product will work fine again. Don't try to disassemble the scales as they are a bugger to put back together again!

Love this product. Problem is washing it - The battery compartment isn't waterproof. That said, a real space saver (I have got the SMALLEST kitchen!!!). Thanks for the innovative products Firebox :).

When the scales part is detachable from the jug part and the jug part can take boiling water, let me know and i'll buy one.
Greg - 6th October 2011
Great product but the jug should be detachable - I can see the outside and gap at the bottom getting clogged with flour etc. Especially if you can't dishwash it... I'll ask the wife if she wants one! :-).
