Genius 'Visual Measuring Cups' Clearly Show The Actual Portions They Hold

A clever design doesn't have to be elaborate or over-the-top. In fact, sometimes the best ideas are the ones that are the most obvious.

These "visual measuring cups" took that rule and put it into practice. While the design is quite simple, a lot of people can't help but wonder why they weren't created a long time ago.

If you've ever baked, then you know it is a very precise process.

That's probably why none of my baking endeavors ever turn out well — I kind of just estimate my measurements and hope for the best.

Maybe that's why someone created these visual measuring cups for people like me who need some extra help in the kitchen.
