The OXO Good Grips POP Container Scoop is ideal for measuring out dry ingredients for baking. It also works well to scoop out breakfast cereal, quick oats for oatmeal and rice. This scoop can also be used to quickly fill a dish of snack foods such as nuts, popcorn, granola and other treats for guests. Consider using this as a scoop for cat and dog food as well. It is easier than pouring from the bag. There are several rooms in the home this scoop would work well in. For instance, in the laundry room, scooping powder detergents is easier with this scoop. In the bathroom it can be used to measure out bath salts or Epsom salts for soaking. An alternative use is for filling or cleaning a fish tank as well.
