JUG - For measuring

ca: GERRA Mesuradora

es: JARRA Medidora

Jugs for measwuring are industrially made in plastic or glass for measuring different substances, liquids, sugar etc. The height of the weight or the quantity of liquid that a product takes is marked on to the outside of it. In other words if ½ a kilo of sugar fills up 8 cm in the jug, this height is marked onto the jug. It can then be used for measuring quickly and roughly.
