Kitchen equipment to consider — 4 Comments

  1. I read a lot of American magazines growing up and always wondered about that stick measurement….it was never a term used in Australia but a knob certainly was…and i always converted a knob to a heaped tablespoon so way wau lesx than a stick by my layman’s calculations

    • Butter in the US comes in 1lb (500gr) boxes with the block cut into quarters and wrapped. But I never remember how much it’s supposed to weigh… mental bloick.

  2. I think (but I’m not certain) that a “knob of butter” is a largish walnut-sized piece of butter. I don’t think it’s nearly as large as a stick (that’s a quarter pound, isn’t it?)

    • I believe you are correct on both counts – I find it interesting and amusing how we all tend to assume that the rest of the world knows exactly what we are talking about lol

I love getting your comments; I read them all. I also answer them all - eventually.....
