Pouring is when you transfer a liquid from one container to another container, or onto something.


Difficulty to learn: Easy

Some Thoughts For You:

You usually use a pouring technique in part of any recipe. For making brownies, you might pour vegetable oil into a bowl of flour. Or perhaps you are pouring sauce onto pasta. Moving milk onto cereal is even using a pouring technique.

A good pour is established by slowly tilting the container until the liquid runs over the edge in a small stream. You can then tilt the container more to increase the speed, but be careful not to miss the item or container you are pouring the liquid into/over.

What You Will Need:

You can perform a pour out of almost any container. However, you can have a more controlled pour when you use a container with a small pour-spot on the edge, or a container with a smaller circumference. A large container will not be able to direct the liquid as exactly, while a smaller container ensures that only a small controlled stream is poured.

Tips For You:

  • Pouring the liquid suddenly all at once might cause it to splash or miss your container. Always do a small controlled stream at first.
