Abstract
(EN)
A measuring canister (11) comprising a container (12) and a cover (40) for storing particulate materials, and for dispensing a portion of the particulate material selected by the user. The interior of the container (12) having an open top (14) is divided into a storage compartment (30) and a measuring dispensing compartment (32) by a partition (26) having a notch (28). A generally planar flap (60) is hinged to the cover (40) having a dispensing orifice (46) proximate to the measuring compartment (32), with the cover (40) removably attached to the container (12). The flap (60) is capable of moving between a first position where the dispensing orifice (46) is closed and particulate material present in the storage compartment (30) may pass from the storage compartment (30) into the measuring compartment (32) as the present invention is tilted, and a second position where the dispensing orifice (46) is open and the notch (28) is closed, so that particulate material may be dispensed from the measuring compartment (32) through thedispensing orifice (46).
