Title
(EN) Measuring canister
Abstract
(EN)

A measuring canister is disclosed for storing any of a variety of particulate solid particulate materials, and for dispensing in a controlled manner a portion of the stored particulate material selected by the user to be any portion up to maximum volume, while preventing spillage from or dispensing of the remaining particulate material. The interior of a container having an open top is divided into a storage compartment and a measuring dispensing compartment by a partition having a notch. A generally planar flap is hinged to a cover having a dispensing orifice proximate to the measuring compartment, with the cover removably attached to the container. The flap is capable of moving between a first position where the dispensing orifice is closed and particulate material present in the storage compartment may pass from the storage compartment into the measuring compartment as the present invention is tilted, and a second position where the dispensing orifice is open and the notch is closed, so that particulate material may be dispensed from the measuring compartment through the dispensing orifice.
