[ EN ]

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:
1 . A measuring canister comprising:
a container having an open top and a generally planar bottom;
a partition having a notch, said partition disposed within said container so that said notch is adjacent to said top and divides the interior of said container into a storage compartment and a measuring dispensing compartment;
a cover having an interior surface, an exterior surface, and a dispensing orifice;
means for removably attaching said cover to said top so that said interior surface is adjacent to the interior of said container and said dispensing orifice is proximate to said measuring dispensing
compartment; and
a generally planar flap having a first end and a second end, said flap hinged to said cover so that said first end is disposed proximate to said exterior surface, said second end is disposed proximate to said interior surface, and said flap is movable between a first position where said first end is disposed to close said dispensing orifice and said second end is disposed proximate to said interior surface, and a second position where said first end is disposed away from said dispensing orifice and said second end is disposed to close said notch.
2. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 , wherein said partition is disposed generally normal to said bottom.
3. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 , further comprising handle means.
4. A measuring canister as defined in claim 3, wherein said handle means comprises an indented portion of said container disposed proximate to said storage compartment.
5. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 , further comprising means for removably attaching said first end to said cover when said flap is disposed in said first position.

6. A measuring canister as defined in claim 5, wherein said cover and said flap are each formed of a resilient material, and said means for removably attaching said first end to said cover comprises a snap-together type attachment.
7. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 , further comprising means for removably attaching said second end to said partition when said flap is disposed in said second position.
8. A measuring canister as defined in claim 7, wherein said partition and said flap are each formed of a resilient material, and said means for removably attaching said second end to said partition comprises a snap-together type attachment.
9. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 , wherein said container is formed of a resilient, visually translucent material, said partition is formed of a visually opaque material, and said cover is formed of a resilient material, and further comprising volumetric indicia disposed on said container proximate to said measuring dispensing compartment.

10. A measuring canister as defined in claim 9, wherein said means for removably attaching said cover to said top comprises a snap-on type seal.
1 1. A measuring canister comprising:
a container having an open top and a generally planar bottom;
a partition having a notch, said partition disposed generally normal to said bottom and within said container so that said notch is adjacent to said top and divides the interior of said container into a storage compartment and a measuring dispensing compartment;
a cover having an interior surface, an exterior surface, and a dispensing orifice;
means for removably attaching said cover to said top so that said interior surface is adjacent to the interior of said container and said dispensing orifice is proximate to said measuring dispensing
compartment;

a generally planar flap having a first end and a second end, said flap hinged to said cover so that said first end is disposed proximate to said exterior surface, said second end is disposed proximate to said interior surface, and said flap is movable between a first position where said first end is disposed to close said dispensing orifice and said second end is disposed proximate to said interior surface, and a second position where said first end is disposed away from said dispensing orifice and said second end is disposed to close said notch;
means for removably attaching said first end to said cover when said flap is disposed in said first position;
means for removably attaching said second end to said partition when said flap is disposed in said second position; and
handle means.
12. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 1 , further comprising volumetric indicia disposed on said container proximate to said measuring dispensing compartment.
13. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 2, wherein said container is formed of a resilient, visually translucent material, said partition is formed of a visually opaque material, and said cover is formed of a resilient material.
14. A measuring canister as defined in claim 13, wherein said means for removably attaching said cover to said top comprises a snap-on type seal, and said handle means comprises an indented portion of said container disposed proximate to said storage compartment.
1 5. A measuring canister as defined in claim 12, wherein said cover and said flap are each formed of a resilient material, and said means for removably attaching said first end to said cover comprises a snap-together type attachment.
1 6. A measuring canister as defined in claim 1 5 wherein said partition and said flap are each formed of a resilient material, and said means for removably attaching said second end to said partition comprises a snap-together type attachment.
17. A measuring canister comprising:
a container having an open top and a generally planar bottom, said container formed of a resilient, visually translucent material;
a partition having a notch, said partition formed of a resilient, visually opaque material and disposed generally normal to said bottom and within said container so that said notch is adjacent to said top and divides the interior of said container into a storage compartment and a measuring dispensing compartment;
volumetric indicia disposed on said container proximate to said measuring dispensing compartment;
a cover having an interior surface, an exterior surface, and a dispensing orifice, said cover formed of a resilient material;
means for removably attaching said cover to said top so that said interior surface is adjacent to the interior of said container and said dispensing orifice is proximate to said measuring dispensing
compartment;
a generally planar flap having a first end and a second end, said flap formed of a resilient material and hinged to said cover so that said first end is disposed proximate to said exterior surface, said second end is disposed proximate to said interior surface, and said flap is movable between a first position where said first end is disposed to close said dispensing orifice and said second end is disposed proximate to said interior surface, and a second position where said first end is disposed away from said dispensing orifice and said second end is disposed to close said notch;
means for removably attaching said first end to said cover when said flap is disposed in said first position;
means for removably attaching said second end to said partition when said flap is disposed in said second position; and
handle means.
18. A measuring canister as defined in claim 17, wherein said handle means comprises an indented portion of said container disposed proximate to said storage compartment.
19. A measuring canister as defined in claim 17, wherein said means for removably attaching said cover to said top comprises a snap-on type seal.
20. A measuring canister as defined in claim 17, wherein said means for removably attaching said first end to said cover comprises a snap-together type attachment and said means for removably attaching said second end to said partition comprises a snap-together type attachment.
