√ Liquid Level Indicator
This battery operated gadget will make a noise (or if you want there is one that sings) when the liquid is reaching the top of the cup.
Another tip is to remember the importance of contrast - so if you are pouring coffee put it in a white mug or if you are pouring milk pour it into a black mug.
√ Bold Print Measuring Cups
The bold and large numbers on these measuring cups makes it easy to see. You can also purchase a set of measuring cups with each cup being a different color so you can identify the size of the cup by its color. There is also a bold print 2 cup measuring cup that is available.

Measuring spoons for low vision can be purchased either with big numbers on the spoon or color coded with each spoon being a different color for easy identification.
