Model Name: Ruler and Thickness Sticks
|Thickness Sticks||Custom Made|
The 12-inch wooden ruler is used to help estimate dimensions in inches. For example, the ruler would be used to estimate the length, width, and height of a piece of cornbread, and the length and width of a piece of meat or poultry (height would be estimated from the thickness sticks).
The thickness stick set comprises eight white plastic sticks with the dimension of 3"L x 1"W x 1/8"H for each stick.
The thickness stick set is used to help estimate the height of solid foods such as meat, poultry, and cheese.
