The knick cup has a spout with a small opening that can be adjusted. This means that the user can adjust the spout for use whilst seated or lying down. When the spout is straight, the cup is suitable for use whilst seated. When the cup is slanted, it is suitable for use whilst laying down. The spout has a diameter of 4 mm, making it suitable for thin liquids such as coffee, tea and soft drinks. The quantity of liquid can be regulated by partially or fully covering the opening in the lid with a finger. The more the opening is covered, the less liquid can be drunk. The cup has a measurement scale, so the quantity of liquid can be measured.
