1pc Baby Boy Sleeveless Stripe Giraffe Elephant Print Jumpsuit Review
B. Colonna: I am a very big Oxo fan, and with good reason. Their products tend to be of excellent quality, and usually are not expensive. And they also listen to their customers.Case in point, these redesigned measuring cups. The original design was OK but had issues, particularly the handle which was longer and could bend. The redesigned handles are shorter and stronger. The labeling has also been changed. Previously the marking were in ink, like most measuring cups, and of course the ink rubs off over time. The new markings are molded into plastic on the handle.The set includes 4 cups (1, , 1/3, and cups). While these cups cost more than your typical plastic measuring cups, they are very nice. They are made of stainless steel. The handles are also metal, with a plastic covering on most of the handle. Each handle is marked: 1 cup, cup, 1/3 cup, and cup.The handles of all four cups connect together with a plastic ring. Unlike most cup sets, the cups can easily detach from the ring by snapping off and back on. The Oxo design is more of an open notch where the ring snaps in, rather than the usual "shower curtain" type ring that snaps together.Being stainless steel, the cups look nice. So nice that you could actually leave them out in a utensil set, etc. More importantly, they handle very nicely, ingredients like flour, sugar, etc. tend not to stick to the steel. Cleanup is a breeze by rinsing with water, or when you've gotten them stick/dirty, throwing the cups in the dishwasher.I also checked and found that these are very true to size. Some cup sets are approximate and if you measure against a "known cup" you'll sometimes find a plastic measuring cup set is close but not completely accurate. The Oxo set is very close to perfect, in that the cup si a true cup, and so on.While you can certainly find cheaper measuring cups, these are very nice, and worth the price.
B. Davis "The Happy Hermit": I have very poor vision so compared with my other set of stainless measuring cups, that are identified by an etched number that I have to use a lighted magnifier to see, these are a breeze to identify. They are nice to use, balanced I suppose, and the rubber grip helps too. The short rubberry handles are way more comfy in my hand than the longer, narrow, steel handles of my old stainless cups (which are now in the donation box). The cups attach to a ring by way of a notch in the cup handles. I don't keep the cups on the ring because to me it's a hassle wrenching them off to use them. but I can see where having them on the ring would be handy for hanging if that is the method of storing.
Bearcat: So what is important when reviewing measuring cups. Here are my thoughts. Ease of handling. These are very easy to handle with a grippy holding section. Always felt secure no matter what I was pouring into them, even when using some liquids. Quality construction. These are solid little measuring cups and seem like they should last years. Ease of cleaning. These are very easy to clean due to their design. Storage. They stack into each other which is a no brainer for measuring cups. Overall these measuring cups tick all the right boxes and are very reasonable priced. Recommended.
Beatrice Izzey "Nanny Dog": the gentle slope makes it easier to wash; the straight angle ones stuff gets stuck at the angle.good for portion control projects - you can just keep the scoop in the cereal box, etc.the black rubber theme, you either love or hate. I don't really care. Also I have a bunch of OXO products already.
Bee: These are nice sturdy measuring cups, and the company has clearly fixed the handle problem. These measuring cups have sturdy handles with nice clear quantity markings on the handle. I do not know if the quantity indicators will hold up over multiple trips through the dishwasher, but so far so good.While these are very attractive cups, they would be more practical if they included lines on the inside to indicate the halfway mark. Without these markings, it is necessary to use (and wash) more cups than might be necessary if, say, the half cup could also be used to measure a quarter cup. I was hoping to use these to replace my cheap plastic measuring cups, but I actually think the plastic ones with the halfway marks are more useful. These are definitely more attractive, and would probably be pleasing to those who care about style.
