Baby Girl Sweet Solid Jumpsuits Review
Jed Shlackman: These OXO stainless steel measuring cups have an updated design that includes a strong, solid handle with a grip-friendly rubber-type handle covering. The slightly tapered design is apparently to make scooping and pouring a bit easier, and if you are using the measuring cups as a set you probably don't need to half-way fill one, as this set includes a 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1 whole cup. The size is clearly marked on the handle. Since the handles are quite thick these don't stack as nicely as many other measuring cups do. It would have been nice to make the handles a bit slimmer and perhaps have included a 1/8 cup. These are pretty good overall, though I feel the regular price on these is a bit steep and some cup users may not like the feel and thickness of the handles, so I'm not giving a full five stars.
Jeff: These are measuring cups, nothing more. The "updated design" is more of a gimmick. When it comes to stainless steel I would rather have the steel and not some rubberized handles that hold dirt and come off with little effort.Because of the tapered design they can become top heavy and topple over. Bad news in a kitchen.
jen-marie: Yes, the handles are surprisingly bendy. It is true that they don't bend as much if you hold them down by the cup instead of the end of the handle, but on the other hand, what is the point of getting "Good Grips" if you can't hold it by the grippy part?Also, the 1 cup is just that tiny bit too wide to fit comfortably in my kitchen drawer. Those of you who don't live in apartments, or who have kitchens less than 20 years old or so probably won't have this problem, however.I got these as a second set of measuring cups, because in some recipes you just don't want to stop in the middle to wash up. I thought I wouldn't care that it didn't have the 2/3 and 3/4 cups in it. I was wrong. If you're thinking the same, think carefully.
Jenn B "Happy Mom": These are great measuring cups. Very sturdy stainless steel. Easy grip handle with the amount clearly marked. They stack in each other well. Great grips so you don't drop anything. The cup has a slanted design, I find it easier for scooping/pouring. I really like these.
Jennifer Ray: I've always used plastic dry measuring cups, most likely because they are less expensive. Having recently begun experimenting with cheese making, I've begun to replace some of my plastic kitchen tools with stainless steel, which is recommended for cheese making. After years of great experiences with the Oxo brand, the OXO Good Grips Measuring Cups seemed ideal for me.I used them for the first time last night while making a Coconut Cake from scratch. One thing that really stood out for me is how nice it is that the top of each cup is wider than the bottom. You'd think this would make them topple over, but they didn't. Instead, I found it easier to pour ingredients in each cup without spilling much around them.Being stainless steel implies that the cups will be pretty durable. The fact that they are also heavy duty stainless steel just lends me more confidence that these measuring cups will remain useful in my kitchen for many years.Each cup has a soft, comfortable grip and is clearly marked with the cup capacity. They nest very well together and are easily removed and attached from the ring that holds them together.All pieces are dishwasher safe.I am very pleased with these measuring cups and would recommend them without hesitation.
