Maura Ann Rubies: These are wonderful stainless steel measuring cups-durable without being too heavy, with an attractive brushed finish. The measurements are are not engraved into the steel, so I never have to strain my eyes to read the numbers.I can easily unlatch the size that I need since each handle has a "C" shaped hook on the end with a narrow opening, enabling me to quickly grab the one cup I want without having to undo a bothersome ring (these hook onto a one-piece hard plastic oval). I used to hate fiddling with a ring so much, that I would drag my entire set of cups along to use just one-that was a complete hassle.Though the cups are easy to take off, amazingly, they have never come apart on their own-great design!The measurements are colored (1 c. is yellow, 1/2 c. is green, 1/3 c. blue, 1/4 c. red) hard plastic numbers set (flush) in black, heavy rubber-coated handles. These handles are very sturdy with no bending issues, whatsoever. They get machine washed and come out looking just as good as the first day I opened the package.I find these MUCH better for my children to use while cooking. The numbers are big, clear and colorful. They add an element of fun and a "grown-up" feeling that wasn't the same as when they would use the cheaper plastic cups. The colors are fun for me, too. They are nice and level, allowing me to even use them to cut out biscuits.Again, this is a great product that I heartily recommend for cooks of any age. The apparent improvements in the OXO stainless steel cups have made these a JOY to cook with.
Mayflower Girl "amazon-junkie since 1996": My Mom has an old set of OXO cups which I always use when I visit her house. The funny thing is that I'm the one who loves to cook and bake, and she hates to, yet I usually end up using some cheap dollar store measuring cups. Well, a month or so ago, I bought a scale on Amazon which I love... but it's still easier for me to use measuring cups. These are the stuff dreams are made of (if you dream about measuring cups). They are heavy and substantial. They easily come on and off the ring that keeps them together. They are simply a pleasure to use.BUT, if you want to be an accurate baker, you probably need a scale. According to King Arthur Flour, a cup of flour should weight 4.25 oz. Well, I weighed a cup from these and it was 5.8 oz. Big difference. (Of course, I've never had any issues using measuring cups, even though everybody says that if you're serious you should weigh things. :))This would make a great wedding gift. Might be looked down upon at first, but the bride and groom will use them for years...and think of you fondly every time.
M. Buehl "Informed Mama": Just a note: Many of the previous negative comments about bending handles are based on an older version.This updated design is very sturdy and very heavy! This set is much heavier than my other stainless steel set I own, to which I'll compare this set. These are almost a little too heavy/clunky for my liking.If you're familiar with OXO brand you know about the rubber grip handles. I find those a positive on a tool like a can opener but on these more of a drawback. I for one do not feel 'grip' is an important factor on measuring scoops. It also tends to collect things, like flour. I'm the sort of person to just do a rinse/wipe if I'm measuring dry goods and throw them back in the drawer,but can't always with these due to the sticky nature of the handles.I also prefer my other set without the tapered design. It's hard to estimate a partial measure (like half a cup from the one cup scoop) if the bottom is tapered like these. This set also doesn't offer any measure markers on the one cup to do so where my other stainless set marks these (ie. 3/4c) on the largest, 1 cup. I haven't had any tipping issues with the tapering though, probably because of the weight of these.These are nice if you're looking for a heavy duty set of durable measuring cups but overall I prefer my other set. The nice thing about OXO brand, they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if you're not happy, they'll make sure you are.
M. Dillon "Just A Reviewer": OXO makes some great products and I usually lean towards them over other brands. In this case I had a chance to receive the newly designed Good Grips Measuring Cups and I quickly scooped up the chance!What I like about these measuring cups is first of all they are made well. The rubber handles are well attached...I tried to pull them off and they appear secure. Additionally, the cups are each marked with clear, large numbers so you can quickly glance and see which is a 1/3 cup verses the 1/2 cup. I don't have much use for the ring that holds them all together so I opted to take them off and use one cup at a time.I recommend the item!
