Fashionable Kid Girl Letter Print T Shirt Review
Steward Willons: It seems that most of the previous reviews complain that the handles on the OXO measuring cups are too pliable (or "bendy" as most people prefer to say). In the ten+ years since OXO introduced this design, they have made some important updates. The handles are now quite sturdy. I'm not sure if the handles have also been extended, but I have not found them to be "stubby." Their width in comparison to their length makes them appear stubby, but really, the distance from the cup to the tip of the handle is equal to my other set of measuring cups - the ultra-fancy All-Clad measuring cups that are essentially miniature pots.The OXOs are weighty and I expect them to hold up over time. The styling is excellent, as is usual with OXO products. The one improvement that I would suggest is some sort of measuring marks on the interior of the cups. The All-Clad set is nice because it gives you marks so show increments so that you can, say, use the 1C cup to measure out a 1/2C. Yeah, the All-Clad set costs more than twice as much, so I'm being very picky here.Overall, this is a quality set and will surely be a big improvement on any sort of plastic measuring cups that you're now using. Highly recommended.
Storm: Having owned the original set of these OXO Stainless measuring cups, the biggest fault were the thin handles. The handles would often bend under weight. Well apparently OXO actually listens to their customers' suggestions because these newer models have much more sturdy handles. I haven't been able to bend one yet. Another improvement is the lip - the lips on the older models were straight cut and had a very sharp angled grind on them. The new cups, while not rolled anything that extreme, have a slight outward lip which makes their edge much less extreme. The cups are also graduated instead of at a straight 90 degree angle. A sneaky little change I didn't notice until I was trying to take the cups apart - instead of having an open ring and threading the cups out like off of a keychain, the handles of the measuring cups are an open "C" shape so you can remove the cup from the ring, instead of the ring from the cup. A subtle improvement, but a nice one.Otherwise everything else is pretty much the same. The handles retain their "gripy" nature, the measurements written in color on the handle. I look forward to using these for decades to come, just like their siblings.
*~ Sunshine ~*: I am so pleased with my set of four OXO stainless steel measuring cups! I have many other sets of cheaper and expensive plastic and glass cups but have never had any in stainless steel. I really appreciate the large, covered handles that identify the size and make using them easier and more comfortable. Another nice feature is the slightly elongated shape of the cup to aid in scooping and pouring/emptying of the contents. They are dishwasher safe and stain resistant. They are easily removed from the ring that keeps the set together and nest quite nicely to store. I've had no problem with them bending when I've used them. Everything has it's limits but they appear to be pressed well and seem very sturdy between the cup and handle.The only thing I'd ask for might be more sizes, but these will be in my kitchen for (most likely) as long as I can cook!
Susan Tunis: I'm a baker. Baking requires precision. It's all too easy to settle for working with sub-par equipment. Recently I took a look at my ancient, grungy, yellow plastic measuring cups and thought, "This won't do."The OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Measuring Cups are such an order of magnitude in improvement. First, there's nothing like stainless steel in the kitchen. Now I don't feel like years' worth of... gunk... is soaked into plastic and flavoring whatever I'm currently measuring.The design of these measuring cups is both practical and pleasing. The "Good Grips" part of the product name refers to the comfortable and graspable rubber grips on the measuring cup handles. The capacity of each cup is clearly and permanently marked in a bright color. Measuring cups can be loosened from the connecting ring individually. And the slightly rounded interior of the cups means there are no corners for food to get stuck in. Plus, they're completely dishwasher safe. Why did it take me so long to make this simple switch?
Suzanne Amara: I have the OXO all-plastic measuring set, and it's pretty much the most used product in my kitchen. I love it. So I was eager to get this stainless steel version to try! And mostly, it didn't disappoint. It just looks great, as most OXO prodcuts do. The steel feels heavy-duty, and it shines! I could see my grandchildren using this, when I have them! However, I think I'll still use my plastic set more. This is because there are 6 sizes of them, and only 4 of the steel ones. I actually do find myself using the 2/3 and 3/4 cups a lot, which are not included here. Also, these do not have inner marking of intermediary sizes. For example, the plastic one cup has a half cup line, which makes it very nice when I am measure a cup and a half of something---I don't have to dirty two measuring cups. The steel ones don't, although I could still guess pretty well. I guess it comes down to if you like very well made solid kitchen tools. These are that, they look great and they measure fine. But they aren't quite as user friendly as the less high level ones!
