Fashionable Kid Girl Letter Print T Shirt Review
ChristianChick'sThoughts: These are easily the best measuring cups I've ever owned. They are sturdy and easy to handle. At first, I was concerned that their shape would cause them to be unbalanced ... and when they're empty, they do tip over easily. But as soon as they have something in them, they're quite balanced. Some reviewers have mentioned that the handles bend too easily. Yes, they are a bit bendy, but not to the point that would bother me--and certainly nothing like the cheap metal cups on the market. The only thing I don't like about these cups is they don't nest very well. The cups all fit inside one another, but the handles stick up. The picture definitely doesn't accurately represent how they look when stacked together. But overall, I really like these cups, and I definitely recommend them.
Christopher Barrett "Evil Corgi": I say initial because I can possibly foresee the handles loosening and not staying clipped onto the ring. I'll explain:These measuring cups have a kind of hook on the handle that is open. The hook has rubberized sides. This hook slips onto the included plastic ring. The cups get wedged on and don't come off. To pull one off, you just give it a nice tug or twist. But if the rubberized part wears out, or if the ring gets worn, then I can foresee these not staying on the ring.But since I am replacing a terrible plastic set, these are like Ferraris comparatively. They are hefty and good quality construction. The stainless steel is welcome. I have since replaced all of my measuring utensils with stainless steel or glass. No more plastic.I will update the quality as I use them, but my initial impression is that they are very good and worth the price.
Christopher Mayo: TheOXO Good Grips Measuring Cups, Stainless Steel, Updated Designlook great, they're sturdy, and they're dishwasher safe. What's not to like? Well, if you look closely, you can see in the image that the large is not flat, but angles upward. I am sure there is some kind of brilliant design idea behind this, but in practice what you have is a measuring cup that is inexact. It works OK for powders (assuming that the angled area is part of the 1 Cup), but for liquids it is not so great, and obviously one of these has to be incorrect. Either the angled section is or is not included in the 1 Cup.In addition, I cannot figure out how they got the cups to stack so well in the photo. In our drawer, they don't fit together terribly well, and the handles stick up to catch whenever we try to open it. Frankly speaking, I have some cheap plastic ones from many years ago that are made better than this. Sure, I'd like metal ones with the great handles, but it isn't worth giving up the ability to actually use them.The low rating on this review might seem a bit harsh, but after all, it is a measuring cup that cannot possibly measure correctly. That seems to fail the basic measure (nice pun, right?) of the product.
Christopher Powell "Christopher": I'm at best a limited amateur in the kitchen, but one of my dad duties is to make pancakes on the weekend. This is usually as advanced as I get to the point of using measuring tools in the kitchen. In my defense, my pancakes are usually kid exciting having bluleberries, bananas, oatmeal, chocolate or a combination.... (i digress)In a bisquick world, measuring cups count. They all work and work well - I've not pounded through measuring as hard as the pros that have left reviews about bendy handles. in my careful use, the handles arent bent and they have an easy thick grip that is comfortable. I imagine if you are an individual with arthritis or other disablility in gripping thin handles, these would be very excellent measuring cups. Without disability, they still are confidence inspired grippage.The tapered shape of the cups is useful in scooping a measurement, in comparison to a 90 degree sided cup. Balance didnt seem to be affected when sitting onthe counter..
Christy "MommyOfRedHeads": I love having stainless steel kitchen gadgets since they tend to last longer than plastic. These cups are heavy duty and I haven't had any problem with them tipping over. These are dishwasher safe but I wonder how long they will last due to the rubber handles. If you want these to last a really long time, they can't go into the dishwasher. Some reviewers complained about the flexibility of the handles but mine are stiffer. Not sure why the discrepancy. These have since replaced my pamper chef sliding measuring cup and the old plastic ones my husband has been holding onto for years.
