Mrs. Night Owl: These metal measuring cups are well made, having a smooth finish and size-marked rubber handles. I like the wider openings on the top for keeping the overspill of flour and/or sugar off my counters. My only peeve with these is that I like cups that nest well, and these are a little tricky. If you want them to fit in a normal shallow island drawer, you can't pile the handles on top of eachother. You almost can, but the top handle rubs a little as you close the drawer. The fix is to fan the handles out while the cups are still nested.They've made several trips through the dishwasher and with no problems at all. Recommend!
M. Wood: I've had a lot of measuring cup sets and this is one of my favorites. I have not had an issue with the handles bending that some of the reviews mention. Maybe there was a defective batch? In fact my favorite thing is that the handle and cup are one solid piece of metal. Most of the metal measuring cups I've had have a handle that is a separate piece and attached to the cup. Every one of them have broken off eventually - especially the 1-cup size. I don't think that will happen with these. They flex ever so slightly, but I have not had one bend with my use. The handle is wider than most, which should also make it stronger. I am not always a fan of the Oxo handles because they are so bulky and take up so much space in the drawer. But in this case they made the handles shorter than usual so they fit nicely in the drawer, and the rubber grip is comfortable but not overly thick. I also like how the cup is angled slightly, making it easier to scoop.
My Fake Name: ****These babies are never going to bend at the handle or anywhere else under ordinary use, even digging into hardened brown sugar.(Speaking of which, the slightly spoutlike shape is well-designed for just that.)****Speaking of which, there's nothing to break because each is a solid piece of what I assume is steel, as opposed to their being two pieces welded or riveted together. And it IS solid, i.e., it's thick-gauge metal.Speaking of which, these are so heavy that even the 1/4-cup measure sits up just fine without tipping over towards its handle. (The one-cup version, empty, weighs 2-1/8 ounce. The 1-cup measure weighs 4-3/8 ounce.)****Speaking of which, the handles of OXO Good Grips Measuring Cups, Stainless Steel, Updated Design are clad in that black rubbery stuff that OXO is so obsessively proud of. One benefit is that, in the unlikely event the metal gets heated so hot you couldn't handle the handle's heat, the rubbery stuff will provide insulation. Another benefit is that it's a little bit grippier than if your oil-covered hands were trying to hold plastic or even metal. I was concerned that this arguably unnecessary part would be a net negative because nasties such as bacteria and cooties could hide and proliferate in the space between the metal and the rubber, but the seal is pretty darned tight. This surprised me. (Also, without the rubber handles the method of collecting the cups into one unit for storage, which is to snap them onto and off from a plastic ring, simply would not work with bare metal.)Speaking of which, the product is dishwasher safe.****Speaking of which, the finish on the inside has a very slight texture to it, in the form of rings. It seems to me these are bound to make cleaning at least a little bit more difficult, not to mention pouring out the contents. The bottom is smooth, so I don't understand why OXO would go out of their way to add these rings (and spend extra money for them, which costs us, the consumers). For this I subtract 1/17 of a star.Speaking of which, I have two more complaints, both about the size designations that are inlaid into each of the four handles, viz., 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1. First, there's room on each handle (they're identical in size and shape) to include not only the Fahrenheits but the Celsiuses, i.e., 60 ml, 80 ml, 120 ml, and 235 ml. We Americans should have switched from the all-day-long stupid Imperial system of weights and measures to the metric system back when Jimmy Carter was president, and we still should. Quick, how many tablespoons in 1/8 cup?****Speaking of which, I'd have paid a little extra for a 1/8-cup cup, for which I subtract 5/17 of a star from 5.Speaking of which, at $19.99 for the set these four measuring cups are pricey, at least compared to the same four sizes in theQuality 4 Piece White Measuring Cups - Molded-In Lettering - BPA Free, which sells for $1.49, which makes the product under review 13.4 times more expensive but probably not 13.4 times better, for which I subtract another 5/17 of a star. Going the other direction, you can spend 13.4 times more than what the product under review costs for theCrosby & Taylor (Tin Woodsman Pewter) Super Post, Measuring Cup and Spoon Set, Featured in Paula Deen, Dragonfly (SUP5), which is 13.4 squared, or 179.56, times crazier than the cheap set.Speaking of which, for those of you who expect this from my Amazon reviews, I did go ahead and go beyond the usual testing. Unlike, say, a flat-screen TV, this set of measuring cups is entirely waterproof. I know because I tossed both into my neighbor's swimming pool, recovered them, let them dry for 96 hours, and tried to operate both. I do not recommend that you yourself perform this test unless you have a surfeit of operable flat-screen TVs to the tune of one, which I myself now no longer have.Five stars minus one seventeenth of a star for the pointless texture minus five seventeenths of a star for the missing one-eighth cup measure minus another five seventeenths of a star for the high price equals approximately four point three five two nine four one one seven six four seven, which I'm going to go ahead and round to 4 stars.****

The cups are somewhat rounded leaning towards an oval shape making scooping out and measuring dry ingredients relatively easy.The cups come with a satisfaction warranty guaranteeing replacement or repair.The measuring cups are dishwasher-safe making clean-up easy.Recommend.
N. Beitler "Avid Reader": I just received these measuring cups and have already used them a lot! I love to bake and a set of measuring cups never seem to last long around here because I use them so much. The sizes are 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1 cup. I think I will miss having a 2/3 and 3/4 cup especially for things like peanut butter and shortening. I like the rubber handles and the measurement is clearly printed on the handle. The cups wash up nice in the dishwasher too. Some may like that there is a clip to keep the cups together, however, I bake so much that I don't use the clip. One thing I have noticed so far is that when there is something heavy, such as peanut butter or brown sugar in the one cup measuring cup, the handle seems to bend down a bit.I will know more about this product in a few months and plan to update this on how these cups stand the test of time when they are used daily.
