C. Klaassen: I have been looking for well designed, heavy duty measuring cups at this price point for quite a while I am just thrilled with these cups! They are a solid weight, with non-slip handles and a little curve out at the mouth which makes leveling a breeze. I know others have said the earlier version of this cup had "bendy" handles but you would be hard pressed to move the handle on these cups. It is great when manufactures listen to us! The cups do only come in the four standard measures (1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1 cup sizes) and I would have loved to have an 1/8, 2/3, 3/4 cup included but at this price point I think the set is a very good value.Recommended.
C. Kleist: They are what they are, measuring cups. But they're great. I've been using some 10 year old Kitchen Aid plastic cups which partially melted in my dishwasher long ago - still functional, but barely. These cups from OXO are like all of the other OXO products I own: Quality. They've held up well in the dishwasher, the included ring keeps them together nicely, and they scoop well through tougher items like brown sugar and whole wheat flour. I know they're just measuring cups, but they're the best I've found so far.
ck "moonshadow": OXO's updated stainless-steel measuring cups are a handy kitchen essential. I already own a similar set from Williams Sonoma and was able to put the OXO set through its paces and make several scoop-to-scoop comparisons over the course of several cooking marathons. Overall, they held up well and the measurements were accurate, so I can recommend them. A quick note on storage - the shape of the bowls means these take up more space than straight-sided measuring cups, but even nested they are probably compact enough in height to fit in a shallow utensil drawer; they fit in our shortest drawer.As for ergonomics, I like the relatively wider handles and the rubberized grips, and don't mind the tradeoff of not being able to use these cups on the stove as mini-pans for melting butter, which is something you can do with an all-metal cup. Note that Amazon currently sells the updated version of this set, which means the handles flex but are durable and not saggy. I'd had a chance to handle the earlier design and opted against it because of the flimsiness of the handles, so I'm glad to be able to say that problem has been fixed. All four cups work very well when you need to dip into dry ingredients.The bowls of these OXO cups are tapered, which can make it slightly easier to measure ingredients that call for "packing," such as brown sugar. The relatively wider openings also make them raw-egg-friendly, which can be a boon when baking, whether you are separating eggs or simply wanting to crack and inspect each egg before adding it to batter. In either case, the edges are sharp enough to crack the shells efficiently.
Clann Mother "Clan Mother": I'm not sure if OXO has changed the design or not since all the negative reviews about the handles, but I love these measuring cups. The handles are FIRM, not flimsy, and I like the shape as they are easy to pour. I too found that you can melt butter in them on the stove(which solved my microwave issue) I've been changing all my "plastic ware" out lately but this can be an expensive endeavor. I was replacing my plastic measuring cups every year for one reason or another...but I'm looking forward to having these OXO ones around for awhile. Worth the price. I'm very happy with the stainless steel. Going to be looking for other OXO measuring products in the future.
C. MacPhail: .If you like heavy, solid feeling kitchenware, you'll probably like these.PROs:- Stainless steel- Heavy - feels like quality- Grippy handles- Highly visible labels (1/4, 1/3, 1/2, etc.)OKs:- Stove-top use is possible - like tiny saucepans- Dishwasher safe- The handles can bend, but not real easilyCONs:* No gradation lines. (2-1/2 cup measurement means dirtying two cups)* Expensive- No microwave use~~~ Comments & questions welcome ~~~
