Infinite Mind "Brian": This measurements come on a ring with rubber soft handles. I have another set from different brand but these are my favorites. They are nice and deep allows for easy pouring.Nice set makes a good gift also.
Inna Tysoe "Inna Tysoe": I already have some stainless measuring cups. The problem is that when scooping rice and other things out of containers the handles on those measuring cups bend.Which is why I got these Oxo good grips and they are really nice. They are made of much thicker gauge stainless steel so the handles don't bend. They are quite curvy and flare out at the top instead of the sides being 90 degrees. This makes them easier to fill by pouring since the sloping sides draw whatever you are filling the cup with into a wider opening . It's also easier to pour the contents out of them.The rounded shape also makes for easy cleaning, nothing gets lodged into the creases around the edges at the bottom.They have nice comfortable rubber grips in a bright colors. The numbers aren't printed but actually embedded plastic so they won't rub off after frequent use. The set comes with a rubber coated ring that the cup handles clip into with moderate pressure which enables them to stay together much like a key ring.Overall these seem good. Much better than my previous set. Strong, sturdy and they seem to be a quality product that should last a long time.
JackieVT: In just a few short days, these have become our go-to measuring cups for dry ingredients. In addition to being noticeably heavier than plastic cups, they have very comfortable handles, are well balanced, and with their flat bottoms, they sit solidly on the counter when being used.Before using them, I compared measurements with the ones we already have (several brands, including Betty Crocker) to make sure there would be no surprises and they measured the same volumes.Having quality kitchen accessories improves the cooking/baking experience and these stainless steel measuring cups are a pleasure to use.So why 4* and not 5*? I took off a star for the combined reasons of a)really wish a 3/4 cup measure was included (one of my pet peeves about most measuring cup sets) and b)using the attached ring (for storing the cups together & separating them when in use) was not as easy as advertised; I have since tossed that out. Neither of these are reasons to not buy these cups. I can easily recommend them and had I been able to give 4.5*, I would have.
Jana Taylor: This is a nice basic set of measuring cups, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1 cup. Rubberized handles for gripping and each one is clearly labeled - so that makes these an excellent basic set if you are not looking for additional sizes like a 1/8th, 2/3rds or 3/4ths cup measure. I have another set that has all these sizes, and this set was as a supplement because I find you need two of the popular sizes in some cases.Some reviewers have talked about the handles being flimsy but that is not the case if it once was. These handles are not at all flimsy. They would be very difficult to bend in fact. These measuring cups will in all likilhood outlast me!
Janet Perry "Needlepoint and Bargello author": I have a litany of problems with dry measuring cups that's almost as big a the sets with missing pieces in my drawers. The sets don't stay together, the handles come off, the flimsy plastic breaks, the sizes are hard to read, they are lightweight, they don't fit in my ingredient containers, they don't sit flat, the ceramic chips or cracks, and they aren't beautiful.Heavy stainless steel with molded rubber-coted handles, these cups aren't coming apart any time soon. They have a beautiful shape,circular but with a flared front that makes it easy to pour out measured ingredients. The very top edge flares to make a lip. They look cooly beautiful and elegant.The bottoms sit flat on the work surface and the handles are wide and well-padded.Along with being beautiful, they have great features to make them practical. The handles all have the size on them, each marked with a different color. Not only is this much easier to see than labels in the same color as the handle, but it's another visual clue you have the right size (if it's green it must be 1/2 cup).All to often I've gotten dry measures that have a ring to hold them together. With every other set you face a dilemma. You can keep the ring on so the set stays together, but then you can't use them. You can take off the ring but then you lose it before the cup is washed and you have no way to hold together the set.OXO's ring is a solid oval of plastic. It won't come apart. The cup handles all have keyhole-shaped openings. The ring runs through the top of these holes, but the cups won't come off on their own. You take the cup you need, slip it off the ring, and then easily replace it after washing. Unless you remove all four cups from the ring, this ring won't get lost.This set has the standard 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1-cup measures. It would be even better if it had a 1/8-cup measure, but even so it's the best set of dry measures I've ever seen. And like all OXO products, the price is great!
