Independence Day Series American Flag Print Family Matching Sets Review
Dani Arteri: I have a plastic set of measuring cups,Progressive GT-3520 International 19-Piece Measuring Cup and Spoon Set, and I love them because they come in so many different measurements (from 1/16th all the way up to 2 cups). However, I am always plastic-conscious and looking for alternatives. These OXO measuring cups are nice, especially since they are dishwasher safe (so are the plastic ones, but I don't like putting them in the dishwasher). They are very sturdy and the handles are easy to grip. However, they have two flaws. First, you only get four sizes of measuring cups, and it's always nice to buy a full set all at once instead of in parts. Second, they don't nest very well. The plastic set that I have stacks MUCH better and saves a lot more space. I keep my measuring cups in a drawer and cannot stack all four of these OXO measuring cups- my drawer won't shut. I CAN do that with 4+ of my plastic ones. If you don't mind their poor stackability and the lack of many sizes of measuring cups, I would definitely recommend these. OXO consistently makes high-quality products at an affordable price.
Dan Sherman: I really like these measuring cups in that they are made of sturdy stainless steel and are quite thick, handles included. I have used largest cup on the stove to melt butter and chocolate, and the thickness of the metal (along with the covering on the handles) is appreciated. I am not sure what the problems have been with the handles - you could bend these (just as you can bend a spoon with some effort) but it wouldn't be that easy to do.I can't imagine measuring cups being much better than these - highly recommended!
Darena Shopz "darenashopzatoutlookdotcom": OXO has redesigned their stainless steel measuring cups with sturdy rubber grip handles.The cups come on a ring for easy storing and organization but each cup can be snapped off and on for easy use.I really like the shape of the cups. There are no lips on the rims to get in the way of filling or emptying. The rims are smooth so it's easy to scrape flat the contents when measuring. The shape of the cup is slightly elongated for scooping and the bottoms are flat and stable so they sit on the counter without tipping even when full.The main thing that I like about them is that they are stainless steel; no more cheap plastic measuring cups for me.These are a nice heavy gauge stainless with sturdy rubber grip handles. OXO has great products and these are high quality.Very pleased with them.
Darla Mcgranaghan: I have no problems with these measuring cups. I have seen complaints about the handle bending when scooping brown sugar and other firm products but since I spoon and level that is not an issue with me. I find the grip very comfortable and easy to grip. They nest very nicely and the weight is not an issue.
David Marks "norcalidave": This updated set of OXO stainless steel measuring cups (with stronger handles) is, unfortunately still not adequate, at least not for the high price that OXO charges for them. They are a stylish set and I like the easily gripped, plastic-coated handles, but this product has some severe design problems.First of all, why would anyone want or need stainless steel measuring cups? I'm usually no fan of plastic, but straight-sided plastic cups are often more appropriate than these slant-sided stainless cups. You can't use these OXO cups to heat liquids in a microwave, because they are metal. And you can't accurately extrapolate "partial cup" ingredient amounts because these cups are tapered/slanted, which means that what looks like "half" of any one of these four cups, really isn't half.Furthermore you can't easily use this set on a stove top (to warm a liquid), because of their smaller, more unstable bottoms, plus the plastic coating on the handles gets too close to the flames from a gas burner, and may melt. Over the years I've found that the best compromise as far as measuring cups, is to have a couple of different-sized pyrex glass cups, along with a complete set of light weight plastic cups. The glass measuring cups can be used in the microwave and having the in-between measurements on the outside makes it easy to extrapolate amounts. I've never had any problem with my glass measuring cups, but for measuring out smaller amounts of dry ingredients, the plastic cup sets are perfect.So my question is, "Why did OXO decide to produce this stainless steel set of cups"? Furthermore, their price is higher than either high quality plastic cups or even larger glass cups. And as I mention above, these cups are tapered, with the base being a smaller diameter (and thus less stable). This stability problem also means that it's rather difficult to set even the largest stainless cup on a gas range top, without having it tip over. Plus these OXO cups don't stack in a cupboard drawer as compactly as straight-sided cups...All in all, these cups are an improvement over the original version (because the handles are now stronger), but this set still has all the above design problems!
