Mosaic Solid Floral Print Sibling Sets Review
PeaTee: I'm generally a big Oxo fan, but I don't particularly care for these measuring cups, particularly not at this price-point.They are stainless steel, which is great, but Oxo used that yucky black material that they started using a year or so ago, and it does not --despite what they say on the packaging-- NOT hold up to dishwasher use.At least not with our Bosch. I don't know whether our dishwasher gets particularly hot or something, but this particular black rubberized stuff that Oxo uses starts to break down fairly quickly and it ends up leaving black greasy smears on anything it rubs across. Yuckadoo.The other thing I don't care for with this set is that they don't nest nicely. If you're like me, you've got some cup hooks where you hang your measuring spoons and measuring cups-- so you can grab them quickly and get on with cooking. My other measuring sets hang nicely together. With this set the handles are too thick and they won't do that on either my small and large hooks.Altogether, these are nicely balanced. If you put them down, the handles don't make them fall over. But this is a set I'll have to hand-wash, and despite the fact that these are Oxo, I've got to say that you are probably going to be able to find better ones for less money.Pam T~mom/baker-in-residence
Peggy Jentoft: These OXO measuring cups look a little strange but work well, and do not tip over easily. Each cup does contain the the amount marked on the handle. The handles are comfortable but a little short. The slightly strange shape probably makes them better at preventing spills than the traditional cylindrical shaped kind of measuring cups. The shape is stable but looks a bit unstable. These are fine though I'll probably stick with my older cups which have longer handles and don't look like they are melting. I am revising my review to say that we are now using these all the time and they are fantastic for dealing with dry goods.
pm444 "pm444": As previous reviewers have already noted, the handles are not strong enough and they bend easily when scooping out brown sugar or even flour. While you can bend them back, it's still an annoyance and makes these unacceptable. The basic idea is great, since there are times when you need measuring cups that will scoop (unlike glass Pyrex measuring cups that are better for ingredients that you pour). However, since these do not really do the job, look elswhere. All Clad and MIU France (made in China, in spite of the name) make similar measuring cups and they receive positive reviews.
P. McWhorter: It is not that these are bad measuring cups, it is just at this price point I expected them to be exceptional. I did like the shape of them, and the cups themselves are fairly sturdy. There are several things, though, that I found poor. The first thing is that the handles are too short. For my hands, I found them awkward to hold. The Second issue is that I would have prefered them to have a small pour spout on them but the rim is even, with no pour spout. Finally, the set does not have 2/3 cup, nor 3/4 cup sizes.These are nice looking measuring cups, but there is nothing that makes me want to use them over my $5 walmart plastic ones.
P. MSakamoto "boy clothes": These are really well made measuring cups that, true to the branding, have good grips. However, they are missing two things we would like to see in a measuring cup. These are personal preference, and may not matter to many people. The details are below:Pros:1. Stylish looking but still functional in use.2. The handles are sturdy, have nice rubber grips and clear labeling.3. The cups all pour well, even though there is not a discrete spout on the rim.Cons:1. The one cup and half cup measures do not have intermediate markings for partial measures (e.g. 1/2 and 2/3 on the one cup measure). Also, they are missing any metric references. Many of our previous measuring sets have this handy feature that helps prevent using more measuring cups (and therefore cleaning more cups) than necessary.2. The brushed stainless steel finish is just rough enough that flour will leave a thin film of dust on it and sugar will also partially coat the inside even though it is thoroughly cleaned and dried. This isn't enough that it is messing up the measurement, but it just bugs us because our other cups don't do this.Conclusion:Not a bad set of cups. If the issues above don't bother you, they are great.
