J. B Kraft "lonestargazer": A set of 4 stainless steel measuring cups with the accustomed OXO attention to design and manufacturing quality. The stubby handles are coated with a silicone-like material that allows a firm grip on the unusually short handles while taking up minimal room in a drawer. By heft, they do seem to be somewhat bottom weighted to reduce risk of tippage. Other measuring cups we own are generally cylinder or modified cone shaped. These are slanted or opened on the side away from the handle, which make scooping flour or sugar or ground coffee easier, as well as making the gradual pouring of liquids into delicate sauces easier. They also have a nice flare around the lip which reduces dripping of liquids.All in all, the only reason I took I took a star away is they lack an internal or external mark at one-half the measure, which I find convenient.Although probably a bit better suited to persons with small hands and strong fingers because of the stubbiness of the handles, this also makes for compactness in the kitchen drawer. While they are oven (500 degrees match) and dishwasher safe, I would not use them on stovetop to melt chocolate or butter. Sizes are labeled with different colors on the handles -- the four sizes make it unlikely an experienced cook will confuse them at any rate, and they come on an easily-unlocked ring for storage.RECOMMENDED
J. Chendea: It took one swift "whack" by my toddler and the cup was flying off the handle. I'm tossing these and I'm sorry I've ever bought from OXO, with all the problems I've had.
JDP: When looking for reliable measuring tools to support the latest fabrication of good eats in the Man Cave kitchen I glady jumped onboard to take these Oxo measuring cups for a test drive. They certainly look the part of being a valid measuring device. It didn't take me long to realize these puppies were certainly not ready for prime time. I gotta admit I do like the rubber coated handles with the easy to read portion size emblazoned in red. The individual steel cups are seamless and apparently stainless.Unfortunately that's where the happy dance ends. When using heavy ingredients the handles bend. No matter what's inside the cups, they tip over when filled. Lastly, valuable real estate in the gadget shelf is taken away because there's no stacking these guys. At twenty buckazoids I find this Oxo product overpriced for what it does not provide. There are better options out there folks.
Jed Shlackman: These OXO stainless steel measuring cups have an updated design that includes a strong, solid handle with a grip-friendly rubber-type handle covering. The slightly tapered design is apparently to make scooping and pouring a bit easier, and if you are using the measuring cups as a set you probably don't need to half-way fill one, as this set includes a 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1 whole cup. The size is clearly marked on the handle. Since the handles are quite thick these don't stack as nicely as many other measuring cups do. It would have been nice to make the handles a bit slimmer and perhaps have included a 1/8 cup. These are pretty good overall, though I feel the regular price on these is a bit steep and some cup users may not like the feel and thickness of the handles, so I'm not giving a full five stars.
Jeff: These are measuring cups, nothing more. The "updated design" is more of a gimmick. When it comes to stainless steel I would rather have the steel and not some rubberized handles that hold dirt and come off with little effort.Because of the tapered design they can become top heavy and topple over. Bad news in a kitchen.
