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!
David Wihowski: I love metal measuring cups for one reason. You can use them on the stove. No you don't cook in them. But if you need 1/3 C melted butter, you measure it into the cup and put it on a low burner. You can heat water for softening gelatin. If you don't care about making another dish dirty then use plastic measuring cups. But I would rather have 1 set that has more ways of being used.I also like the grippy handle and the balanced feel of these measuring cups.The one problem is that the handles bend sometimes. If you make a deep scoop into packed brown sugar you may have to straighten the handle afterward.I'm OK with straightening the handles occasionally because I like them so much otherwise.
Deborah Verlen "Deborah": If you like a good solid measuring cup then look no further! I was looking for a set of measuring cups to use as a scoop for my dog, cat and bird foods. These are stainless steel and strong. I've used plastic ones and the handles generally snap. The handles on these are nice in that they feature non-slip handles. When scooping the pet food you don't lose your grip and spill kibble or seed all over the place. They do come with a plastic ring that you can use to keep the cups together and then when you need one you can easily slip it off. I don't really need this feature, but it is a nice way to keep them together.
