Hazelnut "bqmother": It looked like there was some difference in the size of these cups from the cups from my old set. So I compared. Sure enough, the 1 cup from this set holds a little bit more than my old 1 cup. All the others, 1/4, 1/2, 1/3, were the same. The only difference was in the 1 cup size. Trouble is, I have no idea which one is the right size...or even if it matters! The difference is perhaps a tablespoon or so. The set is attractive and it would be nice hung up in a handy spot (I haven't discovered a handy spot not already taken.) I do like the built-in nock so they could be hung on a thin bar or on individual hooks, but I find the handles a bit too short for convenience in measuring. They're nice cups, so I gave it a 4-star rating.
Henri Savin: I already own measuring cups in plastic. They are fine but the inking tends to fade away with washing.It is not going to happen with those.There are 4 measuring cups: 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1 cup.The size is clearly marked on the soft grip handles.They all attach to a hook and can detach easily from it.Some people complained about the handle that bends too easily but the problem seems fixed because mine feel solid.I definitely would recommend them.
Hervian Rose: This is a review of the new design Oxo Good grips measuring cups. I also have the old design, the"tippy" one with the bendy handle.I read through some of the old reviews, and got out my old cups to compare.The cup markings all wore off the old ones. 1 cup and 1/2 cup are easy to tell which is which but I sometimes have to measure 1/3 an 1/4 with another cup to tell for sure which is which.In the description of the updated design, the markings are specified as "permanent". I'm guessing that is a response to complaints of the markings wearing off so we'll see. I kind of picked at the markings with my fingernail but nothing came off at least easily.I set all the cups out and bounced on the handle and didn't find any of the cups from either set "tippy"There is a clear difference in the handle design and I couldn't bend the new one at all. I agree that the old one is a little "bendy" if you try, but why would you? All our old ones are intact after several years. (I don't know how long, enough time and use for all the markings to be completely gone.)The one thing I don't really like is the thick rubbery handle. They are so thick that when you stack them up the handles "fan" up and have a much higher profile for sitting in a drawer - less clearance. Of course if it didn't have the rubbery handle, it wouldn't be Oxo Good Grips.The only brand we have that stacks neatly is "Rubbermaid" and it is made completely of plastic. It does have the size embossed in the bottom of the cup so it will not wear off. None of our all-metal sets stack neatly, but they don't stick up as much and they have the size engraved so it won't go anywhere. They have the more "bendy" handles, but none of them have broken.I'm not sure why we need so many measuring cups but we keep looking for the perfect set.
H. Laack: There is a video at the top of this Amazon page that is worth watching. It details the changes made to these cups in 2010 and warns the reader away from any reviews written prior to that. Keep that change in mind if, like me, you often read the one and two star reviews first; as the company-made video documents, the older reviews talk about flimsy, bending handles.I can attest that the changes made have turned these measuring cups into sturdy, well-designed kitchen tools. The sizes are clearly labeled, the cups are easily removed from and returned to the loop, and the sizes are accurate. The only reason that I have given four instead of five stars for the product is the price. While these may well be worth the cost, $20 for a set of measuring cups is really very high, unless you are using them daily, over and over again. Still, they do look pretty classy, so I guess, if you are into the way your kitchen drawers look, then the cost would not be a problem. They do look like they will last a long time too, so maybe you will decide the premium price is worth it. At least you will be spending your money for a sturdy as well as good looking utensil.
@homemom: These are functionally and aesthetically perfect. They are a very nice heavy weight, very strong handles, gorgeous and easy to clean finish, and comfortable to hold due to the great grips... and yet I find myself reaching for my old acrylic pyrex set over them almost every time. Why you ask... two of the silliest reasons, but maybe something that would drive you crazy too. The main reason is that to save space I keep them nested, but the metal on metal sound when I pick them up or move them makes me cringe. It's a nails on the chalk board, fork across your teeth sound that I just hate. I think I'm going to toss them separately into my kitchen utensil drawer in hopes that I grab them more often. The only other silly small gripe is that I wish there were more of them (yes I realize this defeats the whole, keep them apart from eachother to avoid that awful sound reason) but my other set also came with 1/8, 2/3, 3/4 and it's just easier and faster to grab one of those. If OXO would coat the bottom of these with their great rubbery material and provide a few extra measurements I'd gladly pay double! If you're not a lazy sound affected weirdo like I am I bet you'll love them!
