Expert Reviews


What experts liked

The corresponding patented angled surface allows the users to read the markings of measurements by just gazing into the cup. It is easy to adjust the liquid amount and the corresponding measurements.
We measured a clear liquid (water), then microwaved it; measured an opaque liquid (barbecue sauce) to see if the marks on the angled ring would still be visible; and weighed various measurements of water on a kitchen scale to judge the cups’ general accuracy.
The handle is soft and nonslip for a firm grip. Cup, ounce and milliliter measurement markings increase convenience. Dishwasher safe. Set of 3, 1 each: 1-cup, 2-cup and 4-cup.
This set of three means you’ll always have the cup you need for large, medium and small amounts, and they neatly nest for storage.
They are microwave safe, so the user can measure the ingredients and subsequently heat any fluid for preparation of the recipe.
Simple and easy to use no bending to read the measurements when using this plastic measuring cup.

What experts didn't like

You can’t microwave fats in them, and measuring anything hot (like caramel) is out of the question.
The markings wear off after some time.

Overview

If you’re surfing an urge to cook or bake, ride that wave and get started! But before you turn on the oven or fire up your stovetop, make sure you’ve got some of the most important cooking tools on hand: measuring cups.

Cooking is basically chemistry. You need the right ratios of ingredients to concoct the perfect meal, or else you’ll wind up with flavorless cakes and badly seasoned beef. Measuring cups and spoons guarantee a picture-perfect result.

Measuring cups for dry ingredients usually come in sets of five, with measurements from ¼ cup up to 1 cup. Some measuring cup sets go up to 2 cups, including every increment from 1 cup and above. They’re usually made from plastic or stainless steel. The measurements are printed on, painted on or etched into the cup’s handle.

Measuring cups for wet ingredients look like a pitcher. There may just be one large cup with many marked increments of measurements or a set of cups for different sizes. Liquid measuring cups are usually made from plastic or very thick glass.

Measuring spoons will help you add the perfect level of spice to your dish. They typically come in sets of six, measuring from ⅛ teaspoon to 1 tablespoon. They are also usually made from plastic or stainless steel, with measurements painted or etched onto the handle.
