About Us

Who we are and what we do

There's something you should know about us. We can't stand the status quo – especially when the status quo stinks. That was literally true back in 1982 when you had two options for getting garlic into your meal: chop up a fresh clove and have your hands smell for the rest of the day, or settle for a couple of thin, dry flakes tapped out of a plastic container. Four our founder, CEO and Famous Inventor David Holcomb, there really was not option. He had to do better, and he knew he could.

Fast forward a few decades and David's first creation, the Garlic Machine, has become Chef'n. We're a growing Seattle-based company with more than 250 product Patents worldwide and a single mission. We want to make better tools so you can make better food. It's what drives our in-house design team to reinvent the utensils and gadgets that most of us take for granted while we're cooking and cleaning. It's what attracts the terrific, talented people we've welcomed into our Chef'n family. And it's what compels us to tell everyone we meet about the innovation Chef'n products can bring to their kitchens.

Is anyone listening? Well, the design awards and magazine covers seem to say yes, but for us the true test is in the homes of real people around the world. So put one of our inventions to work, create something delicious, and we look forward to hearing from you about your Chef'n experience.

This was given as a gift for a friend's birthday. I have the previous version of collapsible Chef'n measuring cups - 2 sets - and love them. This set adds 2 things that my set does not have. 1 - pinch spouts, and 2 - a different mechanism for keeping them all together.

1 - I do not believe the pinch spouts are really all that cool. They are difficult to pinch and I can see doing it often will stress the plastic over time. Additionally, these are *dry* measuring cups and pinching them to "pour" them with things like flour inside just really won't occur. If you use them for liquid measure (bad, bad you!), you won't want to fill it up to the top if you are going to pinch them and then you're not really measuring right.

2 - The second thing, which I believe is a VAST improvement, is the ring to keep them together. The previous ones came with a small silicone "piece" (which strongly resembles a certain male body part) and the piece was jammed through all the holes. It always felt too short and I rarely use the pieces for either of my two sets which means they're just strewn about in my drawer. This new set nests better (the handles are curved as well) and the ring allows you to connect them if you want to.

The colors are nice, a little darker than they appear online, but still pretty. It's three different shades of green and one yellow.

I recommend them and would buy them again for myself or for others. They would be 5 stars if the spout made more sense.

But there are so many reasons they do not work for me. I'll first say, I bake a lot and also have 4 and 5 year old girls. I purchased based on the reviews and for the following reasons:

Colors - I loved the idea they were different because I always get the 1/3 and 1/4 cup mixed up if I'm not paying attention. Still love the concept.

Collapsability - haven't used the feature because I found that after you wash them they take awhile to get dry in those crevices. Plus, wasn't really concerned about space so much and you have to make sure they pop out the right way.

Plastic - I'd had the hard KitchenAid plastic measuring cups before and prefer plastic with the kids. Plastic on these is okay but forget it if you use anything in them that remotely has oil because they are then hard to clean. I used one for Crisco and I am now sorry.

Scoopability and measuring - I'll make up this new word because it is the main reason I am no online looking for some metal ones. Because I bake I use a lot of flour and I find the edge on these to make it hard and you can't get as clean of a measurement when swiping the top (not that I'm that picky about measuing that way but I found it hard to even do a "best guess" with these).

Hope this review helps others. Overall, probably will work for many and I know my kids will enjoy using them. But for me, back to looking at reviews for something else.

I bought these and the Progressive International 5-Piece Set Collapsible Measuring Cups, Green at the same time; both have pluses and minuses. I prefer the magnetic stacking of the Progressive cups, versus the plastic ring that keeps the Chef'n Sleekstor cups together, as it's a minor pain with the latter to get the measure you want without the others falling off. Plus you get one additional 3/4-cup measure with the Progressive cups, at a slightly lower price. However, the measure labeling on the cups is a lot better on the the Chef'n Sleekstor cups - big embossed characters on the measuring cup themselves, and embossed on the handles as well. The Progressive cups have the measure stenciled on the handle, and I can see that wearing off with time; a number of reviews have commented that they do exactly that. The pour spouts are a useless gimmick, since if you have the cup filled to the top with a liquid, pinching it will cause some of the liquid to overflow.

If I had to choose one or the other, I'd pick these Chef'n Sleekstor cups, but the Progressive cups are a decent alternative.

One year after purchase, one of the cups ripped as I was closing it for storage. Neat concept, and I loved the space saving collapse feature, but apparently standard use, including dishwasher top-shelf washing and collapsing for storage is too much wear and tear for the silicone to last past a year. 5 stars for concept reduced to three for durability.

These aren't accurate. Due to an accidental losing count of how many cups I was measuring out of something, my easiest way was to weigh what I'd measured out, compare it to the grams weight according to the nutrition label (i.e. a cup was to weigh 120 grams) and then voila, I'd know clearly if it was 5 or 6 cups in there.
Except that the numbers made no sense. So I measured out a cup of the flour, and then weighed that, and found that the weight was off by about 30 grams. This ended up equaling somewhere around 2 or 3 tablespoons.

So, these are great if you've not got a lot of storage space. Until now, I've really liked the collapsiblity factor. And if you're only looking to measure generically, they're great. But if you're baking and need to be precise.....well, forget it. I'm very new to baking, and couldn't figure out why the cupcakes were always a little too moist, and the pancakes were great that one time (the time I used a different set of measuring cups) but a little too thin the other times.

If I weren't creating a blend of flours (for gluten-free baking) where each has a different weight per cup, then I would simply convert all the recipes to require me to weigh, and not measure. But that's not the case, so these cups must go.
