I like the bright colors.
Minneapolis Gal
I also like that I can keep them together if I want, or I can take the ring off.

EDIT: I no longer recommend these as gifts, and removed two stars from my rating.

After the second run through the top rack of our high-end dishwasher, the writing is almost completely gone from the cups we've used -- the cardboard backing they came with stated these ARE dishwasher safe.

I've uploaded a picture to the product page comparing one of the cups we've washed twice to one that was washed once.

Since there are only four sizes, it's still easy to differentiate between them even with the writing worn off, but these certainly aren't giftable.
___________________________________

As other reviewers have said, the vibrant colors of this Farberware measuring cup set are cheerful, and they make it easy to spot which size you're reaching for, without doing a double-take.

I was reluctant to buy a set of cups like these, but the high prices of glass measuring cups, paired with the positive reviews of this set made me willing to take a chance.

Unlike my last no-name set, these are made from a hard plastic, not a flexible one, which makes them sturdy -- i.e., the handles won't bow under the weight of liquids or dense ingredients like sugar. And unlike silicone, you don't have to worry these will fade or become brittle after too many runs through the dishwasher.

The sizes are printed in a bold, silver font that contrasts well with each of the colors, making them easy to read, unlike some sets in which the numbers are embossed. They've all survived a run through the top rack of my dishwasher without the print coming off.

Best of all, they truly do nest: they lay flat enough to set in a slim profile drawer.

Enjoy the colors for appearance sake. An added bonus is that the colors make it easy to grab the right measuring cup. With my stainless steel set I was always mixing up the 1/4 & 1/3 but not with these! They make me smile when I use them (little pleasures...).

I like the cups appearance but I just discovered the 1 cup measure does not agree with my old one as far as contents. I bake cookies for a home bakery operation and wanted more than one flat top cup. I just mixed up 3 batches of cookies using the same procedure as I always do only used the Farberware 1 cup measure. The recipe calls for 5 cups of flour but after completing the first batch I felt the dough was softer and didn't hold up as well. Since the only change was the cup, I weighed 5 cups of flour using my older stainless cup and then weighed 5 cups of flour using the Farberware cup. My digital scale told me the Farberware measured 3 ounces short for the 5 cup total. Anyone else experience this problem?

The good: Cheery bright colors make it easy to read the size you're grabbing. I have a set of tupperware measuring cups that I have to hold just right to the light in order to make out the size so it'll be nice not to have to do that with these. I used a magnetic clip thing and just keep these stuck to the side of my fridge so they are easy to grab and especially if my hands have flour on them, I don't have to stop and wash them to get into the drawer for another measuring cup. I can just grab these off the fridge. I also thought the price was fairly reasonable.

The bad: These are hard plastic. I would recommend that you never try to use them for hot liquids as I think that'll most likely cause them to crack eventually.

After using these several times, I found I miss the "extra" measuring cups like the 2/3 and 3/4 cups that come with some other sets. I just found it slightly annoying to have to either use the 1/2 cup + the 1/4 cup to get a 3/4 cup measurement or to have to use the 1/4 cup three times to get a 3/4 cup measurement. It's especially annoying if you are measuring out things like shortening, molasses or peanut butter.

These are fine for every day measuring but I'm glad I have a set that includes the extra cups for when I bake. I'll remember that for the next time I buy measuring cups.

The colors on these are vibrant and work well to identify the right size. They are good quality and holding up well.

These are well made and bring a nice bright touch of color to my kitchen. I love that they can be seperated for easy use.

I'm not sure why I like these so much, but they're simple and well-designed. While metal or glass are sometimes better for certain applications, I'd pick this kind of hard plastic for dry-ingredient measure every time. Also the different colors mean that I never have to read the labels, as each color becomes associated with its size.

I like that these are color because you can grab the right size more easily. The colors also add a little fun to the kitchen. Seems like the plastic is sturdy, not like the cheap plastic measuring cups.
