My last set of measuring cups had sadly dwindled down to 3 different sizes. It was getting difficult to measure 1/3 of a cup out of a 1/4 cup measuring cup. I found this set in my search, and it seemed interesting that it seemed to have a variety of sizes. Ah-ha! For someone whose sets seem to disapear with the socks and tupperware lids, it seemed great. (My personal theory is that aliens need these items to power their space ships :). These cups are sturdy, 'nest' well, and stay that way. No spilling all over the cupboard because they were touched. And the number of sizes makes recipies easy! Having just 2 people to feed in our home means reducing recipies, and this set has sizes that will actually allow us to measure odd amounts.

I was a little hesitant to order this after reading some of the reviews about the set melting in the dishwasher. But after browsing through several measuring sets, I still decided to give this one a whirl given the price and design, and boy, am I glad I did! The set arrived in perfect condition - measurements have been more than I expected. I especially like how the markings will never fade since it's set on the plastic. I've washed all of them in the dishwasher and had had NO PROBLEMS whatsoever.

I purchased this set when our current measuring cups were down to three or four cups and spoons. This set is made of sturdy plastic, and has every size you could want and then some. With this variety, you'll never want for another cup or spoon again. Really great set, and a great price.

I have had a small set (1/4 cup thru 1 cup) of these measuring cups for two years and they are always my first choice in the kitchen so when I found this set I couldn't resist. The small fraction spoons allow you to cut back any recipe. Buy them even if you don't like the colors because you will love the cups.

These cups have a high gloss finish that cleans very easy. They stack tightly together to save space and store well. The large diameter and short height give them a stable base so I no longer knock over the measuring cups in the cabinet.

The review about these being flimsy is wrong. These cups are made from PET where most are made in polyethylene. PET is a more durable material. It is harder and has a higher melt temperature. They are thin but the strength of the material allows for that. These are just as strong as any other kind I have used if not more so. If used sensibly they will last a lifetime.

No much to say about this, its a 19 piece set and its perfect for the home user that does a lot of recipes cooking that calls for precise measurements. The only down side about this set is that it is made from cheap flimsy plastic Made in china(especially the smaller spoons). If you are looking for something that will stand up to a lot of abuse then these may not be for you. But for every day home use they may last a while.

We like these measuring cups and spoons but my husband feels they are cheaply made and may break easily. However, we're rating 4 stars as it's still a good value for the money. I've never had such a complete set of measuring cups or spoons, and it's in fact a bit overwhelming when I reach for one or drawer space. I suppose it's better to have too many than too few so I've taken out the ones I don't anticipate using often (1 1/2 cups, 1 3/4 cups, etc.) so when I'm grabbing in a hurry while cooking it's easier to find. That's the only possible downside I can think of, but like I said, it's easily remedied by removing the unusual measurements--again, easier to do that than to have an incomplete set.

I really like the variety of sizes. They come in handy especially for baking. However, unless you have better than 20/20 eye sight you can not see the measurements printed on the handle. Had they made them in a color that was different from the color of the cups-spoons, it would have been much better.

As a trained cook I am pretty picky about my kitchen equipment. This set of measuring cups and spoons is the best I've ever had. There are nine spoons that go from a 1/32 teaspoon (a smidgen) to 1 tablespoon and include 1/16 teaspoon (a pinch), 1/8 teaspoon (a dash) and ½ Tablespoon. Because I am on a gluten free diet, I often bake only for myself and in smaller amounts, the smaller measuring spoons come in very handy.

There are 10 measuring cups, 1/8, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 1, 1-1/2, 1-3/4, and 2 cups. I love that I can measure 1-1/2 cups and 1-3/4 cups without using another measuring cup. I also appreciate that this set includes a 3/4 cup measure, many sets do not.

Some of the other features that I like:
1. The spoons can be used as a flour leveler to scrape over the top of the cups.
2. The sizes are marked with raised lettering and are not printed/painted on. That means the lettering won't wear off after multiple washings. Been there, done that, more than once.
3. They are weighted properly so that when I set them down they lay flat. This is important to me since I am disabled and I can't hold things with both hands and measure at the same time.
4. There is a nice mix of colors, red, white and gray alternating, which makes them pretty but also makes it easier to tell close sizes apart.
5. The cups are labeled in cups and milliliters. No conversions.
6. They have large handles for a more secure grip. I love the paddle like ends that act as a place to put my thumb or a securer way to hold it in my hand.
7. They are top rack dishwasher safe. The spoons I simply rinse off and dry by hand since they will melt if they come in contact with the heating element of the dishwasher.
