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.

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.

This is a No-Brainer value. Cup sizes are molded right into the handle so they won't wash off. Every imaginable English size with the metric equivalents molded right underneath. It even has a "Smidgen" and a "Pinch". The detachable rings are great for storage.

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.

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.

The unusual sizes will come in handy, for sure. But the reason I'm buying new measuring cups is because the ones I get at Wally keep on breaking. These are even thinner plastic so I have my doubts they'll hold up. Still, for the price...

I would have done 3 stars if purely on the product and ignoring the price. The 4th star comes from "value" because they're cheap.

Update: three years later, I'm going through my old reviews. This was one where I was wrong and I've upped it to 5 stars. However, I also notice they are selling under the name Prepworks for about double what I paid... so keep that in mind. Still, they have held up extremely well even to constant play-use by our son who came into this world only a few months before these came into our house! I absolutely LOVE the odd sizes! So much more useful than I would have imagined. None have broken. A couple spoons got lost, which sucks, but that's our fault. They are clearly marked and once you get used to the pattern you realize there is method to that as well! You quickly learn which colors go with the more common sizes and you don't have to read anything. No, really... I'm still using these almost every day and I have no regrets in this purchase. I'll be buying again if they go on sale, if only to get my missing spoons back!
