Top Customer Reviews
This OXO set is from the Good Grips line, which places silicone inserts on common kitchen tools to give more comfort and less slip (as well as heat shielding, depending upon the specific tool.) As a general rule, OXO Good Grips products are well-made, reasonably-priced, and make functional performances over other products. Sold in a quantity of 4 measuring cups, the sizes you get are 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1 cup, respectively. The body is made from a relatively thick gauge stainless steel, with silicone inserts on the top, and hard plastic inserts on the bottom. The markings are done using laser-engraving (which is less durable than hard engraving) and each cup has only one marking. There are no internal half markers like many other products have. Unlike other measuring cups that are held together using a ring or chain, these are designed to stay together with the use of small magnets located in the tip of each handle.
The fit and finish of these are excellent, as are the ergonomics. They are comfortable to hold, and like other OXO Good Grips products, they give a heckuva good grip even if covered in slippery oil. The flared lip at the top makes these easy to get a consistent leveling without excessive mess, and all of the edges have been machined consistently so there are no sharp angles remaining to cut skin on. The use of magnets to bind these over the standard O-ring or chain is ingenious in design since it is theoretically far more convenient (and therefore, time-saving.)
The MSRP on these is abut $20, but only 4 sizes are included. This is a BIG problem because the Bellemain and KitchenMade sets come with 6 pieces, are of the finest quality in their respective class, and yet they cost about the same. Further, many products in this price range use the more durable hard-engraving and have multiple markers (including internal half-way markers), and if only 4 sizes are included, the importance of these middle internal markers seems even more important! Given the nicer grips and the magnetic design, I could look past this if the magnetic design worked better than it did. But the magnets used are extremely weak. They do not generate enough force to hold these together, let alone stick to a metal object like a fridge, and I have included a video to show just how weak these magnets are. This issue is made worse because these measuring cups do not sit deeply inside of each other, and the only area of contact when stacked is the handle area, of which only about 10% of that is making contact, and by nature this makes the entire deal very unstable. Further, OXO did NOT drill loop holes into these in the event one wanted to use a ring with these, which makes these less flexible. Finally, the 1/4 and 1/3 cup sizes are unstable...the handle is too heavy relative to the body and if you are measuring some lighter ingredients, these will not lay flat on a flat surface. This can get frustrating fast.
So while I think many of the design ideas in this OXO Measuring Cup Set offer potential improvements over conventional designs, there are a couple pretty significant issues that prevent this set from reaching its full potential. The weak magnets is the single biggest problem since it is the only possible method you can use for binding these when stacked, and that's a pretty critical element. With there being so many high-quality measuring cup sets available at this price (not to mention how many of these other brands include two or three extra sizes, plus more detailed markings in a more durable engraving), I cannot recommend this OXO Good Grips set.
===CUSTOMER FEEDBACK NOTE TO OXO...===
If OXO reads Amazon Reviews to get customer feedback, I hope you consider making some minor revisions to this product and releasing it as an updated generation. This has the potential to be one of the finest measuring cup sets on the market, but only if the above-stated issues are addressed..
The two best features are the magnetic handles which hold them in place (she loves that!) and most importantly, the etching of the sizes directly on the steel. The etching is smooth but will never rub off, the way all of her printed ones have in the past. She'll always be able to quickly know if she's grabbing the right one.
