OXO Mini Measuring Beaker Set:
Small measurements don’t need to be a big mess. The OXO Good Grips 4 Piece Mini Measuring Beaker Set features Beakers designed specifically for measuring and pouring smaller amounts of ingredients such as food coloring, extracts, lemon juice and more. The Beakers stand on their own, with fill lines below the very top, making it easy to set out ingredients before you start cooking or baking. The funnel shape and spout on the top of the Beakers make filling and pouring simple. When you’re done, all four sizes are dishwasher safe and nest for compact storage. Set includes 2 oz, 1 oz, 1 T and 1 tsp beakers with colorful, easy-to-read measurement markings.
It’s the Little Things:
At OXO, we consistently develop products that address even the tiniest of pet peeves, because we know it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. Here at OXO, we understand that sometimes baking is a science, so we looked to real scientists for inspiration. The Mini Measuring Beakers were designed to allow bakers to measure with precision and ease.
Features & Benefits:
The Measuring Beakers are the perfect way to get your little one involved in baking early. The narrow bodies are easy for kids to hold and the spout helps with controlled pouring.

Top customer reviews
The measurements are fairly accurate with some discrepancy between beakers. For example, I poured a full teaspoon into the tablespoon and it measured just above 1/4. Still, they are better than trying to gauge a measuring spoon. As expected from OXO, they are durable and very well constructed. They stack perfectly into each other just like a Matryoshka nesting doll (translation: Russian stacking egg) taking up less space than a stack of measuring cups.
On a side note, it's interesting how long it took to realize the usefulness of laboratory beakers in the kitchen. Luckily, you can drop these and they don't break!
Two quibbles, though.
First, the metric graduations are on opposite sides of the beaker. Normally, I hold the bottle in my right and and the beaker in my left, and I use the threads for the screw-top of the bottle to sort of hook against the lip of the beaker as I pour. That's great for imperial measurements, which're visible in that arrangement. But the metric measurements are on the wrong side -- in order to see the graduations, you have to turn the beaker around so the metric side is facing you, but then the bottle is right against the pour spout, making it really tricky. I have to either levitate the bottle above the pour spout with bracing it at all (tricky!), try to pour with my left hand (uh oh), or hold it normally and try to read the measurements through the beaker (inaccurate and annoying). Great for lefties who use metric; not great for righties who do.
Second, the beakers have different sets of units on them. One has tsp, one has tbsp, one holds one oz and has 1/4 increments, one holds 2 oz and has 1/2 oz increments. Want to measure out 1 3/4 oz? Too bad -- you'll need to measure one ounce in either of the larger two beakers and then measure out 3/4 in the second-largest. Totally unnecessary! There could just be 1/4 increments on both!
So what I do to get around the second point is to just figure out how many ml I need. Pouring a full teaspoon from the creme de violette bottle is really tough, so I just measure out 5 ml into the bigger one. Easy! But then with this method, you run up against problem one...
So, I use them constantly, but these flaws are pretty annoying!
When I am baking, I like to measure out all my ingredients before starting and I find this makes me more efficient and less likely to omit an ingredient (especially when baking with children).
I have used the larger ones for measuring 1/8 cup and 1/4 cup of liquid for different recipes. It is much easier to pour into batter slowly with these then with regular measuring spoons or cups.
The only reason these get less than 5 stars is because the units of measure aren't consistent across all beakers. The smaller units have Tbs/Tsp and the the larger units only have oz/ml. And there have been times when I've wanted to measure out 2 tbs+ of something and have to convert to figure out how much that is in oz/ml. It's not the end of the world as it doesn't happen often, but it is annoying when it does happen.
