Until I started using this measuring cup, I didn't realize how much effort it took to measure liquids. I'd pour something into a cup, bend down to look at the marks on the side, add or remove liquid, then bend down again to check the measurement. Measuring is so much more convenient with this OXO cup since you are able to view the inside marks from overhead.
Another reviewer mentions a problem with nesting. I have 2- and 4-cup OXO cups and haven't found this to be a problem: Just make sure the handle of the smaller cup is positioned adjacent to, not directly above, the handle of the larger cup.
The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because it's plastic, which limits the types of liquids that can be used in this cup.
After about 20 minutes of kneeding in the machine, I checked the consistency of the dough and found it very wet. So i got out the cup and my old pyrex cup and my metal cups and did a little checking, after measuring many times back and forth between the cups, i found that the OXO cup is off by quite, over an 1/8 of a cup, nearly a quarter. 1 Cup of liquid in this cup, measured almost 1 and 1/4 cup in the Pyrex. This messed up my bread and really irritated me.
I'm not one to normally write these type of reviews, but thought I should share this bit of information. So for those of you who need an accurate measuring cup, avoid this one. I'm taking mine back to the store and getting back my $7.
And everything changed.
Okay, the sky didn't turn plaid. The space time continum didn't unravel. Instead, I went from an awkward system of filling shotglasses up to the top of the logo and adding in a teaspoon and a half, to a quick, simple system of just measuring the exact amount I needed without thinking about it.
The angled measuring cup is just brilliant. I had no idea how useful it would be until I used it. Trust me on this one. It'll change the way you cook - for the better.
I've found these sturdy plastic cups are top rack dishwasher safe as well as occasionally microwave safe. The quantities are clearly labeled and easy to read. The moulded front pour results in no spills or dribbles.
Basically, if you're looking for a way to measure fairly precise quantities under 4 ounces, I can't recommend the Oxo Measuring Cup highly enough. Try one - it's cheap - and just see if you don't replace all your measuring cups with Oxo.
Would have got 5 stars if it were made of thicker/denser plastic, or even glass. But I don't expect it to last very long before it cracks....
