Size: 2-Cup
Actual rating 4.5 stars.

I have to assume this is a rather new product, since I don't recall ever having seen a pyrex cup like this before. I picked this cup over the weekend at a local store.

There's no real innovation here. OXO's angled measuring cup series has had similar 'Read from Above' graphics for years, but marrying that idea with a Pyrex glass quality cup is nothing to sneeze at. I assume this cup will have the longevity of my other Pyrex liquid measuring cups as well which are going on 20 years of use.

If you've never used the 'Read from Above' type measuring cups, they are fun to use. As you look down into them, you'll see an ever expanding series of labelled rings, and you keep pouring in the liquid until it reaches the desired amount. The sides of this cup are angled outward to make looking inside easier. Please remember that with all Pyrex measuring cups, these are only for measuring liquids. For dry ingredients, you need a set of measuring cups which can be levelled off.

This cup does take a bit of getting used to as you'll find yourself leaning over to look through the sides just out of habit. This brings me to why I deducted a half-point on the rating. The measurements can only be read easily from above. If you look in from the side all of the numbers are printed backwards as they are meant to be read only from the other side of the glass. A minor annoyance, but one I thought worth mentioning. (also work mentioning is that the aforementioned OXO cups *can* be read from both the inside and the out - the tradeoff of course being they are made of less durable plastic)

I'm generally very pleased with this cup and do recommend it.

to screw up something so simple as a measuring cup.

1. The flared design means that measuring lines get closer together as the volume gets larger. This makes it very difficult to measure precisely.

2. It's almost impossible to pour from the spout without dribbling liquid down the side of the cup.

I purchased this item b/c I needed a way to measure 500ml with out having to use two measuring cups or measuring twice. The idea of reading from the top is good being that you don't have to bend over to make sure liquids are flush with the line. However, you cannot tell where the top of any liquid is by viewing from the top. Liquids cling to the sides of the containers and give incorrect readings when viewed from the top. I tested this against three other pieces of measuring equipment and not only was I wrong every time I measured with the new cup but I found that the marking are really incorrect and I always had more liquid that the cup read. If you measure with an old Pyrex measuring cup then pour the liquid into the new cup you will find that the readings don't match. If you look from the top the reading may say 200ml but if you then view from the side the liquid level will read 275ml. This really causes a problem when precise measurements are critical. Besides, the top reading is not useful when working opaque liquids or solids.

I had the straight sided 4 cup Pyrex, which broke. And when I decided to replace it, I decided to try the sloped sided one since the straight sided one had a spout that you could only pour from very slowly and carefully--and I always had at least a bit of spill. Well, this one is worse. I'm so tired of spilling hot liquid all over the stovetop when I try to pour from the cup. As a cooking or mixing implement, OK, as a pitcher, no good.

Best measuring cup so far. I use both the 4-cup and the 2-cup, whilst my old stand-bys (also Pyrex) collect dust.

The read from above works very well and there doesn't seem to be any of that parallax view problem like with standard measuring cups.

I have noticed, though, that when pouring thinnish water-like liquids from it you need pour slowly enough to keep the liquid channeled within the pouring spout, or large amounts will flow over the rim and down the outside of the measuring cup, pooling below its bottom. You may as well be pouring from a large drinking glass.

Pyrex did a nice job with this. It is very easy to read from the top, and if you really want to verify that the meniscus is at the correct level, you can read the cup from the side as well. The markings are large and the graduations are easily identified from either the top or the side. It is also very easy to clean. Note, though, that the text is printed to be read from above, so when you view the markings from the side, the text will be backwards, but still readable.

I also have a similar Oxo, polycarbonate measuring cup that has markings that are readable from the top, but I find the Oxo more difficult to read and much more difficult to clean.

The Pyrex is a keeper.

I purchased the Pyrex 2-Cup Measuring Cup with Read from Above Graphics expecting a useful tool. What I got was a liquid measuring cup that will not pour properly. Don't waste your time/money.

Seeing the level from a standing position is very different for this old cook. I don't know why I haven't tried it sooner, but I'm glad I finally did! I totally love reading the levels from the standing position (especially since I'm old and don't like stooping in the kitchen any more).
