I decided to try the Oxo angled measuring cups because it looked like a logical design that would simplify the measuring process. To an extent, they have lived up to that expectation... but the plastic construction feels cheap, and is sometimes a problem during use.

Ease of Cleaning
Being plastic, these cups can be scratched if scrubbed with a rough sponge. While they are dishwasher safe, I worry that the markings will eventually wear off the plastic cup. Also, the unique angled shape creates some hard to clean areas that are simply not present on traditional measuring cups.

Durability
The best thing about these is the fact that they will not shatter when dropped. While I have my doubts about long term durability of the markings and the plastic cups, I have not had problems to date. I do not put them in the dishwasher, so I can not speak to durability with dishwasher use.

Design
The angle shape allows the user to measure liquid without the awkward neck twisting or leveling to get an accurate measure. The liquid is then easily poured from the cup with the aid of the spout. The handle is comfortable and grippy.

That said, there is a downside. The lightweight plastic -- while durable -- can be a detriment to use. On several occasion I have clumsily knocked the cup prior to pouring only to have the lightweight cup tip over... an annoying problem I haven't had with the heavier glass cups which seem more stable.

Also, the shape is complex and the plastic is not very conducive to in-cup mixing or whisking... so if you plan to use the measuring cup as a small mixing bowl, glass is the better choice.

I use these often, but I still need and use my glass cups too.

I like this measuring cups angled feature, I can read the measurement from the side or the top.  I don't like that it's plastic and it is showing some wear, I've had it a couple of years now.  The handle is very comfortable, something I like about all the Oxo products.  I like this one, but I know it won't last forever like my Pyrex measuring cup!

nice measuring cup set

By

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

The OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set is really convenient to use because they do not take up too much space like other measuring cups that are used to measure liquids. They are able to stack inside one another. They are also clear to read the measurements on the side of the measuring cups. You don't have to struggle to read the numbers.

These are also really easy to keep clean, since I just put them in the top shelf of my dishwasher. This always gets them clean, and I don't have to worry about them breaking or cracking at all since they are sturdy.

Ease of Cleaning
These are very easy to clean because I just put them in my dishwasher.

Durability
I keep these all stacked within each other in one of my cabinets. They seem to be durable since I never had a problem with them breaking or cracking when they hit against other items in the cabinet.

Design
I like that these are designed to stack inside each other. This is a great feature because it really helps to save space.

Great measuring cup set!

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I absolutely love the OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set. I do a lot of baking in my kitchen and have dropped by glass measuring cups on a number of occasions. I have broken several measuring cups this way and really needed to find measuring cups that were both sturdy and had a way to get a good grip on the handles. These OXO cups have both of these features. First, these measuring cups are both sturdy and accurate. I have dropped these a couple of times and they have not chipped or cracked. Second, I need to be able to get a good grip on my measuring cup and these cups have this feature as well. It is easy to grasp each measuring cup and these do no slip as I use them. Finally, I feel like these measuring cups are very accurate and the measurements are easy to read. Overall, I continue to be impressed with OXO products. These measuring cups do the job and they're easy to use! I would definitely recommend these to a friend.

Durability
The no-slip handles are awesome!

Love these measuring cups

By 

from Oxford, CT

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I love these measuring cups! You can buy all 3 in a set which is great because you do not have to wash in between measuring different liquids. They are the best measuring cups by Oxo. They make measuring volumes of liquid very easy. I highly recommend them. They are also easy to clean and dishwasher safe which is great and great for mixing and measuring. The best thing about these measuring cups is you don't have to bend or kneel down to check the measurement since they are angled. It sounds minor but once you get used to it you'll love it and wont want to go back to regular measuring cups. The only issue with these cups is that they are plastic so you cannot put them in the microwave. They are a decently hard plastic so you don't have to worry about them not lasting long and the handle is very comfortable to hold. I highly recommend these measuring cups especially for their awesome price!

These are a really great set of measuring cups

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I really enjoy cooking and baking. I do all of the cooking in my household and even though time can be limited, I like to cook from scratch. This helps to improve my family's diet and keep frozen and pre-packaged foods down to a minimum. I am always looking to try new recipes and experiment with ideas. As I like to follow step by step directions, having the exact measurements to ensure optimum results, is extremely important to me.

This set of 3 OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set is a must have for anyone that does any cooking or baking. I use these on an almost daily basis. It may sound silly, but there is a lot to like about these measuring cups. Firstly, I like that the measurement units are clear to read. The numbers are in bold, red lettering. This helps ensure that the exact measurements are used every time. I also like that the handles are soft and easy to grip. This works great for when needing to slowly add the ingredients. As an added bonus they have both US and metric measurements.

Cleaning is pretty straightforward. The only thing that I have noticed is that occasionally food items can get stuck on the angular grooves and so this does require a little extra effort to ensure the cups stay clean.

These OXO Measuring Cups are perfect whether you are a beginner or an expert chef. I consider these a staple of my kitchen and could not be without them.

Sturdy measuring cup, not sure I care about the angled part.

By 

from USA

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I know the angle is supposed to mean you can measure liquid by looking down at the top to see the measures, instead of looking in from the side. The problem is I don't do that-I find I've got better control if I'm at eye-level with the liquid. So it works just fine as a measuring cup, just not as the product was intended. I stick to my basic Pyrex glass one for most measuring, this one gets used for my kid to pour eggs into the mixer.

Ease of Cleaning
To be fair, I'm not sure how any measuring cup could actually be difficult to clean. But being able to stick this one in the dishwasher is nice.

Durability
Again, not really sure how a measuring cup could fail. But it hasn't cracked or lost a handle. The markings are still easy to read.

Design
It delivers liquid at the correct volume. The angle tends to grab stickier stuff (like molasses or marshmallow creme) better than a traditional measuring cup, but basically it does what it's supposed to do.

Handy for measuring liquids

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I have come to trust the OXO brand--I love the thick rubber handles and mostly solid construction of their products. The OXO angled measuring cup set is no exception--it has a great easy-grip handle (though the rubber probably isn't strictly necessary, but it's a perk), a sturdy plastic body, and easy-to-read red measuring lines. These measuring cups are super handy for measuring liquids, especially colored ones. The angled piece on the inside of the cup has additional measurement markings on it, so you can see as you pour how much liquid is in the cup without having to lift the cup to eye-level or crouching down to see the measurement lines on the sides. This is a great feature, and I wish all my liquid measuring cups had something similar. Also, the red ink, while not raised or embossed, seems to be pretty permanent. I have a glass measuring cup, and the red markings on it have faded to the point it's very difficult to read. I don't anticipate having that problem with these cups.

Great measuring cups

By 

from Glen Lyon, PA

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I love this measuting cups.These are convenient and durable. I have used mine for 2+ years, with all liquids including oils, and I wash them in the dishwasher. They are as good as new and the numbers have not worn off yet! My measuring is definitely more precise with these. They nest nicely for storage. These are great measuring cups. They nest nicely when not in use and are easy to read when filling them. I highly recommend them. In fact, they came a lot earlier than I had thought they would. I am hoping through repeated washings the numbers don't rub off which is what happened to my glass measuring cups. I also like the fact they are light weight.

best set out there.

By 

from Winterville, NC

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

This is the best set of measuring cups out there. My favorite feature is that they can all 3 stack/nest in the cabinet or drawer. They are easy to read from overhead rather than having to hold up and read from the side. You can throw them in the dishwasher or microwave with no problem. The non-slip handles are nice as well. I have had these for about 10 years and they are still working great, look almost new! I have now gotten rid of all the old pyrex glass measuring cups that I used to have--these beat them in every category! There's also a smaller cup sold individually for tablespoons and teaspoons and that one is not only cute, but very useful as well!

Oxo measuring cup set is a brilliant idea but hard to clean

By 

from Milford, OH

Comments about OXO Angled Measuring Cup Set:

I love the idea of these measuring cups because I really hate to bend down to look if I measured the right amount of liquid in my measuring cups. This product makes it so I don't have to stoop down. I do find some difficulty cleaning the creases and crevices when the liquid is sticky, like corn syrup. They are dishwasher safe, which is nice.
