This is one of those kitchen tools I would NEVER be without!  I call the Pampered Chef Liquid/Dry Measuring Cup my 'Wonder Cup'.  It is perfect for those messy measuring things like shortening and corn syrup.  Anyone who bakes on a regular basis will understand exactly what I mean.  It measures with incredible precision and gets practically every drop out of the cup.  All you do is slide the two pieces to the measurement you need, and it is clearly marked on the side so that part is really easy.  Then you set the cup on the work surface and fill it with your product.  Pick it up and slide the 'plunger' type apparatus so the product slides into your mixing bowl.  All I ever do for cleanup is separate the two pieces, rinse it under hot water and throw it into the dishwasher on the top rack.  I have had mine for probably two decades and it works as well now as it did the first time I used it.  The measurement hash marks are just now beginning to fade from at least weekly use for about 20 years, so I'd say it stands the test of time extremely well.

We were given a Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup as a gift, and we've found it has its pros and cons. We use ours mainly to measure thin liquids (milk, water, juice, etc.) and dry goods (flour, sugar, etc.). Unfortunately, because it's so hard to clean, we hesitate to use it with pastes and viscous liquids (peanut butter, honey, etc.), which are exactly the things we were most hoping it would measure neatly. We still use it, but not as much as we had hoped we would.

Ease of Cleaning
Our biggest annoyance with our Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup is that it is not dishwasher-safe. It can be a bit difficult to hand-wash, because the plunger fits quite tightly into the cup, so disassembling it can be tough. When it's not dirty enough to be worth taking it apart, we use a small bottle-brush and plenty of hot water, and that usually does the trick.

Durability
We were afraid that our Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup would start to leak, but it still fits together as snugly as ever. We haven't had any cracks, plunger failures or other durability issues either.

Design
The measuring marks are easy to read, and the pour spout is great. The plunger can be a bit stiff and hard to use, especially with sticky ingredients like peanut butter, but eventually we've gotten better at managing that. Mostly, we wish it were easier to clean.

Not a great investment!

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

I purchased the Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup after seeing a demonstration at a local Pampered Chef party. I was very impressed by how easy it was to use, and it appeared to be very accurate when measuring the ingredients. I like that this measuring cup can be used to measure both wet ingredients and dry ingredients. It is versatile which is a key feature for any kitchen gadgets. This measuring cup performed very well the first couple of times I used it. It was accurate, the inner plastic portion moved easily, and my baked goods came out perfectly. Eventually, the inner plastic portion started to accumulate a residue and did not move easily at all. I tried hand washing this measuring cup and the residue remained. I eventually ran it through my dishwasher. While the plastic did not warp, the resident remained and the inner portion of the measuring cup was even more difficult to move. Overall, I do not recommend purchasing this product. It is great for the first few uses but quickly becomes useless once the residue accumulates.

Not the easiest to use

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

I pretty much like all products from Pampered Chef, but the Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup did not work as well as I wanted it to. Basically, you move the plastic measuring portion of the measuring cup to the measurement the recipe calls for. Then, you can push the bottom of the measuring cup into the outer portion, and the food is supposed to go into your mixing bowl easily. I think my problem might be that I used this with Peanut Butter, which was not the easiest thing to get out of the measuring cup.

I also didn't put this in the dish washer, so it was not the easiest thing to wash.

Ease of Cleaning
This was not very easy to clean since I was nervous to put it in the dishwasher because I thought it might melt.

Durability
I think this would be pretty durable since the plastic is heavy duty. I haven't used this enough to say if it would stand up when you use it very often.

Design
The design of this is a good idea, but it is hard to use with materials like honey or peanut butter.

The pampered chef mini measure all cup is a great invention. This cup allows you to combine both dry and liquid ingredients in one measuring cup. the cup is opaque so you can clearly see the lines at any point. this cup is very convenient when baking, as you can combine your liquids and solids in one measure all cup. I love using this cup to assist with my baking needs. It saves on time and dishes. i also allow that it suctions on to counter tops allowing for additional support and stability when combining and measuring ingredients.

Ease of Cleaning

Even though it is made of plastic, the measure all cup is very durable. It can hold a variety of ingredients at once. It is able to hold heavier items like nuts or hot liquids. It is very versatile.

this product is well designed; the measurements are easy to read and clearly labeled. This product is enjoyable to use.

Limited use

By 

from Lake Mills, WI

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

Typically, I love Pampered Chef products. This measuring cup is not my "go to" measuring cup. The inner sleeve is often tight and difficult to pull out of the outer channel. Certain materials will get caught between the cup part and the clear measuring sleeve. Then, when you want to pull it apart, it is quite difficult and can even score the inner plastic part. The one thing that this measuring cup is very good for is for measuring greasy solids such as peanut butter and shortening. It is very easy to release the greasy ingredients without having to scrape. It is also fine for measuring liquids, but because it is in two pieces, there is more to wash at clean-up time. For this reason, I will keep it in my cabinet for those times that I am baking with shortening or peanut butter, but will use other options for general cooking tasks.

Ease of Cleaning
Two pieces create the need to wash two dishes instead of one.

Durability
Good, but inner part does get scratched when solids slip between parts.

One of the first things I ever bought from Pampered Chef

By 

from Mount Airy, MD

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

I love, love, love this measuring cup. There is absolutely no better way to measure shortening, peanut butter, syrup, or anything else that is gooey or messy. By the nature of the way that the food is pushed out, it scrapes itself relatively clean. I have worn one out in about 10 years and purchased this newer version to replace it. I enjoy being able to use it for both solid and liquid measurements. And I love that it can be washed in the dishwasher.

Ease of Cleaning
Most of the food comes out when the plunger is pushed, scraping the sides. The rest is easily removed in the dishwasher.

Durability
My first mini measuring cup lasted 10 years. Finally, after all that time, the measurements began wearing off on the sides and the edge of the hard plastic sleeve started to crack. It never broke, in fact I still have it. But, it is getting hard to read the measurement markings.

Design
I love it. This is so much easier than the water displacement method that my mother taught me for measuring shortening.

The Reason I fell in love with Pampered Chef

By 

from Shawnee, OK

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

Disclaimer: I sell Pampered Chef because I love it, rather than the other way around.

This is the product that started it all. I had heard of the name Pampered Chef before, but until I saw my mother-in-law using her Measure-All to measure peanut butter for a delicious cookie, I didn't know what I was missing. In that one moment, my life was changed. I had to have the Measure-All. I hosted my first catalog show just for this measuring cup and the rest is history.

This cup is so titled the Measure-All because it does, indeed, measure everything. The blue side is used for measuring liquids and the red is for solids. What makes this measuring cup so stellar is the push-motion. You slide the inner cup down until the top is at the red measurement you desire. Then you fill with your desired ingredient. This is my favorite (also, ONLY) cup for measuring shortening, peanut butter, mayonnaise or anything else sticky and annoying. When you have filled the cup, you push the inner tube back in, shoving your ingredient out, clearing out the sides as it goes. That's it. One quick motion. No filling a measuring cup and then digging the peanut butter back out.

It is wonderful. I have two and at times they're both dirty - I use them that often.

This is one product I believe everyone needs in their kitchen!

Ease of Cleaning
The Measure-All can be separated to go in the dishwasher. However, the top of the inner tube almost needs to be cleaned (or rinsed very well) by hand because the dishwasher spray doesn't reach this part.

Durability
The inner tube has some (very slight) discoloration from the dishwasher, but otherwise it is very quality.

I love the multi purpose cup from Pampered Chef

By 

from Lewisville, AR

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

I love my measure all cup from Pampered Chef. It makes cooking and clean up so much easier. I love to use it at Christmas when making multiple batches of peanut butter fudge. It's push out from the bottom makes it easy to get ALL of the peanut butter in with out a fuss. I use it almost everyday for everything from oatmeal to cooking veggies for dinner. You will love this product. And, NO I am not a Pampered Chef salesperson.

Wow! This is so versatile! I can use it for everything!

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

This is the best measuring cup I have found!  The only drawback is that the it is hard to clean the bottom of the liquid cup (especially if milk has dried in it).  It is dishwasher safe.  This is a great product for those who measure peanut butter, butter or shortening - it's quick, clean, and accurate!

Hate the measuring cup

By 

from Bridgeport, WV

Comments about Pampered Chef Mini Measure-All Cup:

With Pampered Chef, I find I either generally love a product or hate it. This is a poor product. We received this item as a wedding gift, and I have to say, it went to Goodwill. The measuring cup is just poorly made. The plastic does not slide smootly, and it's not as simple to use as something like an anchor glass measuring cup. Another dislike is the fact it is harder to clean. I really do not see any pros to this item, unfortunately. My husband seems to like the product more than I do, but he does not do much cooking or baking, so I think I have more experience to say whether it is a good product or not. Therefore, I do not think there really is a pro, and the cons would be poor quality and too much work to clean.
