You cannot even begin to compare other measuring cups and spoons to Tupperware! Let me start with the cups. The cups come in hard to find sizes like 2/3 cup. Most sets of measuring cups do not come with those. They are built tough and they all stack into one another to save space. I have heated them, dropped them, put them in the dishwasher, and they are still going strong. Now for the spoons. The spoons are designed so that when you sit them down on the countertop, they stay level and will not spill what is measured out. Most measuring spoons on the market do not sit level when you put them down. These do and it saves a lot of time and mess. These have also survived the dishwasher just as the cups have. I cannot tell you how wonderful these measuring spoons are. I wouldn't have another brand. This would be a fantastic gift for a wedding shower or for someone getting their first home. They will last for a very long time and save a lot of time and mess in the process. Design Tupperware knew what they were doing when they designed the spoons!
