My sister purchased these measuring cups for me as a gift when she attended a Pampered Chef party. I was very excited to receive these particular measuring cups. I love to bake and cook so these easy to read measuring cups make measuring things much easier. I no longer have to bend down in order to read the measurements on my measuring cups. I can get an accurate measurement of liquids every single time. I have measured numerous things while using these measuring cups such as: water, almond milk, oil, liquid eggs, applesauce, puree pumpkin and vegetable broth. The measuring cups are light weight because they are made from plastic. They are very durable and easy to clean. The measuring cups are easy to read standard and metric measures. The measuring cups have a easy grip handle and is microwave and dishwasher safe. I use these measuring cups at least 3 times weekly. These are my favorite measuring cups.
