Perfect Compaired to other sets, you get more in this set for the same price or less without giving up quality. Plus, you can’t put stainless sets in the microwave to melt butter.Pros:1. Large set with odd sizes (like 3/4 cup)2. I won’t likely use the really small (like 1/32 tsp) but they can be used as a flour leveler to scrape over the top with the larger cups.3. Sizes are not printed/painted on so they won’t wear off4. Weighted properly so that when I set it down they lay flat. My old set tipped over.5. Nice mix of colors which makes them pretty but also makes it easier to tell close sizes apart.6. The measures are in labled in cups and mL. No conversions.The only thing I don’t care for is that they don’t stack together perfectly. The set is in 3 parts – 1 set of large cups, 1 set of medium cups and then a set of spoons.Each individual set stacks well, but when putting the 3 sets together they don’t nest perfectly. Minor detail, so it’s not worth subtracting a star over IMHO.
Really good for the price List price is currently $9.95, barely 50 cents per piece, and Amazon’s discounts make this set an even better deal. I got it to replace my , which is very solid and has a nice feel but quickly sloughed off its size labels and became discolored. I like this set better.I appreciate its permanent size labels, molded right into the handles. I like its colors. The storage rings are easy to open, though I prefer to keep my scoops separate. I really, really like the huge range of sizes, and on my very first recipe with them (a cheesecake) I used many of the less-common ones (1/8 tsp, 1/2 tbsp, 2 tsp, and 1 1/2 cup) — nice to use one scoop instead of two for such things. However, that recipe calls for 1 1/3 cups of sugar, and there’s no cup that size. Hardly a big deal, but I want 1 1/3 cups at least as often as the included 1 1/2 or 1 3/4 cup sizes.The only other negative is that they’re pretty light, though admittedly I’m used to the hefty Oxo measures. Just scooping white sugar out of the bag made a cup’s handle flex; I’d be careful about scooping anything heavier. They’re light enough, too, that a spoon flew free of the dishwasher’s silverware rack, and would likely have been toast if my model had an exposed heating element. Load your dishwasher with that in mind.It’s nonetheless a pretty terrific set for the price, and I’m glad I got it.
