Q: I'm looking for a set of liquid/wet measuring cups. Emphasis on the plural. The kind that are individual cups/scoops for wet ingredients, where the measurement line is below the rim of the cup, as opposed to the large pitchers that measure any where from 1/8 to 5 cups all in one container.
The closest I've found are the Nigella Lawson Living Kitchen Measuring Cups. They fit all my criteria: Separate cups, microwaveable, dishwasher safe. The only problem with them is that she only has the four sizes! What if I need to measure odd sizes?

Editor: Michelle, we confess that we are a little confused as to why you would need separate cups for liquids. Do you feel like the larger jugs aren't as precise? Or do you have trouble getting really clear readings?
If any of the above are accurate, one thought for you is this set from OXO, which lets you read the amounts from above. They're well-designed!

Also, you can move to a system of weighing your liquids instead of measuring them by volume, if you want really precise results.
Readers, any suggestions for Michelle?
