I had been eyeing these measuring cups for a long time, when my husband bought them for me last Christmas. I love them. They are handsome and well-constructed, but their qualities go beyond their solid aesthetic appeal. There are pour spouts on both sides of the cup, and each size has impressed graduated markings inside. This makes it easy to use the 1/2 cup, for instance, to measure out 1/4 cup. Very multi-tasking. They also are marked with metric equivalents.

They are by far the best measuring cups I’ve ever owned.
