I'm not the greatest cook in the world, so I need all the help I can get to make sure the recipe ingredients are exactly right when I'm cooking or baking. I received the Oxo Good Grips Angled Measuring Cup as a Christmas gift last year and I totally love it. The unique feature of this measuring cup is that it has an angled measuring marker inside the cup that makes it easier to see the measurement.
The cup is made of a clear plastic that is dishwasher safe and holds up to 2 cups. It has a rubber grip handle for a slip proof hold and a pouring spout. The measurements are very easy to read looking down into the cup with the angled measurement marker. There are also additional markings on the side of the cup as on a traditional measuring cup. Inside the cup the measurements are shown in cups, but the outside markings give both cup, ml and oz markings.
I have the 2 cup size, but there is also a 4 cup size or smaller 1 cup and even a 3 piece mini set for measuring smaller ingredients. Although they are dishwasher safe, they are not recommended for the microwave.
