This little miracle of a measuring cup has replaced all other measuring units in my kitchen. It has all I can possibly need. First of all, it can be used to measure both solid and liquid stuff. The markings for solid measurements are printed in red, and for liquid ones in blue. I can measure solids in cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, and milliliters - the cup has them all. No more wondering how to convert teaspoons into milliliters or anything like that; whatever units the recipe uses, I can use. The same goes for liquids, they can be measured in cups, fluid ounces, tablespoons, and teaspoons.
The cup itself is a bit unusual. It is 6" tall and designed as two pieces: a hard, clear plastic tube with measurements on it and a softer plastic insert that goes inside. When I need to measure something, I put the insert in and line in up with the needed marking; very easy and convenient. Cleaning the cup is easy as well. The insert is not dishwasher safe, so I wash both pieces by hand. Just a bit of soapy water and a soft sponge is all it takes. I am very pleased with this measuring cup.
