Measuring Cup Sets With 3/4 Cup and 1 3/4 Cup Measuring Cups

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

Just looking for a little bit of feedback on a product I saw in the store the other day. The item[s] in question was a 19 piece measuring set that claims it has "odd size measurements", and one such size was a 3/4 cup measuring cup. I immediately thought that may have their uses to people who don't want to spend time measuring out things, but at the same time I think it might be a little unnecessary.

I just want to know what everyone things about this set. Would there be people that would use them or not use them, and if so, would you think that there is a better skill level / use that they may have?

Thanks for the input!

well, on first thought, I think I like it? But would just be more stuff in tool drawer? I actually think a better idea would be to sell measuring cups and spoons separately, so you could have several one cups, teaspoons, etc. for baking marathons.

Happy Holidays,
Nan

I use my 3/4 cup measure all the time. Many, many things call for 3/4 or 1.5 cups of something, and it's the choice for both of those. I didn't realize it was an odd size. Then again, I don't have a set of measuring cups, just a bunch that I use.

I use my 3/4 measuring cup for breadmaking, when it calls for 3/4 C of flour!

45 years of housekeeping, including 3 years cooking professionally in a restaurant we owned (HubbyDearest's dream--my nightmare), and I managed nicely with just the standard 4-cup set for dry ingredients. 19 measuring cups? Who can keep track :confused:

Sounds like a great idea until I picture myself rummaging through the drawer for the cup that's inevitably in the dishwasher. Sort of reminds me of the ratchet & socket set that is always a mess when you open the case... no thanks. I just bought a scale for baking - I better figure that out first.

I think they would be great to take to the beach, and give the daughter more options when making sand castles.

I use the 3/4 because its the PERFECT size to fit into my sugar, flour, canisters...the 1 cup just makes a mess!

I know I dogged williams sonoma in the other thread, but I inhereted (from my fiance) a set from them, that is just awesome, like the allclad of measuring cups., you can dig in to sugar/flour/anything and no silly bending or anything.

I haven't used them at the beach yet, but I'm sure they would hold up good there too.
