A set of measuring cups is a must-have for every kitchen. Whether you're baking cookies, making a pot of soup, or simply melting butter for popcorn, these tools provide accurate measurements for tastier dishes. The problem with common glass measuring cups is that they're not flexible, or drip-free, and they tend to get hot to the touch when you take them out of the microwave. So, if you'd like a set of measuring cups that adjust to your needs, the Oxo Good Grips Three-Piece Silicone Measuring Cup Set is the perfect solution.
Oxo has a reputation for its handy kitchen gadgets with non-slip grip, and this set of measuring cups is no different. It has a near-perfect rating from over 8,300 Amazon shoppers because it's easy to use and clean, plus it offers drip-free pouring with a flexible design. They're also stackable for easy storage.
The silicone measuring cups have a honeycomb pattern that's easy to grip, and the surface won't get hot to the touch after a stint in the microwave. The set comes with three sizes— 2-cups, 1-cup, and ½-cup—each painted with easy-to-read measurements in cups, ounces, and milliliters. Use the dishwasher-safe cups for melting butter, whisking salad dressing, or simply measuring wet ingredients for cooking and baking. You can also squeeze the cups to create a spill-free spout—just be sure to measure the contents on a flat surface for accurate readings.

Amazon shoppers applaud this measuring set because the cups are sturdy, easy to use, easy to store, and most importantly, they provide accurate measurements. Several shoppers said that they're replacing their glass Pyrex measuring cups after getting this set. Another shopper said, "It is so nice to have a measuring cup you can melt butter in then pour it into the dish without making a mess!"
"I must say this silicone cup is the best measuring cup I ever had," one shopper said. "Forget the Pyrex glass ones. They either get chipped or the numbers come off after a rough wash. This little guy is so handy. Not clunky, unbreakable, and the honeycomb texture gives a really good grip. I love the fact I can still use it in the microwave and I can squeeze it to pour liquid into bottles without a funnel."
