I originally started out with the 4 TBSP version of this as a measure that wasn't otherwise commonly available. So, I thought that getting these other three in standard sizes was really just a "splurge" when I had so many other measuring vessels. Wrong! The control over pouring that is achieved by pinching the edge, whether into the stand mixer, carefully into the half-full hot sauté pan, or even into the narrow opening way up there on my bird feeders, is so nice! I use the 4 cup with a potato masher to get the 6 bananas ready to add to my banana bread and, while I am at it, just measure the rest of the liquid ingredients and throw them along in with that waiting to be added to the mixer. I'll use a jug whisk in the 2 cup for the 4 eggs and have them ready to add also. I seem to be coming up with more and more uses. I have bought the set, along with the small 4 TBSP one, as gifts. They can discolor. I made the mistake of "scooping" homemade red sauce, a cup at a time into three separate freezer containers, in an attempt to evenly and accurately apportion the lot. I was able to get the "orange" cup back to looking new by washing it with some Chlorox Cleanup, and, rinsed well, it did not retain any color or bleach odor.
I own the two cup one but am going to get the whole set now. I have had all types of measruing cups but these are the best I have ever used.
I have bought and given several as this is my favorite new kitchen accessory. The silicone construction allows for the cup to be compressed for easy pour and the nesting of the set saves cabinet space. I thew away all of my old measuring cups!
