OXO Good Grips 3-Piece Angled Measuring Cup Set

Tell me if this sounds familiar: You need to measure out some amount of fluid (water, milk, juice, oil, syrup, vinegar, etc) for a recipe you’re making, so you bring out your trusty glass measuring cup and start filling it, only to discover you’ve overshot the measurement line yet again because of the angle between your eyes and the cup. Annoying.

You can constantly be bending down or lifting the cup to eye level to check your accuracy, but again, why does it have to be such a hassle?

OXO Good Grips’ angled measuring cup set is the better way. The angled surface inside the cups lets you read measurements from above — cups on the left, fluid ounces on the right. (The outside of the cups also have milliliter markings, in case you need them.)

The set includes 1-cup, 2-cup, and 4-cup sizes, the combo of which will run you only $20 on Amazon. Keep in mind that while the cups are dishwasher safe, you should avoid putting them in the microwave or pouring anything too super hot into them.
