Borosilicate Glass Measuring Cups
Would not buy again
I bought these a few months ago and the lettering is already wearing off. Even though they are thin, so far they seem durable except for the lettering. And what good are they without that?? Too much money for what you get!!

I wish I could say that I am a fantastic cook and canned soup would never pass between my lips, but alas, that's not going to happen. A can of Campbell's soup will, very often, be the main part of my lunch during the winter. It has always bugged me that a 2 cup measure was not big enough to handle the can of soup and then a can of water which means getting out a bigger pan to heat it in. I had a big 4 cup measuring cup to do the job but it took up a big amount of storage space with it's spread out top. This straight up and down design makes storage in smaller spaces much easier. This would have gotten 5 stars if it came with a fitted lid so I could easily pour my bowl of soup, put a lid on what was left and store it in the refrigerator to be pulled out the following day and rewarmed for a second lunch.

Just what I was looking for!
I used to work in a lab, and have been looking for something like this to use at home for years! I bought both sizes, and use them for making tea as well as for measuring ingredients for cooking. They are very lightweight and the markings are easy to read. The spouts do not drip. The wide handles are comfortable to grip, so there is no accidental bumping of knuckles against a hot surface, as sometimes happens with typical measuring cups or mugs.

It's Clear as Glass
I have been using Catamount Flameware for close to 20 years. It is not break-proof, hence my recent order, but it is tough -- made of Borosilicate glass. I use it for measuring wet and dry ingredients, and I can even cook in it on lower temperatures. It's great for melting butter or chocolate in the microwave or on the stove top. I use the larger size when I strain hot soups and sauces -- the borosilicate can take the hot temperatures -- and, the shape makes getting the fat off easy. Afterwards, it can go from the heat into the fridge with no problems. Plus, they look great.
It's clear, these are not your average measuring cups.
