These Measuring Cups can go from freezer; to refrigerator; to microwave, gas range or oven; to dishwasher without missing a beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great measuring cups I absolutely LOVE these! So CUTE and practical! Actually many of our first time measuring liquids is in science class. Kind of brings back memories of teamwork and discovery! Just brings some fun to the daily process!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for blended drinks & now thicker glass I use these with a stick blender to make protein drinks every morning. They're much better than the plastic beaker that came with the blender, which I realized was starting to disintegrate into my drinks. I've never had an issue with the markings wearing off, although I hand wash it most of the time. The main challenge has been breakage. Initially, the glass was rather thin, so I'm on probably my fifth one over six years. The last one made it two and a half years but broke when I bumped it against the sink. I replaced it the same day so I wouldn't have to revert to the plastic beaker. The new one (purchased 2/9/18) is thicker glass than before. It feels different to drink out of, but not necessarily heavier, which is interesting. I'm sure I'll get used to it. I am hopeful this one will last even longer than its predecessors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Wonderful for boiling water in microwave for tea. The pour spout works much better than the Pyrex pour spout. So far I am hand washing it so I can't comment on how the markings last in the dishwasher. Very happy to find this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glass measurig cup I agree with other reviewers that this is a great product. We use it for heating water in the microwave. The pour spout is excellent - no spills. It looks fragile but probably is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great measuring cup! I got this measuring cup to replace an old one that had worn off its markings. I love the cylindrical shape, which makes it much easier to fit into the top rack of dishwasher. The white markings are very easy to see. All in all a great buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Measuring Jug Ever! Love these, not only are they super stylish but they help with everything from measuring when I bake a cake, to making mac n cheese in the microwave for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect beaker Just what I was looking heat liquids in the microwave and be able to pour them out without making a mess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unexpected find I drink coffee every morning in a 32 oz. glass measuring cup. Have been looking for another for over a year with no luck. Was at the Container Stpre website for something else and thought I'd give it a shot. There one was; I rodered it, it came - very well wrapped, and I am delighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functionally Perfect, Visually Pretty I have to heat water several times a day in the microwave so that I can quickly warm syringes of food for my kitty. I bought this glass measuring cup because I did not want to expose my cat to the carcinogens of a microwaved plastic cup. I liked this measuring cup best because it is tall and narrow, instead of wide-mouthed, and the glass is sturdy borosilicate. I found it to be wonderfully lightweight, easy to store & clean, and holds up to the many uses a day it receives. The handle proved to be an unexpected plus - it is the perfect shape for a hand, unlike other measuring cups I've used, and is more secure to clean without dropping. When I saw how perfectly the spout poured, and how easy to read the measuring increments were, I decided to replace my other glass measuring cups with a set of these!

A couple of Sundays ago - the night before back-to-school for my kids - I was checking things off like so many moms were doing that very night. Did the kids have all the school supplies they needed? Class schedules as planned? Would my daughter, starting middle school, find her way ok - avoiding mean girls and outfit angst? Could I possibly get everyone - all six of us - together around the table for dinner - at least for that first day of school - to recap over a home cooked meal? That, frankly, was the kicker. So I did a bit of scratch paper meal planning for the week. The list wasn't pretty or the menu that inventive, but mission was accomplished. Dinner got on the table. Kids noticed (no Hot Pockets or chicken nuggets out of the freezer!) and expressed their appreciation. Mom. Felt. Great. Now, how many more weeks left in the school year?
