The Sweethome: The Best Measuring Cups

***06-measuring-cup-2015-test-group-630After putting in more than 30 hours of research and testing, speaking with four expert bakers, and trying 33 models over the past two years, we confidently recommend KitchenMade’s Stainless Steel Measuring Cups for dry ingredients and Pyrex’s 2-Cup Measuring Cup for liquids. They’re more durable than other cups, easier to clean, and the most compact to store of those we tried. They’re also quite accurate (as far as cups go).

Of course, if you’re a diehard baker or food scientist you already know that using a scale is a far more accurate measuring method. With apologies to Fannie Farmer, we should be driving the last nail into the coffin of the dry measuring cup; volume-measuring dry ingredients is inaccurate and faux scientific. But until we can persuade American recipe writers to abandon the archaic, imprecise convention of the cup, these picks will do.
