I have lots of plastic measuring cups I use for baking but they aren't very helpful for pouring or even holding hot liquids. This is the kind of kitchen item you don't really think about until you have a need to use it. This is exactly what you would expect. A solid, sturdy glass measuring cup that holds up to 16 ounces with markings for ounces and millileters. In cooking terms, it will hold up to 2 cups or 500 milleliters. (One cup equals about 236 ml). It's stamped microwave safe and made in the USA.
I love this measuring cup. I use it for a lot of things other than to measure. I use it to heat water for instant oatmeal, cappuccino mix, just about anything to need to use hot water.
Oh, yeah, and it's great for measuring, too. Love, love, love this cup.
I love this measuring cup. Love the clear markings, and that it measures 2 cups. It works wonderfully for packing brown sugar. Pops right out. Recommend!
