Precision and perfection in the kitchen starts with the right equipment. In order to nail the recipe on the first try, (I mean, who has the time to make something more than once?) you’ll need proper measuring instruments and a liquid measuring cup is a must. Coupled with dry measuring cups and spoons, a liquid measuring cup makes it easy to measure ingredients, especially liquid ones (obviously). Mixing up batters for cakes or homemade waffles is made simple when you can see how much you’re actually distributing. If you don’t want to seem like a novice in the kitchen, even if you are one, you should check out any of these five liquid measuring cups before you start mixing.

Pyrex is known for intricate but sturdy glasswork and its three pack measuring cup set holds up to that tradition. You’ll get three cups that’ll give you a ton of measuring capacity, as they hold one cup, two cups, four cups respectively. These are made with nonporous glass that won’t absorb odors, stain or warp. It is preheated glass, so it works fine in the microwave, oven or freezer and it can be washed in the dishwasher. One side of the cup has milliliter measurements and the other has cups and ounces, so you’re covered with anything a recipe will call for. They can also be stacked inside each other to make storing them simple.
