To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Exactly what I expected, and delivery was quick. They have a very noticeable line from the mold. Which does not scream quality. Looking back, the novelty is the only reason you would pay for this. I doubt they will last a long time.
Bought the white set - I like them a lot. Both ornamental and practical. So much, in fact, I wanted to buy the red set as well. Thought they would be even nicer looking, but they are more than double the price of the white ones. So just on my wish list for now! I bought the white set because I realised I am using a small American cup size scoop to measure out my cat’s biscuits. Wanted a spare, as I would be lost if I lost the original. But these will also be invaluable for American recicipes, and may well be useful also for making my porridge as I find it hard to use the paper packet that comes with individual porridge portions for measuring. As mentioned in another review, I have to squint a bit to read the numbers inside each babushka half, as white numbers on white. Doesn’t matter too much for me. Can try a sharpie marker on the outsides, to see if that stays on when they are washed. But for this reason, and because not dishwasher proof have marked down just one star. Some reviewers have marked down because they are not suitable for transporting food/ liquid. They are not intended for that purpose! Why would anyone think they were? They are measuring cups for recipes, and look very suitable for their intended purpose. Easier to keep together than a set on a ring. But more suitable to be kept on shelf or work surface in kitchen rather than ina drawer. Still tempted to “splash out” and treat myself to a red set! My cat doesn’t care what colour measure I use for her bics. She can easily over-eat and get unhealthily plump, so a measure is essential - she has a small amount. 😻
I love these, they look great, if they were dishwasher safe would rate 5* hate washing things by hand... That's why I have a dishwasher. Because of this they don't get the use they deserve and I regularly use my metal measuring cups, shame. They do look great on the counter though!
I've had a set of these for about 4-5 years, only difference being mine are red. I use them on a daily basis and love them. I have dropped them on the floor several times but haven't had any breakages so far. Various people left bad reviews saying they are not air or water tight, these are not storage containers but measuring cups and as such work very well!
