This Pyrex measuring pitcher for liquid ingredients is to measuring what the wooden spoon is to stirring: timeless, practical and essential. Made of Corning's thick, oven-proof glass, this archetypal measuring cup is hard to break, easy to clean, and its large, bright blue markings are a cinch to read. Shown here in the 1 pint size it gives a scale with 1/2 and 1/3 cup increments, fluid ounces and a ladder-like display of metric milliliter capacities on the opposite side.

Pros: Durable, dishwasher safe, microwave safe!
If you are constantly replacing measuring cups in your kitchen may I recommend the Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup? It's my favorite measuring cup to use in the kitchen.
Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup
The first thing that caught my eye on this measuring cup was how durable it was. The Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup is made of a thick and durable glass. It is dishwasher safe and also microwave safe.
The Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup holds 2 cups as the title suggests. It has metric markings as well on one side and cup and fl. oz. markings on the other. The print is easy to read in large red or blue print depending on the design you purchased. The handle is easy to grip and very comfortable.
The Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup costs me $4.99 many years ago. I'm sure they haven't gone up too much and well worth the cost! You can also purchase Pyrex Measuring Cups in 1 Cup and 4 Cup sizes. Pyrex products can be purchased in the housewares department in most department stores and mass merchandising stores like Target and Walmart.
Why I Prefer This Measuring Cup
I have to say that this is one strong and durable measuring cup! I have had my Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup for almost 20 years and have managed to keep it in one piece! I have purchased other measuring cups from Tupperware, and other brands but they haven't managed to hang around the kitchen. Something always happens to them whether they are plastic or glass. My Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup has withstood many mishaps in the kitchen and has remained unchipped and unbroken. It is one strong measuring cup!
I like using the two cup measuring cup. So many recipes for a family of over 3 requires more than one cup of ingredients and this one keeps me from having to use two one cup measuring cups. I also like the clear glass cup which allows you to view the ingredients clearly.
Final Thoughts And Recommendation
I highly recommend the Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup. It is made by a dependable company that has been making these measuring cups for many years. They are dependable, durable and will make your life in the kitchen so much easier. I give Pyrex 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cups 5 Stars!
