The Best Dry Measuring Cups

A trusty collection of measuring cups is a must-have for any home cook. Consider any from the following Clean Eating-approved list of dry measuring cups to add an element of precision to your kitchen. Some things to consider when buying measuring cups is their sturdiness and quality of build, the number of pieces in a matching set, and how conveniently they are packaged together, such as nesting or being linked together with a clasp.

Best No-Frills Standard Set

New Star Foodservice 42917 Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons and Measuring Cups Combo, Set of 8

Handy and Compact

Made from steel and designed to nest perfectly into each other, this 8-piece set of measuring spoons with matching cups is built to last and will save space in your kitchen. The spoons in this set are engraved with measurements in both milliliters and teaspoon and tablespoon amounts.

What We Liked

One of the biggest nuisances about full sets of matching kitchen tools is losing a single piece and ending up with an incomplete set. What we like about this set in particular is that it makes losing its pieces quite difficult: both the set of four cups and the set of four spoons not only nest inside one another neatly, but also come attached with a removable steel loop.

Additionally, the manufacturers took the additional measure to deburr the cups’ edges, so you don’t accidentally cut your hands while washing them. Available on Amazon.
