A liquid measuring cup (a short-handled multi-volume graduated glass/pyrex/thin plastic device) is best for liquids. That is because measurement accuracy is achieved by using the transparency of the sidewall to ensure the measuring line of choice (volumetric quantity desired), lines up exactly with the bottom of liquid’s meniscus, especially when placed on a flat level surface. The metal or glass measuring cups used in cooking for dry goods (like flour & sugar) that are marked to indicate a cup, or fractions thereof, actually measure volume, not weight, and are based on eight fluid ounces, not eight dry ounces (aka half a pound.)

Best Glass Measuring Cups In 2020

  1. Pyrex Glass Measuring Cup

Accuracy is critical when it comes to baking. So I use my trusty Pyrex glass measuring cups for liquids (I have two each of 1-cup and 2-cup) and a few sets of dry measuring cups (1/4 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 3/4 cup, and 1 cup), plus a few sets of measuring spoons (1/8 teaspoon, 1/4 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, one teaspoon, one tablespoon). These are sturdy and durable. Also, they do not absorb odors or stains since they are nonporous. They are dishwasher safe and straightforward to wash.

2. Oxo Angled Measuring Cup Set of 2

The unique patented design makes it possible for you to measure out the exact amount of liquid without bending the cups. Also, the handle design provides you with an excellent grip. The body features measurements in both ounces and milliliters. The oval design is such that you can read the measure just by looking at it. The handle has a no-slip design as well, and the product is BPA free and safe from health hazards. However, it is too lightweight and may be hard to handle.

3. Vremi Plastic Measuring Cups Set (3 Pieces)

Vremi measuring cup set has three cups, which are extremely heavy and high for measuring all types of liquid. The silicone handle makes sure that there are zero chances of slip. The plastic used is BPA free and has no health hazards. This product works best in a commercial set up. However, it is not dishwasher safe.

The Different Types

The metal measuring cups are mainly for dry ingredients. Glass measuring cups area intended for liquids. But if you are measuring liquids and don’t have a glass measuring cup handy, can you use your metal ones. Yes, you absolutely can.

If anyone doubts this, fill a one-cup metal measure right to the top. Pour it into a glass measuring cup and note the level. It would be the same unless you spilled some of the liquid. The metal cups are convenient for solids because you can use something straight to scrape across the top to get a full but not overfull measurement. The glass cups are transparent, so you can look through the wall to see where the liquid falls versus the measurement markings. But if you use metal cups for liquid the measure will be the same, just harder to read as you have to look down into the cup to see the level, or you have to be careful not to spill when you measure a full cup.
