Positive: These All-Clad measuring cups are well-made that it’s sure to last a lifetime.
Negative: Its extravagant price.
The Verdict: Every dollar spent on All-Clad 5 Piece Stainless Steel Measuring Cups is worth it.
My superb experience with All-Clad measuring cups started when I luckily won it from cooking.com about 2 years ago. It was a first for me to have luxurious measuring cups because I usually choose to purchase cheaper plastic measuring cups priced at $5.00. I was very enthralled with its gorgeous style. It comes is various sizes: ¼ cup, ½ cup, 2/3 cup and 1 cup with notable markings indicated on the handle making it very easy to read. These cups are all made of stainless steel making it heavier compared to the plastic cups. And unlike the plastic cups, the stainless steel cups are way more durable making it last for a lifetime.
I only use the one cup measuring cup exclusively to measure one cup but if you prefer to use the same cup to measure other measurements you can also do so because it is also precisely marked with ¼, ½ and ¾ on its interior.
Cleaning the All-Clad measuring cups would be hassle-free because it is dishwasher-safe. It is so easy to clean and it retains its shiny and lustrous look very well. My measuring cups are already 2 years old but when you look at them you might think of it as brand new. The customers need not to worry if it has defects on it because it also has a one year warranty which the clienteles can enjoy.
I used to have problems when I measure something with my plastic measuring cups they tend to bend on the handle because of the weight. I believe I am not the only one who has experienced this but when I started using All-Clad measuring cups I no longer have to go through the same experience. Its handles, like the whole unit, is made of stainless steel and are very sturdy and solid that it will never have the tendency to bend. The hole on the end of the handles, which vary in its sizes, makes it possible for these measuring cups to be hanged on the wall. By hanging it you are adding a more sophisticated look to your kitchen but personally I prefer to mine in the cupboard. Its handles which are securely attached are very easy to grip and hold.
In this All-Clad Review, we will also discuss the downside of this line. What concerns me is its rather extravagant price. All-Clad measuring cups is set to be sold at $50. I believe I’m talking on behalf of the most middle-class customers that it is really pricey. Yes, I enjoy my All-Clad measuring cups but if I would be willing to pay that much, well I’m not so sure about it. Also, these measuring cups could also be used over dry measurements. Other measuring cups should be purchased if you would like to measure liquids. Because it fits snuggly, you can stack the measuring cups but there will be a minor inconvenience of getting it apart, you can just waggle it. Having a 2/3 cup measurement works perfectly for me as some sets don’t have this measurement.
These measuring cups are perfect as wedding presents or you could give them to someone special who would really be delighted in receiving one. You could conveniently purchase it online or from specialty stores. I love my All-Clad Five Piece Measuring Cups that I use them until now. I was so glad that I won them because I wouldn’t have afforded to buy it.
But if asked if it’s worth the price, well I could say it truly is. Ever since I used these measuring cups I finally found what I was looking for in measuring cups, durability plus elegance. During All-Clad sale I check if they have this set on sale because I really think spending $50 is expensive. But considering it will last for a lifetime it is already practical and reasonable compared to buying those plastic measuring cups which you need to replace from time to time. If you buy this set you don’t need to purchase another. For an ultimate cooking experience, try
