for March 2023

If you've ever been frustrated by measuring liquids with a metal measuring cup, then glass measuring cups are your new best friends. Glass measuring cups are more sanitary than metal, which can make measuring messy liquids, like sauces and broth, easier. Plus, glass is easier to wipe out, and is less likely to break, than metal.

In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we test glass measuring cups for accuracy, ease of use and clean up. We test accuracy by weighing the cups, checking to see if they hold the proper amount, and measuring liquids in the cups. We also test ease of use, evaluating how easy it is to fill the cups with water, pour liquids into the cups, and clean up the cups after use.

Our top picks for best glass measuring cups include measuring cups made of tempered glass, which are less likely to break, and measuring cups made of stainless steel, which hold liquids well. Here are the best glass measuring cups of 2022:

Glass is preheated oven, microwave, fridge, freezer & dishwasher safe

Pyrex Prepware 1-Cup Glass Measuring Cup is an attractive, simple, and useful kitchen tool. The cup is nonporous, so it won't absorb odors, stains, or chemicals, and it's also less likely to warp or crack. It has a wide base, which makes it easy to pour liquids from, and its handle is turned 90 degrees, so it won't roll away. The cup's handle is molded to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, and it's also the top lip of the cup, so it won't slide off if it's set down. The cup's measurements are etched into the glass, so you can't read them from the outside, but that's a minor inconvenience. The cup measures about 4 inches tall and 3.5 inches in diameter, so it's a little smaller than many of the 4-cup size measuring cups we tested. Still, it was enough for most of our 1-cup recipes, and it's more accurate, given its larger capacity. The cup's measurements are also more precise than with other measuring cups, because the markings are etched into the glass, rather than printed on. The etched markings are easy to read, and they're not easily scratched off. This glass cup is dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended, since dishwashing detergents can scratch the markings off. The Pyrex Prepware 1-Cup Glass Measuring Cup is durable, attractive, and easy to use. It's an outstanding choice for a 1-cup measuring cup.

Easy to read measurements

This cup from Anchor Hocking is sturdy, comfortable to hold, and easy to read. The handle is comfortable and stays in place as you pour. The cap has a nice rubber gasket to keep it sealed. The cup is dishwasher-safe, but we recommend hand washing because it will stain other cups. This cup was surprisingly accurate in terms of its measurements. It measured 2 cups exactly, and we measured it against 2 cups from our previous top pick, the Libbey 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup (Anc-9380), and the results were identical. The downside of the Anchor Hocking cup is that it's smaller than our previous top pick, so you won't necessarily get as much liquid in the glass. This cup is also much heavier, as it's made of glass.

The plastic bottom is sturdy and won't scratch your countertop, and it's microwave-safe, so you can put your measuring cup in your dishwasher. The measuring cup is small enough to fit comfortably in your hand, and it also has a loop so you can hang it from a cabinet or wall. This measuring cup is a good choice for anyone who wants a measuring cup they can leave on their countertop, and it's a good choice for anyone who wants a measuring cup that's easy to clean and fits a variety of cups.

DOUBLE VALUE Each measuring pitcher features ounce and cup measurements on one side and a metric scale in milliliters on the opposite side, for easy conversion. Use both measure cups to follow a recipe easily, or switch it up and use for crafting, as a laundry measuring cup, or professional use.

The Mueller International Clear Measuring Cup Set is sturdy, comfortable to hold, and easy to read. The sturdy handles are curved to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, and the cups measure both liquid and dry ingredients. The clear design lets you quickly view and adjust your ingredients, and with spill-proof spouts and lids, you don't have to worry about a mess. The cups also nest, so they're easy to store when they're not in use. The cups are dishwasher safe, but hand washing is easiest for cleanup. The only complaint we have is that some of the markings are faint, so you'll need to put your eye right up to read them or squint. The cups are German made, and while they're a bit heavier than some other measuring cups, they're made of the same high-quality material as higher-priced sets, so they should provide years of use.

DURABLE AND VERSATILE USE: These measuring cups melt, mix, and reheat. Imperial and metric units sit side by side on sturdy, solid glass that ensure you can whisk, beat, and pour in the same place you measure

The Anchor Hocking Measuring Cup Set has one of the smallest footprints of any glass measuring cup set we tested, making it ideal for space-constrained kitchens. The glass is nonporous, so it won't scratch or absorb flavors, and it's chip resistant, so it won't shatter if dropped. The cups are microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe, and the glass is lead-free, BPA-free, and Safe Design certified. The glass is thick, so your ingredients don't slop around, and the handles are long so they're easy to grasp. The cups are crystal clear, so they're easy to identify and read, and the pre-measured markings make pouring easy. Overall, these cups are easy to use, clean, and store. They're also dishwasher safe, but we found that it's best to wash by hand. The handles are slightly curved, which can lead to clogs, and the cups are difficult to drain. The set contains three cups, so for a large kitchen, you might want something with more cups.
