When I used to dabble in TPC (thank you Doris Christopher, and I still do to a degree) I bought her adjustable cups and spoon sets . I just love them. Its an all in one contraption that takes the fuss out of measuring for a level amount. I admit, I love a good kitchen gadget now and them, but I do have my mothers old tin measuring cups that look like darling little saucepots, and once they came into my possesion...I threw the 52 yr old metal ring in the trash, thank you very muck...(sorry mom)

No rings on anything not even in DH nose. I have found that I do like The Pampered Chef measuring spoons. They are really neat. Not much chance of losing them

Just what you guessed. The Pampered Chef. Old habits diehard. We consultants used to use alot of abbreviations in our selling points and such...

Didn't TPC sold adjustable measuring cups. Would like to try them. But where do I go?

I have 2 sets of spoons in the Lab, Plastic and SS, the plastic are imperial and the SS are in Metric.
they`re both held together with a Chain, the sort of chain you get on sink plugs like 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-
I keep them on the chain, that way I`m less likely to lose one :)

goodgiver, you'll need to find a consultant, host a party and then get them. You can look on their official website to find someone in your area.

I know that a brand called NorPro has a set that comes in blue or orange but you'll need to hit your local specialty shop (or sometimes Ross or TJ Maxx has them).

Forgive my spelling, but isn't that what a biday (beday, bidae?) is for?

Back to the original topic. I voted for save all rings. But, that's mainly because I find a lot of rings, some of them good ones. But, that's a different topic as well. I do leave my nice SS measuring spoons on their ring all the time. When it's time to wash, into the dishwasher they go. My measuring cups are plastic, and have a ring that's cut. I can easily remove/add the cups back to the set as needed. However, when we moved from MI down to OK, I lost the 1/4 c measuring cup. I might have to break down and buy another set.

I'm in the remove the ring and toss it. I don't like washing enough to wash four when I can just wash one. Since hubby was diagnosed with diabetes, we use those measuring cups a lot.
