Mine are all at least 20 years old. Don't know what I would do without my 4 cup measures! I use them to mix stuff, as well as to store things like sauces in the fridge. None of mine have faded either, and all three go in the dishwasher.

Actually, my 2 cup and 1 cup go back to wedding shower stuff.. That was back in the day when a young bride had never left home, and needed everything to outfit a kitchen. Things like that were really appreciated. Geeze, I even remember who gave them to me, wrapped in two pretty hand embroiderd white flour sack tea towels.
I've never had a 4 cup..I should get one.

Glass liquid measuring cup

I love all three of my 4 cuppers. I have one cover, and it looks like a snaggle toothed rat grazed on it. Otherwise, plastic wrap works just fine.

I love the 4 cup Pyrex too, and use it a lot. It's big enough that I can use the wire whisk in it for salad dressings etc. without splattering, and the pour spout is a plus. Multi-tasker. Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind having an extra as well.

My previous post about how ancient my measuring cups are, reminded me of when my 4 yr old asked if I had ever seen a dinosaur in person.

I've seen plenty of iguanas. Does that count, Kay?

Wow, Kayelle, have you seen one? That would be soooo cool!

Since we're just months apart in age Andy, we used to hide from them, or did you forget?
