World's Most Expensive Measuring Cups


Let's take a close look at these.

First, what the website has to say:

    Our nesting, 18/8 stainless steel measuring cups are straight-sided, marked on both the handle AND bottom of the cup (so you can tell the 1/4-cup from the 1/3-cup when they're hanging on a pegboard), dishwasher-safe, and feature extra-long handles for better leverage and cleaner measuring.

    Complete cup set includes 1/8-, 1/4-, 1/3-, 1/2-, 2/3-, 3/4-, 1-, 1 1/2-, and 2-cup sizes.


Well, all that's very nice.

But one thing the website doesn't address is something I find critical when it comes to measuring cups, to wit: will the cup stand up when empty or barely filled, or will it tilt?

Because when the smaller sizes have long handles they tend to fall to the side.


The fact that the website does not address this issue by noting that "cups stand and do not tip when empty" or something of that nature, along with the "extra–long handles," makes me fear for the worst and forces me to caution you about this possibility.

I wouldn't be doing my job — for which, let's face it, you pay me an obscene amount of money — if I didn't.

Should you choose to proceed, then, well, you've been warned.

Caviar's empty.

Wait a minute... that's not right.
