[Amazon.ca] iSi Silicone Measuring Cups $21.64

These seem to be high quality cups. I haven't tried them personally, but I just bought them. Good reviews.

I always spill from my glass pyrex when it's almost full. These are squeezable, so they should be much easier to pour from.

They're $35 US on amazon.com

They look pretty good but I hate cleaning plastic containers.

Not sure I see any real benefits of having my measuring cups in silicone.

The main benefit, for the kitchen at least, is that it's squeezable.

These are also great for crafts, like mixing epoxy, glues, etc., because they don't stick to silicone and it's an easy peel to clean up.

Thanks OP!

Squeezable sounds like a great way to get an inaccurate measurement, depending on how much they bulge or not.

Squeezable when you squeeze them, not when they're not being squeezed.

I was just looking at this. There was a Youtube video of America's Test Kitchen ppl who picked their favorite kitchen items and one guy said these ISI Silicone measuring cups. You measure in them. Squeeze to create a pourable spout. It can also take heat and be microwaved. Bonus it doesn't feel hot. You can replace your glass measuring cups and save space since they nestle into each other.

3Camels says low price.

They don’t have handles so will be tricky with hot liquid.

One of the reviews said that these don't work that well with epoxy... and were questioning the material was actually silicone....

I think the main purpose of these is for food, I bet there are better materials for mixing epoxy...

Silicone is an insulator. I would assume they won't burn your hand. I guess we'll find out.

Interesting product. I would probably try if it were a bit cheaper. I would be worried of the markings coming off after repeated trips to the dishwasher.

Apparently it's more rigid than you might think at the lower end of the cups, while at the same time squishable into a pourable spout. If you see the reviews a lot of ppl have similar "concerns" when they buy it but they realize it's ok.

Gotta spend another $14 to get free shipping.

Found the Escali Primo digital scale on sale...according to 3Camel, this is all time low price at $29.59

The markings are inside the silicone. They won't come off.

They do exactly what they set out to do with being squeezeable.

Just remember not to try to carry a full one by squeezing it between your body and your arm like you would any other rigid container. It does not end well.
