Measuring Cup With Engraved Numbers?

Hey

I have a measuring cup that all the numbers have washed off and now it is not very useful. I am looking to buy a new one (glass) but wondering if any actually have the lines and numbers engraved on the glass instead of painted on it.

I am looking pretty much for this but just not painted numbers and lines

I can't find anything.

I've got a set of older Pyrex measuring cups that still have the original paint on the. You are right, the newer stuff wears off far to easily. Maybe a yard sale for some older cups might be the way to go?

Fire King ones are the worst - both for measurements wearing off and for chipping easily.

I've seen old ones at thrift stores and they practically want brand new prices if they are in good condition. If you are buying new, I'd probably stick with Pyrex even though they aren't as good as in the past.

I've noticed some that have the numbers moulded into the glass itself, such as this old Anchor Hocking.

That said, I have old Pyrex and Anchor Hocking measurers and would never dream of putting them in the dishwasher.

That might be. A lot of people have a problem with the lid though. The thing I don't like about it is that it has no handle what sucks if you are putting something hot in it and then need to pour it into something. Maybe not end of the world but still wish it had a handle.

I also see this on both the one you linked and the one I originally linked:

"This product carries a 5 year exchange warranty redeemable at any Canadian Tire store."

How does that work? Do I got to keep a screenshot of the website picture as not sure if this product/listing will be still around in 5 years.

Don't put them in the dishwasher, it will wear off the numbers on most measuring cups.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Check out Cambro Camwear polycarbonate measuring cups. They are lightweight compared to glass so they are easier to manage/lift/pour when full. They come in sizes from 1 cup to 4 quarts that will take you through any task from baking through mixing cement ;) They have raised measurements on both sides with red lettering, one side metric, one side imperial/US. They are microwavable. I have been using these measuring cups exclusively for the last 25 years.

You do have separate cups for cement and food, right? Winking Face

You only need to measure the water for the cement so, uh, "no."

Cambro practically anything is awesome and I echo the awesomeness of said measuring cups.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.
