I put off buying this item for a long time because I was afraid it would become a decoration and nothing else. I'm thrilled to report I actually enjoy using the measuring cups. They make it easier to scoop up ingredients compared to straight-sided measuring cups. The jury is still out on the measuring spoons. While I like the convenience of having them readily available on the counter and I like that they are individually available, I wish the handles were a tad longer. All-in-all I would buy these again.
Worth the investment. I did compare prices and Overstock.com. had the lowest price. Designed to be kept conveniently on the kitchen counter, I enjoy and use it on a daily basis. Would also make a beautiful gift.

I have been eyeing the pewter measuring cups for a couple of years now, ever since I saw them on a popular cooking show. However, it took a while for me to decide to make the purchase because-- let's face it--they're pricey. I am an avid baker and I have to say I am extremely pleased with this purchase. Prior to seeing them on Overstock, I had not seen the combination measuring cups/spoons set. I am really glad I waited because I love this set! I got the bird design, which is adorable and they look great on my counter. I must say they are the perfect combination of form and function--a beautiful and useful piece of art.

I just could not pass this set up as I was looking through housewares (which i do not normally do). The set is beautiful on my counter top. I am getting lots of compliments about the set. I tell everyone where I got them and about the different patterns especially if you opt just for the measuring cups. The set will be a part of my kitchen decor for many years.
