I like the heavy gauge of stainless these measuring cups are made with. They will last forever! I took the ring off for ease of use as it was a bit cumbersome when using them one at a time...just my personal preference.
The Frieling model is suppose to be the Top of the line and it did not disappoint. I get an easy release point and a more rigid side wall for forming. I also highly recommend the glass bottom if your current pan is leaving your foods with a "metal" like taste (you get none of that with this model). Although you can certainly find a cheaper pan, I do not know if you can get one for better quality.
After using sandra lee's measuring cups, where the measuring prints wear off i am happy to finally find good sturdy cups that work for me in the kitchen. i really like them and intend to order another 2 sets to give as gifts to my girls.
My mom was born in New Orleans so she pretty much raised me on the kitchen counter; needless to say I am always in the kitchen cooking (either for me or guests). This sifter has a superb manufacturing quality. The wooden knob did come off once so far, but was easy to pop back on. The metal work is excellent - from the casing to the wire mesh. I have no hesitation to recommend.
