Im a sucker for novel kitchen gadgets, but far too often thats all they are - novelty - and function goes out the window in favour of style.
These cups though are a class of their own: the finish is a glossy scarlet rather than the raspberry red in the image, and so are bold and bright, and add a splash of vibrant colour wherever they are placed (not, however taking up much shelf footprint!); but more importantly they do exactly what you want them to:
There are three dolls in the nest, with a different measure for each half of each doll.
Each doll fits togehter very snugly but is effortless to detatch and can be done one handed in fact; the base of each cup is flat so wont roll over on the work surface spilling your ingredients, and yes - the measurements are inside the bottom - but I found these a cinch to read as they are very clearly embossed. Maybe it would be clearer for those with weaker eyesight if they were in a different colour, but I wouldnt say it was an issue at all.
Intuitive to use, take up minimal space, and with a simple, elegant design. Its such a clever and cheerful idea that Im surprised there arent more "versions" of these - and although red is perfect for me, Id like to see some more colours available as I would love to gift these to friends - They would make a perfect gift for a housewarming or chef!
