Do you remember these?



I'll bet alot of you had these Tupperware measuring cups. I've had mine for over 30 years. I think they came in gold, green and orange. I like that they have 1/3, 2/3, 3/4 sizes. The handle of my 1/3 cup is marred where our long buried dog chewed on it. No, I didn't intentionally let her play with it.

The new Tupperware measuring cups don't have holes in the handles or they didn't the last time I saw a new one. I broke a hook on my matching hanger so I've been using cup hooks in the door, but the cups swing around on them when you open or close the door. I found this orange one at a garage sale sometime ago and just got it drilled out and hung up today. Now I feel organized!

I still have and use a light green colored set I inherited from my mother. I agree the varied sizes are wonderful. Mine come in sizes 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, and 1 cup. I keep mine handy in a drawer right next to the stove.

I love my Tupperware and I have it from decades ago and it's still in great shape. Nothing better in the kitchen.

The only one I still have is 1/2 cup. I use it all the time. Was wishing the other day that I had the rest of the set. Have no idea what happened to them.

I still have mine, but I don't have the hanger anymore. I love them.

I have a orange set, mostly intact but no hanger, and an old avacado green set that is missing a few pieces.. but I get by. I just keep mine in a little used baking drawer! :)
