Copper Measuring Cups

I have a set of these heavy copper measuring cups with brass handles and I love them. You can melt butter on the stove and they stand up to the high heat without warping. One thing puzzles me though. There is no 1/3 cup. The set of 4 includes 1 cup, 3/4 cup, 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup. Mine are hanging on the side wall of a cabinet and I use them all the time....except when I need 1/3 cup of something. via

.. charming ... wonder if we could find new ... finding an older set might be difficult ... but they are lovely. Horrific rain last night in CT ...

Perhaps the maker had a thing for even numbers (all sizes can be evenly divided by 2), or might it have been that the 1/3 cup size would not have fit well when all stacked together?

That must be the reason. I hadn't thought of that possibility.

They are available used on eBay. I googled copper measuring cups with brass handles and several sets came up. I got mine used (of course). I forgot to mention they are tin lined.

Good luck, Rosemary
