I need to replace my set of dry measures.

They amount markings have faded off of the plastic set of dry measuring cups (it has been 7 years). Do you have any suggestions for a set where the markings should hold up indefinitely, even with dishwasher use? The set has no defects other than be able to decipher with absolute certainty which is which!

I recommend a scale!
Failing that, I can recommend metal dry measures with the size stamped into the handle. I got mine at Marshall's, and they are oval...would have preferred round but I got what they had.
I recycled my old plastic cups by using them as scoops in my flour and sugar canisters. Using a scoop enables me to lightly sprinkle the flour into the measuring cups (instead of using the 'dip and sweep' method, which results in packing the flour and giving a heavier end product.)

I have a scale! I need measuring cups! ;)

But looking for stamped in measurements is a good idea. Thanks!

Cuisipto oval shaped cups are great. Try their oval measuring spoons

Cuisipro, yes! I was just going to suggest them. I have both cups and spoons and can't imagine any I'd like better.
