Does anyone have any idea why there is no 3/4 size in dry measuring cups?

Hi TiggyBee,

Have you been able to find what you are looking for?

Thanks Pierino for the metric lesson and the chuckle about the stoves!! : )

Tupperware's set also has 2/3 and 3/4 plus their measuring spoons include 1/8 and 1 1/2 tsp measures.

Assuming that you have cups that measure 1/2 and 1/4 cup for dry ingredients, just use those and turn everything into a larger vessel for pouring. But in dry measure, about 6 oz. European measurments are more precise, as they are metric---even if their stoves are devilish.

I have a plastic set that has a 2/3 C. and a 3/4 C. Really handy. I found mine at Cost Plus. Definitely not Williams Sonoma prices.

Williams Sonoma sells an odd size cup and spoon set from All Clad - http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/all-clad-stainless-steel-measuring-cups-and-spoons/?pkey=e%7Cmeasuring%20cups%7C6%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C24%7C%7C4&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules

There are. I have a set that includes one, too. (And a 2/3 cup.) ;o)

H'mm. I have two sets of dry measuring cups, one metal and one plastic. Both have a 3/4 cup size. Go figure!
