What's Cups, Doc?

A little comparison of cups:

The ALA coffee cup holds a little LESS than 1 ¼ cups, 9 fluid ounces it looks like.

The Shh, I'm Reading cup holds a little MORE than 1 ¼ cups, very nearly 10 fluid ounces.

The UC San Diego coffee cup holds OVER 2 cups, I would say 18 or 19 fluid ounces. The measuring cup is FULL to the BRIM!

(Did you note how Pyrex® is plastered all over the Corning product, while Anchor-Hocking goes for a more restrained look?)

The measuring cup holds, as you probably guessed, 2 cups of beverage.

So that makes the UC San Diego cup the CLEAR WINNER!
