I've been meaning to say something for a long time and never got around to it but here goes. This one is about those glass Pyrex measuring cups. (Plastic ones as well).
Why the HECK dont they make them for us laft-handers? Ever notice when you have to measure the amount of milk, or flour, whatever, that you always have to have the handle to the right, to see the measurements. Why the heck cant they just make some witht he handle on the left side so we can see what we're doing without having to turn it around every time? Is it just me or does anyone else have the problem? Simply print the measures on the other side too, or put the handles on tho other side, or make double handle measuring cups! Heck, they make everything else for left handed people. Scissors, guitars...I hate having to turn it around to read the measure just to have to turn it back again to pick it up.
I might be the only one with this issue but its annoying, we need more left handed kitchen utinsils, lol.

I'm a laft hander too and it IS frustrating! he, he, he..... No seriously, I'm a leftie and it's more a nusiance than anything else. It's one of things where you go to read the numbers, realize you have to turn it around (even reading through glass because the numbers are backwards), let out a heavy sigh in frustration and then turn the darn thing around.

I'm a right hander, but I too turn them around to read......I also read thru the glass too.
what about a left handed whip?

This -- measuring cups -- has never really bothered me, but I'd like a left-handed measuring tape!

Now this is odd---I am right-handed but find myself having to turn the bugger around to find certain measurments! Maybe it's just me or the particular measurments I need but it seems a fairly universal problem--whatever measurment I want is on the other side!! I don't think it is either right handed or left handed!! Just a roll of the dice!

Just get one of these:

Amazon.com: Liquid Measuring Cup - Angled - 2 cup: Kitchen & Dining

You can read it from the top. I think it's more accurate and a lot faster to use. I use it all the time and also a small 4 tablespoon size. (The 4 tablespoon size is great for mixing drinks!)
