I thought this would be really useful for measuring small quantities, and indeed it was, until I followed the care instructions and put it in the dishwasher. What came out was a completely plain glass; perfect if you want to drink shots, but useless for measuring anything. I notice that others have had the same issue; this item is clearly not fit for purpose. I took it back to the Taunton branch, where I was offered a replacement, which I declined because the same thing would happen. Not at all up to Lakeland's usual standards; very disappointing.
