Are you sure the last level indicated (i.e. 235ml) isn't just below the lip of the cup? (i.e. if you filled it 100% full to capacity to the top it would be 250ml?) Did they just not have the space to inscribe the cup with "250ml" at the very, very top?

the last level reads 1cup 235, 1/2 cup reads 120.

I think that might be your answer then.

I also have plastic cup measures that do that too. When you fill it absolutely to the rim, it's 250ml for 1 cup and the 1/2 cup will be 125ml to the rim. They just don't have the space on the side to indicate that level in print.

Not very useful though, I agree. icon_cool.gif

I was wondering this too. I bought the pink kitchen aid measuring cups and they say 235ml on them, which I thought was really odd.
