Rated 2 out of 5 by Kristinnn23 be aware of measurements
The scoop has measurements on the inside, but packaging says "1 cup scoop". I never paid much attention to the marks. My dog is supposed to have 2 cups of food a day, so I was feeding 1 scoop in the morning and one at night. I noticed he was gaining weight after some time and couldn't figure out why. I don't give excessive treats and he gets exercise. Then I noticed the marks inside. The 1 cup mark is about a half inch from the top of the scoop. I filled the scoop with one cup of water using a measuring cup from my kitchen and found out I was feeding him an extra half cup of food a day. Doesn't sound like much but that's 1/4 of his daily recommendation. Overall, the scoop works, but I wish the 1 cup scoop truly held one cup, not that it just had a 1 cup line marked inside it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CutiemusMaximus Serves it's purpose exactly as one would expect.
I recently switched our cats' diets and decided to get a measuring scoop to ensure they eat the right amounts each day. For my household it wasn't a matter of overeating, but rather making sure they were eating a big enough portion of their new food to sustain a healthy lifestyle. My cats are 10 years old with dental problems typical to brachycephalic cats, so changes in their diet can be indicative to serious health concerns.
The best part of this scoop is the interior line measurements for 1 cup and 1/2 cup. According to their food packaging the two of them are to eat approx. 1/2 cup a day, and it is really easy to serve them by measuring out 1/2 cup twice a day and splitting it between their two bowls. Thanks to the precise measurements I can keep track of how much each cat is eating in a day.
I also love how the scoop is dishwasher safe, such a great feature! I picked one of the 2 cup scoops up for my new puppy coming soon, so I'll be sure to test and review that product in the future.
