November,

I was thinking that somewhere the measuring cup wasn't being tared out for some reason, and that the tip would rule that out.

Peter,

It's a valid assumption, but the evidence does not suggest a tare issue.  Like I said, I would sooner verify the volume of his measuring cup.  By verifying the weight of 1 cup of water, up to two things can be ascertained: volume and possibly tare error (unless on the freak chance the tare error is the exact weight of 0.5 cup water).
