We're pleased to introduce this unusual and extremely useful utility prop. Whenever we're confronted with a trailer that looks too good to be true, our first priority for you, our customers, is to inspect the actual prop and determine if it's actually as good as advertised. "Switch Cup" is even BETTER in person. Truly, this has so many incredible uses, and you're limited only by your imagination. In all the applications, you're able to demonstrate that a bill or card or prediction has been in full view, in the dish, since before the item was even created. Imagine the possibilities!

In the trailer you see an almost color-changing quality so they can illustrate the change. But we suggest in your work you use it to reveal signed cards or bills or reveal predictions. The mechanism that effects the change will last forever and is built with the highest quality. The dish itself has an understated, decorative feel. It's natural in a home or restaurant setting, but adds interest if it's presented in a more formal environment.

The other point to realize with "Switch Cup" is that, as shown, the apparatus does 90% of the switch for you. You must have whatever you wish to switch in concealed in one hand. But this doesn't require any advanced sleight of hand. There are numerous ways to get into the necessary position without any difficult techniques. And as always with effects we offer, the creator teaches in great detail many handling options, and a full discussion of how this amazing apparatus works.

With some creative thought, "Switch Cup" just might be the perfect, unassuming prop that takes your show to the next level.

Includes gimmick and video instructions.


Customer reviews for Switch Cup



Just finished evaluating and working with this product using different ideas and items I must say in highly impressed with the reactions I get from my spectators as one person stated I've never seen real magic before but I'm a believer now I've got a feeling I'll be ordering a second one because as much request I get from this one it's going to wear out fast.



On this Gimmick there are various reviews, between negative and positive, like all gimmicks. I can guarantee it's done pretty well and does the job excellently. If used correctly it lasts a lifetime. I recommend it, even if you run with people close.



I purchased this a while back and just realized I never reviewed it. I mean, I don't like reviewing things before actually using them in performance, which I have not yet done (only because of covid) but why did I think of it now and decide to now? Well, I'll start with that. The main part of this prop, which is the dish itself is EXTREMELY durable! I found out by accident. I was practicing a clean-up movie I'm working on for my routine so that l can almost immediately hand it out for a brief examination. I was practicing over a hard concrete floor. Forgetting my hands are what they used to be, I dropped it. It was a HARD landing.
I thought for sure I was out $45 and would need a new one, in that fraction of a second. I was shocked when I picked it up that it was not only intact, but without a scratch! It immediately reminded that I need to review this thing even though I haven't used it in an actual performance and probably won't until audiences are feeling extra safe, post pandemic.
I certainly can't wait!
I have had a favorite routine in my act for several years. I love the routine and it fries people every time (I believe) but it has a sleight of hand switch that I've always felt could look cleaner and more fair if I never had to physically touch the bill.
As soon as I saw the ad/video for this, it all started to come together in my head. After getting it, I discovered through practice that it is probably the PERFECT solution for my problem.
I understand that most people may not be able to make sense out if using this in a practical way. I know that is a worry for many, but if you can make it work, as I have and found it fits so well into my routine, this thing is a well made device that I think will hold up just fine for a long time!
I feel like my switch/motivation is super clean and justified with this, as well as my use of the dish itself.
I can't wait to try it in the real world and am confident it is going to help make frying those minds even easier!

Clever device, works well, and fun to use. I took off one star because the gimmick is a bit fragile and can be bent if not careful, which would render it unusable.



Sitting on the wall with this one to some extent. The idea is great but I wish it had been a touch larger to use. The special "cover" is a touch flimsy and yes I can see prolonged use damaging this so it won't be usable anymore, so yes care should be taken in the handling. Even after a few attempts, I don't think that anything folded more than once will keep it in place or give it away when you make that special move etc... With larger items and folds it is clumsy. If you look carefully at the video you can see just that moment hesitation. Coins are good, billets are fine but anything less than thin playing cards makes it...awkward. BUT again better magicians may be able to have it placed well and centered.


Community questions about Switch Cup

Have a question about this product? It's possible others do too. Ask here and other Vanishing Inc. Magic customers will be able to respond with assistance! Alternatively, email us and we can help too.

  • Matthew asks: What material is the cup made of? Will it shatter if dropped on the floor like a china cup?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is made of a durable composite which means it can withstand falls even onto hard surfaces.
  • Steve asks: Can the little dish be examined?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can start the routine by having it examined.
  • Philip asks: Can a billet made from a business card folded into quarters (like acidus novis billet) fit into the gimmick?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It should be fine for regular sized business cards.
  • Mike asks: Are additional non-gimmicked cups available for purchase so that you could have a “set” of them?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Not at this time.
  • Theresa asks: Could you use this to switch a coin?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: In theory, a small one would work, but you might have to cover some noise.
  • Thomas asks: Strange question perhaps, but can it handle liquid or moist items in the cup before? I perform bar magic and it would be ideal for my routine to start with a few lime wedges, cherries, etc. in the cup and then dump them out to use the "impromptu" saucer in the effect.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, it could.
  • W S asks: Is there any noise associated with the actual action of the cup?

    • 1. Iain answers: None, under normal performance situations.
    • 2. Gordon answers: Search for a demo on YouTube from Stevens Magic. You'll hear a distinct noise that occurs when the switch it made.

  • Les asks: Approximately how thick can the switched out item be?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: A folded card, folded bill or small coin would be fine.
  • Joseph asks: Can it be filled with soy sauce and used at the table? Could I convert a similar dish to do the same thing? If you could offer a set of ungimmicked matches, they would immediately be in my cupboard. If I could fashion a match for one on a restaurant table, I’d be over the moon with excitement...

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It could be, but you would have to clean it out before use.
  • Joseph asks: Can I do this wearing short sleeves?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, you can.
  • John asks: Can I switch in a signed card, etc.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: I don't see why not.
  • Craig asks: What are the exact dimensions of the cup? I'm shopping for some regular ones and I want to match the size, if not the pattern.

    • 1. Greg answers: It is about 4 inches in diameter.
