DRY MEASURE CONVERSION CHART

Use the volume converter for conversion of teaspoons to tablespoons and ounces to cups and other

Dry measurements are not typically used in USA recipes; dry measurements are used mainly for measuring fresh produce. Do not confuse dry measure with liquid measure, because they are not the same.

3 teaspoons  = 1 tablespoon = 1/2 ounce = 14.3 grams

2 tablespoons = 1/8 cup = 1 fluid ounce = 28.3 grams

4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup = 2 fluid ounces = 56.7 grams

5 1/3 tablespoons = 1/3 cup = 2.6 fluid ounces = 75.6 grams

8 tablespoons = 1/2 cup = 4 ounces = 113.4 grams = 1 stick butter

12 tablespoons = 3/4 cup = 6 ounces = .375 pound = 170 grams

32 tablespoons = 2 cups = 16 ounces = 1 pound = 453.6 grams

64 tablespoons = 4 cups = 32 ounces = 2 pounds = 907 grams

LIQUID MEASURE CONVERSION CHART

In the US, liquid measurement is not only used for liquids such as water and milk, it is also used when measuring other ingredients such as flour, sugar, shortening, butter and any more liquids on the kitchen.

dash = less than 1/4 teaspoon

1 tbsp = 3 tsp = 1/2 fl oz

1/8 cup = 1 fl oz = 2 tbsp =   6 tsp

1/4 cup = 2 fl oz = 4 tbsp = 12 tsp

1/2 cup = 4 fl oz = 8 tbsp = 24 tsp

1 cup  = 8 fluid ounces = 1/2 pint = 237 ml

2 cups = 16 fluid ounces = 1 pint = 474 ml

4 cups = 32 fluid ounces = 1 quart = 946 ml

2 pints = 32 fluid ounces = 1 quart = 0.964 liters

1/4 quart =1/2 pt = 1 cup = 8 fl oz

1/2 quart = 1 pt = 2 cups = 16 fl oz

4 quarts = 128 fluid ounces = 1 gallon = 3.784 liters

8 quarts = one peck

1/4 gal = 1 qt = 2 pt = 4 cups = 32 fl oz

1/2 gal = 2 qt = 4 pt = 8 cups = 64 fl oz

1 gal = 4 qt = 8 pt = 16 cups = 128 fl oz

4 pecks = one bushel

Americans typically measure ingredients by volume, while just about everyone else measures them by weight. Here is a quick summery of some of the basic cooking conversions.
