# Cooking Measurements and Conversion Charts

LIQUIDS
Spoon and cup measures should be filled until almost overflowing.
Measuring jugs need to be on a flat surface and read at eye level for accuracy.
teaspoons, millilitres, tablespoons and litres
Household cutlery volumes vary wildly. Be choosy about what you use.
Teaspoons from a century or so ago are about half the volume of today.
Instead, get a set of standardised spoon measurements.
Actual conversions
1 actual cup = 230 ml
4 2/5 actual cups (use 4 1/3) = 1 L
2 teaspoons = 1 dessertspoon
2 dessertspoons = 1 tablespoon
4 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
15 1/3 tablespoons (use16) = 1 cup
teaspoon tablespoon mls
1/4 1/16 0.9 ml
1/2 1/8 1.9 ml
1 1/4 3.75 ml
4 1 15 ml
Standardised metric conversions of Australia
4 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
1 standardised metric cup = 250ml
4 standardised metric cups = 1 L
12 1/2 tablespoons = 1 cup
teaspoon tablespoon mls
1/4 1/16 1.25 ml
1/2 1/8 2.5 ml
1 1/4 5 ml
4 1 20 ml
fluid ounces, millilitres, pints and litres
AAARRGH. How many measuring systems can there be?
The British Imperial System works on 20 fluid ounces of 28.41ml to a pint equalling 568.41ml.
The U.S. Customary System works on 16 fluid ounces of 29.57ml to a pint equal to 473.2ml. 1 wet pint
equals 1 pound. Note that the U.S. wet pint differs in volume to the dry pint (550.6cm
3
). In both systems,
1 pint equals 2 cups and 2 pints equal 1 quart. So cups, pints quarts and gallons all depend on which
system you use. Confused yet?
In the land of the decimal, 1000g = 1000ml =1kg = 1 L. Aren't we glad someone used their noggin?
Standardised metric conversions of cups and the like used in Australia are based
on the U.S. system.
I use the standardised metric cups and spoons of Australia.
