I’m aware that different types of liquid measurements are used in the United States and throughout the world so Knowing the exact capacity of cups is essential for any kitchen when making recipes.
Since I have been getting a lot of questions on how to convert the measuring cup I use (the US standard Cup) to different units, I have decided to provide a convenient conversion chart for you to look up. I also have a post on oven temperature conversion for those who like to try out my recipes using a different oven from mine. I hope this will be of help?
THE BASICS OF LIQUID VOLUME KITCHEN MEASUREMENT
Kitchen liquid measurements are necessary for baking and cooking. When recipes call for a certain amount of liquid in a recipe, they often mean to use a specific volume measurement. This can be confusing, especially when you’re not used to using volume measurements in your kitchen.
WHY IS IT IMPORANT TO KNOW HOW TO MEASURE VOLUMES?
Converting liquid volume measurements can be complicated, especially if you aren’t sure what the exact conversion is. There are many different types of liquid measurement and knowing how to convert between liquid volume measurements will help you to determine the correct amount of ingredients to add to your recipes.
This Liquid Volume Measurement Conversion Chart is the perfect tool for anyone who needs to convert between liquid measurements and achieve complete success in their recipes.
LIQUID VOLUME MEASUREMENT CONVERSION CHART
The liquid volume conversion chart is a table that shows equivalents between different units of measurement for the volume of liquids.
There are various methods to measure fluid volume, and it can get confusing. To make things easier, here is a conversion chart that lists the common units of measurement regarding liquid volume, along with their conversions.
The table below provides an extensive range of metric conversion tables for liquid volume measurement. It is a simple, and quick guide to converting between different types of liquid measures.
|TEASPOON – Tsp.||TABLESPOON – Tbsp.||CUP – C||MILLILITER – ml||FLUID OUNCES – OZ|
|3 Tsp.||1 Tbsp.||1/16C||15ml||1/2fl. oz|
|6 Tsp.||2 Tbsp.||1/8C||30ml||1fl. oz|
|12 Tsp.||4 Tbsp.||1/4C||59ml||2fl. oz|
|16 Tsp.||5.3 Tbsp.||1/3C||79ml||2/3fl. oz|
|24 Tsp.||8 Tbsp.||1/2C||118ml||4fl. oz|
|32 Tsp.||10.6 Tbsp.||2/3C||158ml||5⅓fl. oz|
|36 Tsp.||12 Tbsp.||3/4C||177ml||6fl. oz|
|48 Tsp.||16 Tbsp.||1C||237ml||8fl. oz|
|96 Tsp.||32 Tbsp.||2C||473ml||16fl. oz|
HOW TO MEASURE LIQUID VOLUME (GALLONS, LITERS, QUARTS, AND PINTS)
We commonly refer to volume in terms of teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, milliliter, and fluid ounces but there are other units of measurement that can make your recipes easier to follow especially when measuring in larger quantities. While most recipes require basic conversions, there are some instances where it’s useful to know these measurements.
There are certain instances when these measurements are more practical than the basic conversions.
|1 Quart||4 Cups||946ml||2 pints|
|1 Gallon||16 Cups||4 quarts||128fl.oz|
|1 liter||3.5 Cups||1000ml||33.8fl.oz|
|1 pint||2 Cups||480ml||16fl. oz|
HANDY NOTES ON DAILY VOLUME CONVERSIONS
- 1 Quart = 4 cups = 946ml = 2 pints
- 1 Gallon = 4 Quarts = 16 Cups = 128fl.oz
- 1 liter =1.057 Quarts = 1000ML
- 1 Pint = 2 Cups = 473ml
HOW MANY CUPS IN A QUART?
1 Quart = 4 cups
It is equal to 1/4 of a gallon or 4 cups in the imperial system.
HOW MANY CUPS IN A PINT?
2 cups = 1 pint
HOW MANY CUPS IN A HALF PINT?
½ Pint = 1 cup
HOW MANY PINTS IN A QUART?
1 Quart=2 pint
- These conversions have been rounded up or down to make measuring easier and this will have very little to no difference in your resulting recipe.
- These conversions work only for the US customary units only.
- There is a big difference between Fluid Ounces and Dry Ounces conversions. You can check more on the difference in my article on How Many Ounces in a Cup – Dry and Wet.
- Fluid Ounces = Volume Measurement
- Dry Ounces = Weight Measurement
