Cooking Measurements

Below are some of the most common cooking measurements conversions in chart format.Since most of the recipes found in this site are listed using US or Imperial measurements meaning they are in cups, teaspoons, tablespoons, ounces and pounds.

I’ve create a page as a reference for easy cooking measurements conversion from imperial to metric. These charts are the common cooking conversion chart that I usually use and it’s really a great help. You’ll also notice that most of the cooking measurements figures are rounded off so don’t be surprise if you compare the numbers of the cooking conversion chart with a conversion calculator, there’s a negligible difference.

Remember, wherever you are in the part of the world, these cooking measurements conversion charts will come in very handy.
