Online Conversion Tools & Charts

Some people prefer online conversion tools while others like the old school conversion charts. The Calculator King has a range of converters that can help with specific conversions, but below we've included some useful conversion tables if you're the type that prefers that approach.

Converting Between Common US Measures

Note that the below table uses US measures of tablespoons, fluid ounces, cups, pints, etc. If you'd like to imperial or metric values please see our volume and weight converter pages.

MeasurementEquivalent Measurement
1 tablespoon (US)3 teaspoons (US)
1 fluid ounce (US)2 tablespoons (US)
1 cup (US)8 fluid ounces (US)
1 pint (US)2 cups (US)
1 quart (US)2 pints (US)
1 gallon (US)4 quarts (US)
1 pound (US)16 ounces (US)

Oven Temperature Conversions

Converting between oven temperatures in recipes can be a crucial step when adapting a recipe from one region to another or when using an oven with a different temperature scale. The most common conversion is between Celsius and Fahrenheit. It's important to note that ovens can have variations in accuracy and heat distribution, so it's advisable to use an oven thermometer for precise temperature monitoring. Additionally, when converting oven temperatures, it's a good practice to make slight adjustments to cooking times as needed, as different ovens may have varying heating speeds and intensities. By understanding the conversion formula and considering these factors, you can confidently adapt recipes and achieve successful baking or cooking results.

Converting From Volume To Weight

The key consideration when converting ingredients from volume measures to weight measures is the density of the ingredient. Ingredients can have different densities, meaning that the weight of a given volume can vary significantly. For example, 1 cup of flour will weigh less than 1 cup of sugar due to differences in particle size and packing. To convert from volume to weight, it's essential to know the specific density of the ingredient you're working with. Below you'll find tables of the most common ingredients that require volume to weight conversion.

Considerations When Converting Recipe Ingredients

When converting recipes to different units, here are some considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Measurement conversions: Be aware of the conversion factors between different units of measurement, such as grams to ounces, cups to milliliters, or teaspoons to tablespoons. Use reliable conversion charts or online converters to ensure accuracy.
  2. Ingredient density: Ingredients can have different densities, so a cup of one ingredient may not weigh the same as a cup of another ingredient. Consider the density of the ingredient when converting between volume and weight measurements. For example, 1 cup of almond meal will weigh less than 1 cup of almonds.
  3. Precision and rounding: Precision may vary depending on the recipe and the units being used. Decide how precise you want your measurements to be and consider rounding the converted values accordingly. For example, if a recipe calls for 237 ml of water, you can round it to 240 ml for convenience.
  4. Recipe adjustments: Converting units may require adjusting other aspects of the recipe. For instance, changing the size of a baking pan or adjusting cooking times and temperatures to accommodate different units of measurement.
  5. Cultural differences: Be aware of cultural differences in ingredient names and availability. Some ingredients may have different names or may not be readily available in certain regions. Consider suitable substitutes or adapt the recipe to local ingredients if necessary.
  6. Taste and texture: Keep in mind that conversions may impact the taste and texture of the final dish. Adjustments may be needed to maintain the desired outcome. It's a good idea to test the converted recipe in small quantities before making larger batches.

Remember, converting recipes to different units is an approximation, and the original recipe may have been developed with specific units in mind. Therefore, it's always a good idea to exercise caution and use your judgment when converting recipes.
