What do you do when your recipe calls for grams, but you only have measuring cups? How do you measure a pinch? Converting cooking measurements into ones that work with the measuring tools in your kitchen doesn’t have to be a challenge – just use our guide to make the math easy.

Here are some of the most common measurement conversions from metric to those typically used in the U.S.

Metric to Standard
5 ml = 1 teaspoon
15 ml = 1 tablespoon
30 ml = 1 fluid ounce
240 ml = 1 cup
1 liter = 34 fluid ounces
1 liter = 4.2 cups
1 gram = 0.035 ounce
100 grams = 3.5 ounces
500 grams = 1.10 pounds

Oven temperatures can be listed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. Here are some of the most common conversions.

Celsius to Fahrenheit
150 C = 300 F
180 C = 350 F
190 C = 375 F

Did you know that a stick of butter is 4 ounces, which is the same as 8 tablespoons or half a cup? Here are some other equivalents that might come in handy.

Cups to Tablespoons
1/8 cup = 2 tablespoons
1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons
1/3 cup = 5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon
1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons
3/4 cup = 12 tablespoons
1 cup = 16 tablespoons

Tip: A pinch is technically 1/8 of a teaspoon, but it is such a small measurement you may be better off going with the amount you can “pinch” between your fingers!

it is nice to be able to download coupons on card, but I have been downloading a lot of coupons on the dollar general web site. and I went to their store sunday week ago and I was charged full price for over half of what I bought. so I took them ideas back Saturday. and I tried working with the woman and the cash register and the manager of the store . and 90 percent of everything i wanted to purchase. rang up full price. the manager all she said was she was sorry.

I also had the same results as mhdjl below (over 2 years ago); the document stopped printing after the 1st line about butter. Would be nice to have the entire conversion chart print.
