Cooking weights and measures

Cooking recipe units are measured in either mass (weight), volume or quantity. Converting a weight cooking unit (ounce, pound etc) to a volume unit (cup, tablespoon etc) is not possible unless you know the density of that ingredient.

Weight:

The US and the British recipes use pounds and ounces and the rest of the world uses grams and kilograms for weight measurement. To convert between the weight units, please check weight conversion page.

Here is the list from pounds to grams US cooking weight measures:

1 Pound =

  • 16 ounces
  • 0.45 kilogram
  • 453.592 grams

Volume:

The liquid ingredients are measured by volume. The United States uses the US customary units and the British uses imperial units for volume measurement. The rest of the world uses the metric volume units. To convert between the liquid cooking recipe units, please check all cooking conversion page.

Here is the list from the largest (gallon) to the smallest (teaspoon) US cooking volumetric measures:

1 US fluid gallon =

  • 3.785411784 liters
  • 4 quarts
  • 8 pints
  • 16 cups
  • 128 fluid ounces
  • 256 tablespoons
  • 768 teaspoons

Temperature:

The oven temperatures may be quoted in degrees in Celsius or Fahrenheit (US and Canada). To convert between the oven temperatures, please check Fahrenheit and Celsius converter page.

Here is the list for the common oven temperatures (rounded to the closest oven temperature equivalent in °C):

  • 200 - 225 °F = 90 - 110 °C
  • 250 - 275 °F = 120 - 135 °C
  • 300 - 325 °F = 150 - 160 °C
  • 350 - 375 °F = 180 - 190 °C
  • 400 - 425 °F = 200 - 220 °C
  • 450 - 475 °F = 230 - 250 °C
  • 500 - 525 °F = 260 - 270 °C
