MEASUREMENT CONVERSION TABLES
FOR INTERNATIONAL RECIPES

Standard Measurements

1 cup = 24 centiliter (cl) or 240 milliliter (ml)
1 tablespoon (tbsp) = 15 milliliter (ml)
1 teaspoon (tsp) = 5 milliliter (ml)
1 fluid ounce (oz) = 30 milliliter (ml)
1 pound (lb) = 454 grams (gm)

Basic Cooking Rule: 16 ounces = 1 pound

Weight

Note(s):
– The two most commonly used units of weight (or mass) measurement for cooking in the United States are the ounce and the pound.
– Do not confuse the ounce of weight with the fluid ounce, because they are not the same; there is no standard conversion between weight and volume unless you know the density of the ingredient.
– To make matters worse, there are different kinds of weight measurement; Avoirdupois weight, Troy weight, and Apothecaries weight. In the U.S., when someone refers to pounds and ounces of weight (especially in cooking) they are usually referring to Avoirdupois weight.

1 ounce = 28.35 grams

Counting

Note:
Many foods are sold in quantities of dozen or gross. Eggs are a good example of something that you buy by the dozen. When referring to more than one dozen or gross, you do not add an “s” to the end; instead, you precede the word by the amount as follows.

Usage Examples:
One dozen eggs
Three dozen people
Five gross of pencils
It is also very common to use the phrase “half dozen” to mean six.
1 Dozen = 12
1 Gross = 12 Dozen or 144
