Conversions

I’m ok using any measurement, truly I’m as happy with  cups,  ounces or grams. However I never remember where to find a conversion chart! So I decided to do one here especially as I cook using both American and English recipes and am apt to writing a recipe in either US or UK measurements.

This is my guide only, as accurate as I can find, probably not exact but will work for the use of general home cooking.

Some charts say 1 oz is 25 grams some say 30 grams. Well I weighed 1 ounce on my digital scales and 1 0z was 28 grams so  I will round-up to 30 grams as it makes it easier! The pound conversion is based on the weight of 1ib = 16 oz. The cup conversion is approximate.

Weight
1/2 ounce = 15 grams
1 ounce = 30 grams
1.5 ounces = 45 grams
2 ounces = 60 grams
3 ounces = 90 grams
4 ounces = 120 grams
5 ounces = 150 grams
6 ounces = 180 grams
7 ounces = 210 grams
10 ounces = 300 grams
12 ounces = 360 grams
16 ounces = 450 grams
18 ounces = 500 grams

1/4 cup = 2 ounce

1/2 cup = 4 ounce

3/4 cup = 6 ounce

1 cup = 8 ounce

1/4 pound = 4 ounces = 125 grams

1/2 pound = 8 ounces =250 grams

3/4 pound = 12 ounces =325 grams

1 pound = 16 ounces = 450 grams

Volume

25 ml =1 fluid ounce

50 ml= 2 fl ounces = 1/4 cup

75 ml= 3 fl ounces

100 ml= 4 fl ounces = 1/2 cup

150 ml = 5 fl ounces

200 ml = 6 fl ounces = 3/4 cup

250 ml = 8 fl ounces = 1 cup

300 ml = 10 fl ounces

600 ml = 20 fl ounces
