Kitchen Measurements Equivalent Conversion Chart

Picture of Baking Measurement Tools - Tipnut.comHere is a printable copy of a recipe measurements equivalent and conversions chart that I designed to have at my fingertips when baking and cooking in the kitchen.

There are Liquid Measures equivalents, Dry Measures, U.S. to Canadian, Recipe Abbreviations, Oven Temperatures, Fahrenheit to Celsius oven temps, and a bit more. Some of the numbers were rounded up or down where necessary.

Charts like this are handy for sure, but the best tip for these kinds of charts is to laminate them or slip them in a plastic sleeve, then tape up inside a kitchen cupboard door–preferably at eye level for ease of use.

This keeps them out of sight when not needed, but easily accessible when you are up to your elbows in flour and need a quick check. When things get a little dusty (or maybe a smudge or two of dough on them), just wipe the sheet down with a wet cloth and it’s clean again. Can’t beat low maintenance kitchen helpers!

The file is in pdf format and you can download it here (pdf): Kitchen Equivalent Measurements. It’s a simple, clean layout without all the fuss that will print out on a full sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper.

If you have a blog or website and would like to offer this measurement equivalent chart to your visitors, feel free to upload it and give it away. Please keep the © Tipnut attribution in place at the bottom.

    I like the format of your conversion chart, but I noticed some errors.

    One U.S. gallon is defined as 231 cubic inches. One inch equals 2.54 centimeters exactly. So we calculate:

    231 x (2.54 x 2.54 x 2.54) = 3785.411784

    This is the number of cubic centimeters in one gallon.
    We’re not designing jet engines here, so 3785 is close enough.

    1 gallon = about 3785 cc
    1 quart = 1/4 gallon = (1/4) x 3785 cc = 946 cc (rounded)
    1 pint = 1/2 quart = (1/2) x 946 cc = 473 cc
    1 cup = 1/2 pint = (1/2) x 473 cc = 237 cc (rounded)

    but for the kitchen, 1 cup = 240 cc is, I suppose, more than close enough, and using the convention that 1 fluid ounce = 1/8 cup, we get 1 fluid ounce = 30 cc. (By one definition, I forget who uses it, 1 fluid ounce = 30 cc exactly.)

    Using 1 cup = 240 cc is not only more accurate than your table, it is also easier to divide into thirds and quarters. And 1 quart = 4 x 240 cc = 960 cc will help you to remember not to try to fit a liter into a quart bottle. (It’s really 946 cc, but the point is, it’s less than a liter.)

    Also:
    * you misspelled “Celsius”:
    * milliliters are not so much “Canadian” as “international”
    * “Tbsp” was left out of your list of abbreviations (capitalization counts here)

    I know, I’m a stickler for detail.
