How many liters in a gallon, cups in a gallon, quarts in a liter, cups in a quart, tablespoons in a cup, teaspoons to tablespoons? This printable measurement conversions chart has everything you need including liquid and dry volume equivalents, oven temperatures, and weight equivalents for success in the kitchen!
Whether you are a pro cook or just starting out, we have all come across questions like these. How many liters are in a gallon, or how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon, or how many cups are in a quart or a pint? I have to ask myself those questions often, especially when making ice cream! Or perhaps you want to make a cup of detox water into a pitcher or gallon, or cut-in-half or double a soup recipe.
Having this breakdown of all the volume equivalents for liquid and dry ingredients, oven temperatures, and weight equivalents makes cooking so much easier. At the end of this post I also include a quick look on frequently asked questions, if you are just looking for one specific measurement conversion.
How to measure properly
Liquid and dry ingredients measure differently and should be used in their designed measuring cups. To measure dry ingredients properly, scoop into a measuring cup and use the back of a knife to scrape away extra off the top and level the measurement out. Some recipes may call for you to simply shake the measuring cup to even the top, so read recipe instructions accordingly.
You may also come across recipes online that are listed in grams instead of ounces. Shifting from ounces to grams can be mind boggling. So having this handy measurement conversion chart is convenient to have around so you can pop a quick eye on it to know how to achieve converting measurements.
It is also handy to know amounts like cups, fluid ounces, and how many gallons in a liter when price shopping ingredients to find the deals that provide more for less. Print this measurement chart and hang it up in the kitchen so you never have to question conversions!
