This is my favorite conversion chart, ever.
At first glance, the chart may seem intimidating especially to the humble home cook.

I will try to break it down for you:

  • 1 GALLON = 8 pints  4 quarts ☼ 16 cups
  • 1 QUART = 2 pints  4 cups
  • 1 PINT = 2 cups
  • 1 CUP = 16 tbsp  48 tsp
  • 2/3 CUP = 10 tbsp + 2 tsp
  • 1/3 CUP = 5 tbsp + 1 tsp
  • 3/4 CUP = 12 tbsp
  • 1/2 CUP = 8 tbsp
  • 3/8 CUP = 6 tbsp
  • 1/4 CUP = 4 tbsp  12 tsp
  • 1/8 CUP = 2 tbsp  6 tsp
  • 1/16 CUP = 1 tbsp  3 tsp
  • 1 TBSP = 3 tsp

Do I need to keep going? OK, some will be rounded to the closest equivalent.

  • 1 TBSP = 15 ml
  • 1 TSP = 5 ml
  • 3/4 TSP = 3.75 ml
  • 1/2 TSP = 2.5 ml
  • 1/4 TSP = 1.25 ml
  • 1/8 TSP = 0.63 ml
  • 1/8 CUP = 1 oz  30 ml
  • 1/4 CUP = 2 oz  60 ml
  • 1/3 CUP = 3 oz  80 ml
  • 1/2 CUP = 4 oz  120 ml
  • 2/3 CUP = 5.5 oz  160 ml
  • 3/4 CUP = 6 oz  180 ml
  • 1 CUP = 8 oz  ½ pint  240 ml

I hope this helps!
You’re welcome.

      1. That’s how I did it when I started cooking, too. But I realized that beginner cooks may want to know exactly how much of something to use to make the recipe work, so I started measuring things to make it easy for everyone.
