Cooking Conversion Chart

Here’s the most common cooking measurements chart that I commonly used in my recipes. The food measurements in this site are listed using US or Imperial measurements meaning that they are in teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, pounds and ounces.

So, this page will be my get to go reference for easy cooking conversions from imperial to metric. The charts below are the common conversion chart for cooking that really help me in my daily cooking. You will also notice that most of the kitchen measurements figures are rounded off so don’t be surprise if you compare the numbers shown in the cooking charts with a conversion calculator that there’s a negligible difference.

But remember, these cooking conversion tables will come in very handy wherever you are in the part of the world.
