DRY MEASURE CONVERSION CHART
Use the volume converter for the conversion of teaspoons to tablespoons and ounces to cups and other measurements.
Dry measurements are not typically used in USA recipes. Those from the USA generally measure ingredients by volume rather than by weight. Dry measurements are used mainly for measuring fresh produce. Do not confuse dry measure with liquid measure, because they are not the same.
1/16 teaspoon = a dash
1/8 teaspoon = a pinch
3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon = 1/2 ounce = 14.3 grams
2 tablespoons = 1/8 cup = 1 fluid ounce = 28.3 grams
4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup = 2 fluid ounces = 56.7 grams
5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon = 1/3 cup = 2.6 fluid ounces = 75.6 grams
8 tablespoons = 1/2 cup = 4 ounces = 113.4 grams = 1 stick butter
12 tablespoons = 3/4 cup = 6 ounces = .375 pounds = 170 grams
16 tablespoons = 1 cup = 8 ounces – ½ pound = 226.8 grams
32 tablespoons = 2 cups = 16 ounces = 1 pound = 453.6 grams
64 tablespoons = 4 cups = 32 ounces = 2 pounds = 907 grams
If you aren’t sure the above table is what you need, there are stable conversion charts and measuring sets that can ensure you’ll have the correct amount of each item you need for your recipes.
