# Cooking Measurements and Unit Conversions

Since I started my blog 15 months ago, I have been meaning to post cooking measurements and unit conversions on my blog. Finally, after having prepared this and sitting on it for more than 6 months, I am posting this useful information! I hope, it will be helpful.

C = Celsius

COMMON COOKING MEASUREMENTS:

1 tsp. = 1/6 fl. oz.
1 tbsp. = 3 tsp. = 1/2 fl. oz.
1/4 cup = 4 tbsp. = 12 tsp. = 2 fl. oz.
1/3 cup = 5 tbsp. = 16 tsp. = 2.7 fl. oz.
1/2 cup = 8 tbsp. = 24 tsp. = 4 fl. oz.
3/4 cup =12 tbsp. = 36 tsp. = 6 fl. oz.
1 cup = 16 tbsp. = 48 tsp. = 8 fl. oz.
2 cups = 1 pint = 16 fl. oz.
4 cups = 1 quart = 2 pints = 32 fl. oz.
8 cups = 1/2 gal. = 64 fl. oz.
4 quarts = 1 gallon = 8 pints = 16 cups = 128 fl. oz.
