Unless otherwise mentioned, all Chef In You recipes (excluding Member Recipes) follow the US Dry and Liquid measurements. I thought of doing this chart given that many of our readers follow the metric system and always have a query with the measurements. Hope this helps. US Dry Volume Measurement

1/16 tsp dash
1/8 tsp a pinch
3 tsp 1 tbsp
1/8 cup 2 tbsp
1/4 cup 4 tbsp
1/3 cup 5 tbsp plus 1 tsp
1/2 cup 8 tbsp
3/4 cup 12 tbsp
1 cup 16 tbsp
1 Pound 16 ounces

US Liquid Volume Measurement
Measure Equivalent
8 Fluid ounces (oz) 1 cup
1 Pint (=16 fluid ounces) 2 cups
1 Quart 2 Pints (= 4 cups)
1 Gallon 4 Quarts (= 16 cups)

(*)The liquid measurement is mentioned as Fluid ounces. The ones refereed as just "oz" are not fluid ounces.
Note: In cases where higher precision is not justified, it may be convenient to round these conversions off as follows:
1 cup = 250 mL 1 pint = 500 mL 1 quart = 1 L 1 gallon = 4 L
