If you are foody and loves to cook food by yourself, you may have realized that it is not the ingredients that make your food tasty rather, it is the quantity of the ingredient that makes them delicious.

However, estimating the exact quantity could be annoying many times. Your cooking is useless if you do not know the exact volume or weight unit of the ingredient you want to add to your cooking.

Fortunately, we have developed a tool that can do this difficult task for you in seconds and save you from adding measuring your ingredients. By using Tools City's cooking measurement converter, you will be able to convert the unit of your ingredient into any other unit, which makes it feasible for you.

However, one thing that must be noted here is that these tools only provide the standard values of your product’s density. Your ingredients may vary somewhat to others because of atmospheric changes. It also matters how tightly you have packed the container; hence, the results could be taken as a ‘rough estimate’.  

You may be doubting the differences between various conversions and why you should know the ingredient unit you are about to use for your cooking. Keep reading to find out.

Weight Conversions

You do not necessarily need to know the ingredient for using Weight Conversion from this online free tool.

For knowing it more conveniently, take a look at the table below:

  Gram (g) Kilogram (kg) Pound (lb) Ounce (oz)
1 Gram (g) 1 0.001 0.0022046 0.035274
1 Kilogram (kg) 1000 1 2.20462 35.27396
1 Pound (lb) 453.59237 0.45359 1 16
1 Ounce (oz) 28.34952 0.02835 0.0625 1
* These are round off values

You can also perform the conversion manually with the help of this table:

For Grams and Ounces

To convert grams to ounces: 

Value (in ounce) = Value (in grams) / 28.34952

0.035274 (oz) 1 (g) / 28.34952

To convert ounces to grams: 

Value (in grams) Value (in ounces) × 28.34952

1 (g) 0.035274 (oz) × 28.34952

For Grams and Pounds

To convert grams to pounds: 

Value (in pound) Value (in grams) 453.59237

0.0022046 (lb) = 1 / 453.59237

To convert pounds to grams:

Value (in grams) = Value (in pounds) × 453.59237

1 (g) 0.0022046 (lb) × 453.59237

Volume conversions

With the help of this tool, you can convert the volume into units that are more appropriate for your recipe.

The volume conversion table, just like the weight conversion table, can help in determining the factors   by which you must multiply or divide if you wish to switch between volume units:

For Milliliters and US Cups

To convert milliliters to cups:

Value (in cups) = Value (in milliliter) 236.588

0.0042268 (cups) 1 (ml) 236.588

To convert cups to milliliters: 

Value (in milliliter) Value (in cups) × 236.588

1 (ml) 0.0042268 (cups) × 236.588

For US Tablespoons and US Cups

To Convert tablespoons to cups: 

Value (in cups) Value (in tablespoon) 16

0.0625 (cups) 1 (tbsp) / 16

To convert cups to tablespoons: 

Value (in tablespoon) Value (in cups) × 16

1 (tbsp) 0.0625 (cups) × 16

For Milliliters and US Teaspoons

To convert milliliters to teaspoons: 

Value (in tsp) Value (in milliliter) 4.929

0.2029 (in tsp) 1 (ml) 4.929

To convert teaspoons to milliliters: 

Value (in milliliter) = Value (in tsp) × 4.929

1 (ml) 0.2029 (tsp) × 4.929

Weight to Volume conversions

Manual conversion from weight units to volume and vice versa is simple:

Density = Weight / Volume

For Example, if you want to know how many milliliters are there in a cup, you need to know if it is a cup of sugar, flour, honey, etc., because it is different for every ingredient.

In this online cooking measurement converter, there are seventeen essential ingredients:

  • Water
  • Milk
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Honey
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Rice (raw)
  • Oats
  • Jam
  • Nutella
  • Maple syrup
  • Cream 38% fat
  • Cream 18% fat

How to use Cooking Measurement Tool?

1. Choose the ingredient

The first step is to choose the ingredient, clicking on the ‘Ingredient’ option at the start of the tool. If the ingredient has different types, then click on its sub-category too.

Furthermore, if you cannot find the product but know its density, click on Advanced Mode and add the density value of your required product.

2. Enter your amount

Now, enter your amount in a specific unit you know the density, i.e., grams, milliliter, pound, etc.

3. Get Results 

Just after you have entered the requisite amount, the tool will show results. You can now make the recipe!
