Problem converting measurements?

Postby fredrikw » Sat Jul 09, 2005 10:18 pm

Here are some links that will help you convert to and from all kinds of measurement systems:

type in the conversion like this:
4 deciliter in cups
4 oz in centiliters
56 pounds in kg
if you don't get the reply you expect, look for spelling mistakes or abbreviations.

for those of you that aren't google savvy or like to use something a bit more intuitive and usable
just tune in what kind of measurement (length, kitchen etc) and choose from the drop down lists.
(direct link to kitchen measurements )

This is all you need! Happy cooking :D

And for those who use OS 10.4 (Tiger), there's a wealth of conversion and body mass/index related widgets for Dashboard (some much nicer than others):

Nice one! :D To both of you. Unfortunately I'm a Panther dinosaur, but the widgetty thing's a really good idea.

A problem I've found is that American recipes measure by volume (cups) and English ones by weight (grams or ounces).

1 US cup = 225ml = ¾ UK cup = 110g wheat flour = 125g rice flour = 150g dried fruit = 200g lentils = 210g rice or sugar = 100g almonds = 110g cocoa or cornflour = 70g rolled oats or breadcrumbs.

(All are slightly rounded for convenience and measured by eye).

A US pint is smaller than an English pint. A cup is equal to half a pint in both systems.

Is this true? The mind boggles. Perhaps a war would sort this out.

On the subject of conversions, here's a previous thread which may be of help for anyone who wants to lift in kg, but has only got lb plates.
