Metric Conversion - Cooking

Postby DellDGM » Sun Jul 09, 2006 7:10 pm

The cooking conversion is exactly what I was looking for but you might want to cheak you metric cup measurements

ie 1 metric cup = 250 gms or ml not 200
or 0.25 kilogram or litre

how does this effect the conversion into us measurements?

The actual value of "cup" differs as "cup" is not a strict measure. The size of a cup is not oficially defined anywhere. In the sources I deal with the size of a cup is more often defined equal to 0.2 litre.

If you need to use a cup that is 0.25 litre, yiou can use the following conversion:

When converting from cups to anythings else, first multiply your value by 1.25. Then enter the figure next to "cup" unit in our converter.

When converting from something else to cups, first use our converter to get the answer in 0.2l cups. Then you can convert it to 0.25l cups by dividing the figure by 1.25.
