Cooking conversions - British Pint is not the same as US

Postby Guest » Tue Aug 26, 2008 10:41 pm

I notice that the cooking conversions show a US pint and Fl Oz as being the same as a British one.

The Fluid Oz are slightly different, but the most important difference is that there are 20 Oz in a pint in the UK. That's why the British gallon is so much larger than a US gallon.

The calculations are correct on the Capacity and Volume conversion page.
