Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

An ounce is a measurement of mass, whereas a fluid ounce is a measurement of volume. One fluid ounce is 1.804 cubic inches. So it would depend entirely on what your converting. If you had one ounce of water, then it would be one fluid ounce. However, if you had one ounce of cream, it would be a little less than a fluid ounce, becuse cream has a lower density than water.

But, for the most part, if you're measureing things you're going to cook, the units are close enough to the same to make little to no difference.
