          Thank you so much for having this. I had visitors from Europe and I had no idea what the conversion was for their recipes

          Thank you Allrecipes for your conversion chart. I am visiting friends and wanted to bake a cake for them. Unfortunately their scale refused to do its job and we were stuck. Surfed the net and low and behold got our hands on the conversion from gms to cups. Now I can go ahead and put my cake in the bake. Thanks again.
          Sep. 6, 2009 11:38 am
          Thanks ar! now that I am in culinary school we use a scale to measure everything. Unfortunatly I cant buy one now so this has been really helpfull to practice at home!

          Sep. 25, 2009 3:40 am
          Thankyou! I don't know why all recipes can't just be in cups, it's so much easier than fiddling around with scales!
          Oct. 27, 2009 1:14 pm
          Thanks so much....the conversion tables make it easier to pick recipes from anywhere and get a reliable reference for measurements and not have to do guesswork and mess up recipes.
          Nov. 5, 2009 3:23 am
          I don't kno if it's just me but i think the American way is easier to read lol maybe i'm just lazy hehehe and want the easy way out.

          This table is great, but it would be faster if the recipes were printed in grams and cups. In the States we rarely bake by weight,but rather by cups. In the meantime thanks a million.
          Feb. 11, 2010 4:55 pm
          It's good to see that they have this for people but what if people need conversions for Chocolate when their baking?
          Apr. 1, 2010 3:49 pm

          This is a great help. I live in Europe but we're North American and most of my mom's recipes are in cups so trying to pass a recipe on to friends has been a real headache. Now I can convert before I give them the recipes!

          It's also popular in Europe to have recipes in deciliters. 1 cup = 2.4 dl.

          I need help. What is 900g of flour in cups? I can't figure it out. Please help me!!!
          Jun. 19, 2011 9:51 am
          Thanks for this lifesaver!
          Aug. 12, 2011 9:09 pm
          Thank you for this great chart. I would highly appreciate if you could kindly include butter in to this as well. Thanks!!!
          Aug. 12, 2011 9:11 pm
          Sorry about the mistake...Found that the butter too is there in the chart!! Thank you for this and Im definitely going to print this and hang it in my kitchen!!!
          Aug. 31, 2011 6:08 pm
          Yay! Alas!!! Grazie!!! I use a scale for weighing out my flour but always wondered about the other ingredients you have listed. Weighing makes for precise measurements & allows for a consistant outcome everytime.
          Sep. 4, 2011 11:43 pm
          This is fabulous as I'm English but living in Spain, I do have a set of cups but sometimes prefer to use the gram measurements, so this really is invaluable!
          Sep. 7, 2011 2:06 am
          Since I now live in the UK, this chart is ever so helpful. As an American, I naturally find the Imperial measure easier. Metrics mess with my head, but this chart rocks! Again, many thanks!!
          Oct. 13, 2011 6:49 am
          vegetable oil, would that be the same as the syrups and honey conversion
          Oct. 19, 2011 3:39 pm
          Toke, you can't be serious. I'm fairly certain a pastry chef would be able to make equally wonderful (not wonderfull, btw) cakes and desserts whilst using cups and ounces. Give me a break.
          Oct. 29, 2011 11:01 am
          Um, I think Toke is serious about a great pastry chef using grams instead of cups. For the same reason why Miren said the cup she measured didn't weight the same as the chart. That's because using a measuring cup is not precise due to different settling rates of the ingredients. Weighing dry ingredients is the way to have stuff come out consistently the same. BTW, you can use oz, but if you need anything less than that, we Americans all switch over to grams since nothing in our system exists smaller than an oz.
          Oct. 30, 2011 10:34 pm
          How about cheese(3/4)?(cups to gram)thanks....
          Nov. 3, 2011 1:45 pm
          so would 1g of salt be considered a dash of salt. Seriously I have a recipe that calls for 1g of salt and 1g os baking soda, none of the conversion charts have been helpful. So I guess a dash it is. Toke - Seriously, was all that even necessary? I don't think this forum was designed to berate they way anyone chose to measure their ingredients. Europeans do it one way and most Americans do it another!

          I sincerely enjoy this website and all the information....I use stainless steel measuring cups and spoons and a small scale when I need it. Plastic isn't accurate enough. Thanks.

          Sometimes I get frustrated with some receipes and measurements In Ontario the sour cream is not in oz but ml. The container I buy is 500 ml. I see it's 2/3 cup but if I have to convert on the actual receipe its still not what I need. Butter on some receipes the same problem. I have a hard time if wrapper is gone on my butter to see where the measurements are. Lol.. Do I use a liquid cup to measure if I don't need it melted? I luv the site and the receipes come out good its just takes me longer to make.

          Hello! There are a lot of recipes of bred for bread mashines and it's written "1 cup", "1 1 /2 cup" of water/milk or oil. So my question is how much ml is 1 cup? 250ml or ...? Thank you in advance.
          Mar. 3, 2014 7:20 am
          Thank you!!! I refer to this all the time.
          Apr. 17, 2014 6:19 am
          thank you very much my all recipes
          May 1, 2014 5:21 am
          Helpful, but remember that if a recipe was tested using the "scoop and level" method you cannot use equivalent weights or you'll very likely end up short the dry ingredients, flour almost certainly.
          Jul. 11, 2014 6:49 am
          This is not accurate. I was using this to cost some recipes and the amounts didn't seem right... I filled half a cup of flour and weighed it and it weighed 100 grams NOT 64 grams as stated here.

          .......i wonder why do people use cups as measuring in the first place.... it doesn't make sense!!!! every item has a different specific weight, so, "a cup being 227gr" is only a guideline... please try and weigh a cup of water and a cup of butter and a cup of flour... all different weights, and i've tried it.
          Nov. 13, 2014 6:16 am
          Thank you, this is so helpful!!
          Dec. 22, 2014 3:19 pm
          Baking is not like cooking as we all know. It is an exact science. That's why this conversion chart is so important. Some previous comments are from people confused as to why certain measured ingredients weigh differently every time. If measuring rather than using a scale, ingredients like flour compact differently giving you inaccurate amounts when attempting to make a recipe. Since I began weighing everything I have had great success, but more importantly recipes turn out the same each time. This chart is not intended only to help convert recipes written in grams but to assure you that you have the proper ratios of ingredients in your recipes. Hope this helps any confused bakers......Bake away!
          Feb. 4, 2015 3:45 pm
          a cup of water ?
          Feb. 11, 2015 7:56 am
          Plz tell me how many grams of 23/4 cup
          Mar. 3, 2015 9:44 am
          Hi there , I've been reading the posts about how many grams for different ingredients & this is what I would do. If a cup is 240 ml then find a cup of about this capacity and or a measuring jug and whatever the ingredient is weigh up to the 240 ml mark then you have the weight of a cup of that ingredient and from this you can work out fractions of a cup by dividing up the original weight. I would think this would be the most accurate way. Some variation will occur as it depends on the size of the ingredient used ( eg size of nuts or seeds) in the original recipe and how much it is compacted but i think the above method should be fairly good. I would be interested in your comments folks :-)
          Mar. 3, 2015 9:46 am
          To answer Jean's post above I cup of water would be 240 grams
