UNITS- – -

 

To convert units, simply type in a measurement stated in any listed recipe. For example… You’d type in “1/2 tablespoon in teaspoons” and then click “Convert.” A new page will open up with your results.

Need a few examples?

• Pints in 1 quart
• 1 pound in ounces
• 6 ounces in grams
• 350F in C
• 16 oz in grams
• 1 pint in ounces

So, it’s: (measurement) + “in” + (measurement) = (converted measurement)

* Please note that the converter does not convert equivalents (i.e. 1 cup of sliced almonds in grams).
