Synopsis: Handy cooking measurements conversion references in chart form including bar drink measurements and oven temperature gas mark numbers. Our cooking conversion charts and tables also show American Standard to metric measurements, and include Volume and Weight measurements. Always use cup and spoon measures for dry and solid ingredients and a cooking measuring jug for liquid ingredients. All cooking equivalent measurements listed above are approximate and in most cases have been rounded up or down to the nearest whole number.

Main Digest

We have also included some basic bar drink measurements and oven temperature gas mark numbers, plus a few common imperial to metric conversions used in weights and measures when cooking. Precise measurements can be vital to perfect cooking and baking success. Always use cup and spoon measures for dry and solid ingredients and a cooking measuring jug for liquid ingredients. If you wish you can print out the cooking reference charts for future use.
