KITCHEN CONVERSION CHART
Remember that dry ingredients and liquid ingredients should be used differently when measuring. Measuring cups and spoon sets are generally intended for dry ingredients, while liquid measuring cups are (obviously) intended for liquid ingredients. Using the right measuring tools will ensure exact measurements.
A kitchen scale can be used when ingredients need to be weighed instead of measured by cups. This is ideal for more exact recipes, or when using recipes that measure in grams.
To know what 1 cup equals is helpful because even when lacking of kitchen measuring tools, most of us have a 1 cup measurement. Plus it can be useful for making cooking conversions when trying to halve or double the recipes.
