WHY DO YOU NEED A KITCHEN CONVERSION CHART?
Cooking and baking can be a lot of fun. Especially when you find a new recipe that you can’t wait to try!
However, in order to cook like a pro, it’s important that you measure your ingredients correctly. Especially when baking!
A kitchen conversion chart will help ensure that you get the exact measurements so the recipe turns out exactly as it should.
Another reason to use a kitchen conversion chart is because when you’re dealing with a complicated recipe with a bunch of exact measurements, cooking can feel like a math equation. Perhaps you need to halve a recipe because the full amount would be too much. Or maybe you want to double a recipe so you can have extra to freeze. But it’s time consuming and distracting when you have to do all that cooking math off the top of your head!
Using a kitchen conversion chart will save you from having to do that math which in turn saves you time.
With this free printable kitchen conversion chart you’ll be able to half, double, triple, even quadruple recipes with no worries at all.
Whether you’re cooking a dish from scratch or trying to make changes to an existing recipe, a kitchen conversion chart makes cooking much easier and more enjoyable because it helps eliminate mistakes and simplifies recipes. Plus, it saves you time.
FAVORITE KITCHEN MEASURING TOOLS
Speaking of cooking and baking, and before we get to how to download this conversion chart, I want to share some of my favorite kitchen tools that I use daily.
These tools make cooking and baking SO much easier.
And once you add in the kitchen measurements conversion chart, you’ll have all the tools you need in your kitchen arsenal to cook or bake up a storm!
- Measuring Spoons – Most measuring spoon sets come with at least 4 spoons including: ¼ tsp, ½ tsp, 1 tsp, and 1 Tbsp. Others come with additional spoons (for example, sizes ⅛ tsp and ½ Tbsp.). I love this set of measuring spoons as it comes with 7 stainless steel spoons that won’t rust. These spoons are also magnetic so you don’t have to mess with clipping them together. Best of all, they’re dual sided with an oval side that easily fits into spice jars, and a round side that is perfect for measuring liquids.
- Liquid Measuring Cups – These measuring cups usually come in 2- or 4-cup sizes, and you can measure in ounces, quarts, and milliliters. They will also have a handle, and are used for measuring liquids like water, milk, or honey. This Pyrex 2-cup measuring cup is my favorite. I’ve had it forever and always use it. It’s made of glass, so it doesn’t stain and it is microwave/dishwasher safe.
- Dry Measuring Cups – Most dry measuring cup sets are made from plastic or metal and come with 4 cup sizes including: 1 cup, ½ cup, ⅓ cup, and ¼ cup. Other sets will break it down even further and include: 1 cup, ¾ cup, ⅔ cup, ½ cup, ⅓ cup, ¼ cup, ⅛ cup. These are used for dry ingredients including flour, sugar, corn meal, etc.
- Kitchen Scale – a kitchen scale is the best, most guaranteed way to get the correct weight a recipe is calling for (especially when baking). And as I mentioned above, baked goods perform best when you use the exact ingredient amounts.
COMMON UNITS OF MEASURMENT
Something else that can help make cooking and baking a lot easier is being familiar with the common units of measurement. If it’s been a while since you’ve been in school, or you are just getting started cooking, you may not remember or know the most common abbreviations for units of measurement. No worries though. Here’s a quick breakdown.
And remember, the more you cook, the more familiar you will become with them.
|tsp. (with a lowercase t.)||t easpoon|
|Tbsp. (may also see it as tbsp., T. TB., Tbl. Tbs.)||tablespoon|
|fl oz||fluid ounce|

WHERE TO KEEP YOUR KITCHEN CONVERSION CHART
This printable kitchen conversion chart is so handy, you’re going to want to keep it somewhere close by. But first, in order to make sure it lasts a long time, I recommend first laminating it. Then you should place it somewhere easy to reach or see.
For example, I like to keep mine taped to the inside of my kitchen spice cabinet next to the stove. This way it’s out of the way, but still easy to see with the simple pull of a knob.
You could also keep the conversion chart on the side of the fridge, in your recipe binder, or in a cookbook. Heck, you could even frame it and hang it on your wall so it becomes part of your kitchen decor (yep, it’s that cute, lol!) 🙂
Wherever you choose to keep it, with this printable kitchen conversion chart, you’ll be a recipe-converting rock star!
