Dry Measures

All the measures are level, so when you have filled a cup or spoon, level it off with the edge of a knife. The scale below is the cook’s equivalent; it is not an exact conversion of metric to imperial measurement. To calculate the exact metric equivalent yourself, multiply ounces x 28.349523 to obtain grams, or divide 28.349523 grams to obtain ounces.

Metric = Imperial
g = grams = oz = ounces
kg = kilograms = lb = pound
