Sharing is caring!

In this article, we dive into how many cups are in a pint, quart and gallon and all the other basic kitchen conversion measurements you need to know. We'll also explain conversions from the US system to the metric system.

Have you ever found yourself super excited to try out a new recipe only to discover upon starting that all the measurements are in metric system units?

Or, you simply can't recall the basic kitchen measurement conversions for the US system that you learned in school? Yeah, me too.

When it comes to baking and cooking, you will mostly be working with US measurements and conversions within the metric units of grams, kilograms, and liters. 

Cups to Pints, Quarts, Gallons

Let's break it down and make it easy for you.

  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts, 8 pints, 16 cups, 128 ounces, and 3.8 liters.
  • 1 quart = There are 2 pints, 4 cups, 32 ounces, or 950 ml in 1 quart. 1 quart is 1/4 a gallon.
  • 1 pint = 2 cups, 16 ounces, or 480 ml. 1 pint is 1/2 a quart.
  • 1 cup = 16 tablespoons, 8 ounces, or 240 ml.
  • 3/4 cup = 12 tablespoons, 6 ounces, or 180 ml.
  • 1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons, 4 ounces, or 120 ml.
  • 1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons, 2 ounces, or 60 ml.
  • 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons or 30 ml.
  • 1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons, 1/2 ounce, or 15 ml.

Teaspoons and Tablespoons

Keep this chart handy to easily convert teaspoons and tablespoons. This comes in handy when cooking, accurately dispensing medicine for children, and so much more. Especially the teaspoon or tablespoon to ML.

  • 1 teaspoon (tsp) = 5 ml
  • 1 tablespoon (tbsp) = 3 teaspoons = 15 ml
  • 2 tablespoons = 1 ounce (1 fluid ounce) = 30 ml
  • 4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup = 60 ml
  • 5 tablespoons = 1/4 cup = 60 ml
  • 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon = 1/3 cup = 80 ml
  • 1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons = 120 ml
  • 1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 240 ml
  • 1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups
  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts = 16 cups

This is a handy resource to keep on hand when doubling recipes or converting recipes from metric systems to the US system of measurements.

Pan Sizes

You will often see a recipe call for a specific pan size. If you are using a US cookbook, those pan sizes will be in US measurements. For everything else, you'll need to be familiar with metric system pan measurements. See below for conversions from inches to centimeters for common pan sizes:

  • 4 inch = 10 centimeter
  • 6 inch = 15 centimeter
  • 8 inch = 20 centimeter
  • 9 inch = 23 centimeter
  • 10 inch = 25 centimeter
  • 11 inch = 28 centimeter
  • 12 inch = 30 centimeter
  • 13 inch = 33 centimeter
  • 16 inch = 40 centimeter
  • 18 inch = 45 centimeter

Fahrenheit to Celsius

  • 475F = 240C
  • 450F = 230C
  • 425F = 220C
  • 400F = 200C
  • 375F = 190C
  • 350F = 180C
  • 325F = 165C
  • 300F = 150C
  • 275F = 140C
  • 250F = 125C
  • 225F = 110C

Celsius to Fahrenheit

  • 240C = 475F
  • 230C = 450F
  • 220C = 425F
  • 200C = 400F
  • 190C = 375F
  • 180C = 350F
  • 165C = 325F
  • 150C = 300F
  • 140C = 275F
  • 125C = 250F
  • 110C = 225F

Convert Liquid Ounces

You can quickly convert liquid ounces to tablespoons by multiplying the ounces by 2. To find the teaspoons in ounces, multiply the number of ounces by 6.

A few other more common fluid ounce conversions you might need:

  • 1/4 cup equals 2 fluid ounces.
  • 1/2 cup equals 4 fluid ounces.
  • 1 cup equals 8 fluid ounces.
  • 2 cups are equal to 16 fluid ounces.
  • 16 ounces in a pint.
  • 32 ounces in a quart.
  • 34 ounces in 1 liter.
  • 128 ounces in a gallon.

Kitchen Scales

Owning a digital kitchen scale equipped with both US and metric system unit readouts will often save you time. If you have a kitchen scale, there will be no need for conversion between the USCS and the metric system. 

For example, you have an awesome recipe for Nutella cookies, but all the measurements are in the metric system.

Instead of converting each of these amounts into the USCS, I can simply pull out my kitchen scale. Using my scale, I can measure all kinds of ingredients in grams and liters! While I don't need it to figure out how many cups in pints and so on, it is useful in so many ways.

For this reason alone, I believe a kitchen scale to be an excellent investment.
