Easy FREE Printable Kitchen Conversion Chart
I really love connecting with people worldwide through cooking and baking. Many people visit my website from all over the world and I'm often asked to include conversions in each recipe. That isn't a feasible solution to include on every recipe so I wanted to provide a free printable chart that you can keep handy in your own kitchen to reference for conversions.

I also have a kitchen chart for Common Baking Substitutions that you can also reference in those moments you're short on a specific ingredient and find yourself smack in the middle of a cooking project.
Basic Kitchen Tools You'll Need:
- Measuring cups to measure dry ingredients. When measuring flour, never scoop the entire cup into the flour always spoon into the cup and level. When scooping flour, it becomes compacted and can make baked goods dry.
- Measuring cups for liquid ingredients - Glass or plastic cups typically come in a 1, 2, 3 and 4 cup sizes with a handle and spout for pouring. You can also find measuring sets which include sizes from ¼ cup to 1 ½ cups. Super sized measuring cups are also a thing, but not likely something you would need for the average size family.
- Measuring spoons - Basic sets using include sizes from ⅛ teaspoon, ¼ teaspoon, ½ teaspoon, 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon. Some sets are more detailed and include more sizes and at times they'll include a 2 tablespoon measuring spoon. It's helpful to have a variety of sizes which makes measuring ingredients for cooking and baking more accurate.
- A Kitchen Scale - Some bakers prefer to measure and weigh ingredients for precise baking. In that instance, a kitchen scale comes in handy.
- Please note: I've been an avid baker for many years and have always measured my ingredients for cakes, muffins, cookes, pies and bread without weighing them on a scale with great success. It's not imperative to have a kitchen scale to be a successful baker.
- I typically spell out things in the narrative of the recipes on my website. That said, in the recipe card itself you may see the following measuring abbreviations in the recipes on my site from time to time. I make an effort to be consistent across the board but I just wanted to mention as this can vary from website to website:
- Tbsp = tablespoon
- tsp = teaspoon
- oz = ounce
- C = cup ( I most often just spell it out)
- P = pint (2 cups)
- QT = quart (4 cups)
- lb or LB = pound
Print this Kitchen Conversion Chart and laminate it then keep it posted somewhere in your kitchen. You may also opt to mount it on the inside of a cabinet door so it's available to reference lickity split.
