Conversion Table of Measurements for Liquid Ingredients

Conversion charts for cooking…  using  metric  measurements (grams, kilograms, etc for weight, I mean mass and  milimeters, centiliters, liters etc. for volume) over imperial  measurements (teaspoon, tablespoon, cups, etc) specially for those who are into baking (which is an exact science so metric measurements must be  observed!).

Here’s an easy way of converting U.S. Measurements to metric measurement for specific  liquid ingredients.  That is from a plain water to cooking oils. Help yourself.  For Dry Ingredients please  check out Conversion Table of Measurements for Dry Ingredients

You can also do your conversion online through http://www.convert-me.com
