Measurement Reference Sheet
« on: October 15, 2006, 04:28 PM »
This is the anal guide to measurements & conversions.  It is not totally accurate - it is only a guide and intended for newbies and thos that need some near-accuracy,

Utensil   Metric   Imperial   Sith Bag (500 ml or ? Litre)
1 cup   250 ml   9 fl oz   ? bag
1/2 cup   125 ml   4 fl oz   ? bag
1/3 cup   80 ml   3 fl oz   
1/4 cup   60 ml   2 fl oz   
         
1 Tablespoon (Tbsp)   15 ml   ? fl oz   
1 Dessertspoon (Dsp)    10 ml   N/A   
1 Teaspoon (Tsp)                    5 ml   N/A   
         
Average mug                   230 ml   12 fl oz.    
         
Chef?s Oval ladle                   30 ml   1 fl oz   
Chef?s large cup ladle   360 ml   12 fl oz   
Chef?s medium cup ladle   120 ml   4 fl oz   

Update: Chef's Pinch equates roughly to 1/3 of a reaspoon.

Notes: because of the minute amounts compared, accuracy in metric to fluid ounces is not accurate.  Measuring equipment uses the nearest so that is what I have done.  I can?t be bothered with the math!

Darth roughly equates his bag to 500ml and to be honest a few millilitres either way doesn?t really matter.  You can work the rest out for yourselves

The Chef?s ladles I have used for comparison are my professional ones, as someone has already said it is impossible to compare all.  But it is my belief that all restaurants use equipment for professional suppliers so we are near the mark I think here.

Happy Cooking

Wow, just found this, many thanks for taking the time to put this info here Chilli Prawn, it really is useful information.  I am sure that had I spotted this earlier, then it would have saved me asking a few questions that you would have covered.  Thats the trouble when you are new to something, so much to search through and try!  ;D
