This free online cooking measurement conversions calculator will scale a recipe's ingredients using any one of three recipe conversion options.
You can either enter an alternate number of servings, or you can select from a preset scaling menu (quarter, half, double, etc.), or you can manually enter the conversion factor.
Plus, unlike other online recipe converters, this converter will provide you with a printer friendly version so you can print out the completed conversion -- which will include a column containing the original unit quantities and a column containing the the converted unit quantities.
The following recipe conversions chart shows some of the common recipe conversions in case you would like to convert an ingredient manually.
|Pinch||=||1/16 Teaspoon (tsp)|
|3 Teaspoons||=||1 Tablespoon (tbsp)|
|1 Tablespoon||=||1/2 Fluid Ounce (fl oz)|
|8 Fluid Ounces||=||1 Cup|
|2 Cups||=||1 Pint (pt)|
|2 Pints||=||1 Quart (qt)|
|4 Quarts||=||1 Gallon (gal)|
|16 Dry Ounces||=||1 Pound (lb)|
On September 3, 2013, I received the following email from the author of a new cookbook series:
I have seen a lot, and I mean A LOT of cooking conversion sites out there, but this one is by far the best. I am using it in a lot of cookbooks I am writing and will give you full credit on your help! Thanks again for making my life easier." -- Kristi Ambrose
Well, little did I know the first book in her series would be available on Amazon the following month. And sure enough, there it was ... an entire paragraph devoted to referencing the calculator. How cool is that?!
Of course, I felt compelled to return the favor, so, here you go Kristi ...
With that, let's use the Recipe Conversion Calculator to calculate cooking measurement conversions when scaling a recipe from one number of servings to another.
