These Fluid Ounce Conversion Charts reduce the need to try to figure out differing modes of fluid ounces.  Liquid ounces or fluid ounces do not weigh the same as dry ounces.  The fluid ounce conversion charts below give you the amounts of fluid ounces in a number of forms.  It is important to note these conversions and measurements are as used in America.  Those used in the UK are different.  There a pint is equal to 5 cups or 20 fluid ounces.  

Wet MeasuresCups to Ounces to Pints and Quarts – Wet measures usually have a lip for pouring along with a recessed top measure to help avoid spilling.  They can come in glass, plastic or metal.  Using glass or plastic makes it easier to see the measurement.

Measuring spoonsTABLESPOON TO FLUID OUNCE and METRIC CONVERSION

Measuring spoons come in metal or plastic although I have seen them in ceramic also.  The normal four are 1/4, 1/2, and 1 teaspoon along with 1 tablespoon.  Recently a pinch, 1/3 and 3/4 teaspoons have become available.

    Good morning Helen

    Need to highlight the differences between a USA fluid ounce…and a UK one.
    UK has 10 fluid ounces to a half pint…so 20 fluid ounces to a pint.

    For your myriad overseas readers..this makes a difference….

    Stay safe, well and above all…happy.

        Hi Vera: That is by weight. You can assume than any dry ingredient is going to be by weight. Any liquid ingredient will be using a liquid cup measurement such as 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup etc. It is rather confusing. All of my recipes specify weights of dry ingredients but use cups for wet ingredients. Hope this helps.

      Oh dear, Janet. What a bag of worms these different measurements are. The conversion charts on the internet are hugely confusing.
      I know someone to ask about making a UK chart for me. Thanks. I was happy until this came up!!! Will be again as soon as I clear this up.
