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.
