How To Use

We've provide a chart (right side of this page) that displays basic gram to cup equivalents.  Our converter is based on a conversion of 229.92 grams per cup. You can locate a item on the chart that is similar to what you need to weigh and decide if you need to make any adjustments

Example, a teaspoon of baking powder does not weigh the same as a teaspoon of peanut butter.  This calculator will simply give you an approximate measurement.

When accuracy is imperative you should use our highly-accurate ingredient based calculator.

About Recipe Gram Conversions
This tool is used for cooking and recipe conversions. When you convert from grams or ounces (weight) to teaspoons, tablespoons or cups (volume), you are converting from a weight to a volume. This simple calculation may not be highly accurate in many cases. This should not be used for measuring medicine or any form of critical science. Increasingly in the U.S. we encounter foods weighed in "grams" and we still live in a "teaspoons and measuring cup" country. Sometimes we just need an estimated amount for cooking.
