Imperial (U.K.) Units and Their Equivalents

It is generally not a good idea to scale a recipe up or down by more than 3 or 4 times. All measurements presented on this page are in Imperial (U.K.) units.

Weight

The Imperial system uses the same units of weight as the U.S. system. Do not confuse the ounce of weight with the fluid ounce, because they are not the same; there is no standard conversion between weight and volume unless you know the density of the ingredient.

16 ounces = 1 pound

Both Imperial and U.S. units of length are identical.
