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.

How many times have you tried to prepare a recipe only to realize that it needs to be converted from grams to teaspoons? Then after all of that the oven temperature is listed in centigrade not Fahrenheit. Do you need to add 10 milliliters of vanilla to a cake batter? If you're math-challenged, don't worry goodcooking.com is here to help!

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.
