Conversion of grams to milliliters
If you do not have access to a scale, but only a measuring cup, you can measure the ingredients out. But the volume depends on what ingredient it is. Our calculator can not only find the desired volume but also convert the mass into simple mug, spoon or teaspoon measurements. Weighing without a scale, otherwise know as mug and spoon conversions is significantly faster.
The only disadvantage tends to be that a mugs or spoons are not a standardized size so tend to be of different sizes.
The calculators are therefore set to these approximate sizes:
- Mug - volume 250 ml
- Tablespoon - volume 15 ml (level filled spoon not heaped)
- Teaspoon - volume 5 ml (level filled spoon not heaped)
