In cooking and baking, measurements are very important. There are a few common ones that are great to know by heart.
We do not notice the weight of Packets which we buy in the daily routine. Pounds and Kilograms are two important weight units. Some companies print the Pounds weight of their product and some in Kilos. You convert that weight from Pounds to Kilograms and Vice Versa.
What is the ratio of teaspoons to tablespoons?
One tablespoon is the same as three teaspoons.
This is a useful measurement to learn, especially for measuring ingredients like leaveners, spices, like this sloppy joe spice mix, and oils. It saves you time in the kitchen as well.

How many teaspoons are in a tablespoon?
This post was written by Heather and was published on April 14, 2020.
I can't tell you how many times I've been in the kitchen and wanted to double or half a recipe, especially when it came to spice blends like this apple pie spice, and had to look up how to change the measurements on my phone or computer.
That's why I made this cheat sheet that you can print out. I put the sheet through a laminator and keep it in my kitchen so I can use it quickly.
More common changes to kitchens
Now that you know how to answer this common kitchen conversion question, here are some more that you might find useful.
What is the ratio of teaspoons to tablespoons? 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
What is 1/4 cup in tablespoons? 1/4 cup =4 tablespoons
How many tablespoons are in 1 oz? 1 oz = 2 tablespoons
How many ounces does a cup hold? 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces
What's the difference between Imperial and Metric?
When it comes to measuring, the United States, Liberia, and Myanmar all use the Imperial system. The metric system is used by the rest of the world.
One U.S. teaspoon is equal to 1/6 oz (4.94 mL), which is a little less than the 5 mL teaspoon used in metric systems.
One U.S. tablespoon equals 1/2 fluid oz (14.79 mL) and a metric tablespoon equals exactly 15 mL
There isn't much difference between them, so they can both be used for cooking.
Did you know that there is also something called a dessert spoon? This is a unit of measurement used in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. It is equal to 10 mL.
Are the same amounts of wet and dry ingredients used?
Yes, a cup, a tablespoon, and a teaspoon are all measured the same way. So that they don't spill, you should measure wet ingredients in a liquid measuring cup.
Fill the spoon or cup all the way to the top, and then use a knife or spoon to level it off.
One thing to keep in mind is that measuring dry ounces and wet ounces is not the same because it depends on how much the ingredient weighs.
How to write teaspoon and tablespoon in short form
When following recipes, you'll notice that measurements are often written in short forms.
Tablespoon is written "Tbsp" with a capital "T," while a teaspoon is written "tsp."
The best spoons and cups to measure with
I finally bought a new set of measuring cups and spoons when we moved last year. Since college, I had been using the same ones.
I found some really cool ones that stick together magnetically so you don't lose them and it's easy to store them. They come in black or these fun colours.
