This Nifty Chart Will Help You With All The Teaspoon, Tablespoon And Other Cooking Conversions You Need

Ever forget how many tablespoons are in 1/2 cup?

Nobody likes stopping all their cooking momentum to search measurements on Google, especially when they’re covered in flour. But unless you’ve memorized exactly how many tablespoons equal 1/4 cup—it’s often a necessary evil.

Well, now you can skip that kitchen nightmare! Thanks to the website tbsp. (Tablespoon.com), you can now look at a nifty chart instead of trying to whisk and ask Siri for help at the same time.

The chart starts by showing precisely how many teaspoons and tablespoons it takes to make 1/16 cup and incrementally increases all the way to making an entire cup—which would equal 16 tablespoons (in case you’re keeping track).

Thankfully, tbsp.’s helpful kitchen tools don’t stop there. It also has a chart that details ounce conversions. It’ll walk you through how to convert ounces to tablespoons or cups—for those moments when you only have one kind of measuring device handy.
