Here is the information of my very handy magnet that I took from my Grandma's house. Hope it helps you!

Cup                Fluid OZ                    TBSP                               TSP                       Milliliters
1 Cup  is equal to 8oz        or           16 Tbsp         or            48 tsp               or          237ml
3/4 Cup      or      6 oz        or           12 Tbsp         or            36 tsp               or          177ml
2/3 Cup      or      5 oz        or           11 Tbsp         or            32tsp                or          158ml
1/2 Cup      or      4 oz        or             8 Tbsp         or            24 tsp               or          118ml
1/3 cup       or      3oz         or             5Tbsp          or            16tsp                or            79ml
1/4 cup      or      2 oz        or             4Tbsp          or            12tsp                or            59ml
1/8 cup      or       1 oz       or              2Tbsp          or              6tsp                or            30ml
1/16 cup    or      .5oz        or              1Tbsp          or              3tsp                or            15ml

 Cutting things in half:

1 cup in half is 1/2cup
3/4 cup in half is 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons
2/3 cup  in half 1/3 cup
1/2 cup in half is 1/4 cup
1/3 cup in half is 2 1/2 tablespoons
1/4 cup in half is 2 tablespoons

Tablespoons in half:
1 Teaspoon in half is 1/2 teaspoon
1/2 Teaspoon in half is 1/4 teaspoon
1/4 Teaspoon in half is 1/8 teaspoon (measure 1/4 and take out half) like this:

Some from the one side fell into the empty side, but it's still half. Now, If you at anytime said to yourself, " 1/4 plus 1/4 is 1/8" I will officially begin to worry about society.


  1. Hey! I know I'm late to the game here, but I'm just poking around your blog (love it btw!) and wanted to say that I totally bought a magnet with the conversions on it from Williams Cutlery on Camden and Union just a couple weeks ago! I've got it right on my fridge, next to my hanging metal measuring spoons (that I glued magnets to, since my stove is next to my fridge). Thanks for the halfing measurments though, I always seem to have trouble with that! lol

  2. LOL It comes in SO handy!!!! I took that magnet from my grandma's when she quit baking. It's my baking friend (aside from Pascal)
