measuring spoons/cups in oz

Recommended Posts

This a good question that was given to me, and I simply do not have an answer, as I always converted to teaspoons.  1 oz = 6 tsp.

 

Is there ounce measuring cups/spoons?  Any brand you can recommend?

I'm pretty sure that 2T = 1/8 c  (discovered by pouring from one measuring device to another) :thumbs: 

 

Found some pics I had saved. Hope these help.

:hi: Sarah, 

 

I found several measuring cups and spoons on-line... Amazon, WallMart, Wayfarer, Overstock, etc. all seem to have various options available.

 

 I have a 4 cup Pyrex measure, that is marked in ounces.

Thank you ladies. 

 

I see I was not clear.  What the questioner wants is one ounce and down.  All the cups I have seen start at 2 ounces.

 

And let me toss this one into the mix.  3 tsp = 2 tbsp. 

 

Another toss-in.  I would bet most of you do 'heaping' when you use such spoons, etc.  Spoons are supposed to be 'level'.  :busted:

 

Yet another toss-in.  Don't confuse American and Imperial (England) measurements.  :whistling:

 

I found one *very* cheap looking Asian-ring set of four spoons, 2-1-1/2-1/4 oz.  (or 12tbsp/6tbsp/3tbsp/4.5 tsp) Pass.  Cheap.

I measure level .....cuz I was in 4H for most of my childhood.  Never took the "required" Home Ec cuz I had all that to the "enth degree"!

 

Question, Sarah.  Isn't "ounces" a measurement of weight and not volume?   And therefore an ounce of feathers and an ounce of gold would have different volume....different sizes to contain them.

3 tsp = ONE Tbsp

 

Most shot glasses are 1 oz (unless it's a "jigger." I have no idea what the measurement is in a jigger.)

 

The chart above (with the milk bottles in it) says that 2 Tbs = 1 fluid oz

Sounds like bar measurements might be your solution. :D

I see I was not clear again.  'fluid' ounces.  The 'fluid' is understood, and dropped in a lot of tables and recipes.  Sorry,

Thank you ladies.   My man, Amos, gave a solution to the questioner that was liked.  'Graduated cylinders'...  Think test tube, with molded on stand, marked, and made of pyrex or borosilicate.  But $$$
