Dimensions & weights: converting quantities made easy

When cooking - and much more importantly when baking - it often depends on the exact amount of ingredients so that the recipe works perfectly and tastes right.

Therefore, the ingredients should be weighed carefully before cooking and baking. This works best with a (digital) kitchen scale or with the measuring cup, which can be used to weigh liquids and basic ingredients such as flour, sugar or semolina.

We have summarized for you how you can easily convert quantities and what is behind foreign quantities so that nothing can go wrong with cooking and baking.
