Common Kitchen Measurements – Cheat Sheet – Free Printable

This common kitchen measurements cheat sheet helps to when you need to do conversions.

I love cheat sheets, especially in the kitchen. They are fun to print out in full size and hang on the back of a cabinet door for easy reference.

This common kitchen measurements cheat sheet comes in so handy when you are cooking.

As long as I have been cooking, I can never seem to remember how to convert some measurements. It took me FOREVER to remember that 2 tablespoons is one half of a quarter cup! All those fractions!!

My husband and I are often the only ones that I am cooking for and many recipes are made for 4-6 people. That means modifying them when I cook.

Sometimes, this is easy and other times, it seems as though I need a calculator in my kitchen.

This free printable has most of the common kitchen measurements in one handy chart. Just a quick glance and your conversion is done for you! How easy is that?

There are lots of ways to use this cheat sheet in the kitchen. You can print it out on glossy photo paper and hang it in an 8 1/2 x 11″ size on the inside of a cupboard door.

When cooking, just flip open the door and there are your conversions! (See more space saving kitchen ideas for small kitchens here.)

Another way to use this is as a cook book book mark. Print it out in a 4 x 6″ size, add some ribbon, and place it in your favorite cook book for easy reference.

Another idea is to frame it in the colors of your kitchen and use it as a decoration on your kitchen counter.

And here is a fun idea! I recently used it as a gift tag in a fun kitchen gift basket that I made for my mother who loves to cook. It was both decorative in the basket and useful for later!
