My Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoon

I have been receiving many queries and emails about cup measurements. So I thought, I will post the measurements and the pictures of my measuring cups and spoons.

measuring cupsCup Measurements

1 cup = 250 ml
3/4 cup =175 ml
1/2 cup = 125 ml
1/3 cup = 75 ml
1/4 cup = 50 ml

Measuring spoonsSpoon Measurements

1/2 tbsp = 7.5 ml
1 tsp = 5 ml
1/2 tsp = 2.5 ml
