Easy conversion of measurements directly in Google

I guess that I’m not the only one confused by all different measurements when reading recipes online. Yesterday Fredrik showed me how to easily convert measurements directly in Google.

For exampe just write 1 deciliter in cups, 500 grams in ounces, 6 cups in litres or what ever you want to convert, directly in the google search box.

    Yes, but you still have to be careful as there are differences between metric, imperial & US cups. I think it is strange to use a liquid measurement for items that are better measured as a weight (eg dl vs gm to measure flour).

    Pene: Yes, you should be very careful when converting.

    Of course weight (grams) are better for exact measurements, but in Sweden traditionally deciliters are used in recipes since ages probably because it’s simple and it’s very common to have at home. It’s just like using US cups for flour (for example). I prefer weighting, but many recipes still use deciliters as most people have those measures at home, just as most people have cups measures in other countries or “glasses” which is very common in Poland.

    I’m in the U.S., and I follow several blogs from abroad, so, the Google conversion has come in very handy for me! So far, I’ve had great success with the conversion amounts given. It’s a very helpful tool! Have a great day!! :)

    I figured this out a while ago, I use it with distances etc too. It must be annoying for our American visitors to see grams everywhere in a recipe!

    I found the best thing to my friend’s birthday… It’s really hard to find cool and still unique.
    So today I saw this thing from ZTARLET on facebook where you can name a real star in heaven and have the certificate and a teddy bear sent to you and pay it by a single SMS. So awesome :)

    I saw that Casey Fronczek is offering fishing trips now down in south Florida. Does anybody have any input on these trips or has anyone been on one of these trips before?
