Hi,

Is this by weight on a set of scales or a liquid measurement of cups or a jug? or by fl.ozs?

5 fl. oz is I gill or 1/4 of a UK pint and 6 fluid ounces is about 180 mls.

What ingredient are you trying to measure - oil? but what other ingredients are there in the recipe as these may be critical. It would help if you told us what you are trying to make - a cake, mayonnaise, muffins, carrot cake etc?

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Archiduc

6 oz by weight is 6 oz. - or about 170 grams.

By volume:

6 oz (UK liquid) = 0.75 cup Liquid (Canada), 0.68 cup (metric), 0.72 cup (US)
6 oz (US liquid) = 0.78 cup Liquid (Canada), 0.71 cup (metric), 0.75 cup (US)

6 oz (UK liquid) = 170.5 ml
6 oz (US liquid) = 177 ml

2 tablespoons are an ounce or real close

I got a little measuring glass at Walmart that comes in real handy. Has teaspoons, tablespoons and ounces, etc. marked on it.

Hi Michael,

That is a very useful breakdown of different measurements by country which I`m sure will be useful to all posters. Conversions between dry and liquid ingredients between USA/Canadian and UK recipes is a minefield! and then there are the Australian measures to consider!

Many thanks,
Archiduc
