Measurement and conversion chart

Measurement and conversion chart

We try to include each metric as clear as possible in our recipes. We use the metric system because we live in Europe. A lot of our visitors use the imperial system. People from America usually measure ingredients by volume, while others measure by weight

We've put up a measurement and conversion overview, to make conversion between these two worlds easier. Let us know if you think something is missing from this overview.
