How can we make Foodily better for you?

Convert metric to U.S. measurements and vice versa

Some recipes use grams instead of cups. It would be great to click on a button and have it automagically generate the user's preferred measurement system.

        Ah, I just noticed this is open for 2 years! Un-liking and moving on.

        Robert, 1 Cup is always 8 oz in an American recipe. So measured in volume it is a quarter of a liter, since a liter is like a quart, it is 32 oz to the quart. I am an American living in France so I always have a conversion program loaded when I am cooking. I hope this helps.

        Thanks Colleen for making that request. I think Foodily is a great site but for the rest of us outside the USA, well, cups come in so many different sizes that the recipes are meaningless!! Espresso coffee cup?? Teacup?? Also, this is very easy to do so why not hurry up Foodily and do it ?

        I agree! Apart from the fun I can have with this site myself, it would be great to share this with students at our college who do work on nutrition and catering!
