Cooks' Helpers

Introduction

When you're making that quick bread, can you swap a muffin tin for a loaf pan? How many tablespoons are in a cup? Our handy kitchen charts have all the answers. We designed three: baking pan substitutions, measuring equivalents, and candy-making temperatures. Turn each one into a refrigerator magnet or a laminated card. Either way, the information will be at your fingertips.

These charts can be made into magnets or laminated cards. You'll find the necessary materials at office-supply stores.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Download charts and print them onto magnetic sheets. Cut out with scissors.

  2. Step 2

    Color-photocopy or download and print charts onto heavyweight matte paper; cut out. Laminate according to package instructions; trim.

    This is the measurement conversion site I use... you can always make your own conversion list and tape it over the template.

    bklyndoll, one pound of flour can yield varying amounts in volume depending on factors such as: whether it it sifted or packed down, the type of flour, etc. If the recipe says a pound, better to use the weight measure than try to convert to volume (cups)

    I'm an American in Australia, and also need to be able to convert recipes from grams to ounces.

  • 20 Nov, 2010

    I would love to have a chart converting metric to pounds and ounces. We just moved to BC, Canada where things are some things measured in pounds (fruits and vegetables) and some in metric (meat, fish, spices, flour, etc.) . Took me a while to figure out how much fish or meat to buy for dinner.

  • 20 Nov, 2010

    Is there a chart to convert weight to dry measure, such as a pound of flour into cups, etc? I find recipes from England or Chile sometimes call for a pound of flour.

  • 27 Oct, 2010

    I made a set for myself several years ago. Now my kids both have their own apartments and I've given each of them a set.

  • 14 Sep, 2010

    Metric system too please Martha....you have a lot of Aussie fans too!!

    Wonderful idea! I made both magnets and laminated cards for myself and friends...they were a real hit....thank you!!!

  • 1 Mar, 2010

    I made enough copies for my friends. A wonderful addition to any kitchen.

  • 1 Mar, 2010

    They could also be kept inside the spice cupboard door!

  • 1 Mar, 2010

    Great idea to make for stocking stuffers for the kids next season.

    this is great. what a cute bridal shower gift add-on idea. It'd be great to have an emergency substitutions list too!

  • 1 Mar, 2010

    This is so handy, I have it printed out and hanging in the inside of my baking supply cupboard

    I live in Canada where many recipes are in metric and would LOVE it if someone could post (or Martha create) a version that is universally friendly!

  • 7 Mar, 2009

    Yes, please, Metric would be wonderful. Even better, could someone please put out conversion charts for the Imperial, Australian, Japanese and other International Cooking Measurements Comparisons all in one convenient place (magnet for like these would be the best). I love reading international cookbooks and magazines, but have trouble with the different systems.

  • 27 Feb, 2009

    Wonderful. These are hard to find as magnets. I will be making them for a whole lot of people, including myself.

  • 26 Feb, 2009

    Let's do some in metric please!

  • 26 Feb, 2009

    I love them .... laminated and on my fridge. Will be making sets for all my friends for Christmas.

  • 6 Feb, 2009

    this is very useful! I planned to give copies to my sister-in-laws..will print it and have it laminated...thanks for a wonderful idea!

  • 26 Jan, 2009

    I printed these out and laminated them, hot glued a magnet to the back and they are hanging on my fridge.. Love them!!

  • 24 Jan, 2009

    This is sooo cool. I love this! Thanks Martha

  • 24 Oct, 2008

    Wow, this is really useful. Thank you!

  • 18 Oct, 2008

    just printed it off....didn't know some of those measurements....now I do..thanks Martha!!!!

  • 17 Oct, 2008

    Excellent. I'm in the UK and have various recipes from US books - but no coversions to ounces/tablespoons - so this is really useful, thank you.

  • 3 Sep, 2008

    I made up 5 of these also to go along with the excellent Pie Chart template. Distributed sets of these to family and friends who love to bake. Excellent idea, thanks!

  • 15 Aug, 2008

    I love this. I am working on a family recipe file of my daughter. This will be a great item to add to the cook book.....

  • 15 Aug, 2008

    I love these to use for bookmarks, print out a set for each of your favorite cookbooks.

  • 7 Aug, 2008

    converting to/from metric would be a good use of these, too.

  • 29 Jul, 2008

    This is really great since I'm horable at conversions! It's also great to have when you're baking or something and you don't want to pull out a cookbook with floured hands! Great idea!

  • 11 Jul, 2008

    These templates are wonderfully helpful as well as fashionable! I printed them out on a cream/yellow-colored card stock for a slightly more "antique" look that matched my kitchen. Soon, I plan to laminate and add magnet backing that way.

  • 13 Jun, 2008

    Wow, These are GREAT! I Printed them on Matte Photo Paper as the instructions said, then made them with the magnet sheets....An Indispensible item in my kitchen! Great to just use as refigerator magnets, I always know I have these in recipe books.....but it took forever to find the right book and where they were. Now they are always just right there at a glance.....thanks again for another great USEFUL craft.
