    It is going to depend on the ingredient - a cup of rocks weighs a great deal more than a cup of feathers.

    A US cup for liquids is app 240 ml.

    This is a useful thread on the GB forum, http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=104691

    Also if you are looking at a specific recipe you can use the unit converter button at the top of the recipe.

    It's actually better than what we do over here, especially for baking.

    I just went with an old style, non-digital, 5-lb. scale by Good Cook.

    That is similar to what I am replacing due to blunt force trauma with the floor over the holidays (that and the fact I also got a gift card around the same time... Coincidence???)

    I love the tare function and the conversion abilities of my digital scale. The cheap ones work just as well as the expensive ones, I have found (my current one cost a lot more than my previous one, which worked just as well as this one does).

    I just went into the kitchen to see who makes mine...the brand is Escali....it was inexpensive ($10.-) on sale, it is digital, has a tare feature (which I find invaluable), weighs in both ounces/pounds and kilograms/grams, and has a maximum weight of 10 pounds (which is more than adequate for my needs). Best part is it has a very small footprint so it lives on my kitchen counter where it is always available. icon_smile.gif
    (If I had to dig it out from a cabinet, I probably wouldn't use it.)

    I have a fancier Escali, which I love. It's preprogrammed with the density values for forty-odd common kitchen ingredients, so I can "weigh out" a cup of sugar, or flour, or oil, or what-have-you.
