The process of measuring liquids can be confusing, especially when working with different units of measurement such as cups or liters.
In the kitchen, cups and liters are two of the most common units for measuring liquids, and knowing how to convert between them is essential to get the desired results in our recipes.
In this article, we present you with a conversion table from cups to liters, which will help you simplify your preparations and achieve perfect dishes.
Although many recipes come with cup measurements, many don't. In that case, you would have to do the conversion manually.

In this way, we can use this relationship to perform other, more specific conversions.
You can also consult other conversions such as the equivalence between flour and yeast or the amount of rice and broth per person

|2||0.5 (half a liter)|
One liter equals 4 cups.
So if you have a recipe that calls for 1 liter of water, you'll need to use 4 cups of water instead.
Half a liter is equal to 2 cups.
If a recipe calls for a pint of milk, simply use 2 cups of milk to get the right amount.
To convert milliliters to cups, we must take into account that 250 ml is equal to 1 cup.
So if you need to add 250 ml of oil to your recipe, that would be exactly one cup.
