Metric weight tables
« on: September 13, 2010, 11:25:39 AM »
I typically weight my ingredients to the nearest gram since it is more accurate than using ounces.  I've gotten tired of recalculating the weight for each recipe so I created a table that I can look up the weights for the nearest tenth of an ounce.  I've found this very helpful, so I'm posting this here.  I've included two table, one to convert to the nearest tenth of a gram and one to the nearest gram.  Since I sometime cut recipes in half, I've included a column for that as well.  The tables only go up to one pound, but you can easily add in another 454 grams for each additional pound.  I've printed the table and now use it as a bookmark.  Hope this helps.

Thanks so much for these weight tables. I also prefer to use grams - it just makes it easier. I can't tell you how many times I've run from kitchen to computer to convert from ounces to grams so your table is going to be taped inside my baking cupboard for easy use. :thumbup:
