### 925 grams equivalent in how many cups

Grams are a weight measurement, but cups are a volume measurement. There is no direct equivalent. To convert from weight to volume, you will need a conversion factor determined by the material's density.

### Are measuring spoons only made of plastic?

No, even tho the most common material for measuring spoons is indeed plastic, there are also companies that produce them in metal and other materials. However the plastic is the easiest kind to find in stores

### Is it better to buy a simple one-piece measuring cup or a set?

Usually sets of measuring cups come in whole cups, half and one third of a cup. This way you can use the three measuring cups for different ingredients at once. However it is a three-pieces set, which means it occupies more space. Therefore it depends on your necessities: if you need a single object that you can easily store and that allows you to measure different quantities with just one cup than the simple measuring cup is better for you. If, however, you'd rather measure multiple substances at once and don't have a storage issue than the set might be more useful for you.

### 1 cup is to how many grams?

A cup is a measure of volume, but a gram is a measure of mass.

Depending on the density of the material you are going to have in the cup, the weight in grams of the material will vary. For example, if you fill the cup with lead, the cup will weigh much more than if you fill with feathers.
This question would be similar to asking how much does a 6 foot person weigh. It depends on the person of course. A cup of water will weigh more than a cup of flour.

Examples:

Granulated sugar: 1 cup = 200 grams
Brown sugar: 1 cup, packed = 220 grams
Sifted white flour: 1 cup = 125 grams
White rice, uncooked: 1 cup = 185 grams

### How much is 60g in cups

Depends on what you are measuring 60 g of water will be more that 60 g of lead.

Grams are a unit of weight

Cups are a unit of volume

Denisty is the relationship between the two

Water weighs 1 gram per cubic centimeter = 1g/1cc

There are 236.6 (cc) cubic centimeters in a cup.

So for 60 grams of water:

1 gram = 1 (cc) cubic centimeter (Water Only)

1 cup = 236.6 (cc) cubic centimeters (Water Only)

1 cup/236.6 cubic centimeter * 60 cubic centimeters = 60(cc)/236.6 (cc) = 0.25 Cups of water

If the material you are comparing is different then you will need to look up the density and apply the same relationships.

### What is the difference between ml and grams. My

one is for measuring liquids (ml) and one is for measuring solids or dry materials (gms). A reference 237 ml is equal to 1 cup which should work for cottage cheese.

### I lost the measuring cup. Can I use a regular measuring cup? If so, what amount would I use? For 1 cup, 2 cups,or 3 cups? I'm sure there is a solution. Thanks.

1 cup of rice in the rival cup does NOT equal 1 cup of rice in a regular measuring cup. I lost mine too and I've found that using 3/4 cup of a regular measuring cup works with the lines on the inside of the pot

### Measurements for Rice

Most of my experience with the rice cookers is that they require a japanese rice Cup which is different than the japanese regular cup. makes a whole lot of not sense but i found a replacement cup at one of the local Japanese Markets if you had to you could use regular measuring cup and use the 160ml for your measure. also the cup has a "Inomata" on it so maybe the web can help you
