What’s the Difference Between Liquid and Dry Measurements

When trying to determine pints into cups, it is important to know if you are using dry or liquid ingredients.

When measuring liquids, you want the meniscus to touch the measurement mark. The meniscus refers to the bottom of the curved surface line of the liquid.

If you measure liquids in a dry cup instead of a liquid cup, it’s easy to overfill the cups… Thus resulting in an incorrect measurement.

Converting Liquid Cups to Pints

The proper way to use liquid or wet measuring cups is to set a clear liquid measuring cup flat on the counter.
