US Measures to Metric Conversions

When you start converting from US measures to Metric, which most of the rest of the world uses. For the purposes of cooking, I am going to list what I feel is the best conversion. Nothing ever comes out exact when going from one standard to the other.

US Standard Metric Actual (ml) Metric Adjusted (ml)
1 cup 236.6 240
1/2 cup 118.3 120
1/3 cup 78.9 80
1/4 cup 59.2 60
1 tablespoon 14.79 15
1 teaspoon 4.93 5
1/2 teaspoon 2.465 2.5
1/4 teaspoon 1.2325 1.25
