Product Description

Product Description

Tired of racking your brain, trying to remember how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon or ounces in a cup? You need Amco's Equivalents Magnet, which easily converts cups, fluid ounces, tablespoons, teaspoons and milliliters. It's great for use when doubling or halving recipes, working from cookbooks that use a different volume measuring system (mililiter vs. cups, for example) or when you simply don't have enough measuring utensils at hand. These magnets are informative, functional, and they're great for holding your shopping list on the fridge, too!

This cooking measurements conversion table cum magnet is a great addition to your refrigerator-door magnet collection. The brushed stainless-steel magnet lists equivalents for cups, ounces, tablespoons, teaspoons, and milliliters in easy-to-read bold black letters. Just a glance tells you that 2/3 cup is 32 teaspoons or 5 ounces. Remember that the conversion for ounces is for fluid ounces, not scale-weight ounces. --Brooke Van Peski

The measurement conversions are incorrect. I had to return it.
Check the tablespoon column, for instance.

The magnet is very strong, and easy to read. The only problem is 3 oz does not equal 79 ml (89), and 5 oz does not equal 158 ml (148). Pretty big mistake when conversion is your only purpose.

If you substitute "5.33" for 5oz and "2.67" for 3oz, you will find all other conversions to be accurate.

The reason some of the conversions aren't correct is because of the rounding involved when the maker converted. The problem isn't that 5oz doesn't equal 158ml, it is that 2/3C does not equal 5oz; 2/3C is 5.33 oz. However, 2/3C still equals 158ml. The same is true of the other incorrect conversion: the problem is that 1/3C equals 2.67oz and not 3oz, which translates to the rest of the conversions.

You're cooking with your 11-year-old, who's pretty skilled at math, but conversions are beyond what's been taught, at least in practical application. The Amco measuring equivalent chart allows you to keep those elusive math solutions at eye-level. It creates a great opportunity to "cook and learn"...get the job done, and while you're both chewing on those wonderful cookies that great kid just created, you can teach the math that relates to what just happened. If you want your child, as I do, to know why math and science will always be important in their lives, this little magnetic tool on the refrigerator will give you the chance prove your point! Go for it.

It always seems that I need to look up a recipe equivalent while I'm elbows deep in some dish I am making. This little magnet is great, I no longer have to try and Google on my tablet with dirty hands or stop what I'm doing to go look it up. Very handy.

A few reviewers commented on the conversions being wrong, so I looked into it too. At first I agreed, but what it seems the magnet is doing is comparing each subsequent column with the cup measurement. In other words it's always the cup to XX conversion rate. It's not the ounce to ml, or tbl, or tsp. When you run the numbers through the Google volume converter that way, it works out. I'll be the first to admit, it's confusing and definitely not clear.

Order other brands if they have the same info.
The item would be a five star if they did not GLUE it to the cardboard envelope.
Not sure what that is all about. It took a while to clean off and I still did not get all of it. I used hot water and WD40

This extra strong magnet is not something you think you would use until you have it on your fridge. I find myself referencing it on a regular basis as I scale down recipes to make them more manageable for a single person.
