Grams, cups, glasses, bowls & Co..

Hi there!

Besides the very extensive Google conversion tool on the left of the page, you might print this page and keep itin your kitchen.


You could as well bookmark this website to convert any cup measurement to weight. I find it very practical.

I hope it helps!

V- Moroccan measuring unit

We do measure using grams and liters. However, sometimes you might encounter "kass" in reference to a glass and "zlafa" in reference to a bowl. Obviously these two differ from a kitchen to another.

In Morocco, the glass used to measure the ingredient is a called "El 'enba" because of the grape engraved in it ('enba means grape in Arabic). Almost everyone in Morocco has this sort of glass to serve Moroccan tea. It comes in small and regular.


Here is the approximate volume one can convert to, as I use it in my kitchen

1 -When the bowl is the unit of measurement, usually it will be a leveled one

  • 1 bowl of liquid = 350 ml
  • 1 bowl of white flour or equivalent = 250 gr
  • 1 bowl of fine semolina = 300 gr

2- When the regular glass (leveled and compacted) is the mean of measurement:

  • 1 glass of fine sugar: 160 g 
  • 1 glass of coarse semolina (medium) or coarse sugar: 140g
  • 1 glass of liquid: 185 ml
  • 1 glass of white flour/fine semolina flour: 120g 

A regular glass
