  Kitchen Shelfware

March 20, 1998

Pop quiz: How many teaspoons go into a tablespoon? (No rummaging through the kitchen drawer to check!) The answer is three, but I wouldn't have known that were it not for the cooking-measurements calculator at the Internet Epicurean site exchange/calculator.index.html. This site tackles two simple functions: metric-English conversions and translations of the various oddball ratios in English measurements with simple pull-down menus to specify the current and desired units of volume, weight or temperature measurement (say, milligrams to ounces or cups to quarts).
