## What is a mililiter (ml)?

A milliliter is a volume measurement with the symbol of ml meaning, it is not measured by a weight scale but rather, by the size of the container it occupies.

The milliliter is the smaller unit of the standard liquid measurement of liters (or litres) where 1 liter = 1000ml.

This smaller unit is used to measure smaller everyday containers or quantities for ease such as liquid medicines, soda cans, oils, perfumes, toothpaste, etc.

## what is a measuring teaspoon?

For most people, a teaspoon (with the symbol tsp) is a small spoon found in a cutlery set that is used to eat with.

However, a measuring teaspoon is used in cooking and baking recipes. It measures the volume of both liquid and dry ingredients but not their weight.

Teaspoons are commonly used for measuring liquid drug prescriptions and other small quantity ingredients but not much beyond that.

## types of teaspoons?

All teaspoons are not made equal even if they are measuring teaspoons and not cutlery. There are about 5 types of measuring teaspoons in the world but the most common ones that 90% of the human population use are the Us teaspoon and the metric teaspoon.

### US teaspoon

The Us teaspoon was adopted in the Us and contains 4.93 ml approximately 5 ml of liquid. Industries and food companies use the standard 5 ml for one teaspoon.

### Metric teaspoon

The metric teaspoon has a measurement of exactly 5 ml and is adopted in the UK, Australia, Canada, and other commonwealth countries

Though New Zealand doesn’t use the metric teaspoon for its measurements, its teaspoon also exactly measures 5ml

## How to convert milliliters to teaspoons

Many recipes need us to do some measurement conversion before proceeding with the recipe. It is especially important that we get the measurements right when we are baking because baking is a lot more sensitive than cooking.

It is quite simple to convert milliliters to teaspoons. For example, if you want to know how many teaspoons are in 10 ml simply divide the amount of milliliters by the volume in a teaspoon.

i.e. 15 ml / 5 (amount of ml in a teaspoon)

= 3 teaspoons.

## DRY Measurement terminologies

It is common for recipes to specify how to measure ingredients. Below are the three most common terms:

- Leveled – A leveled spoon or cup means using another spoon to scoop the ingredient into the measuring container to a heap then, use the blunt flat edge of a knife or a spoon to level it by passing it over the edge of the spoon or cup
- Heaped – This means piling as much of the ingredient on the spoon or cup without it falling off
- Rounded – A rounded spoon means a slightly heaped spoon where the ingredients rise slightly above the edge of the spoon in a rounded shape.
