Find a measuring jug that is Imperial measurements, along with UK size tablespoons and teaspoons. Does anyone know where to find them with out me forking over both arms and legs to have them imported?

I always thought the US used Imperial measurements - just discovered there are some differences!!

The table below is from Wikipedia. Tablespoons and teaspoons are almost the same for UK and USA. Cups are a bit different, but not worth going broke for!!

Others who live over there may have more useful advice.

Measure Aust. Canada UK USA
Teaspoon 5 ml 5 ml 5 ml 4.93 ml

Dessertspoon 10 ml —

Tablespoon 20 ml 15 ml 15 ml 14.79 ml

Cup 250 ml 250 ml 285 ml 236.59 ml 240 ml

It's a problem, I know. I live in NY and trying to convert UK recipes into American cups is a challenge. Maybe you'd be interested in the following product at Amazon.com--it measures by volume and weight:
Taylor Digital Measuring Cup and Scale.

Good luck!
