Sticks, Cups and Grams Measurement Exchange


US butter is sold in 1/2 or 1 pound packages and divided into “sticks”.

Each stick weighs 1/4 pound/4 ounces/110g.

One stick also contains 8 tablespoons and for convenience the packaging is marked with the tablespoon measures.

Each tablespoon weighs 1/2 ounce which we usually equate to a metric weight of 15g.

European butter is sold in 250g packages and for convenience the packaging is marked with the 25g measures.
