How Many Ounces in a Quart?

While some styles of cooking call for “a pinch of this” and a “dash of that,” many rely on precise recipes for a successful outcome, especially baking. Your grandma may be able to rely on her memory to create her famous spaghetti sauce and mouthwatering meatloaf, but most of us need some direction when it comes to making dinner. Perhaps one day we’ll be a good as granny! *Pinch and dash are actually fractional teaspoon amounts. You can read more about them in my Tablespoons to Cups conversion guide!

Now, lets go back to the equation at the beginning of this section. We now know that 32 fl oz. is the same as one quart. And 32 fluid ounces is also equal to two pints. Therefore, half the amount of a pint is the exact same measurement as half the amount of fluid ounces. (Source: thekitchencommunity.org)

What Exactly Are Ounces and Quarts?

Fluid ounces should not be confused with weight-measuring ounces. When thinking about the weight or volume of liquid, you would measure in fluid ounces. You will find that this unit of measuring liquid is mostly used within the US. However, there are other countries around the world that still use the Imperial system.

Fluid ounces (for liquids) are not the same as weight by the ounce. An ounce (or a fluid ounce) is the amount of water weighing one ounce. You may notice that many recipes call for cups. There are 4 cups in one quart, 8 oz per cup. There are 4 quarts in one gallon (literally a 'quarter' of a gallon apiece, which is where the name comes from). And there are 2 pints in one quart, 16 fluid ounces in one pint.

There are 32 ounces in one quart using the Imperial System of measurement. In the U.S., the imperial system is currently used for measurements. It was originally called the “British Imperial System,” but when the U.S. was established, we continued using the Imperial System whereas many other countries around the world moved along to the Metric System.
