The cup is a customary unit of measurement for volume. It is normally used in cooking to measure liquids (fluid measurement) or bulk foods such as granulated sugar (solid measurement). Cups are usually used in a situation where absolute precision is not required in your recipe, as opposed to being used as an exact measurement, for instance for the sale of foodstuffs.

The modern range of a cup measurement varies between 200 ml and 284 ml. In countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the Lebanon a 'metric cup' is used. This is commonly defined as 250 ml.

In the United States, however, the cup measurement is usually defined as half a pint, which equates for approximately 236.5 ml. For the legal purpose of nutrition labelling, however, one cup is defined as 240 ml in the United States.
