How Many Cups In A Quart, Pint, Gallon!

How many cups in a quart—it’s a question that was making smoke come out of my ears! Gallons, Quarts, and Cups—Oh MY! Use this easy memory tool to help you remember how many cups are in a quart, in a pint, or in a gallon!

How Many Cups In A Quart?

How many cups in a quart, pint, gallon!

  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts, 8 pints, 16 cups
  • 1 quart = 2 pints, 4 cups
  • 1 pint = 2 cups

Last month I was trying to remember a recipe that my grandmother used to make every time we visited. Of course, no one in the family had ever written this recipe on a card, a napkin or even an odd bit of paper. Isn’t it a tragedy when old family recipes get lost over time?

I ended up finding a similar recipe in an old church cookbook and needed to break down some of the measurements into my proportions, and that’s when my powers of recollection failed me.

How many cups in a pint? And how many pints in a quart? I went to Google, as I have to do every single time I need to remember measurement conversions and it occurred to me: there has to be a better way!

That’s when I remembered a brilliant graphic that I had printed from a website years ago.

I tucked it into the back edge of a cookbook and filed it away in my kitchen, sure to be forgotten.

The original graphic was pretty worn out, so I decided to make a fresh one for you to utilize. You should totally print this and keep it on your refrigerator. You’re going to find it so useful, and soon enough, you’ll have the graphic memorized for life!

Here’s a shortlist of the conversions using the graphic above. You’re never going to have to consult Siri to find out how many cups are in a quart ever again!

  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts, 8 pints, 16 cups
  • 1 quart = 2 pints, 4 cups
  • 1 pint = 2 cups

Now, after you’ve committed the measurement conversion tool to memory (it’s not that hard, it’s tarts with the gallon eating the quarts), you can test yourself using the questions below.

How many cups in a quart?

There are 4 cups in a quart.

How many cups in 2 quarts?

How many pints in a quart?

How many quarts in a gallon?

I’ll be honest, friends, I’ve never won any awards in math. Numbers just aren’t my thing, and this can be tough for someone who loves to cook and bake. It’s why I keep this cheat sheet on my refrigerator these days. I even have mine laminated!

Speaking of measuring cups and the kitchen, I am just dying over how sweet these mason jar measuring cups are!
