A pint (that is, the
fluid pint) is a unit of volume measure equal to 2 cups,
or 16 fluid
ounces. It is approximately equal to 473 ML. When
converting a recipe to metric, it is usually sound to
round the pint to 500 ML, along a pound of 500 g.
The dry pint,
approximately 551 ML, is not commonly used in cooking. It
is used in the sale of some items such as blueberries in
the United States.
The imperial pint
is about 20% larger, 568 mL, and divided into 20 imperial
fluid ounces rather than 16 US fluid ounces.
