Let’s calculate the exact volume of a liquid in a teaspoon and a tablespoon in milliliters and grams.
Note: while using spoons as a measuring tool for liquids and dry goods, you should always remember that numbers for volume in milliliters approximately will be the same for different liquid products, but amount of grams in a spoon can differ depending on a product density. Also, pay attention spoons can be rounded or level.
Volume of a teaspoon in milliliters.
Approximate volume of a teaspoon is 5 ml (milliliters).
Note: small deviations are possible due to the fact there is certain amount of teaspoons with different volume.
Volume of an American tsp teaspoon = 4.93 ml.
Volume of an Australian tsp teaspoon = 5.00 ml.

Weight of a product in a tablespoon.
One level tablespoon holds 15 grams.
Note: all these numbers are approximate as density can vary from one product to another. Check our list of measured products for necessary information.
Information on volume of a tablespoon and volume of a teaspoon can be very helpful. How many milliliters are in a tablespoon and how many milliliters are in teaspoon; how many grams are in a tablespoon and how many grams are in a teaspoon. Answers to all these questions will help to make your cooking experience easier.
