How to Convert Kilograms to Milliliters
To convert a kilogram measurement to a milliliter measurement, divide the weight multiplied by 1,000 by the density of the ingredient or material.
You can use this simple formula to convert:
Thus, the weight in milliliters is equal to the kilograms times 1,000, divided by the density of the ingredient or material.
Kilograms and milliliters are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.
For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements. The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.
The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

The definition of the kilogram changed in 2019. One kilogram was previously equal to the mass of the platinum-iridium bar, known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram, which was stored in Sèvres, France.
The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.
The milliliter is an SI unit of volume in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. A milliliter is sometimes also referred to as a millilitre. Milliliters can be abbreviated as ml, and are also sometimes abbreviated as mL or mℓ. For example, 1 milliliter can be written as 1 ml, 1 mL, or 1 mℓ.
Milliliters are sometimes expressed using the abbreviation cc for medical dosage, which is the abbreviation for the cubic centimeter.
