How to Convert Ounces to Tablespoons

To convert an ounce measurement to a tablespoon measurement, divide the weight multiplied by 1.917223 by the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

tablespoons = ounces × 1.917223ingredient density

Thus, the weight in tablespoons is equal to the ounces times 1.917223, divided by the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 ounces to tablespoons for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 oz = 5 × 1.9172230.7 = 13.694449 tbsp

This calculator converts ounces in weight, if you're trying to convert a volume measurement in fluid ounces try our fluid ounces to tablespoons calculator.

Ounces and tablespoons 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.[1] 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.

For cooking and baking ingredients, you can get more specific results using our butter, flour, sugar conversion calculators.
