Hi!

You must've had quite a bit of broccoli in there if you measured it by weight :o) I agree with the others - it's one actual measuring cup. A recipe will usually specify if it is by weight and the only time you'll really see that is with meats (and occasionally baking, but not usually). The only time you'll use a measuring cup for "ounces" is with liquid.

Happy cooking! :o)

Hi - It took me some time to figure out how to measure some things. Did you know if you take a two cup measure, put in 1 cup water, then add your veggie or even fruit (strawberries, grapes, etc). When the water line is at the two cup line you have your 1 cup serving. Hope your journey is a happy one.

That would be a measuring cup full, not by weight.

When a recipe says 1 cup broccoli - is that stuffing broccoli in a measuring cup or 8 ounces of broccoli on the food scale? I made the Better than Takeout Fried rice the other other night and noticed there is a huge difference between the two. Wondering if anyone knows which is correct.
