How many cups in a quart?
When using cup and fluid quart measurements from the same country, one quart equals 4 cups or 2 pints.
- 1 Quart (US, fluid) = 4 Cups (US)
- 1 Quart (UK, fluid) = 4 Cups (UK, imperial)
The above conversions should help 95% of people. It's worth noting that you will get a different measurement if you mix up the different cup sizes. For example, the UK rarely (since the 1970s) references UK imperial cups in recipes and often adopts the metric cup, which is used in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the rest of the Commonwealth. The metric cup is smaller (250mL) than the imperial cup (284.131 mL).
