A measuring cup can hold more than 1 "cup" of liquid (a cup is equal to 8 fluid ounces, see US Standard Volume to learn more).
This measuring cup holds up to 4 cups of liquid. If the liquid goes all the way to the 3, then there are 3 cups of liquid. Between the numbers, you would find fractions of a cup.
2 cups of a liquid is the same thing as 1 pint. So this measuring cup also holds 2 pints (4 cups equals 2 pints). |
