There are approximately 4.2 US cups of water in a liter. However, if you want a more accurate answer, the number of cups in a liter of water is 4.2268. This unusual liquid proportion may throw some off, especially those who want precision when measuring recipe requirements. One easy workaround for this issue would be to have a digital kitchen scale, or have measuring cups for US, metric and imperial systems. Still, don’t you just wish there were universal volume measurements?
