The standard American cooking measurement. While it works in a satisfactory way for items that only need rough measurements, precision is not its strong point - making accurate baking, and the measurement of small amounts impossible. For example, a cup of flour is 3.55 oz, while a cup of raisins is 5.33 oz. For more detail see "American Cup Measures".
