How much does a Stick of Butter weigh?

Can someone please tell me how much a "stick of butter" should weigh? I know this is a common American term, but in Australia, we measure butter by weight. I have an American cookbook which asks me to use a stick of butter, and I have no idea how much to use. I am happy with pounds, ounces, kilos or grams. Thank you

I have just found the answer - amazingly, someone else from Australia has asked the same question at practically the same time. My bad for not checking the forum first!

Usually, butter is divided into 4 individually-wrapped portions. Butter is sold by the pound here, so each portion weighs 4 ounces.

A stick of butter is 1/4 of a pound, 4 ounces, 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons.

1 stick = 120g

1 stick = 120ml

Kisal and Jo,

Thank you so much, very grateful and can now cook my recipes properly.

There's so many things in America I wish I could get - I loved Monterey Jack Cheddar cheese when I was over there, but there is nothing quite like it over here.

Monterey Jack in Australia

This may not be completely appropriate for a low carb site but I'm just answering a question. OzzyGirl, you can get Monterey Jack cheese at Costco. You either have to be a member or go with one to shop there but it can be done ... your Monterey memories need not only be dreams!
Good luck.

When accuracy counts

It probably won't matter for most recipes but 1 ounce = 28.3495 g.
Rounding that up to 28.35g x 4 = 113.4g for 1 stick of butter.
I usually treat 1 stick of butter as 114g and I haven't had any problems.

I also confirm that Costco has a variety of cheeses that are not available elsewhere - and at a good price too.
