    I believe they are one pound (16 ounce) boxes. I'm 95% certain but there's still that 5% that is asking for a second opinion. dish.

    The box I have is 16oz. It says that there are 15 1/4C servings per box. I figured it out and it comes to 3 3/4 C for the whole box.

    Hope this helps

    Boxes of 10-X sugar are one pound or 16 oz., but I think it's pretty close to 3-3/4 cups when measured out.

    The Domino Sugar web site states that a 1 pound box of confectioners' sugar contains 3 3/4 cups of unsifted sugar.

    you all answered this one, but I know how annette feels...I used to get frustrated when measuring out of a bag and recipe called for 1 box.
    I once bought a box with the measured amount stated on the side, it said 3 and some. Seems the cheaper store brands don't do that! Thanks for bringing me up to speed...3 3/4!!
