I had to register just to post this answer. It is three pours:

From the 7, pour into the 4 and 3 (leaving the 7 empty). Then pour half of the four into the 7, leaving 2 liters in the 7, 2 liters in the 4 and 3 liters in the 3.

700, 340, 043, 223


YOU CAN'T POUR HALF OF A BOWL!
Imagine you're Samuel L. Jackson or Bruce Willis in Die Hard. You're trying to diffuse a bomb, and you need an exact amount of water to trigger a scale and turn the bomb off. Pouring "half" of a bowl isn't very exact, and would likely result in you being blown to bits.

How many times does it have to be said that you can't pour half of a bowl?

HA HA! Its interesting that people who can't read are doing logic puzzles on the internet.

But really, what I would do is pour 2/7 of the original into the 3 liter bowl, and then pour 3/5 of remaining into the 4 liter bowl. Then I would diffuse the bomb.

Done it in 5 pours (7, 4, 3 Litres respectively)

700 - 340 - 313 - 601 - 241 - 223

No half pours, no steps missed!

700 - 340 - 313 - 601 - 241 - 223
xxx - xxx - xxx - ???

You missed a step.
You moved the 1 from the middle position of 313 to the end, making 601, but it would really be 610. Sorry.

Start by pouring 2.33 into each of the second and third bowl, leaving all three with 2.33.
Then pour .33 from the second and third bowl into the first, leaving 3 in first and 2 in 2nd & 3rd.

As said before the puzzle doesn't allow for half pours. Wouldn't be a point to the puzzle otherwise.
