Use these easy conversion tables to get it right in your kitchen wherever you may be.
Or you can enter the the temperature you want to convert in the calculator below.

Enter the numbers in the top left hand box and choose your scale i.e. ºF or ºC. Easy and fairly accurate, although not exact.

Pam is grateful to Wikipedia for the charts below.

The values in these conversion tables are only approximate and have been rounded up or down for clarity. Always stick to either metric or imperial measurements in the same recipe.

Oven Temperatures Conversion Tables

Oven temperatures can be in degrees Celsius (International) -- previously Centigrade, degrees Fahrenheit (in the USA) or by gas mark (UK). This table provides a rough guide to conversion between the ranges.

For fan assisted ovens use a setting of 25° Celsius (77° Fahrenheit) less than the recipe calls for. Cooking times can probably be reduced by 10 minutes for every hour of cooking time.


Centigrade Farenheit Gas Mark Verbal
100° (107°) 225° ¼ Very slow/Very low
120° (121°) 250° ½ Very slow/Very low
140° (135°) 275° 1 Slow/Low
150° (149°) 300° 2 Slow/Low
160° (163°) 325° 3 Moderately slow/Warm
180° (177°) 350° 4 Moderate/Medium
190° (191°) 375° 5 Moderate/Moderately hot
200° (204°) 400° 6 Moderately hot
220° (218°) 425° 7 Hot
230° (232°) 450° 8 Hot/Very hot
250° (246°) 475° 9 Very hot
260° 500° 10 Extremely hot

Note on cup measurements.
In 'modern' recipes, use of the cup measure appears mainly in American recipes. Even here there are 2 standards. The Commonwealth or Imperial cup measurement is 1/2 pint though in practice, only commonly used in historic recipes. If your recipe uses cups as the 'base' measurement for all ingredients, then you should be ok. If you are uncertain, err on the side of caution. In general, it is easy to add a little more of an ingredient, it is much harder to take it away again, after the event.
