Oven Temperature Conversion

Oven Temperature Conversions

We’ll often come across a recipe that we would love to make, but find the oven temperature listed in the recipe is not what we are used to. Here, in the United States we use Fahrenheit. That shouldn’t stop us from making delicious recipes from other countries, though.

Below we have shared a conversion chart that shows the conversions for Fahrenheit, Celsius and gas marks. Depending on you oven, you may need to round to the closest option your oven provides you. For example, 177 degrees C can be rounded to 200 degrees Celsius. We have also shared formulas for converting Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa.

Oven Temperature Conversion Chart: Fahrenheit, Celsius and Gas Mark

How to Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

To convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius, you will need to subtract 32 to the Fahrenheit temperature, multiply by 5, then divide by 9.

For example, to convert 350 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius you would complete the following equation:

350 degrees Fahrenheit – 32 = 318

318 x 5 = 1590

1590 / 9 = 176.66 degrees Celsius, which can be rounded to 177 degrees Celsius

How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

To convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, you will need to multiply degrees Celsius by 9, divide by 5, then add 32.

For example, to convert 177 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit you would complete the following equation:

177 degrees Celsius x 9 = 1593

1593 / 5 = 318.6

318.6 +32 = 350.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which can be rounded to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
