Oven Temperature Conversions
We have all run into a recipe (or recipes) that we would like to use but that is given with an oven setting other than what we typically use. This guide is meant to cover a wide base of oven temperature conversions, either with the calculations that you would need to use or with a quick chart.
To Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:
Subtract 32, multiply by 5, then divide by 9
To Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:
Multiply by 9, divide by 5, then add 32.

Convection Oven Temperature Conversion
When using the term 'Fan' it refers to a convection (or fan-assisted) oven, and the temperature will be adjusted as follows:
Follow instructions for baking time, but reduce the convection oven temperature by 20-25 degrees F (-4 to -7 degrees C).
*This should be accurate enough for your baking needs, please keep in mind temperatures and power level can vary between different types and brands of ovens, also altitude, temperature, and humidity.
**Individual ovens, when tested, typically range +/- 25 degrees F (-4 degrees C), and that the most accurate temperature for cooking and baking is kept with an internal oven thermometer. We don't usually suggest things, but we do rely heavily on our own thermometer which is a bargain in the $2-8 price range.
***In general, if you can hold your hand in the oven for 8-12 seconds then the oven temperature is approximately 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). This is not our suggested method 🙂
