To make it easier for my readers outside of the US, I'm converting some of my recipes too including the equivalent temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius and Gas Mark.
Oven Temperature Conversion Chart

|225 degrees||110 degrees||1/4||Low Heat|
|250 degrees||130 degrees||1/2||Low Heat|
|275 degrees||140 degrees||1||Low Heat|
|300 degrees||150 degrees||2||Low Heat|
|325 degrees||165 degrees||3||Medium-Low Heat|
|350 degrees||177 degrees||4||Medium Heat|
|375 degrees||190 degrees||5||High Heat|
|400 degrees||200 degrees||6||High Heat|
|425 degrees||220 degrees||7||High Heat|
|450 degrees||230 degrees||8||Very High Heat|
|475 degrees||245 degrees||9||Very High Heat|
Different ovens may vary in temperature accuracy, particularly for fractional gas marks. Ovens are often inaccurate by as much as 25 degrees Fahrenheit. I highly recommend purchasing an accurate oven thermometer.
What is Celsius?
The Celsius scale, or centigrade scale, is a temperature scale that is based on the freezing point of water at 0°C and the boiling point of water at 100°C.
What is Fahrenheit?
The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale that is based on the freezing point of water at 32°F and the boiling point of water at 212°F.
What is Gas Mark?
The Gas Mark is a temperature scale used on gas ovens and cookers in the United Kingdom.
Interesting facts about temperature
- Celsius and Fahrenheit are the same at -40°.
- Water boils at 100°C or 212°F.
- Water freezes at 0°C and 32°F.
Movie Trivia: The book Fahrenheit 451 is named for the temperature at which books catch fire.Fahrenheit 451, a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury, is available as a book, ebook, and movie.
