It’s annoying to scroll over your phone with flour-covered hands while really busy in the kitchen, calculating the conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

The solution? A free printable Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion chart with commonly used temperatures for baking.

The Celsius temperature scale

The Celsius temperature measuring scale was invented by Swedish astronomer, physicist and mathematician Anders Celsius. On it, 0°C is the freezing temperature point of water, and 100°C is the boiling temperature point.

It is the most commonly used temperature scale worldwide, except in the US, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, Belize and Liberia.

The Fahrenheit temperature scale

Where did the Fahrenheit scale come from?

Fahrenheit is a thermodynamic temperature scale by which water freezes at 32 °F and boils at 212 °F. It was named after the German scientist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit.

The expansion of the British Empire spread the Fahrenheit temperature scale worldwide. Although it is not used in Europe and most of the world, it is still the most commonly used temperature-measuring scale in the US.

Celsius to Fahrenheit equation

Let’s say you’ve found a really delicious-looking Greek Pastitsio recipe. You want to make it today, but the baking instructions are in Celsius. So what should you do?

You can calculate the needed oven temperature using the equation to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit. The formula to convert temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit is quite simple. Here’s the equation you use:

°F = °C (9/5) + 32


°F = (°C x 1.8) + 32

  • 𝐹 represents the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 𝐶 represents the temperature in degrees Celsius.

200 Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion

So how much is 200 Celsius in Fahrenheit?

Let’s quickly calculate this:

  1. Multiply 200 °C by 9/5 or 1.8​, which equals 360.
  2. Add 32 to 360 °C, giving 395 °F.

(200°C x 1.8) + 32 = 392°F

Reverse conversion: 392°Fahrenheit to Celsius

Okay, what if you live in Europe and follow a food blogger based in the US?

You just got a recipe for tasty, quick-to-make cinnamon rolls in your mail, but the recipe follows the Fahrenheit scale?

The reverse conversion is another piece of cake.

The equation to convert Fahrenheit into degrees Celsius looks like this:

°C = (°F – 32) x 0.5556


(392°F – 32) x 0.5556 = 200°C

200 Celsius to Fahrenheit to gas mark

Gas mark ovens use another system to regulate the temperature in the oven.

Gas mark 1 typically equals 135 °C or 275 °F. Each time the temperature increases a mark, that basically means 13.9 °C or 25 °F higher temperature in the oven.

To sum up, 200°C (or 392°F) is equivalent to gas mark 6 in a gas-mark oven.

Let’s see Fahrenheit to Celsius to gas mark table:

200°C/392°F in a conventional oven

A conventional oven usually has a heating element at the bottom of the oven. The main difference between a conventional and convection oven is the uneven circulation of the heat.

However, most recipes, especially the older ones, include baking temperature instructions according to the conventional oven’s baking time.

If you own one, you can probably bake any goods using most recipes with a simple conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

200°C/392°F in a convection oven

Now, here comes a new convection oven in the picture.

Have you noticed that the older recipe instructions do not always apply to baking in the convection oven?

That’s because the convection oven has a built-in fan that is responsible for the evenly circulated heat in the oven. Also, the heating elements are placed on the upper and lower part of the convection oven. All of that usually results in your croissants being baked more evenly. It’s a faster heating process compared to a conventional oven.

So how can this problem be solved?

Simply reduce the temperature from the recipe instructions by 25°F or 20 °C or reduce the baking time by about 20%.

Meaning 200 °C in a conventional oven equals 180 °C using a convection oven.

Baking at 392 °F in a conventional oven equals baking at 367 °F in a convection oven.

However, you must be very careful when baking at high temperatures and reducing the baking time. Your bread might quickly look overbaked on the outside but still not thoroughly baked on the inside.

Conventional vs. convection oven baking temperature in Fahrenheit

Here’s a conventional vs. convection oven baking temperature table to help you calculate the needed temperature:

Although the Fahrenheit temperature scale was brought to the US by the expanding British empire, it’s no longer used in Europe. The UK has been using the Celsius temperature scale since 1st January 1961.

What are 200 degrees Celsius in a fan oven?

The heating elements in the electric fan oven are usually placed on the upper and lower part of the oven. Because of the running fan that results in higher, but more evenly circulated heat. Since most of the recipes are written for conventional ovens, you need to reduce baking time by 20 percent or lower the temperature in the oven by about 20° C.

Why do we add 32 Celsius to Fahrenheit?

The formula for conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit is based on the freezing point of water. While using the Celsius scale the water freezes at 0° C, a freezing point on the Fahrenheit scale is 32° F.

How do you know if your oven is C or F?

You can know if your oven is measuring the temperature in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit by looking at the temperature range. The Celsius range will most likely start at 30° C and end at about 250° C, while a Fahrenheit-adapted oven will usually show values from 80° F to 450° F.

It depends for which market they are manufactured. GE ovens made for the US market will likely show the temperature in Fahrenheit. Approximately 30% of GE’s global patents are filed in the European region, and their appliances are being sold there.

What is better, Celsius or Fahrenheit?

The celsius scale is based on the water freezing point of 0 °C and a water boiling point of 100 °C at sea level. In contrast, the Fahrenheit scale is calculated from the freezing and boiling points of water in a saline solution. Therefore, the Celsius scale is much more practical and is widely used in science. However, some people prefer to use Fahrenheit thermometers because they have no decimals and the usage of negative values is less frequent.

At what temperatures do Celsius and Fahrenheit’s thermometers show the same temperature?

The Celsius scale and Fahrenheit scale intersect at -40 C and -40 F. The conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit is °F = (°C x 1.8) + 32, therefore, (-40°C x 1.8) + 32 = -72 + 32 = -40°F.

Can you bake bread at 200 degrees Celsius/392 Fahrenheit?
