Oven temperature conversion free printable
Of course, we know how annoying it is to scroll over your phone with flour-covered hands and calculate the conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit while being busy in the kitchen.
The solution? Voila, a free printable pdf chart with conversions from Celsius to Fahrenheit and values commonly used for baking.
The Celsius scale
The Celsius temperature measuring scale was invented by Swedish astronomer, physicist and mathematician Anders Celsius in which 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 scale
What is Fahrenheit?
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.
It was propagated around the world by the expansion of the British empire. Although the Fahrenheit scale is not in use in Europe and around most of the world, it is still the most commonly used temperature measuring scale in the US.
Celsius to Fahrenheit equation
So let’s say you’ve bumped into a really delicious-looking Greek Pastitsio recipe. You want to make this today, but the baking instruction is in Celsius, of course. So what to do?
You can calculate the needed oven temperature using the equation to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:
°F = °C (9/5) + 32
°F = (°C x 1.8) + 32
200 Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion
So how much is 200 Celsius in Fahrenheit?
Let’s calculate it.
(200°C x 1.8) + 32 = 392°F
Reverse conversion: 392°Fahrenheit to Celsius
But what if you’re living in Europe and you are following 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?
Again, the conversion is a 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 of regulating the temperature in the oven.
Gas mark 1 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 it up, 200°C (or 392°F) translates to gas mark 6 in a gas mark oven.
Let’s see Fahrenheit to Celsius to gas mark table:
|225 °F||107 °C||1⁄4|
|250 °F||121 °C||1⁄2|
|275 °F||135 °C||1|
|300 °F||149 °C||2|
|325 °F||163 °C||3|
|350 °F||177 °C||4|
|375 °F||191 °C||5|
|400 °F||204 °C||6|
|425 °F||218 °C||7|
|450 °F||232 °C||8|
|475 °F||246 °C||9|
|500 °F||260 °C||10|
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 of the recipes, especially the older ones, include baking temperature instructions according to baking time in the conventional oven.
If you own a conventional oven, you will most probably be able to bake any goods using most of the recipes with a simple conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit.
200°C/392°F in a convection oven
Now here comes a brand new convection oven in the picture.
Have you noticed, that the usual recipe instructions do not apply to baking in the convection oven?
That’s because the convection oven has a built-in fan, which 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, which 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 by reducing the temperature from the recipe instructions by 25°F or 20 °C or reducing the baking time by about 20%.
Meaning, 200 °C in a conventional oven equals to 180 °C using a convection oven.
Baking at 392 °F in a conventional oven is equal to baking at 367 °F in a convection oven.
However, you need to be very careful if baking at high temperatures and reducing the time of baking. It might quickly happen that your bread will look overbaked on the outside, but still not thoroughly baked on the inside.
Conventional vs. convection oven in degrees Fahrenheit
Here’s a conventional vs. convection oven baking temperature table to help you calculate the needed temperature:
|Conventional oven||Convection oven|
|200 °F||175 °F|
|220 °F||195 °F|
|240 °F||215 °F|
|260 °F||235 °F|
|280 °F||255 °F|
|300 °F||275 °F|
|320 °F||295 °F|
|340 °F||315 °F|
|360 °F||335 °F|
|380 °F||355 °F|
|400 °F||315 °F|
|420 °F||375 °F|
|440 °F||415 °F|
|460 °F||435 °F|
|480 °F||455 °F|
|500 °F||475 °F|

200 degrees Celsius converted to Fahrenheit equals 392 °F.
The temperature at 200 °C or 392 °F is represented by gas mark 6 (5.7) in a gas mark oven.
When baking goods in a convection oven, it is advisable to reduce the temperature from 200 °C to 180 °C or from 392 °F to 367 °F.
The easiest way to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is to use a free printable pdf chart.
The Fahrenheit temperature scale is used in the US, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, Belize and Liberia. China is using the Celsius temperature scale.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most types of bread are baked between 162 and 260° C. By traditional bread recipes it’s best to bake the bread at a higher temperature of 220 °C for the first 15 minutes and continue baking for another 20 minutes at 200 °C.
It depends on how big and how many potatoes you are roasting in the oven. Potatoes cut into common-sized pieces, that are placed flat on a baking sheet in a single layer will need about 35 minutes to be fully roasted at 200 degrees Celsius.
It depends on how thick the stake is. A 2-inch thick steak will need to roast for one hour, while a thinner steak might be ready in 45 minutes. A medium-rare steak will show an internal temperature of about 125°F/50°C.
Depending on the size, middle-sized seasoned and greased chicken drumsticks will need about 40-45 minutes at 200 degrees celsius to be fully baked.
Boneless chicken thighs will bake faster in the oven than chicken thighs with a bone and skin. Depending on the size of the chicken thighs, boneless and skinless (seasoned and greased) chicken thighs will be ready in about 30-40 minutes, while chicken thighs with a bone might need 35-50 minutes to become medium-rare baked.
The medium-sized chicken breasts will take about 20 minutes to bake at 200 degrees Celsius.
