This handy oven temperature conversion chart easily converts from Celsius to Fahrenheit to gas marks. Plus, download this simple chart for FREE to refer to while baking anytime.
There is nothing complicated about converting the oven temperature from one unit to another: from Celsius to Fahrenheit to gas mark.
You maybe have a go-to oven temperature conversion chart stuck on a cabinet door or your fridge.
But what if you get a comprehensive guide with a temperature conversion table and a free printable?
This article will help you convert the different temperatures between Fahrenheit, Celsius, and gas marks.
It also provides a fan oven temperature conversion table and guidelines for adapting recipes that call for a regular oven to use a convection one.

Conventional oven conversion chart
Conventional ovens have been the most popular oven type since the 1950s. They come in different sizes with either gas or electric options.
Conventional electric ovens have electric heating elements on the top and bottom, while gas ovens rely on a gas flame.
Here are cheat sheets to help convert your recipes into the temperature units of your preference.
They are created for temperatures of conventional ovens (aka traditional ovens).
Note: the conversions below aren't rounded up or down. You can round the number to the nearest degree: this will have very little to no difference in the result of your recipe.

Some recipes use "slow" or "hot" to describe oven temperatures. Here is a table for approximate temperatures for these terms.
|Cool/Very Slow Cook||250°F||121°C||½|
Convection oven conversion chart
Convection ovens (aka fan ovens) differ from conventional ovens: they have fans.
The fan circulation of hot air throughout the chamber helps to ensure fast and even cooking of the food.
Interestingly, European convection ovens use a third heating element located behind the fan.
Convection ovens can be gas, or electric and are sold as an option in stoves, wall ovens, and countertop ovens.
So how do you adapt a recipe written for a regular oven to work for a convection oven?
The general rule is to reduce the temperature by 25°F or cut the cooking time by 25 percent.
If you use a fan-assisted gas oven, reduce the gas mark by 1.
And if you use an electric fan oven, you should reduce the temperature by 20°C.
But the best way to succeed in cooking and baking using a convection oven is to check the recommended temperature from the manufacturer's handbook or website.
And always remember that baked goods might gain a golden brown color quickly due to fan assistant circulation of the hot air.
However, your bakes may not be thoroughly cooked. So make sure to check the doneness of your baking goods.
Here is a table to convert the oven temperature (in Fahrenheit) between a conventional oven and a convection one.

Oven conversion formulas
Here is a question: how to convert the oven temperature not included in the above charts?
There is no problem since there are all the equations to convert between Fahrenheit, Celsius, and gas mark.
The equation to convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit
°F = °C (9/5) + 32, or
°F = (°C x 1.8) + 32
For example, what is 220 Celsius to Fahrenheit?
(220°C x 1.8) + 32 = 428°F, or
to round it up 430°F.
The equation to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius
°C = (°F - 32) x 5/9, or
°C = (°F - 32) x 0.5556
For example, how to convert 325 Fahrenheit to Celsius:
(325°F - 32) x 0.5556 = 162.7908°C, or
to round it down, 160°C.
The equation to convert from Celsius to gas mark
Gas mark = (°C - 121) x 9/125, or
Gas mark = (°C - 121) x 0.072
For example, what gas mark is 180 °C?
(180°C - 121) x 0.072 = 4,248, or simply 4.
Note: the equations for only work for gas mark settings as one or higher. For gas marks below 1, it moves down to ½ instead of 0 and ¼ instead of -1.
The equation to convert from Fahrenheit to gas mark
Gas mark = (°F - 250) x 1/25, or
Gas mark = (°F - 250) x 0.04
For example, what is 300°F in the gas mark?
(300°F - 250) x 0.04 = 2.
The equation to convert from gas mark to Celsius
°C = (Gas Mark x 125/9) + 121, or
°C = (Gas Mark x 13.88) + 121
For example, how to convert gas mark 3 to Celsius?
(3 x 13.88) + 121 = 162.64, or
to round it down, 160°C.
The equation to convert from gas mark to Fahrenheit
°F = (Gas mark x 25) + 250
For example, what is gas mark 3 in Fahrenheit?
(3 x 25) +250 = 325°F
