Oven Temperature Conversion

Here’s a useful chart showing oven temperature conversions for fahrenheit, celsius, and gas marks. All common oven temperatures are below. Since it is such a common question, if you’re wondering what 350 degrees F in celsius is, it’s 177 degrees C. Oven Temperature Conversion Chart: Fahrenheit, Celsius and Gas Mark

We’ll often come across a recipe that we would love to make, but find the oven temperature listed in the recipe is not what we are used to. Here, in the United States we use Fahrenheit. That shouldn’t stop us from making delicious recipes from other countries, though.

These conversions are approximate for Fahrenheit, Celsius, and gas marks.

Fahrenheit Celsius Gas Mark Terminology
275 degrees F   140 degrees C             1   Very Cool or Very Slow
300 degrees F   150 degrees C             2   Cool or Slow
325 degrees F   165 degrees C             3   Warm
350 degrees F   177 degrees C             4   Moderate
375 degrees F   190 degrees C             5   Moderate
400 degrees F   200 degrees C             6   Moderately Hot
425 degrees F   220 degrees C             7   Hot
450 degrees F   230 degrees C             8   Hot
475 degrees F   245 degrees C             9   Hot
500 degrees F   260 degrees C             10   Very Hot

For the exact conversion, we have shared formulas for converting Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa.

How to Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

To convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius, you will need to subtract 32 to the Fahrenheit temperature, multiply by 5, then divide by 9.

For example, to convert 350 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius you would complete the following equation:

350 degrees Fahrenheit – 32 = 318

318 x 5 = 1590

1590 / 9 = 176.66 degrees Celsius, which can be rounded to 177 degrees Celsius

How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

To convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, you will need to multiply degrees Celsius by 9, divide by 5, then add 32.

For example, to convert 177 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit you would complete the following equation:

177 degrees Celsius x 9 = 1593

1593 / 5 = 318.6

318.6 +32 = 350.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which can be rounded to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
