Cooking Conversion Guide

If you like cooking, I’m sure you will need a cooking conversion guide, the reason is that you may be reading a recipe with one measurement system and you may prefer or know another. This happens a lot between UK and US recipes for sure. 

It doesn’t get any easier with cookbooks either, they also have a range of measurements and the most common is cups and you may need grams, so you need a cooking conversion guide that will help you with cups to grams. 

You will see that there are various cooking weights, temperatures and liquid amounts which are shown in cups, lbs, fluid oz, grams, imperial, metric etc.

It gets a bit confusing, especially if you only work in one measurement style.

So I thought I would make it a lot easier, it is something that I use all the time when I’m cooking.

Cooking Conversion Chart – Measurements 

As I’m sure you have realised, there are a lot of websites with conversions and it is very difficult to work out what is the correct one to follow, so I have made a simple table that will help give you an idea of what the conversions are in a number of options. 

I’ve tried to cover the common measurement styles and hopefully made it a little easier for you to follow.

I use this all the time when I am cooking, it means that halfway through mixing or weight my ingredients, I’m not having to then jump on my phone and get an online converter to help. It also makes it so much easier if you are doubling up mixtures for when you are making a big batch.

Now there are more than just measurements that a conversion chart is needed for and the next one is temperatures. Now this is the difference between Fahrenheit and Celsius, if you are following an American recipe it will be in Fahrenheit, but how do you convert it? Well this should help.

These really have helped me out, I hope that they are useful to you, as they have for me, especially when I am converting a recipe either online, in a book or elsewhere.
