close up of cream-colored vintage Aga ovenWe get recipes from all over the world these days, and that creates a kind of translation problem: some recipes show the oven temperature in Celcius, some in Farhenheit degrees, and some as a Gas mark. Some of our treasured old family recipes, dating back to the wood-stove days, just say to use a “hot” or “slow” oven and “cook until done”!

How can a cook ever know what oven temperature to use?

Fortunately, the science-minded guys over at CookingForEngineers.com have made up the oven temperature conversion charts we need to use the right cooking heat in all four systems — Celcius, Farhenheit, Gas, and Granny!
