**Oven temperature conversion** is every recipe maker's nightmare. It is a known fact that cooks and mathematicians have different skills and neither like attempting a change-over. So I hope, for all of our sakes, I'm not attempting the impossible with this page. So let's start with the geeky stuff and give you a formula and then we'll list a quick reference chart below.

**Farenheit to Centigrade**
Subtract 32 from the Farenheit figure then multiply by 5 and divide by 9 to get the Centigrade figure.

**Centigrade to Farenheit**
Mulitpy the Centigrade figure by 9, divide by 5 and then add 32 to get the Farenheit figure.

But what about plain English and 'gas marks'? Just use the chart below which covers all the temperature conversions.
