There are many different types of ovens; Our Oven Temperature Conversion clears up any confusion when converting.
Convert between gas and electric ovens, fan ovens and conventional oven temperatures.
Not forgetting the conversion between UK and US - Celsius to Fahrenheit conversions.
Jump straight to the conversion you are looking for or print the chart, which gives you all the conversions on one temperature cheat sheet.
Oven Conversion Table
We’ve started by creating this handy oven conversion table below.
This includes all the temperature conversions you will need in one chart, from fan oven to conventional in °C to °F to gas mark.
Handy when cooking recipes from us and others.
|Fan Oven °C||Conventional Oven °C||°F||Gas Mark|
F to C
Here are a few of the most commonly asked conversions from Fahrenheit to Celcius (°F to °C), including F to fan oven conversion.
300 F to C = 150 °C / 130 °C fan
325 F to C = 170 °C / 150 °C fan
350 F to C = 180°C / 160 °C fan
375 F to C = 190°C / 170 °C fan
400 F to C = 200°C / 180 °C fan
425 F to C = 220°C / 200 °C fan
450 F to C = 230°C / 210 °C fan
475 F to C = 240 °C / 220 °C fan
C to F
And here are the same conversions, only the other way around from Fan °C or conventional oven Celcius to Fahrenheit.
130 °C fan / 150 C to F = 300°F
150 °C fan / 170 C to F = 325°F
160 °C fan / 180 C to F = 350°F
170 °C fan / 190 C to F = 375°F
180 °C fan / 200 C to F = 400°F
200 °C fan / 220 C to F = 425°F
210 °C fan / 230 C to F = 450°F
220 °C fan / 240 C to F = 475°F
Electric Oven to Fan Conversion
Converting recipes from a regular electric oven without a fan to an electric fan oven is easy; reduce the heat by 20°C or use our conversion below.

What's the difference between Celsius and Centigrade?
Celsius and Centigrade are two different names for the same temperature.

Fan 130°C / 150 C to Gas Mark = 2
Fan 150°C / 170 C to Gas Mark = 3
Fan 160°C / 180 C to Gas Mark = 4
Fan 170°C / 190 C to Gas Mark = 5
Fan 180°C / 200 C to Gas Mark = 6
Fan 200°C / 220 C to Gas Mark = 7
Fan 210°C / 230 C to Gas Mark = 8
Fan 220°C / 240 C to Gas Mark = 9
F to Gas Mark
Looking to convert a recipe from Fahrenheit to gas mark? Here are the conversions you need.
300 F to Gas Mark = 2
325 F to Gas Mark = 3
350 F to Gas Mark = 4
375 F to Gas Mark = 5
400 F to Gas Mark = 6
425 F to Gas Mark = 7
450 F to Gas Mark = 8
475 F to Gas Mark = 9
What is a Fan-assisted Oven?
A fan-assisted oven is also known as a fan-forced oven, electric fan oven or convection oven. It has a top and bottom heating element with a fan at the back to help evenly cook.
It's easy to see why fan-assisted ovens are so popular. They offer better results with less time and temperature sensitivity. Fan ovens are perfect for cooking crispy Yorkshire Puddings.
You can also batch cook on multiple oven shelves without sacrificing your dishes!
Do Americans have Fan assisted ovens?
Usually, no. Most American homes don’t have convection ovens.
So you'll need to convert a recipe yourself if not already given.
In our recipes, we give all the conversions for f to c, including fan and gas mark.
What is a Conventional Oven?
A conventional oven has two heating elements that heat the air inside the oven to cook food.
The bottom heating element is used for most cooking and baking, while the top one browns items like meats giving that crispy skin you love so much.
Cakes are often better cooked in ovens without the fan mode, such as our Chocolate Victoria Sponge.
What oven do we use?
Another question we often get asked is, 'What oven do we use in our recipes?'
We use a fan assisted electric double range oven made by Britannia for all the recipes seen on our blog which use an oven.
We also have a gas oven in our motorhome to cook our recipes on our travels! Our friends and family also test our recipes using other appliances too.
Cooking can be a tricky business - especially when it comes to temperature conversions. Ovens typically use degrees Fahrenheit in the US, while British recipes call for degrees Celsius.
We hope these oven temperature conversions helped you convert Celsius, Fahrenheit and Gas Mark; please share on social media to help others!
