How to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:

If you need to make a temperature conversion from Fahrenheit scale to using the Celsius scale when cooking then you need to do a little math!

To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius:

(Fahrenheit temperature – 32) multiply by 5, then divide by 9

For example, let’s say you want to convert 350oF to Celsius. It would be:

  1. 350 – 32 = 318

  2. 318 x 5 = 1590

  3. 1590 divide by 9 = 176.67 (or rounded 177oC)

How to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit, you just need to do a little math in the other direction! Here’s how:

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:

Celsius temperature x 9, divide by 5, then add 32.

For example let’s convert it back the other way for 177oC.

  1. 177 x 9 = 1593

  2. 1593 divide by 5 = 318.6

  3. 318.6 + 32 = 350
