Conversions website

Hey Hounds,

I bought a wonderful baking book called Baking with Passion from a London place called Baker & Spice.

All the temperatures and quantities are metric, of course.

Even though I'm Eurotrash and should know this, I have forgotten all my celsius and grammes measurements.

Does anyone have a favorite conversions website to recommend?

Gracias,

- Sean

        I'm lazy and let google do it

        for example

        150 degrees celsius in fahrenheit (it automagically completes most of this)
        or
        300 grams in ounces

          I had no idea. Just tried it and it works. Thank you.

              I use KoalaCalc, myself but it is a Macintosh app. No need for me to go online unless explaining something to someone else.

                28 grams in an ounce
                2.2llbs in a kilo
                580mls is a pint

                that works for most things

                  Before I got my kitchen scale, I used this site: http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/cookingconversions.asp

                  It's food-specific, which means you select the food and additional relevant details (ie brown or white sugar, etc), and then get a conversion. I've generally found it to be fairly reliable, although sometimes I find the categories a little confusing.
