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

    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.

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

      that works for most things

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

              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
