When you are involved with different cooking recipes from around the world, it is very likely that you will need to convert the temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa.
It was very difficult for me to convert the temperature during the first days of cooking, but it became very easy for me little by little. In this post, I want to share with you the easiest way to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, and for lazy people like myself, I have prepared a table of the most important cooking temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celsius.

Easy exact formula
To convert temperatures in degrees from Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature, multiply by 5, then divide by 9.
- Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature.
- Multiply this number by five.
- Divide the result by nine.
Formula for Fahrenheit to Celsius:
T(°C) = (T(°F) – 32) × 5/9
Fahrenheit to Celsius estimate formula
If the approximate temperature is enough for you, you can use this very simple approximate formula to get the temperature Celsius.
C(°C) = (F(°F) – 30) / 2
- Subtract 30 from the Fahrenheit temperature.
- Divide the result by 2.
Celsius to Fahrenheit Estimate Formula
An approximate conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit is as simple as doubling the temperature of Celsius and then adding 30 to it.
F(°F) = (C(°c) x 2) + 30
- Multiply Celsius temperature by 2.
- Add 30 to the result.

I kept some of the most important temperatures in cooking. In the table below, I bring them to you so that you can quickly convert between Fahrenheit and Celsius.
|Title||Fahrenheit (°F)||Celsius (°C)|
|Room temperature||70°F||21 °C|
|Activating yeast (water and sugar)||110°F||43°C|
|Yeast cells die||130°F||55°C|
|Safe internal temperature||165°F||74°C|
|Preheating the oven||355°F||180°C|
These conversions are very useful to me and I am sure they will be very useful for you. Be sure to memorize one of the main formulas because it gives you a very good view, you do not have to memorize many numbers.
