Thread: conversion calculator

    Default conversion calculator


    Converting a recipe from UK to US measurements and found this web site
    http://www.dianasdesserts.com/index....s/Measures.cfm
    Do you have a favorite conversion calculator site to share? Gourmet
    Sleuth's is more comprehensive, but it's also harder to use.

    TIA

    This one is very simple, and is copyrighted by the CABAL (TINC):

    http://www.recfoodcooking.com/cvtunits.html

    It only converts one thing at a time, though, not a whole recipe.

    Sometimes you have to spell the unit measurement out instead of
    abbreviating it, but I can't recall a single unit measurement it will
    NOT convert, no matter how bizarre.

    Yeah, but google didn't do the conversions I needed. I was just
    curious if anyone had something more complete than the one I posted
    and not as complicated as Gourmet Sleuth and had forgotten there was a
    conversion calculator on the web site.

    Thanks for the reminder - I'd completely forgotten about it. Too bad
    I converted the recipe before posting, because using the rfc web site
    would have saved me 5-10 minutes.

    I've never had much of a problem with mental arithmetic. There aren't
    really a lot of factors to memorize and, when we rented apartments in
    Europe, we never had much trouble remembering the approximate needed
    weight in grams for various foodstuffs. Cooking is not an exact science

    You go right ahead and do that. I round up or down to standard US
    measurements after I find out what the real conversion is.

    Not really, although it's a standard line given by people who advocate
    weights.

    It's pretty simple. The basic formula is 4 feet per gallon. You can
    work out the math from there, I'm sure.

    Using the program I posted the link to previously......

    3g = 0.1058208 ounce (avdp) (oz), which equals 0.6349248 teaspoons.

    3 grams of what? It does make a difference.

    That is why the conversion can't be done. One unit of measurement is
    for weight and the other unit of measurement is for volume. Duh.
