About Electricity and Fan-assisted and Electricity Ovens

When using a fan-assisted oven, you should lower the temperature by 20 degrees C, so if a recipe gives a temperature of 230 C, lower it to 210 °C in a fan-assisted oven. If you use a electric oven, just lower the temperature by 10 °C, ie. from 230 to 220 °C for the previous example.

To find the equivalence between gas mark (gas mark) and other temperature units used in cooking like gas mark or even descriptions like low, slow, high or moderate temperature, you can also use the temperature conversion chart above.

Note: the conversion table above uses approximate values sufficient to be precise for cooking purposes. But, please note that different manufacturers and oven types do vary, so this converter cannot give an exact indication. The best way to be sure about the oven temperature is to calibrate the scale using an oven thermometer.
