Oven temperatures may be quoted in degrees in Celsius (International), Fahrenheit (in Canada and USA) or by gas mark (sometimes in the UK and France). This table allows you to convert between the scales. Bold gas mark numbers are the most well-accepted matches.

Different manufacturers and oven types do vary, particularly for fractional gas marks. Ovens are often inaccurate by 14° Celsius (25° Fahrenheit) or more.
