Cooking Time Calculator

The Cooking Time Calculator can be used as a simple time calculator or as a guide to plan the complete cooking process from preparation to serving providing a full cooking time duration so you can plan your events around your cooking times.

Many recipes specify a time per weight at a certain temperature, the Cooking Time Calculator allows you to enter instructions in this manner, and also any additional instructions.

You can also select the temperature specified in your recipe and convert it to the type of cooker you are going to use, for example, a recipe may specify a gas mark, and you have an electric cooker. In this case you would select the gas mark number in the "Temperature" column and select "electric" from the "Equivalent" dropdown list. The electric equivalent will then be displayed.

Schedule timings are shown in hh:mm (hours:minutes) 24 hour format, rounded to the nearest minute.

We think the Cooking Time Calculator is the perfect tool to help you plan your meal and convert Gas Mark to Electric temperatures (whether using a fan oven or not) to allow for those trickier recipes in older cook books than don't provide both cooking temperatures. Please contact us, leave a message in our forums or a message on our Facebook page if you have any further suggestions or tools you would like added to the Cooking Time Calculator, we are always happy to add new features to support our online community. We respond to all relevant correspondence.
