Oven Temperature Conversion Table
What oven temperature is 175c?
A cool oven temperature would be 90 C (200 F), while a slow oven is considered 150 to 160 C (300–325 F). A moderate oven temperature is often a range of 180 to 190 C (350–375 F), and a hot temperature is above 200–230 C (400–450 F).

A convection oven has a fan with a heating element around, that provides the heat. A small fan circulates the air in the cooking chamber. Convection ovens may include radiant heat sources at the top and bottom of the oven, which improves heat transfer and speeds cooking from initial cold start.
Oven temperatures. Use this straightforward table as an oven temperature guide to convert between Celsius, Fahrenheit and Gas mark. If you have a fan-assisted oven, lower the temperature by 20 degrees C (ie if a recipe gives a temperature of 200 C, lower it to 180 C in a fan-assisted oven).
|325 degrees F||165 degrees C||3|
|350 degrees F||177 degrees C||4|
|375 degrees F||190 degrees C||5|
|400 degrees F||200 degrees C||6|
Fan-forced ovens have a heating element around the fan behind the rear panel. The electric element heats the air being circulated by the fan and evenly distributes it throughout the oven. Fan-assisted ovens have two heating elements, one in the roof and one in the base with a fan (but no element) at the back.
It comes down to how the heat is distributed. Both convection and conventional ovens are powered by gas or electricity. But the heat source in a conventional oven is stationary, usually radiating from the bottom, while in a convection oven a fan circulates the hot air around the chamber.
Fan-assisted conventional cooking blows air through the oven cavity, but the heat comes from the heating elements at the top and bottom of the inside of the cavity. Convection cooking circulates the air from the cavity over a separate heating element that is not inside of the cavity.
A: The average time to preheat an oven to 350° is about 15 minutes, but the time varies depending on the stove. Older stoves may take longer to preheat; some newer stove models have a fast preheat feature. If you're preheating to 450°, add another five minutes to the time.

Set your burner on medium and let your pan of oil heat for around 5 to 10 minutes. Put the meat thermometer in the center of the oil to check the temperature. The oil should be between 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 Celsius) and 400 F (205 C), depending on what you're cooking.
I have found that, using an IR thermometer to read pan bottom temperature after 5 minutes of heating (the temperature is no longer rising), that high corresponds to 375 degrees F, medium high to 330 degrees, medium to 300 degrees, and low to about 275 degrees.
2 to 3 seconds: the fire is medium-high heat, about 375°F. 3 to 4 seconds: the fire is medium heat, about 350°F. 4 to 5 seconds: the fire is medium-low heat, about 325°F. 5 seconds or more: the fire is low heat, 300°F.

In an electric skillet, foods will heat to simmering at some point between the Warm setting and 200°. Heat the skillet at 350° until the food boils; then place cover on pan and reduce the heat to simmer level by turning the heat control down until the pilot light goes out.
