About the Redesign

If you visited this site prior to September 15th, 2018, you've no doubt noticed that I've since launched a complete redesign of the website.

If you're not happy with the new design, I sincerely apologize. I would have preferred to keep the old desktop design, but considering the majority of my site's users are now accessing the site from small-screen, touch-enabled, mobile devices, and considering Google is now penalizing websites for not being mobile/thumb friendly, I was left with no choice but to switch to a responsive, mobile-first design.

The good news is that now that I have combined the three separate versions of the site (mobile, desktop, and ad-free member) into a single design, this will free up a ton of my time for working to make the mobile-optimized calculators more desktop/laptop friendly. In fact, some of the redesigned calculators already offer a desktop-optimized form that becomes visible when you increase the width setting of the calculator (within the "Calculator Preferences" expandable panel).

Thank you in advance for your help and patience as I work to improve the redesign.

Recipe Conversion Calculator Sign

Recipe Conversion Calculator

This online recipe scaler will adjust a recipe's ingredients to accommodate a greater or lesser number of servings, or to scale from one baking pan size and shape to another. You can either paste-in the recipe's ingredients all at once, or you can enter each ingredient line-by-line. Includes four methods of setting the conversion factor (number of servings, scale, original pan size to new pan size, or manual entry), plus provides a printer friendly page for printing out the recipe conversions. The printed report includes a column that lists the original quantities, and an optional column showing the metric equivalents. The Tools tab includes a cooking measurement conversion chart and two kitchen unit of measurement converters.

Optional: Paste In Recipe Ingredients:

If you are able to copy the recipe ingredients and paste them into the large field in this section, the calculator will attempt to load the ingredients and measurements into the conversion form for you (hopefully saving you time).

The calculator expects the pasted ingredients to be whole-number fraction unit description, with a space in between each, and a new line for each ingredient. Also, the first character on each line must be numeric, so precede decimal points with a zero (enter .5 as 0.5).

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs.

Be sure to check/edit the formatting before clicking the Load Ingredients Into Form button. When ready, click the button and then edit the loaded ingredients as needed.
