Pesky fractions are no match for Kitchen Calc

Kitchen Calc

Finding a recipe that looks interesting is usually just a starting point. The personal embellishments and preferences of the actual cook making the meal always trump what’s written down. Sometimes however, you want to follow a recipe exactly. Whether it be for reasons of taste or ratios, that recipe usually needs to be scaled up or down.

The Kitchen Calc works in units common to the kitchen such as fractions, Celsius and Fahrenheit. The handheld calculator converts cooking volume units and also units of weight. Even dash and pinch are represented. Of course, while the Kitchen Calc may handle those pesky fractions, it also works as a standard calculator too.
