Oven Temperature Conversions

I’ve noticed that American recipes often refer to a “hot oven” or “warm oven”. Call me pedantic (pedantic), but I need something more specific (least I’m left with an undercooked chook). Here’s a good guide to Centigrade, Farenheit and the more vague settings:

Description °F °C
Cool oven 200 °F 90 °C
Very Slow oven 250 °F 120 °C
Slow oven 300–325 °F 150–160 °C
Moderately Slow 325–350 °F 160–180 °C
Moderate oven 350–375 °F 180–190 °C
Moderately Hot 375–400 °F 190–200 °C
Hot oven 400–450 °F 200–230 °C
Very Hot oven 450–500 °F 230–260 °C
Fast oven 450–500 °F 230–260 °
