By default, American ovens and ranges are preprogrammed to be configured in units of Fahrenheit. However, because the standard unit used in the rest of the world to measure temperature is Celsius, most ovens can be set to this unit of measure. If you have purchased a oven that is set to Celsius or have accidentally set your oven to Celsius, you can quickly change it back to Fahrenheit with just a few steps.
