With Kitchen Calculator PRO you can:
1.Quickly scale your recipes (add, subtract, multiply, divide) using fractions!
2.Convert ingredients from weight to volume, and vice versa ( cups to grams, ounces, etc. )
3.Supports several volume, weight, distance, and temperature conversions
4.Enter amounts and view results in standard cooking fractions (1/2, 1/3, etc )
5.Grow a database with your favorite ingredients! (see weight to volume )

***** Brilliant - "For a cook trained in the metric system, this tool is a dream come true" by BeeDiana.
SCALE YOUR RECIPES
Easily convert and scale recipes in an instant. Doubling a recipe (or cutting a recipe in half) is simpler than ever before, with all the most common units of cooking measurement right at your fingertips.
WEIGHT TO VOLUME CONVERSIONS
What is so special about weight to volume conversions?
When converting from weight to volume it is important to take into account the ingredient you are converting. As you know, a cup of sugar does not weigh the same as a cup of rice. Furthermore, a particular brand of sugar may weigh different from another. This is all made easy with Kitchen Calculator PRO.
So, how does Kitchen Calculator handle weight to volume conversions?
1.It comes with a database of common ingredients based on weight figures from the USDA (US Department of Agriculture).
2.It allows you to quickly enter and save your own ingredient weight for more precise conversions. In many cases, you can enter the values right off the product label, using fractions!
3.Kitchen Calculator will remember any saved ingredient information for future conversions.
NOTE: The preset ingredient list is based on USDA (US Department of Agriculture) figures and are approximate values. They may differ from the ingredients you use. For precise calculations we recommend entering the weights for your ingredients and, whenever possible using a scale.

Power and Efficiency in the Kitchen!
Have you ever found yourself in this situation: you have a great recipe, but it calls for the wrong number of people and you're going crazy trying to figure out the right amounts of ingredients to fit a particular number of servings. Or the recipe calls for units you're not particularly familiar with and you would like to use those units of measurements that work for you? Well now you can, with Kitchen Calculator Pro! It quickly scales recipes to the amounts you want, also using standard cooking fractions, and converts all kinds of units, including weight to volume! Did I mention that there's already a list of ingredients to select from and convert to the desired unit, and if the ingredient is not there you can add it? I've had experience with various converting apps, but this is by FAR the most POWERFUL and EFFICIENT app I've come across! The developer's name is Forward Leap. The name fits the app!!!
Worth every penny
I’ve used this app more times than I can remember, worth every penny. I tried several recipe converter apps that do simple standard conversions, but this app takes it a step further. By far the most useful features is the ability to convert grams to cups ( or other weight to volume conversions ) based on specific ingredients.. This makes the app priceless when using European cookbooks. You can also add your own ingredients and adjust existing ones, to make sure the weights match the ingredients you use. The app comes with a database loaded with standard ingredients and over time I’ve personalized it to the specific ingredients I use. This has saved me a considerable amount of time. Another useful feature of the app is the “scaling” feature, which lets you quickly adjust the number of servings.
Quite Accurate but One Nit Pick
I convert recipes from volume to weight quite frequently and save those conversions alongside the original amount in my recipe app (I use Paprika). I compared several of my conversions, which were done by scouring cookbooks and nutritional databases, and found this app dead on for just about everything.
The one change I would like to see is a way to check multiple ingredients with the same settings. In other words, if I'm converting a recipe, I don't want to have to keep selecting volume=cup, weight=grams, then choose the ingredient. Let me keep cups and grams selected and just change the ingredient.
