I am used to choose recipes from this site based always on reviewers. I wantd to try no fail crust pie but I was disappointed because I could not find the metric measurement on the page, I clicked every where but no way. I am used to this type of measurement especially for butter because where I live there are no butter sticks sold and no body likes shortning at home shortning. It would be grest if any one could help. Thank you

Hi; On this site there is a metric converter just go to recipe, then go to change recipe click then it gives you the option to convert the recipe to metric and eh voila.

yes, but sometimes with the new site it doesnt work for me. if that happens to you go to google and type in what you need, like "flour cups grams" (no quotes). I use this one too http://www.traditionaloven.com/conversions_of_measures/flour_volume_weight.html

If you click the blue "change servings" area you can choose US or metric. There has always been a problem on AR in some conversions since "2 cans of X".......is a non-standard amount and often won't convert correctly. It does work for items listed in standard units of measure. AR has never tried to standardize the way ingredients are shown so for some recipes this will always be an issue.
