Recipe Scaling Keys
Use the keys below to “scale” recipes (when you’re cooking or baking for less or more than the recipe’s stated serving size, and have
to calculate adjusted ingredient quantities). Your calculator quickly
converts recipe ingredients to their proper proportions, so you can
cook or bake precisely and avoid measurement errors.
First, find the recipe’s stated number of servings or yield, and then
determine how many servings you need to make (if other than the
stated serving size). Use the keys below to enter the “stated” and
“desired” serving sizes (and/or portion sizes), enter each ingredient
quantity and press [Adjust Recipe] to convert each ingredient to its
new, adjusted quantity.
Note: You may prefer to write the new quantities on a piece of paper, or note them
next to the recipe’s ingredients, or simply measure new ingredient amounts as you
go.
[Recipe # Servings] — Recipe’s Number of
Servings
Enters the recipe’s stated number of servings.
[Actual # Servings] — Actual Number of Servings
Enters your desired number of servings.
[Conv] [Recipe # Servings] — Recipe’s Portion Size
Enters the recipe’s stated per person portion size.
[Conv] [Actual # Servings] — Actual Portion Size
Enters your desired per person portion size.
[Adjust Recipe] — Recipe Adjust
Calculates adjusted ingredient quantities based on entered # of Servings and/or Portion Size.
[Rcl] [Adjust Recipe] — Recipe Scale Factor
Displays the ratio used for adjusting ingredients.
Note: Values entered in Recipe Scaling Keys are stored permanently, so use [Conv]
[x] to clear them prior to entering a new problem. Also, to review stored values, press
[Rcl] and the applicable key. For example, to review your stored Recipe’s Number of
Servings, press [Rcl] [Recipe # Servings]. To review your stored Recipe’s Portion Size,
press [Rcl] [Conv] [Recipe # Servings]).

ENTERING COOKING UNITS (WHOLE AND FRACTIONS)
Enter whole cooking units by entering: 1) the quantity and 2) pressing the appropriate cooking unit key. For example:
Enter 3 tablespoons:
Keystroke
3 [tbsp]
Display
3 TBSP
Enter cooking units with fractions (e.g., 1/3 cup) by pressing the
fraction [/] key. For example:
Enter 2-1/3 cups:
Keystroke
2 1 [/] 3 [cup]
Display
2-1/3 CUP
You can also enter the whole unit first, then the cooking unit key,
then the fraction. For example:
Enter 2-1/3 cups:
Keystroke
2 [cup] 1 [/] 3
Display
2-1/3 CUP
BASIC MATH WITH COOKING UNITS
You can perform basic math with cooking units. For example:

Note: The results of math calculations will be shown as actual, not rounded, “kitchenfractions” (see following section for more details).
DISPLAYING ACTUAL FRACTIONS VS. “KITCHEN FRACTIONS”
A unique feature of your calculator is that it will display both actual
fractions and “kitchen fractions” during conversions or recipe scaling calculations. That is, if the answer is 3/4 TBSP, it knows there is
no “3/4” of a tablespoon, or measuring spoon, available to measure
with; instead, it will show the rounded answer (i.e., 1 TBSP). For
more precise measuring, you can then press the [Conv] [/] keys to
display the remainder amount to add or subtract, or simply convert
the value to the next lowest cooking unit (e.g., TSP), to avoid the
remainder altogether.
“Kitchen Fractions,” or whole units or fractions displayed in recipe
scaling calculations or conversions, include:

COOKING UNIT CONVERSIONS
Converting cooking or other weight/volume unit measurements is
quick and easy. To convert cooking units, enter the quantity, press
the cooking unit key/label, and then press the convert [Conv] key.
To enter fractions (e.g., 1/2 cup), use the fraction [/] key.
Also, some units (like gallons) don’t have dedicated keys, but are
second functions of primary keys. These are color-labeled over
various number/digit or other keys. They can be accessed using the
[Conv] key.
Note: It is incorrect to convert volumes to weights and vice versa (weights vary, e.g.,
a cup of flour weighs less than a cup of water); thus, the calculator will not allow you
to do so. The calculator will display an error and the word “Sorry” if this occurs.
Follow the examples below:
Convert 1-1/2 tsp. to tbsp.:
Keystroke

Display
0-1/3 CUP
0.333 CUP
0-1/3 CUP
Note: If the value entered is not a “kitchen fraction” (e.g., 1/3 TBSP), the next press of
the cooking unit key (e.g., [Tbsp]) will display the rounded “kitchen value” (e.g., 0-1/2
TBSP) and a third press will display the actual decimal value (e.g., 0.333 TBSP).
TEMPERATURE CONVERSIONS
Your calculator will also convert Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures. Again, use the [Conv] key. See examples below:
Convert 30° Celsius to Fahrenheit:
Keystroke

RECIPE SCALING EXAMPLES
One of the most useful features of the KitchenCalc Pro is its ability to
adjust or automatically scale recipes. It calculates new ingredient
amounts when you change the number of servings a recipe makes
(e.g., when you want it to serve 10 people instead of only 4). This
allows you to cook or bake with precision by measuring the correct
ingredient quantities.
The KitchenCalc Pro also lets you adjust ingredients when you
change a recipe’s portion size (e.g., if you want to serve 4 oz. portions for each person, instead of 6 oz.).
See the following examples.
CHANGING THE NUMBER OF SERVINGS
Basic Example
You’d like to make 5 servings of instant brown rice, but the box only
lists a measuring chart for 4 servings (add 2 cups of rice and 1-3/4
cups of water). How much rice and water do you need for five servings?

ERRORS
When an incorrect attempt to convert between liquid measures, dry measures, or temperature occurs, the calculator will display the word “Sorry” for a
few seconds before showing the initial value on the dis play. If an error is displayed, press any key.
RESET
If your calculator’s display should ever freeze, or “lock up,” press Reset—a
small hole located to the right of the [On/C] key—using the end of a paper
clip.
ACCURACY
Each calculation is carried out internally to 10 digits.
AUTO SHUT-OFF & BATTERY
Auto Shut-Off: After 11 min. of non-use, except when in timer mode (see
page 12 for details).
Battery Included: One CR-2032 (3-Volt Lithium).
Battery-Life (Average Use of Calculator & Timer): 1,975 hours
REPLACING THE BATTERY
To replace the battery, use a small Phillip’s head screwdriver (or you can
also use a screwdriver found in eyeglass repair kits) and unscrew the two
screws on the base of the unit, located on the back of the calculator. Carefully remove the lower back housing, remove the old battery from the clip and
replace it with a new CR-2032 battery. Make sure the positive side (+) is facing up. Replace the backplate and re-attach the screws.
Note: Replacement CR-2032 batteries are available at most discount or electronics stores. Or, call Calculated Industries at 1-800-854-8075.
