Recipe Units

Choose the units you want as the defaults for this recipe. You can mix units of the same type by explicitly adding a units suffix when entering a number. For example, if the default for weight is pounds & ounces, you can enter 200 grams as "200g". See below for accepted suffixes.

When you switch units, quantities already entered will be converted to the new unit. The exception is those numbers entered with an explicit unit suffix (like "2.5oz"). To convert those numbers as well, check the following box:
