Learning a new language is a time-consuming process. In my case, learning Spanish this year has proven to be almost painful. Fortunately, it’s not so difficult (or painful)to get your software to start talking “metric.” Just follow these simple steps.
1. Click on “Reference” in the top menu bar, and then click “Measures” in the submenu. Delete any measures you don’t want to use, EXCEPT for “ounce” and “teaspoon”. Advantage Cooking needs both the ounce and teaspoon measures to perform calculations and conversions.
2. Click on the “+” symbol to add an entry which will connect grams to ounces:
Equivalent Amount: 0.0353
Equivalent Measure: ounce
3. Click on the “+” symbol to add an entry which will connect milliliters to teaspoons:
Description: mL (or ml, or milliliter)
Equivalent Amount: 0.20
Equivalent Measure: teaspoons
Note: a more accurate conversion would be 1 liter = 202.88 teaspoons.
4. Add any other measures you might use in recipes. For example:
Equivalent Amount: 1000
Equivalent Measure: mL (or milliliter, etc.)
Es muy fácil, ¿no? (Pretty easy, huh?)
