When I need to convert units when cooking, it's not something I'm going to be able to do in my head. Ever. Ergo, it is handy to have a helper just waiting to do my bidding. I have no idea where or how I found this app, but I use it enough to rate it as "Worth the $".

My Rating: Worth the $
In addition to the ability to convert by weight, volume, temperature and dimension, there is a calculator (+/-), a quick start guide (?) and a settings button (check mark), which allows you to select US or UK units.
Note: the vendor has a new(ish) app: Kitchen Calculator Pro that includes the ability to:
- scale recipes;
- convert ingredients from weight to volume (cups to grams, ounces, etc.)
- display results in standard cooking fractions
- 'grow' a database of ingredients, based on the built-in database of common ingredients from the USDA.
