What are the most common cooking temperatures?

Typical cooking temperatures vary depending on the ingredients used:

  • Meats and fish range from 50°C (131°F) to 70°C (158°F).
  • Fruits and Vegetables are normally between 83°C (181.5°F) and 85°C (185°F) as this is the temperature at which pectin, the molecular 'glue' that holds cells together begins to break down.
  • Eggs typically cook at between 60°C (140°F) and 70°C (158°F) depending on your cooking preference.
