Cooking, density

I am just getting started with a bread machine, and like to convert recipes to metric weight from cups and tespoons, etc. I have found convert-me very useful to make my own conversion tables in a spreadsheet.

The final column in my table for each food is density, calculated from one of your volumes in ml and weight in grams. From this I can convert individual recipes from cook books easily.

However, it would all be much easier if you would just show a table of foods with their densities. Then it would be easier to convert any volume, be it a bushel or a peck, into a weight.

It could even just be shown in your list of foods below the calculator - Water (1), Strawberries (0.64), Oil, Olive (0.91). Then there would be no need for your user to enter anything into boxes.

Density is already there, although it isn't labeled as such.

Find a food product, such as olive oil. Enter 1 on the line adjacent to liter and click calculate. As specific gravity can be expressed as kg/L, the density is equal to kilograms.

Were you able to find what you were looking for? I just got a new bread machine and saw your post so thought I would ask you if the converter on this site adequately worked for you or if you had to go to another. If you went to another would you care to share it so that I can check it out?
