Whether you need to know the part of the cow the brisket comes from, how many grams are in an ounce, how long to steam an artichoke, or how long fish keeps in the freezer, this graphic can tell you. Dubbed the “ultimate kitchen cheat sheet”, it’s packed with conversions, butcher’s charts, food safety info and more.

The whole chart includes weight and measurement conversions, butcher’s cuts, meat roasting times by weight (although we still think that temperature is a better way to measure doneness), cooking times for vegetables and grains, some handy food storage tips (like the best way to stack your fridge and the temperature you should keep it at to keep everything fresh as long as possible), and some guidelines for how long that food will stay good in the fridge and freezer.
