Baking Pan Sizes

The following charts show commonly used baking pans and dishes and the approximate volume. If you don’t have the same size pan called for in a specific recipe, and you want to substitute another pan, choose a pan with the same volume capacity.

cake pans and spatulaSince many pans may be imported from Europe or Asia, pan sizes are not always uniform. If your pan is not exactly the same measurement as shown below, a small difference in size should not affect the recipe or baking time.

If you have substituted a different pan that what is stated in a recipe, the baking time may need to change, especially for cakes and breads. If baked in a wider pan, the depth of the batter will decrease and the batter will bake more quickly. If baked in a narrower pan,the depth of the batter will increase and the batter will require a longer baking time.

 

To measure a pan and determine the pan’s volume:

  1. Baking pans are measured across the top, not the bottom.ruler
  2. To measure the pan’s size, use a ruler to measure a pan from inside edge to inside edge. Do not measure from the outside edges as you do not want to include the thickness of the pan in your measurement.
  3. Fluted pans, such as tart pans, are measured from the inside edge of one outer curve to the inside edge of the curve directly across from it.
  4. To measure the pan’s depth, place a ruler on the kitchen counter and measure straight up from the bottom of the pan. If the pan edge is slanted, do not slant the ruler, measure straight up.
  5. To measure the pan’s volume, use a liquid measuring cup to pour water into the pan until it reaches the top.
