Baking Pan Size Conversion

I occasionally have to get out my calculator to figure out what size pans to use. I've finally wised up and written it down - thought I'd share....

Janet, that is a VERY useful tool. Is there any way to make it larger? I can't get it to zoom much on my screen. Am I just being stupid?

Smooch! I didn't see the PDF. Much better! I might actually print that baby and put it up in the cabinet for easy reference.

I think DCers could start adding temperature ranges for the different pan sizes.

Thanks, Janet! That is very close to the chart I have - made partly on my own, and from other sites. I have printed this.

As for temperature changes, I find that if I go beyond 10 inches round and/or 2 inches deep (some of my cakes are 3) I drop the temp to 325 F otherwise it is at 350 F for most baking.

I'm currently on a mission to gather up all the baking related maths, calculators and guides and stick it in one place:

Sugar and Crumbs - Your baking community

If it's not a problem I may expand upon the baking tin capacity guide to include the information you've collected in your pdf?

I am making a corn pudding to bring to a friends house for Thanksgiving. The recipe calls for a 1 1/2 quart dish to bake it in. i am doubling the recipe. I think i can use a 9x13 pan. Think this will work?
