Pink Recipe Box Printable Conversion Charts Chapter Three: Pan Sizes

Printable Conversion Chart Series – Chapter Three: Pan Size Conversions

We’re into the third week of the Pink Recipe Box Conversion Chart Series and I’m already running off track! Today I’m sharing with you some very useful info about pan size conversions, but this time it’s not in the form of a printable – it’s in a regular ol’ chart.

Since the pan size conversions are spread amongst so many different types of pan sizes – Who knew there were at least eight different types of baking pans?! It makes my collection look meagre by comparison! – I thought it was a bit silly to combine all this info into one printable.

Whilst you might frequently look at a Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion chart or a teaspoons and tablespoons to cups conversion chart sufficiently to warrant sticking it on the fridge, I think you’ll only use this conversion chart every now and again. So instead of printing out the information and placing it in your kitchen, I recommend pinning this page or bookmarking it so you can come back to it when you need to.

Pink Recipe Box Printable Conversion Charts Chapter Three: Pan Sizes

This pan size conversion chart is useful in a number of ways:

  1. First off, the whole US/Europe thing. This chart includes size conversions for inches to cm to cups to ml, so however you’re measuring, you’ll still be able to use it.
  2. If the recipe you’re following doesn’t say which pan size to use, you’ll be able to figure it out by working out how many cups of batter you have and looking at the chart.
  3. If you don’t have the recommended pan size for the recipe, you can check the chart to see what other pan sizes or shapes will work.

That’s about all I’ve got right now. I usually write my blog posts the night before they’re published, but I was absolutely exhausted yesterday and went to bed at 9.30pm, so I’m currently writing this blog post at 6.30am on the publishing day, when my posts are usually published at 6am! So sorry if some of this sounds weird, but my brain is actually writing it before I’ve even woken up.

  1. Thanks. I was just reading a recipe that was part metric, part American measures. Now I’ll be able to find out metric equals.
    Glad I found you from Show Me What Ya Got.
