Baking Pan and Dish Volume Guide

Recipe Help Center


This handy chart provides some of the most commonly used baking dishes and pans and their volumes.

Refer to this chart when you don't have the exact baking dish or pan size needed called for in a recipe or when you want to adjust the shape of the baked good.

Always try to choose a baking dish or pan that has the same volume that's called for in the recipe you are making. The depth of the baking vessel can vary but a dramatic difference can cause issues. Too shallow a depth and the mixture may overflow. If the baking pan is too deep pastries may not brown properly or the sides of a cake make end up higher than the center.

This is really helpful! If the size you're looking for isn't here, you can always measure yourself by simply testing how many cups of water it takes to fill your pan/ dish.
