Baking pan volume

randyjl Jun 8, 2013 11:05 AM

Does anyone have a chart that shows how many quarts are in various baking pan sizes? I have recipes that say butter a X quart pan, but I don't have a clue.

        You don't need a calculator. Just fill the pan with water, then measure the volume using a measuring cup. I do this all the time.

          Absolutely -- low-tech, but it works every time, no matter what.

              Guess my Googling skills are not up to snuff. I only found one answer. I guess I was asking about quarts to pan size?

                I guess smarts don't come equal to each, sorry!
