Pan and Casserole Dishes
How To Convert Your Baking Dishes
Pan and Casserole Dishes can vary. Convert your dishes when your recipe calls for a size of pan you don't have.
When you are cooking or baking and the recipe is in metric and your pan size isn't, here's how to convert your baking pans or casserole dishes from the size you have to metric...or vice versa.
8x8 inch = 20x20 cm square
9x9 inch = 22x22 cm square
9x13 inch = 22x33 cm rectangular
11x17 inch = 28x43 cm rectangular
8x2 inch = 20x5 cm round
9x2 inch = 22x5 cm round
10x4 1/2 inch = 25x11 cm tube
8x4x3 inch = 20x10x7 cm loaf
9x5x3 inch = 22x12x7 cm loaf

(If 3 major world powers can’t agree on the size of pan and casserole dishes, is it any wonder there isn’t world peace?)
Never mind, go back to your baking and know that when you share your freshly baked loaf of bread (Mmmm...) or piping hot family favourite casserole with your friends or new neighbour, you are probably doing more for world peace than all the leaders of the all world powers put together.
