This infographic shows how to measure a pan or a pot to get the exact dimensions. Measure depth or pour pre-measured cups of water into a pan or pot to know the capacity.

The no-fret guide to pan conversions shows you exactly how to swap out baking dishes for trays and pans, bundt pan or tube pan, so even if you don’t have the exact pan for a recipe, you can adapt your ingredient amounts and cooking times to get the perfect results.
