NOTE: I am working on improving the cans measurements, so please don’t use the conversions to and from cans at the moment. Everything else is fully functional!
How to Use this Beans Conversion Calculator
Simply enter a number into the Input box, select the measurement you are using, and the program will automatically calculate converted values.
Note: US imperial system is used for these measurements (ie. 1 cup = 237 mL, 1 can = 15 oz). Data sourced from USDA FoodData Central where possible, or else from my personal experience.
How to Cook Dried Beans
When cooking from dried, I recommend a 1:4 ratio of beans to water (by volume) for cooking on the stove-top, and a 1:3 ratio for cooking in the Instant Pot.
For Instant Pot cooking, if you are using unsoaked beans, I would use the BEANS/CHILI setting on MORE mode (40 minutes at high pressure). If you are using pre-soaked beans, use the BEANS/CHILI setting on NORMAL mode (30 minutes at high pressure). The exception is small beans such as mung beans and adzuki beans, which can be cooked without soaking using the BEANS/CHILI setting on LESS mode (25 minutes at high pressure).
