Beans Conversion Calculator (Dried vs Cooked vs Canned)

This beans conversion calculator provides measurement conversions between cooked and dried, cups, ounces, grams, and cans. It also converts between the volumes and weights of dried and cooked (canned) beans.

For dried beans, I recommend a 1:4 ratio of beans to water for cooking. (For example, if I’m cooking one cup of dried beans, I’ll rinse them thoroughly, soak them in 2 cups of water for 12-24 hours, then dump all the beans and soaking water into a cooking pot, then add 2 more cups of water and cook, covered.)

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 from USDA FoodData Central where possible, or else from my personal experience.
