# 10 can

I found your conversion of gallon to # 10 can.  I can not get one # 10 can to fill a gallon. Are there any other # 10 can that I do not know about? I use # 10 cans in a kitchen.
Thanks!

The #10 cans are the great big cans, like the kind restaurants use.

You are probably thinking of the #2.5 cans which are the smaller cans like you find at the grocery store.

The #10 can does hold a U.S. gallon of liquid.

No, I mean it. I tried to fill a # 10 can with one gallon of water and the can over-flowed. I work in a kitchen. So I searched alittle and found these sites:
http://www.amescompany.com/CAN_SIZES.htm
http://web.singnet.com.sg/~dan123/cansizes.htm
I also found the following:
Can Size                    Approx. Wt.                  Cupfuls
6 oz                          6 oz                            ¾
8 oz                          8 oz                             1
No. 1                        10-12 oz                      1¼ to 1½
No. 300                     14-16 oz                      1¾
No. 1½ or 303            1 lb.- 17 oz                   2
No. 2                         1 lb.4oz or 1 pt 2 fl oz     2½

No. 3 cylinder or 46oz   3 lb.3oz or 1 qt.14oz       5¾
No. 10                        6 lb.2oz to 7 lbs.5oz       12 to 13
and...
Can Size - Appx net weight or fluid measure - Appx cups per can

No. 10....................6lb - 7lb..............9 - 12
No. 5 squat.............4 lb - 4 1/4lb.......8
No. 3 Cyl.................46 - 51 fl. oz.......5 3/4
No. 2 1/2.................26 - 30oz.............3 1/2
No. 2.......................18 - 20 fl. oz........2 1/2
No. 303....................1 lb.....................2
No. 300....................14 - 16oz.............1 3/4
No. 1 (Picnic)...........10 1/2oz..............1 1/4

Recipe



Notes: When substituting one can for another size,
one No. 10 can is approximately equivalent to:

7 of #303 (1 lb) cans
5 of #2 (1lb 4oz) cans
4 of #2 1/2 (1 lb 13oz) cans
2 of #3 (46 - 50oz) cans

Size #      Weight      Cups      Servings
1/4      4 oz       1/2      1
3/8      6 oz       3/4      1
1/2      8 oz      1      2
1 picnic      10 1/2      1 1/4      2 to 3
211      12 oz      1 1/2      3 to 4
300      13 1/2 oz      1 3/4 to 2      3 to 4
303      15 1/2 oz      2      4
2      20 oz      2 1/2      5
2 1/2      28 1/2 oz      3 1/2      7
3      33 1/2 oz      4 1/4      8
3 cylinder      46 oz      5 3/4      10 to 12
5      56 oz      7      14
10      103 1/2 oz      13      25
 
So I have found that there are ALOT of different sizes of # 10 cans:)
