I love this: bakery-grade bread pans

Sometimes it's nice to buy really good, really expensive kitchen equipment if you are going to use it a lot. I bake my own bread, so I shelled out $15 apiece for heavy steel bread pans that create an unparalleled crust. I could have gotten glass pans for less than half the price, but these space-saving stackable bakery pans are easier to store and just make better bread.

I saved my old glass pan so that I can still bake quick breads like banana bread and pumpkin loaf (I'd rather not develop a crust on sweet breads), but having a total of four pans means I can bake in bulk without having to hand-shape loaves on a cookie sheet.

Right now my freezer is full of whole wheat and oatmeal molasses bread, and this afternoon I'll make a crusty white sandwich loaf. Worth the $45 for nice pans, I think!


  1. What's this "baking" thing you speak of? I thought all food came from restaurants?

  2. Hi, there! I made it here from a comment you left on my blog. I see that you are from LA- we're neighbors! Hope you have a speedy recovery. I know how frustrating being sidelined is! Just remember, it's TEMPORARY!

  3. Oooooooh, the feeling of new kitchen stuff! Enjoy! ;) Kristen
