Updated on November 8, 2011

If you love bread making, then you'll need a good quality set of bread pans.

You can make bread without a loaf pan - especially if you enjoy artisan bread making. But - if you love a loaf, then you can't get by without a bread pan or two.

They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and any one will help you shape and create wonderful loaves and rounds of home baked bread.

Used in conjunction with a baking stone - for better heat distribution - any one of the selection from Amazon will improve and enhance the results of a few hours kneading and creating bread.

Some are highly prized and recommended - another plus with Amazon. Reading through customer reviews is certainly ever helpful.

Develop you're home baking skills - bread pans make better bread!

A set of bread pans - or a singular loaf pan - will make all the difference when it come's to baking bread.

A good quality pan promotes browning and allows the loaf to develop a wonderful, inner texture, with a crispier, lighter crust.

Therefore if you're looking to improve your bread making techniques, a little investment is the order of the day.

Amazon have a wide variety of bread making equipment available for purchase and you won't fail to find the perfect bread pan.

You can choose from among:

  • mini bread pans
  • large bread pan
  • french loaf pan
  • bread pan sets
  • and more

There's also bread recipe books, as well as various other bread making equipment, such as a dough scraper and bread baskets.

They feature high on Amazon's best seller list in general and they're a trusted brand name.

The best bread pans belong to the Chicago stable, the top seller being the Chicago Metallic Professional Nonstick Perforated Baguette Pan.

It comes with rave reviews and, like their other products, it's crafted to withstand a professional kitchen environment.

If you're looking to purchase top quality, well crafted and professional bread making bakeware, then you won't have to look further than this trusted brand name.

A set of mini loaf pans will turn out evenly baked small loaves - great for those that prefer a fresh baked loaf that's petite and consumed whilst still fresh.

They're a versatile bread pan and can be used for a variety of reasons: fruit loaves, sweet loaves, standard loaves or to bake and give as gifts to family and friends.

You can purchase both single mini bread pans or pans that have the capacity to bake four or more at a time.

These are great for baking and freezing, or can be used to bake different bread recipes.

Tea loaves are a big favorite with many and a mini pan will help you create deliciously sweet and tasty loaves over and again.

The best seller on Amazon is the Baker's Secret Basics Nonstick Petite Loaf Pan, which is an eight loaf pan - allowing for a variety of different loaves.

Once your loaves are ready, allow them to cool on the best selling cooling rack - featured right. Also great for cookies, cupcakes and more.

A cast iron bread pan is a favorite with both professional bakers and home cooks alike. Heavy hitters, durable and reliable, a cast iron pan will last for years to come.

Both bread pans featured on the left are pre-seasoned, which will allow you to simply purchase and put straight to use.

A large bread pan is good for those that have a large family or enjoy making pan breads.

They're also good for pound cakes, though with both the bread and cake recipe - make sure you alter the quantities.

There's nothing more delicious than a large sliced loaf, freshly baked, toasted or otherwise and the only way to turn out great results is by way of using a larger bread pan.

The best selling pan is the Amco Food Service Pullman Pan, though Amazon have a good selection of other larger sized bread pans available.

A french bread pan is designed purely for baking french loaves and baguettes.

French bread can be difficult to master, due to its size and length. Often, when cooked straight on top of a baking stone, the bread will lack shape and turn out semi flat.

Dedicated baguette pans prevent flattening and spreading and promote well rounded, correctly shaped baguettes.

The best selling has already been featured - the Chicago Metallic Perforated Non-Stick. However, the second best seller is the Fox Run 18 Inch x 2.75 Inch, shown top left.
