For home bakers and commercial bakers alike, silicone loaf pans are the best way to ensure a completely non-stick loaf of bread.

Pros:

  • Provides a totally non-stick baking surface
  • Evenly distributes heat to prevent charring
  • Cools quickly once removed from heat

 Cons:

  • Flexible material may cause bread to crack once removed from oven
  • More expensive than traditional aluminum pans

Our Expert Advice:
This pan is great for the home baker who bakes a loaf of bread every so often but not multiple loaves a day. These pans can get expensive when several pans are required. The pans do also need to be handled with care so as not to bend or crack the loaf within. For the commercial baker, traditional aluminum pans are suggested.



Metal Loaf Pans


This is the traditional type of bread loaf pan used both in the home and in the commercial kitchen.
Pros:
  • Less expensive than silicone
  • Provides more consistency in baked goods
  • Easy to maneuver and handle without damaging bread

Cons:

  • Retains heat long after removed from the oven
  • May rust or stain over time
  • Requires pre-greasing each time for baked goods not to stick

Our Expert Advice:
Traditional bread loaf pans made of metal, such as aluminum, are ideal for the commercial baker. Professional bakers will likely go through many of these pans in a typical day, baking several loaves at a time. These require greasing but provide more consistency in baking results when the oven temperature is consistent and properly calibrated.
