Bread & Loaf Pans

Stock up on new bread and loaf pans to bake the best artisanal and homestyle bread. You may have heard the saying that “baking is a science.” It’s true. Proper pans are part of the necessary lab equipment if you want to be master of the dough. You get the best results from sweetbread and artisan recipes when you have the correct weight, size and shape of bread pan. Experts recommend that you weigh rather than measure your ingredients before mixing up the batter or dough in one of your ceramic mixing bowls. Next, choose and prepare the right pan to get the outer crust and inner texture you desire.

At Williams Sonoma, we offer bread and loaf pans for a variety of bread. Nordic pans are the classic decorative cake pans. Create sweetbread loaves that are works of art with these pans. If you’re into plainer fare, the simplest baguette recipes require only four ingredients: flour, yeast, salt and water. Our simple baguette pans let you cook up two or three loaves at a time. Perforations along each loaf section ensure even baking so your baguettes have that crispy crust outside and chewy goodness inside. Plain rectangular loaf pans are available in materials including nonstick metal, ceramic, silicone and glass. Cloches for artisan and loaf bread are offered in clay and ceramic. Mini loaf pans are ideal for making lunch items including individual meatloaf, baked macaroni and cheese. and small bread loaves for a soup or salad accompaniment.

Give your baking sessions a boost with copper tools like shiny copper measuring cups, oil shakers and more. Copper bowls are superb for conducting heat to keep dough proofing right along. Achieve legendary status with your meringue and whipped cream when you have a solid copper bowl and a copper whisk. Copper graters, juicers and cruets help you add just the right amount of flavoring to quick bread and all sorts of baked goods. Use cooling racks made of copper after removing bread from loaf pans to help loaves cool slowly and evenly.

Expand your bread-baking horizons by ordering a brioche pan or mini brioche pan. Use these pans to experiment with panettone, raisin and other sweetbread recipes. Remember to use proofing supplies like baskets, bowls and covered proofing pots. Most bread needs a period of rest in a warm spot to rise to their full potential in the oven, so proofing equipment is essential for bread-making success. Covered bread pans help seal in moisture and flavor in baking loaves, which can be helpful in some ovens and environments. Choose colorful and professional-style bread pans for all of your bread creations.
