This 13"x4" heavy gauge aluminized steel covered Pullman loaf pan produces a uniform sandwich bread with a thin crust. The closed cover keeps air from touching the dough while rising and baking, and results in an mostly crustless loaf with a tight-grained texture. Fluting on all sides improves heat distribution and pan strength. A natural silicone nonstick coating keeps your crust on the loaf, not the pan. This loaf pan is also useful for molded desserts, pates, and terrines. Perfect for pound cake! Made in America. 65% recycled steel.
