What is the best bread pan?

To choose the best bread pan you should consider what kind of bread you want to bake. For a free-form bread, all you need is the Baking Tray and a bowl of water at the bottom of the oven to steam your bread. Steaming is the process by which the water in the bowl evaporates and condenses on the skin of the dough, allowing the egg whites to coagulate and the starch to gelatinize. This gives your bread a crispy crust. A bread pan is therefore not necessary in all cases, but it is immensely useful when using a lid because the water condenses on it. A danger with free-form breads can be that the bread burns from the top or does not form a nice crust.

Another issue is the quality of your bread pan: if it's not of good quality, you may not be able to bake good bread. Some molds cannot even withstand temperatures from 250°C, so you should always pay attention to what temperature the mold you choose is designed for. If the temperature is too high, the coating, the paint or the plastic of cheap bread molds may peel off.

Your bread pan must fit in your oven. It should also be multifunctional and not just to be used in the oven, for example, it should also be suitable for use in the embers or over the fire, so that you can bake your bread outdoors in good weather. Being able to prepare more than one type of pastry in it is also important, because otherwise you will have 10 different molds instead of three, with which you can prepare a variety of dishes.

The mold must be able to withstand high temperatures as well as retain heat. Since your bread dough should be placed in a mold preheated in the oven, the material you use is very important. Cast iron, for example, retains heat very well and for a long time.

The baking form should also be easy to clean. A cumbersome scraping off of dough residues is not only time-consuming, but also damages the mold.

Most baking forms differ either by their material or their application.
There are the following baking forms:

  • Baking Tray
  • Baking pans
  • Baguette Pan
  • Loaf pan
  • Bread roll form
  • Brownie mold
  • Ring Cake Pan 
  • Motif moulds (heart, Easter lamb)
  • Springform Pan
  • Madeleine Pan
  • Muffin Tin
  • Chocolate mold
  • Quiche dish
  • Silicone mold
  • and many more

Can you bake bread in a baking dish?

The Loaf Pans k4 to k12 are perfectly suitable for baking bread. The advantage is that they have a lid and therefore the moisture can condense on it. The situation is different for baking dishes without lids - the bread can burn from above. The baking dish must not be completely filled, since the dough may rise and spill over the edge of the dish. You also need to put a bowl of water in the baking dish allowing the bread to steam, which means that the water in the bowl evaporates and condenses on the skin of the dough, allowing the egg whites to coagulate and the starch to gelatinize. This gives your bread a crispy crust.

All ceramic or porcelain baking dishes should have a high rim and be well greased. Alternatively, you could also bake your bread in the Dutch Oven, for example in the Dutch Oven ft9. The lid offers the same advantages as the Loaf Pan.

In summary, you can certainly bake bread in a baking dish, but the lack of a lid is a disadvantage and baking in a baking dish will only ever be an emergency solution. Therefore, it is better to get a cast-iron Loaf Pan with a lid, because in it not only the casserole, but also the bread will turn out perfectly.
