Another pan for artisan breads,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Swift Faringdon Collection Bakers Pride Non-Stick French Bread Pan Carbon Steel 39 cm x 16 cm x 2.5 cm (Kitchen & Home)
This is the second one of these I have bought having had success with one and wanting to bake more than two loaves at a time. Batons, proved on this bread pan forms little dimples on the base, much like commercially produced loaves and can form a lovely crust on the top if you prepare the dough well and add a bit of steam to the bake by throwing a cup of cold water onto a hot baking tray at the base of the oven, when you put your bread in to cook. Obviously, the key thing is to prepare the dough well - I usually do it 24 hours in advance and keep it in a bowl in the fridge with a light covering of olive oil and sealed with cling-film. Apologies for seeming to turn this review into a semi cookery lesson, but the point is that these pans are great if you make the right dough and then the results are impressive: other containers such as banetons and ordinary baking tins, are good too; this one is just different, but definitely worth getting if you enjoy making different kinds of artisan bread.
