What are French Bread Pans Used For?

French Bread

French bread pans are used for making baguettes and will sometimes be called baguette pans. A French bread pan will typically be made out of metal or aluminum. An important feature of a French bread pan is perforation along the entire pan which allows steam to escape during the baking process and yields a crispy and brown baguette. A French bread pan may have three to five compartments for bulk baking. A baguette is usually 18 inches or 24 inches long. Depending on which length you are intending to make, you'll need to buy the corresponding pan length.

Pros and Cons of French Bread Pans

French bread pans are perfect for baguettes! But on the versatility side, they can't be used for much more than that. In spite of their one-purpose use, the French bread pan is a favorite because it helps make superior baguettes.

Pros

  1. Even baking
  2. Golden crust
  3. A sure-fire way to make the perfect baguette

Cons

  1. Only used for making baguettes
  2. Multiple French bread pans needed to maximize on your oven space
