Wow - a REAL bread pan! Nice weight to it, makes me feel like a professional (even though I'm not...)! Almost nothing sticks to it - such easy clean-up. Makes the loaf nice and square so it fits into the toaster. I am thinking about replacinjg some of my other baking pans with comparable USA Pan products, if they are available. Makes baking bread or other loaves even more fun and satisfying.

My brand new Pullman pan was in the oven within 24 hours of its arrival.
It's a loaf pan that really means business; substantial, lightly ridged with an easy sliding cover. It feels like it will last forever. I made my usual 2 X 1.5 lb white bread recipe and filled the pan with about 2/3 of the dough. Let it rise with the lid almost closed, (had to keep peeking), to almost full. Popped it into a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes then, with trepidation, I slid off the top (it came off like a dream) and left it uncovered to top brown for an additional 10 minutes. The loaf almost leapt out of the pan (no oil or butter) and was perfect; filling all the corners exactly right. The crust was thin and light - perfect for sandwiches.
The 13" pan makes a pretty big loaf so after cooling, I sliced it in two and popped one half, in a heavy-duty freezer bag, into the freezer.
Next... whole grain sandwich loaf. I love my USA Pans Pullman loaf pan.

Got the pan three days ago, baked two perfect pain de mie, used the recipe they provided but skipped the poudered milk and used 1Tbs of sugar instead of three. Result? Perfect fluffy bread! Kids love it!
The quality of the pan is impecable. I greased it with a bit of oil and the bread came out of it perfectly. I highly recommend this pan!
