Gluten-free Bread Pan from King Arthur Flour

Many of you have probably tried the amazing gluten-free mixes from King Arthur Flour by now. My favorites in the line are the brownie mix, devil’s food cake mix and pancake mix. I didn’t care for the muffin mix due to the nutmeg flavor in it and I haven’t yet tried the pizza crust or bread mix. Nor do I plan to because I have no desire to make my own pizza crust or yeast bread these days.

When the King Arthur Flour holiday catalog arrived last Fall, I was a little annoyed because I assumed there was nothing in it that I could use. Not only were all the gluten-free mixes listed in the catalog, they even had a gluten-free bread pan for sale.  Needless to say, when I got the chance to try out the pan in exchange for a review of it, I was quite pleased.

The unique pan arrived just about the time our world got crazy with holiday parties, activities and family visits. Therefore, it was a while before I got around to making bread in it. My favorite types of breads to make are the easy kind. In other words, I tend to stick to quick breads so I made blueberry bread in the gluten-free loaf pan.

The pan is narrower than standard bread pans, kind of forcing the bread to rise for a more “normal” looking loaf. It didn’t look very different from quick breads I’ve made in regular bread pans, but I think yeast bread would work very well in the narrow pan. In addition to being a different shape than other bread pans, it’s super heave duty. It’s so well made that I doubt it will ever wear out. I’m not a bread pan aficionado by any stretch, but I’ve never seen a better quality bread pan (or baking pan for that matter) anywhere.

More about this wonderful pan from the King Arthur Flour website:

  • This eco-friendly and easy to clean pan is manufactured from a mix of 65% recycled steel for strength and durability, and aluminum for superior conductivity.
  • Pan is coated with Americoat, a clear, non-stick, non-toxic, environmentally friendly coating that is specially formulated for superior baking.
  • The unique corrugated surface provides air circulation all around, for better browning, more even baking, and perfect release.
  • On top of all that, pan cleans up easily by just hand-rinsing in hot soapy water; dishwasher isn’t necessary, nor advised. Try it to see the difference professional quality makes in all your baking.
  • Maximum recommended baking temperature: 450°F.
  • Taller, narrower 9” x 4” x 4”-deep pan is ideal for gluten-free yeast loaves, which require more support as they rise and bake. The extra-tall sides on this pan offer that added support, creating a beautifully shaped loaf, ideal for sandwiches.

The U.S.A. made gluten-free bread pan is available on the King Arthur Flour website. It’s a bit pricey compared to standard pans, but there is nothing standard about the King Arthur pan. Considering the excellent quality it seems like a very good value.

    Do try the King Arthur pizza mix. It is good and you’ll be surprised at how easy it is. Wet your hands with water instead of oil, though. It makes two pizzas so be prepared to share it !
