Norpro bread pans are great for making your own homemade bread. These heavy duty steel bread pans produce better results and are easier to use than other steel bread pans. The deeper design promotes a high rising loaf of bread. They have a quality nonstick coating plus dimples for easy release. The dark finish and heavy gauge tinware soaks up radiant heat for even baking. Corners are reinforced by steel rods and the top lip is rolled, eliminating sharp edges. These quality, highly durable bread pans bake better bread, and will keep doing it for many, many years. Bread Pans in general should be wiped out with a paper towel, not washed in soap and water.
