Tri-ply aluminum and stainless steel construction provides consistent heat conduction. And the Nonstick V-Rack means air circulates around your roast for an even browning.

Classic Nonstick Bakeware Large Loaf Pan: Ever wonder why professionally baked breads look so beautiful? It's because they’re baked in professional-quality bakeware! Now, you can duplicate those results at home with Calphalon loaf pans. Colors affect baking performance because they conduct heat differently. That's why our loaf pans feature a medium gray color, which gives baked goods a golden-brown color while protecting them from overbrowning. Sturdy, wire-reinforced rolled rims enable these pans to maintain level bottoms and perfectly rectangular shapes. Folded corners produce crisp, professional edges. Loaves slide out effortlessly, thanks to the easy-release nonstick surface. And they’re dishwasher safe--making clean-up even easier!
