Lodge L4LP3 Customer Reviews
Product Code: 261-L4LP3
I've tried several different styles of loaf pan: glass, plain aluminum, nonstick aluminum and these. These cast iron pans are virtually non stick and brown perfectly. The only drawback is that they are heavy for a bread pan - still not heavy enough to bother me. The trick with getting a brown crust below the ridge of a baking pan is a dark color on the pan itself (something to do with heat reflection). So if you use glass or plain aluminum, you will end up with only light browning on the sides. Nonstick aluminum pans are the only ones I've found (besides cast iron) that give you the correct browning, at least in a home oven. I don't like using non stick because they eventually break down / scratch and I don't like the idea of silicon or whatever in my cooking. So I found these by process of elimination and haven't looked back. Gotten several for gifts as well. As an added bonus, like most well cared for cast iron, they are a breeze to clean (no soap, stiff brush and water) and can be just as non-stick as Teflon. Did I mention that they will last forever?
PRICE FROM YOUR COMPANY IS ALWAYS THE BEST.
Awesome product...fast delivery...washed loaf pans....immediately baked 3 loafs of bread and one meatloaf same day...absolutely wonderful. Somewhat smaller pans..bought pre-made bread dough loaves...cut in half lengthwise...let rise in pans..and bake..!!!
Cast iron takes a little while to get used to, but its really the best. Lodge is the last American Mfg of cast iron and the best avail. Katom had the best price.
great product, a little difficult to clean. great price and fast shipping.
I ordered several of these to give as Christmas gifts and decided to try them out first. I am amazed at the even browning and cooking without having to turn your pans half-way through the cooking cycle. A quick wipe with a damp cloth and they are ready for the next time you need them. These loaf pans are the absolute best way I know of to cook bread, pound cake, or a moulded meat loaf. I'm ordering more of these. They are fantastic!!!
We make our own fresh ground wheat bread, cooking it in these pans just makes it all the better! Lodge makes the best cast iron on the market and Katom has awesome customer service and best price. Folks who are afraid of cooking with cast iron just miss out.
great pan. have already cooked meatloaf and banana bread in the pan and both came out perfectly.
I ordered these cast iron loaf pans for our daily bread making and they are fantastic! We uses a lot of cast iron and I am thrilled to add these to our collection. Made in the USA, pre seasoned and the best price around. We use them everyday!
Rock solid, even heat distribution and made in USA
