The Challenger Bread Pan is the only pan on the market in which every single detail was designed with the bread baker in mind. The sealed environment of a covered black cast iron pan is the only way to Bake Bread Like a Pro™ in a regular oven. Our pan is hand-poured and hand-seasoned in the United States. It is handcrafted every step of the way. The Challenger Bread Pan is designed to last. We created The Challenger to be passed on to your family, ensuring generations of home bakers will continue to bake and enjoy quality craftsmanship. Learn more about the Challenger Bread Pan here.

• Although not necessary, you can line the base of the pan with parchment or even load the pan using parchment paper if it’s easier for you. You may also add a sprinkling of semolina before loading your dough.
• Some bakers have found it helpful to add an ice cube (or two) in the corner of the base of your pan before you place the cover on and bake. This can often give you optimal blistering and crust texture.
• If the bottom of your loaf is too dark for your tastes, place one or two inverted half-sheet pans on your oven rack and then place your pan on top of the inverted half-sheet pans. We’ve found this works best if you don’t preheat the half-sheet pans along with your Challenger Bread Pan.
Although you will receive a pre-seasoned pan you may need to reseason it over time to maintain its nonstick coating and shine. To reseason your pan, rub a light coating of grapeseed oil or flaxseed oil on both the lid and the base and place each on a separate oven rack. Set the oven to its hottest temperature and allow the lid and base to reseason at this high heat for at least one hour. Shut the oven off and let the lid and pan cool entirely in your oven before removing. For more details, please read about Care & Use of your pan here.
