The Challenger Bread Pan The Challenger Bread Pan was conceived and created for bakers by baker and entrepreneur Jim Challenger.

Jim’s goal: to design a pan to help you bake the best bread every time you bake. The Challenger Bread Pan’s unique design elements—a shallow base for easy dough loading; a sealed environment for ideal steam; purposefully-placed handles for easy maneuvering; and plenty of headroom for rising dough—guarantee better loaves.

With the Challenger Bread Pan, it's functionality and handle placement make dough easy to load and score. The pan’s thick, black cast iron delivers powerful radiant heat to your bakes. The cast iron absorbs and retains heat which helps your dough’s oven spring and bloom. Capturing and retaining steam is the secret to producing full-volume loaves with crackling crusts, deep, rich colors, and open scores: the lid’s tight seal ensures this precious steam doesn’t escape. Proudly crafted in the USA, the pan is made to last for generations. The pursuit of the beautiful loaf, the perfect loaf, is a never-ending quest.

After you spend hours laboring over your dough, why leave the important last step—the bake—to chance? The Challenger Bread Pan gives you the right amount of heat and steam every time you bake everything from the most basic breads to cinnamon buns and even pizza.

Challenger Breadware Jim Challenger finds support and inspiration from his local and international (Hello, #bakersofinstagram!) baking community. Jim listened to what bakers wanted—and were missing—when baking at home.

Jim bakes daily in his home-based bakery, and he and his wife, Lisa, continue to give away dozens of loaves every week, sharing their bread with the local community as well as family and friends.

Statement from Jim Challenger “The Challenger Bread Pan is truly the first bread pan on the market today that was designed by bread bakers for bread bakers to help you bake better bread in a home oven. It will absolutely revolutionize the way you bake.”

Top 3 Reasons You’ll Love Your Challenger Bread Pan®:

  1. Shallow base: loading your dough is easy.
  2. Sealed environment: creates the perfect amount of steam.
  3. Versatile: fits a wide variety of bread shapes and sizes, as well as other baked goods.


Your Challenger Bread Pan® has been pre-seasoned and shipped ready to use. Prior to your first bake, simply wipe the pan with a damp cloth. Your pan is extremely easy to clean. Simply brush it free of any crumbs once it has cooled. You may occasionally want to wash your pan with water or dish detergent. After washing and rinsing thoroughly, lightly wipe the surface of your pan with grapeseed or flaxseed oil to preserve the pan’s seasoning and beautiful finish. Allow the pan to dry in a warm oven. Only store the lid and base of your pan when they are completely dry.

We recommend preheating your pan to 450—500°F / 230—260°C. The time it takes to reach this suggested temperature will vary depending on your oven. Your pan retains consistent heat longer than other baking vessels and therefore you may need to adjust your usual bake times. Please monitor baking times closely during the first few uses and adjust oven heat and bake times as necessary. Minor smoking may occur during your first few bakes. This is normal and safe and will not affect your bread. The smoking will soon dissipate.
