I think this is much a matter of the baker's judgement.  I was not going to answer because I thought someone from the commercial area might be better to answer.  However, for what it is worth, here are my suggestions.


Loaf panned in a 5" x 8" pan -- 34 oz. (960 g)


Kaiser rolls -- 2.5 to 3.8 oz. (70 - 105 g)


dinner rolls -- 1.5 oz. (42 g)


baguette -- 10.5 oz. (300 g


Ford  -- 2912 oz. (82,553 g)

2912 ounces is 182 lbs.  That's one big loaf! (no offense, Ford)

You are quick staho88, and right.  It used to be bigger, but I have lost a little.  And, of course, no offense taken -- I asked for it.
