Where can I find 9 x 5.5 x 2.5 bread pans?

I'm having a heck of a time locating what seems to be a fairly standard size deli size loaf pan and would appreciate a solid pointer or two,  My goal is to produce loafs that compare in size to commercially available deli loafs.

This is pretty close;

I just typed in 9x5x2.5 loaf pan in Google, came up with a decent amount of hits.

I've found a number of pans via google etc. that claim to be 9 X 5, but after ordering them they turn out to be 8.5 x 4.5 or some variation thereof - there doesn't seem to be a clear standard for sizing.

The Safeway down the street from me has both sizes.


Santa Cruz, CA

The label may say 9 x 5,5, but invariably they are not in my (albeit brief) experience.


Thanks for the tip though.

9 x 5.5 is not.

Unfortunately, what you are looking for is a commercial baking pan.  The closest I could find online at Wasserman restaurant supply was 8 1/2x 5 3/4 strapped in sets of 4.

I only own one of these large pans because many years(20+) ago the bakery my brother was working for, was getting rid of all their individual pans and switching to strapped.

Maybe some long established bakery has a few stashed in their store room and might sell you one?

Good luck.

We could use commercial strapped pans - I'll check out wasserman as bigger is likely to be okay, but smaller, not so much.

I realized after my last reply that I know what I meant by "bigger" but no one else likely did, so here's the details:


The inside bottom dimensions need to be at least 5" in Width and 8" to 9" in Length and 2 1/4" - 2 3/4" in height.  

Single pans would be ideal, but strapped pans are okay (can cut straps if needed)

I might even be okay with longer pans

Thanks for looking

Big Lots carries pans that appear about the size that you're looking for.  They are low quality (very thin metal).  Other loaf pan sizes are available from Big Tray:  They may special order a size that may not be in stock.  Those are commercial quality pans, but the price is reasonable.
