Should I get a pullman loaf pan?
So I'm really obsessed with baking sandwich loaves, and I've noticed it seems like every bread baker has a pullman loaf pan. I use a regular, open-top 9x5 loaf pan for most of my sandwich loaf baking, and it works out great. But there are just so many bakers that swear by the pullman loaf pan. How come they are so popular? Other than shape, does the pullman loaf pan result in a loaf that's any different?
I've been debating whether a pullman loaf pan is worth getting, because the square shape that pullman loaves are really growing on me. However, it also seems that they are relatively pricey in comparison to a regular loaf pan (generally $30+). Right now, I’m unsure whether it is something worth investing in. If anyone has any thoughts or advice, I would greatly appreciate it! Also, if anyone can recommend any good brands, that would also be very helpful.
