Learn how to get better keto baking results with our Keto Low Carb Bread Tins. Everything you need to know to pick the best tin for your low carb or keto bread baking.

Without realizing it I have created a huge amount of baked keto treats along the way. This was not my intention to do so many keto or low carb baked recipes but somehow, I kind of have. If you love bread, you can check out my Keto Breads eBook packed with loads of great recipes.

Every day I get swamped with questions, comments, DM’s and emails regarding my gluten free baking recipes, or the Low Carb Bread recipe. Our Low Carb Bread is crazily popular and with so many people making it, of course, we end up with a lot of questions and queries on ingredients or results.

I will say that this post will be updated often. I will send an email to our subscribers list each time I update. Updates will include more FAQ’s, new keto products/stockists as they become available plus more techniques etc. as I find more recipes that could use a few more tips.

My Favourite Loaf Pans

Let’s start with the most asked questions about the low carb bread recipe. There are a lot but hey some I will give you my tips and other links to baking blogs who can explain it as well.

The Best Baking Pans for Bread

If you have followed me for a while you know I have used a lot of loaf pans in my time. With the new update of the Low Carb Bread I have addressed many FAQ’s so please re-check the post for all the updates.

Let’s look at the best baking tins for low carb or gluten free baking.

USA Pans

I love the USA pans and here is why.
USA pans are made from an Aluminum Steel. They are light in colour and great conductors of heat. Manufactured in the USA with each pan coated in Ameri-coat PLUS, a clear silicone-based coating, USA Pan bakeware is specifically developed and formulated for long-life use and nonstick durability. Qualities I really love in bakeware.

I use a few USA loaf pans.

  • I use the small loaf pan (pictured below and the loaf above is baked in it)
  • Medium USA Loaf Pan. These have the ridged bases to allow for air circulation and heat distribution.
  • Small Pullman Loaf Pan – with the lid this gives you a great sandwich loaf.
  • Large Pullman Loaf Pan – perfect for our Low Carb Bread recipe (made with 1.5X the recipe). The large loaf tin is 25.4cm x 12.7cm x 7.6cm.

Mastercraft CrustyBake Box

The MasterCraft CrustyBake Box is the original tin many of you have seen me use in my old videos and original Low Carb Bread recipe.

Being a darker colour steel the pan gives bread a crustier base. It has perforated holes to allow air circulation. This does make this tin only suitable for low carb bread not keto bread, like Soul Bread. Any that are not in a dough will leak out through the holes.

With my low carb bread recipes, I use a 23cm CrustyBake as it is the largest size. This sizing tends to give you a very high loaf due to the loaf tin size.

Silicone Loaf Pans

While I love silicone spatulas (a LOT) and I love a silicone cake mould to protect baked cheesecakes, I am not a fan of silicone loaf pans. Why?

Silicone is not a great conductor of heat so for gluten free baking, it is a huge inhibitor of leavening. When the odds are already stacked against with no gluten then a silicone loaf is not a good choice. Also, because of the lack of heat distribution the bread will not brown or crisp.

A silicone loaf pan is best used for light colour cakes, terrines, jellies, or any loaves where sticking may be a problem.

Glass Loaf Pans

I only just received my first glass loaf baking pan last week. So, at this point of time I have yet to test them out personally. From the research I have done, it seems there are mixed results and recommendations. However, I have seen a fantastic result with our low carb bread recipe on our Facebook Group Bread Thread.

Glass is a good conductor of heat so baking low carb or gluten free bread should be fine. They are also great for casseroles, meat loaf, lasagna, or keto sweet breads like our Keto Banana Bread.

Jumbo Tin with Lid

I love making the low carb bread in the jumbo loaf tin too! I do 1.5 times the recipe and get a huge loaf.

Other great loaf pans with lids include; Toast Box Loaf Pan, Chefmade Pullman, and Kitessemsu Lidded Loaf Pan just for a few to look at. I have so many sizes and styles and bake with whatever I am feeling is my mood at the time. Haha!

Checkout our video below for it. With the addition of a lid this gives you an absolutely perfect low carb sandwich loaf.

    Absolutely brilliant! I have tried loads of so called lo carb bread recipes and none work like this. Made it yesterday exactly like the recipe and was awaiting another disappointment but when after 20 min I saw it doubling in size I started getting exited (sad me) after an hour I put it in the oven. Now we only have an AGA so I put the bottom rack on the floor which made the oven temp about 200 degrees C. After 35 minutes the crust was brown and hard just how we like it and fully cooked in the middle. I didn’t use a tin, just a freestanding loaf. All worked out brilliant.
