I want to make Italian style pain de mie bread for sandwich which is much larger size than the usual 13x4x4 pull man pan available on the market.

Where can I find a larger size baking pan for pain de mie? Are there any alternatives to achieve this goal?

  • I looked and looked. I love my pullman pans, but I can't find one larger than 4X4X13 inches. What you can do is approximate one by using a larger "regular" pan with an aluminum foil lid and something flat with some heft (a sheet pan or baking stone?). Welcome to Seasoned Advice. I edited out your signature just because we don't do that here. I will write an answer once I actually try the makeshift lid thing.

Like this one Wilton Aluminum Loaf Pan? Or are there some other requirements?

  • WOW! I looked and looked! :) No lid though. The lips on the top would be problematic for trying to fabricate one. Here's one with a lid

There is a 16x4x4 inch pullman on Amazon (see James's answer and my comment). In another comment, I suggested a workaround.

Well, curiosity piqued, I tried the workaround.

I preheated the baking stone with the oven. This is an awesome recipe from King Arthur Flour and a go to, so I can say that the workaround gets the same results as an actual pain de mie pan. This is a pullman, but without the lid.

That being the case, I question spending the money on the large pullman.
