4.0 out of 5 stars Measurements do not match pan, September 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: USA Pans 9 x 5 x 2.75 Inch Loaf Pan, Aluminized Steel with Americoat (Kitchen)
I have a USA Pans loaf pan measuring 9x5 across the top -- this isn't it. What gets shipped to you when you order a "9x5" pan is actually 9-1/2 x 5-1/2 at the top, 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 at the bottom.

If you want a loaf pan that measures 9x5 across the top, edge to edge, order the next size down (8-1/2 x 4-1/2).

I wonder if this is an industry-wide thing with 9"x5" loaf pans. The top dimensions of the KitchenAid 9"x5" loaf pan are also slightly larger than 9"x5" as well. It measures about 9 3/16" by 5 3/16" on top and about 8 1/4" by 4 1/4" on the bottom.

I just this morning received two of these pans and baked a couple perfect loaves of whole wheat bread already. I measured the top and bottom INSIDE dimensions of these pans and they are 9 x 5 x 2.75 on the inside, making the OUTSIDE bottoms of my fresh loaves 9 x 5 x 2.75 precisely. I thought an American should still be able to measure correctly !!! };>{>

My Parrish Magic Line measures the exact same way. I know this because I cut an 8.5 x 4.5 piece of parchment for the bottom of my 9 x 5 loaf pans. My loaves are always perfect.

hey can someone please re-clarify this WHOLE issue for me? I am now confused . ..

is EVERY single loaf pan ever made 9x5 on top and 8x4 on bottom? Is this reviewer correct in what he is saying? why would the next size down be 9x5 if it's advertised as 8x4. . . does anyone else see why i am confused??? thanks have a good day :)

I see why you are confused. Why would you buy a smaller pan to get a larger loaf??

I just received the 9x5-inch and 8.5x4.5-inch pans, and can attest to the fact that the INSIDE measurements (across the top, edge to edge, inside the pan) are exactly as advertised. This is the way baking pans are supposed to be measured, though actual pan capacities vary depending on whether pans have sloped or straight sides.

I'm looking for a 9x5 loaf pan and wanted to buy this one for my 9x5 pan bread recipes. After reading the comments here, should I just go ahead and buy this one although the measurements aren't accurate, or is this how all 9x5 pans are measured industry-wide like what one of the commenter asked?

You would think that all 9 x 5 pans are the same size, but they aren't. These pans are a bit larger than the Farberware pans that I also have. I like the Farberware pans better because they don't have the folded corners that food get stuck in. Also, when you wash these pans, water drips from inside the folds for a while until they dry.

placebo says:
The actual dimensions aren't that important. What's important is the volume of the pan. A 9x5 pan has roughly 20% more volume than an 8.5x4.5 pan of the same height. That's a pretty big difference. I would expect that all 9x5 pans have about the same capacity, even if the individual dimensions vary a bit. So while a 9x5 pan may not measure exactly 9"x5" at the top, it would probably be fine for what you're doing.

I don't have the USA pans, but from the picture, I'd probably avoid them for the reason Judy mentions. If seems like the sharp edges are just asking to get food stuck in them, and it looks like it would be a pain to clean them. I prefer pans with rounded edges for that reason.

Judy L. says:
c. Hirano, What you said would be true if the actual dimensions of the pan are 9 x 5. The inside dimensions of this pan are actually 10 x 5 and the height is the same as the Farberware pan. So using a recipe for a 9 x 5 loaf, your loaf will be longer and with less height as compared to a loaf made in a pan that is actually 9 x 5. I have used this pan to bake the same recipes that I have used the Farberware pan, and the loaves are an inch longer, but not as high.
