Loaf Tins - Help!

Please, please, please can someone define the dimensions of a 1lb, 2lb and 3lb loaf tin?

I have several of various sizes and still end up tipping prepared ingredients from one to t'other.

Funnily enough, I've just bought a new 2lb loaf tin today - don't have a 1lb one anymore, it rusted and a 2lb one seemed like a good size for all sorts of things. Anyway, it's dimensions are (measuring bottom and outside) L 19.6cm W 10 cm and D 7 cm Measuring from the top L 23 cm W 13cm and D 7.5 - does that help?

The measurements are in the Lakeland catalogue and presumably on their website.

2lb tins different sizes


I have several loaf tins of different sizes but all claiming to be 2lb loaf tins, so when a recipe calls for a 2lb loaf tin, I have to make a note on each recipe that I make as to what tin I put it in.

Rosemary S - that's rather the sort of situation I often find myself in. Good idea about marking the recipe with which tin, assuming of course that I get it right in the first place!

i also had same prob with my tins so i had the idea to use a marker pen underneath each tin with the size of tin it was .then i can see at a glance the correct size of tin i need saves me rushing round after a tape to measure whenever i needed a tin .

In fact I think you are actually talking about bread tins. Loaf tins or loaf pans are shallower and have slightly rounded edges and corners. These hold slightly less.

I have various sizes of bread tins and use them when a loaf tin is called for. They are fairly standard in size, the most usual being small (1lb) and medium (2lb). Large 3lb ones are available but not as widely. You can also find expanding ones which hold from 2lb to about 4lbs. You should be OK for most things with small and medium sizes
