Jim Challenger began in 2016, and, as bakers do, became obsessed with baking the perfect loaf. What started out as an expression of love—making healthy food for his family—grew into a commitment to learning the craft of baking bread. Challenger Breadware grew out of Jim’s daily baking practice, and his personal goal to help more people bake better and eat more healthfully, one delicious loaf at a time. The Challenger Bread Pan, the signature cast-iron pan the company pioneered now has a fast-growing and passionate community of users. It has been designed to be long-lasting, very high performing and ergonomically designed, plus it can accommodate both round and oval loaves.
