I have a baguette pan I bought 15-20 years ago in Vancouver, so I'm sure you
can get one in a city cookware store. It's aluminum, about 18" long and if
you look at it end-on it looks like an upside-down small letter "m". In
other words it has two semi-circular pans, about 2 1/2" in diameter, with no
ends. Being semi-circular, there have to be 2 pans because one would fall
over! Besides, a regular loaf recipe makes 2 baguettes. I hope this makes
sense, it's hard to describe without drawing a picture.
