I think its a loaf pan or tin that you are referring to, the kind you make quick breads like banana bread etc.. different from a cake pan

It really does depend on what kind of bread you are making.
A tin (pan) meant for bread is most definitely different than a cake tin (pan). It should resemble a rectangle and have a depth of four inches or so.
