The Best Baking Sheet

November 01, 2017

Baking sheets vary a lot- they are made of various materials and have different height rims. I prefer an aluminum baking sheet with a slightly raised rim- it traps liquids that might be in the cooked materials from spilling onto the bottom of the oven, and is easier to hold.

One note about aluminum pans is that even though they might be advertised as dishwasher safe, you should hand-wash them if possible as the dishwasher will badly discolor them. The discoloration doesn’t really affect the usability of the item though.

This one also comes with a cooling rack which is nice for resting cookies or meat on, or roasting something without having it rest in the drippings.
