Which are the best baking sheets?
Shiny, matte, with or w/o rim, thickness,
material…?
I want to order from Amazon, but I really don?t
know how to choose; there are so many options…!
Thanks in advance,
Silvia

Charles, is aluminum better than stainless steel?
What about those fancy, non-stick, air-insulated,
dark sheets?
It?s hard for me to choose, there?s really an abundance
of baking sheets. The Vollrath’s seemsadequate if a bit pricey.
On the other hand, I prefer sure and safe over cheap.

Julie, I have used rimless sheets also when halving cakes,
to remove and handle the top layer.

What?s the difference between aluminum and har anodized aluminum?
I am looking for baking sheets at Amazon, and the uncoated, non-stick,
non air-insulated, aluminum ones don?t come inthe size I need.
It seems my oven is too small: 42 x 36 cm (about 17 x 15”),
which means that the sheets should bemaximum 41 cm (16”) long.
Only Wilton makes 16 x 14” coated, insulated, aluminum sheets.


mmm… I found one of my old aluminum, locally made, and it measures
40 x 35 cm. It fits just right in my oven,  perhaps our ovens are smaller?
I think the factory closed, unfortunately. The imported ones you find
are usually very flimsy ones.

I?have to look somewhere else.
Thanks for your help!

PS: I’ve just found a Villrath 17 x 14 aluminum sheet. Somehow, I missed it.
It would fit very tightly, if the size doesn’t include the rim. I guess,
I shouldn’t place cookies too close to the rims, right?
