Need new cookie sheets..recommendations?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I have never posted before, but I new this would be a great place to get information. I want to replace all of my baking sheets and have tried 3 different kinds and and have very unhappy. The super dark ones overcooked the cookies and the other 2 kinds "popped and twisted" when put in the oven. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!

I can't remember where I purchased mine at....But I love my "Airbake" cookie sheets. I never use parchment paper, and never have any trouble with them over baking on the bottom. I personally will not use anything else.

I love my Lincoln Wearever. Just search online and you'll find them.

I threw away all of my metal baking sheets years ago and only bake cookies on stones now.

Once you try these you will never go back to traditional metal sheets. The cookies come out perfect every time.

Here's an example....

I love my baking stones...cookies look exactly the same on the bottom as they do on top, so never a burned cookie bottom!

didavista, if you can bake on those sheets with the air in the middle, I applaud you. thumbs_up.gif I had a couple of those and I ended up giving them to the kids to use as snow sleds. Total crap to me.

One thing I'm going to miss about not having my comm'l kitchen anymore is I have to go back to using the crappy crap they stick housewives with. My first choice would be stones, too, but barring that, get some good heavy metal ones. As close to commercial grade as will fit in your oven. If you have a kitchen store in your area, hit there (The Kitchen Collection comes to mind ... usually found in outlet malls.) The ones you buy in retail stores (like walmart) are just nasty to bake on. nice HEAVY DUTY plain 'ole baking sheets. Nothing fancy dancy .... just good baking sheets.

If you have a restaurant supply, get some of the 1/2 sheet pans (12x1icon_cool.gif. Baking on these with parchment and your cookies will look like they came out of a high end gourmet bakery.

I've recently replaced ALL of my "you'll never buy another cookie sheet after using this one!" cookie sheets with the large aluminum 12 x 16 two-set sheets from Sam's. They're WONDERFUL!!! I haven't had anything stick to them and I can get more cookies on them than my old 11 x 13 sheets. Cleanup is a breeze and my cookies come out perfectly on them - plus they're great for making things like peppermint bark, snack mix (that has to be baked in the oven), etc. These cookie sheets plus my KitchenAid are the two things I CANNOT live without now! LOL!

The brand is Bakers & Chefs and I believe the cost for a set of two is around $20. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY and I'll be giving these as gifts to the bakers in my family!!!

I just did all my Christmas cookies on the Sam's ones. Love them! I think having the ridge around the edge (like a jelly roll pan) helps avoid the popping and twisting you can get from regular cookie sheets.

I have used the airbakes in the past with very mixed results. I had over 140 cookies to decorate this Christmas so I did a little investigating and found that the William Sonoma galvanized sheets got good ratings. They are about $13 a pan, but well worth the investment. I had beautiful cookies this year and got rave reviews. I bought two and plan on buying a few more soon. Good luck with your hunt.

Sam's sheets are my favorite too! Can't beat the price either. I've baked and baked on them and they continue to look brand new.

All of my cookie sheets are from Sams club too.. I love them, but have never tried the others. Just a newbie in the baking world.
