These sheets are amazing. Classic Baking sheets that I will keep for the rest of my life, unlike the Teflon ones which scratch, rust and lose their toxic coating into the food. These sheets clean easily and look cool too. I love them. Fits British ovens perfectly.
I'm a skilled home cook and I learned that there's a reason why award-winning pastry chefs like Stella Parks endorses this product. It's thick aluminum build and strong rim make it a reliable workhorse in the kitchen. I feel like they're so durable that I'll be able to pass these beauties onto my children.
I purchased the "3 Piece Baking Gift Set - Aluminum Sheet Pan, SILMAT Silicone Baking Mat & Stainless Steel Cooling Rack" from Amazon CA before trying this brand. Their silicon mat and cooling rack work great but the sheet pan is noticeably thinner compared to Nordic Ware. It pops and buckles under temperatures of 375°F in my oven. The package was a wicked value and I think it's because the aluminum sheets are lower quality.
I use the quarter sheets for everything: getting prep out of the fridge, storing prep, baking, cooling, serving. They're just the most convenient size for many kitchen tasks. I rarely repurchase things but I love these so much I'm going to get another set of quarter sheets, and dole out the cash to get the half sheets too.
I did a lot of research when I decided to upgrade my baking ware, including heading to the America's Test Kitchen website . They recommended these as the best and so far I love them! And I can fit them in my European stove which is a bit less wide than "normal" stoves (ie, a 1/2 sheet won't fit). So far easy to clean, but I do almost always line with a Silpat or parchment paper. Some discoloration spots due to my getting baking soda on them, but it did no real damage. With a rack, I use them for roasting, and I can deglaze and make sauce in them on top of the stove. I cannot think that I'd ever use any other baking sheet again!
I'm surprised at how much better these are than my old cookie sheets for baking. Better heat distribution, no buckling. I usually use parchment paper for cookies to help with cleaning. When roasting vegetables I just use a fair bit of olive oil which prevents sticking. Very happy with these. Note that these are the SMALLER size, as other reviewers have noted. Get out your measuring tape before you purchase. I have these plus the next size up. They get used a few times a week.
I purchased 2 of these pans on 20th July 2019, I love them. They are heavy duty and are still going great. They cost $36.20 and weighed approx 450 grams each. I wanted to buy a couple more, I do alot of baking😊. When they were delivered I was very disappointed😒 I thought that there was only one in the box. They weighed approx 250 grams each and I paid $29.99 for them. They have obviously skimped out with the material. On the plus side they are still made in the US
It’s seems to be becoming increasingly common for aluminium to be considered the cream of the crop when it comes to baking (for its even heat conduction). I have to say, these trays are great and I’ve joined the club. The trays seem to be of really good quality and I expect (It’s early days in their life though) that they won’t have warping issues that I’ve encountered with other trays in the past.
UPDATE - I’ve now been using these trays regularly over the last year and they’re still in a fantastic condition with no warping!
These baking sheets do an excellent job of evenly distributing heat, are light weight and are by far my favourites. The quarter size is great for making small portions, or for placing ramekins on. The only thing you can't do is put them in the dishwasher because they are aluminum. I will never buy any other type of baking sheet.
I am tired of throwing away non stick pans after the coating wears off, so I have switched to Nordic Ware. The quarter pans are a perfect size for downsizers like myself. I ordered the 2 pack. Nice and sturdy, does not warp, cleans up nice. Best part is, no non stick coating to wear off. Love them, would buy again.
I read that having good quality aluminum pans can really help improve your cookies, and was skeptical at first. But these pans definitely made a difference! My cookies bake more evenly, and don’t burn on the bottom.
