Baking sheets (sheet pans) seem to be our biggest seller these days, and I’m not surprised. Having just wrapped up my holiday baking (final count LESS my husband’s taste-testing abuse was more than 2,600 cookies). I couldn’t have done it without commercial baking pans.
My mother-in-law, bless her wonderful heart, goes through about 4 baking sheets each year – all fancy ones she picks up at department stores. Non-stick, air bake; the "latest and greatest", and still she has the same complaints: cookies burn, it’s hard to gauge proper cooking times.
Me? I continue to use the same aluminum restaurant-grade sheet pans and people keep asking how my cookies come out so evenly baked. When they hear what I paid for them (less than half the cost of those so-called "perfect" pans in the local Wal-Mart), they ask where they can get some for themselves. So I send them to TigerChef, where else?
While some recipes call for greasing or non-stick pans, I’ve found that for standard baking aluminum wins hands-down. For my gingerbread men? I just line them with parchment paper. No fuss, no mess, and no need to clean between batches.
The biggest benefit to picking up baking sheets at TigerChef? The price. Years ago I juggled 4 small non-stick pans in and out of the oven. I wasted time and energy while the heated oven anxiously waited for me to feed it another dozen cookies on a sheet. Plus, because they couldn’t withstand all that abuse, by January I’d have to buy new ones.
I’ve replaced all those pans with commercial sheet pans (half-sheet size will fit in most household ovens). I have 8 of these – plenty to keep the rotation going at a comfortable speed. Total investment? Less than $50, and these babies will last me a good many years to come. They’re easy on the wallet, easy on the oven and most of all, easy on the cookies!
