Cookie Sheets
« on: May 03, 2020, 07:02:27 PM »
Our cookie sheets (baking sheets) are good, but they are aluminium and they occasionally give off a black residue on my hands. We always using parchment paper, so we know it isnít leeching into our food. I would like to replace them, but I have a terrible history with baking pans and have gone through too many of them.

Does anyone have a baking pan for cookies that they absolutely love and would recommend?  It has to have rimmed edges all the way around, because I also use them for things other than cookies, like roasting vegetables or seeds.

As we use parchment, non-stock isnít important, and I would honestly prefer to avoid chemical coatings. I love cast iron and ceramic for this reason, but my ceramic pan went bye-bye a few new allergens ago due to cross contact fears.

What do you recommend?

I donít have a recommendation; Iíve been using heavy duty cookie sheets that I bought at Costco wins ago. But Iím curious about the residue, because after close to 50 (!) years of use my momís old electric frying pan started doing the same thing!  It wasnít usable anymore, but it broke my heart to get rid of it. I have no idea what caused it.

Aluminium oxidizes, like copper turns green or iron rusts. It is often slower and finer but it happens. That is the black residue.  Anodized aluminium doesnít oxidize in the same way, but I cannot find anodized bakeware.

I am considering ceramic again, but my allergy list keeps growing and that concerns me in many ways, including allergens sitting in pores of ceramic bakeware. Can I still use parchment on those?  (I never have in the past.)

I have shiny metal cookie sheets that I really like. They were a wedding gift 25 years ago and still look close to new even though I use them several times a week. Unfortunately, I have no idea what brand they are or what theyíre made of - they have no markings on them at all.  They bake cookies more evenly than any other cookie sheet I have.

I found these on amazon that look almost identical to mine that are steel, so Iím guessing thatís what mine are. They donít have a rim all the way around, but perhaps you could find some steel ones that do have a rim?

I saw Norpro ones on Amazon, too!  I will check for a rimmed version.
