Any suggestions for baking sheets without nonstick coating?

I recently switched over my cookware to get rid of my nonstick coating pots and pans. Now I need to work on the bakeware.

Does anyone have any suggestions for brand names or places to buy good baking sheets, I guess preferably stainless steel, without nonstick coating?

Williams Sonoma has some good stuff... but you might do well at restaurant supply houses which would be a lot less expensive.

Just remember to buy some parchment paper to line your bakeware - it works wonders... and paper cupcake liners.

You can get big boxes of flat parchment at the restaurant supply places too... for cheap!
Oh, and make sure you measure your oven and don't get pans/sheets that are too big!

I bought a box of 1000 sheets of pre-cut parchment (it fits an 11x17 pan) at the dollar store. The find of my life!

I also bought the Exopat sheets that Linda Sue recommends on her web site. They're less than the Silpat and identical.

I bought my baking sheets at Bed, Bath & Beyond with one of those 20% off coupons they are always sending out.

I personally prefer Pampered Chef baking stones for ALL my baking. I've had them for over 10 years and they get better by the year. baking stones. Won't go back to anything else.

I've recently been looking for some top kitchen supplies myself. Cooks rated the Vollrath baking sheet as a top performer - and rather affordable too (comparatively)! It's non-stick so you need to use parchment. In the same article, I was reading that non-stick surfaces are so water repellent that they tend to dry out your baked goods anyway. Take it or leave it

Hear! Hear! on the Pampered Chef stones!! They season themselves after a few uses. . .no need for parchment, even!! (Though I do use parchment if I make oopsies. . .those little buggers just slide right off that stuff!!) The stones come in just about every shape and size imaginable.

I bought these because of the Cook's rating. They are VERY sturdy and exceptional in everyway. They are also VERY heavy (for a baking sheet). I also love and use constantly rimmed aluminum pans which I line with parchment. Last week I found a parchment paper that is not bleached and really love it.

I use parchment a lot, but to be honest, it's expensive, even using it more than once. I am leaning more toward the non-disposable (silicone) baking liners such as Silpat. I have 2 and I prefer using them over parchment.

Are the silicone sheets easy to clean? I'd assume, since they are silicone. And they're durable? I've seen them at BB&Beyond but have resisted purchasing since they are so $$$. Granted, that was a while ago. Maybe they've come down in price since then.

Chicago Metallic makes a full line of professional, heavy-duty non-stick bakeware.

A useful compromise between the expensive parchment paper and the realllly expensive silcone baking sheets are "magic Baking Sheets". (Google 'em.) This is a liner (thinner than the silicone ones) which can be cut to any size (muffin tops for Oopsies come to mind), reused, dishwashered, etc. It can also withstand temps up to 500 degrees which many of the parchments cannot. (Yup, parchment papers can burn.) Seem to be made of Teflon, tho, which may not be acceptable for some folks.

I just purchased two new stainless steel baking sheets at Super Wal-Mart. They are made in the U.S.A. by Nordic Ware. I do not recall the exact price, but I'm sure they were less than $10 each.

Have fun shopping.

I bought some at Costco called NordicWare Baker's Half Sheets. They came in a 2 pack with plastic lids and a nice baking rack. I think it was under $20 for the whole works.

After years of dealing with less expensive baking sheets, these are a joy - they don't warp or flex with heat like so many do, even some of the expensive ones!

I like to line them with either heavy-duty foil (like for cooking bacon) or nonstick foil (for cooking hot wings) or the silicone sheets (I bought some "cut to fit" stuff that's actually intended for the bottom of your oven) and it all works great.

The silicone cleans up very easily. I use it for everything that WON'T leak under it - like ovenfrying zucchini sticks, or cookies, that type of thing.

FYI

Just an FYI. I went to my local Bed, Bath and Beyond for the muffin top pans and they didn't have any instock. They told me I could order them in the store AND use my 20% off coupon. If I order anything online, the coupon will not work. The coupon is only an "in store" special. Just a thought.

I've been using the silicone sheets (Silpat) for years and just love them! Nothing sticks to them and they wash easily and last forever.

I also bought the red silicon sheets from WalMart recently. They come with 1 full cookie sheet size and 1 smaller one that works perfectly in the microwave. I make cheese crackers out of Deli American cheese. (I put 2 slices on it and microwave for 1:05 and Voila! Crunchy cheese crackers.

Wow that is a great and easy idea. I have read of people using grated cheese and baking it but have not tried it yet. Your idea is even easier. I am going to try that, thanks!

I was at Costco yesterday and looked, they still have the same pans I got, 2 pans and a heavy-duty cooling rack for $15.99. It's a great buy IMHO!

Laura in Arizona~

Check the labels... the "deli deluxe" by Kraft has 0 carb in 1 slice and believe me, you'll like that when you start eating these crackers! Of course the more you eat, the more the carbs will kick in, but hey---

I use them for everything: nut butters, open faced tuna & chicken salad, BLT, avocado, mayo & small slice tomato or just plain.

You may have to play with the time as microwave power varies. Too little time and they are too soft (just put them in for another 10 secs and see)-- too much time and they get too crispy & burnt inside (eat anyway or use as salad croutons). Mine is 1:05 for 2 slices.

Thanks everybody!

I don't have a Costco here.

I've decided that I want stainless steel baking sheets.

I called the restaurant supply store and they don't have stainless steel, just aluminum.

I'm going to try to find the Nordic Ware stainless steel ones at Super Wal-mart.
