Sheet Pan, a portrait. .
I use two of these half size sheet pans almost daily. Half size refers to half size of commercial kitchen sheet pans. These bad boys are 17.9x12.9 inches with a one inch rim. I like @nordicwareusa pans. While made with aluminum, it’s hard to beat the durability and easy of cooking with these sheet pans. Steel pans warp in the heat and stone ware is heavy and tends to crack over time. So this is my workhorse. From what I’ve read, the aluminum leaching into food occurs when cooking with acid like vinegar, tomato sauce, lemon juice, and there needs to be a simmering time. So for soups and stews go for enamel cast-iron. However for my crispy sheet pan recipes I feel good using these sturdy aluminum sheet pans and as you can see they get a lot of love. For skillets, I’m still a cast iron girl forever. I like practical tools. Not an ad, just an ode to my good, reliable friend here. #cook #sheetpan #workhorse
