These sheet pans are the ones that came out on top in the Cooks Illustrated review. They are super heavy gauge steel. I use these pans mainly for broiling meat/fish at high temps on a wire rack. Having the meat elevated keeps the bottom from getting soggy. The first set of pans I got from katom were warped because they were simply wrapped in cardboard. This is a fault of packaging, not a defect in the pan. The UPS guy probably had stuff stacked up irregularly on top of them in the truck. I contacted katom, sent pics, and their customer service replaced the pans for no charge. This time they shipped in a box and arrived in good condition. Very happy with their customer service! No sheet pan is immune to warpage. I have had one pan temporarily warp when convection broiling under extreme heat, but within seconds of removing from the oven it popped back into shape. It only happened that one time, so I'm considering it a fluke. The one thing I'm a little dissapointed in is that the "lip" of the pan all around the edges is a little sharp. On lesser quality pans, this edge is usually "rolled" but these pans are made of steel that is so thick, I don't think it's possible to roll the edge. I'm usually handing the pans with potholders so it doesn't bother me that much. I would definitely buy these pans again from katom and I'm looking forward to many many many years of use.
I bought four of these as gifts for my wife and oldest daughter. They LOVE these things. Rave about them. No cons as noted by others. Oh, Great price also
the pan arrived severely warped. Apparently this is a common problem. The edges were also sharp.
