Wonderful baking sheet, you probably will need to increase the baking time by a minute or two.
Bought because of online reviews that this is best product available. This is heavy duty, commercial quality level cookie sheet. Son baked cookies on once. first batch when sheet cold 24 mins, second batch burned at 9 mins (didn't watch - as he thought did not have to remove until closer to 20 mins). Thick sheets retain heat WELL and some users have written about cooling them first with warm water followed by cold, before reloading dough as heat flattens out some cookies too thin. Seems inefficient. Going to try silpat see if changes. Bought 3 pans with idea to goof around cycling them all through, baking lots of cookies quickly. haven't used but once so verdict still out on heavy being useful in home setting.
These sheets generate perfect cookies every time. The surface heats exactly the same across the sheet. You get a nice crispy cookie. Something you can't get with the insulated sheets.
We are extremely avid bakers in our house. We had two cookie sheets that were over twenty years old. We simply needed another and wanted to give my brother a few for Christmas. We could not find the company who made the original sheets anywhere on line. Turns out that Vollrath bought the other company in the 1990"s, so they are making that cookie sheet. I have to say, they are even better than the original! Don't bother looking for any other cookie sheet - you've found the best.
Yes- this is the top-rated cookie sheet by Cooks Illustrated Magazine. But often, I don't agree with "best" ratings. In this case, I totally agree! These are "heirloom quality" cookie sheets, to be passed down to an appreciative cook in the next generation. KaTom offers the *absolute best* price on these beauties, I've ordered these in pairs several times, including as gifts.
Purchased on recommendation of ATK. I use the cookie sheet for baked goods. It transfers heat well without the problems of non-stick and with parchment paper it stays relatively clean. The two opposing handles on either end make it easy to slide items off the tray as well as easy to turn in the oven. The only negative thing I can think of is that it wouldn't fit in the small ovens I've encountered in Japan and Korea... but I don't have to worry about that now :)
Spouse makes over 80 dozen cookies at Christmas. Also, great for full loaves of garlic bread for dinner guests. Easy clean surface and presentation is quality!
After years of using any cookie sheet, I decided to order a Volrath product since I was so happy with their other products. These are much, much better quality than what I have seen elsewhere at big box or kitchen specialty shops, and these cost less. I've used them several times, and believe that they will last a long time. Heavy, solid construction. Very happy with purchase.
I use the cookie sheets to bake cookies, artisanal bread, scones,and pizza.
