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.
a baking sheet that should last a very long time.
I make very thin linzer cookies, so I have to roll out the dough on the sheet and remove the excess. Since these cookie sheets are thick and sturdy, I can get an even thickness - no sagging in the middle. The best part is how evenly the cookies bake, from the edge to the middle of the sheet. It makes my labor of love a little less laborious and more joyful. I am so happy with them, I ordered a whole bunch to give to to Mom and friends, and more for me of course!
These cookie sheets were highly recommended on cooksillustrated website which is why I purchased them. These are the best cookie sheets I've ever used- I don't think you can burn cookies on these sheets even if you tried. I highly recommend this product! The only downside in my opinion is they take longer than average to cool however that problem can certainly be solved by purchasing extra cookie sheets! I also highly recommend ordering from Katom- the best prices!
I got the recommendation for these cookie sheets from Cooks Illustrated and they were right; the cookies come out slightly crisp on the bottom and moist on top...a wonderful combination. But, you have to adjust your cooking time to account for the heft of the sheet. They take longer to heat up and seem to never cool down between uses. I'm glad I bought three to rotate. Also, you can use parchment paper to prepare the cookies and put them on a warm sheet. The problem is is that by the time I've figured out the correct cooking time, the batter is almost gone. It could be a learning curve. I've used them three times for cookie recipes that yield only 2 dozen...not a lot of time to figure out the cooking time. One time I got it right though (in a 4 dozen cookie recipe) and the results were great. I'll keep on trying since I had to throw out my old pans.
These cookie sheets had the highest rating from a well-known, no-advertising cooking magazine, and KaTom had the best price.
