T-fal AirBake Natural 2 Pack

Speed is of the Essence

You'd think that cookies sheets don't differ that much from each other but T-fal AirBake here can prove that notion dead wrong. It gives you the best baking results every single time and there are a couple of reasons why it's able to do that.

First, there's the company's signature Micro-Dome technology that decreases the bake time by up to 15% compared to average insulated bakeware. Then, there's the Air Insulation technology. Insulated construction of their sheets essentially surrounds a layer of air. The air, in turn, reduces the temperature of the surface.

This way, the bottom sheet blocks the direct oven heat, all while the layer of air performs a role of an insulator, preventing the upper sheet from overheating. A design like that gives you improved browning and reduces the chances of burning to an absolute minimum.

Other than that, what we really like about T-fal AirBake is its boardless design. Thanks to the latter, you're able to move the cookies from the sheet to the plate without utensils. Plus, it makes the sheets dishwasher safe.

As far as we're concerned, the product's only weak spot is the fact that the finish isn't scratch-resistant. It doesn't affect the performance of the non-stick coating, just makes the whole thing a little less attractive.

In short, T-fal AirBake offers arguably the best cookie sheets on the market today. Their sheets are as suitable for beginners looking to bake their first batch of cookies as they are for experienced cooks and professionals who want that restaurant-quality food in the comforts of their own home.

Rachael Ray 3-Piece

Baking Made Easy and Fun

Rachael Ray 3-Piece is a product that's as much about aesthetics as it is about improving the end result. For a fair price, it gives you 3 different but equally attractive cooking sheets. The largest adds up to 11" x 17", the medium is a little more compact at 10" x 15", while the smallest one features just 9"x 13" in overall dimensions.

The dark gray tone with a slight shade of black of the steel housing sets the sheets apart from their competition. The steel is highly durable, resists warping, and its long-lasting non-stick coating ensures great food release and easy cleanup.

Of course, the number of different sheets is a huge part of the product's appeal in and of itself. With these sheets, you'll be able to enjoy the convenience of having three different sizes. They' are just as suitable for making cookies as they are for roasting stuffed eggplant, broiling cheesy garlic bread, and a whole bunch of other meals.

Finally, each cookie sheet incorporates bold-colored (agave blue), extra-wide silicone handles. These handles give you a confident grip, so you'll be able to effortlessly pull the sheets from the oven. Plus, they are oven safe to 500°F.

Bottom line, this 3-piece set of cookie trays from Rachael Ray is good for more than just cookies. Their sleek streamlined appearance will make them a great addition to your cookware collection. The sheets are perfect for preparing sweet and savory treats and make baking easy and fun.

Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Big

Cook in Batches

Nordic Ware Natural is a simple, affordable, and effective piece of cookware that will allow you to bake a great batch of cookies in no time at all.

As far as we're concerned, the best part about it is the large surface area. With 15" x 21" in overall dimensions, that surface area is about 35% larger compared to a standard baking pan. Nevertheless, it still fits any standard-sized oven.

The aluminum construction, as per usual, gives you excellent heat conductivity, so your cookies rise and heat evenly and you don't end up with baked goods under or overcooked in different areas. Plus, it takes less time to heat up, meaning you waste less time waiting for the cookies to bake and more time enjoying them. It is pure aluminum, so it will never rust.

On top of its aluminum construction, the manufacturers have incorporated a galvanized steel reinforcement around the rims. It gives the cookie sheet extra strength and durability, so it will not deform with time. Unfortunately, it doesn't slide as easily into the oven as coated cookware but we'll hardly call it a major disadvantage.

To sum it all up, Nordic Ware Natural gives you but a single cookie sheet. But don't let that discourage you. This is a quality piece of bakeware through and through, made of the most durable and highly recyclable materials. All in all, a great purchase for people who prefer batch cooking.

Good Cook Set Of 3 Non-Stick

Treat Your Loved Ones

Who said you have to stop at cookies? No, don't get us wrong, cookies are awesome. But a quality set of cookie sheets can do so much more for you than that and this Good Cook set is nothing if not quality. In return for less than 25 bucks, you'll receive 3 different sheets.

Using the smallest (9" x 13"), medium (10" x 15"), or the largest (11" x 16.5") pan, you'll be able to satisfy all of your baking needs.

Each of the sheets incorporates a heavy-duty non-stick coating. It makes clean-up easy as you don't have to scrub the remainings away every time you bake anything. It keeps the sheets looking brand new. And since food doesn't stick to it, you can easily move the cookies from the tray to the plate with any wooden or silicone paddle.

The steel construction has its pluses and minuses. On one hand, it doesn't burn your food, so you won't have to use parchment or bakery-release paper. On the other, the material is a little prone to deformation under high temperatures (over 375°F). It doesn't make a difference for cookies but it might limit your cooking options a little bit in other areas.

But even with that in mind, this 3-piece set from Good Cook with its 3 excellent rimmed baking sheet is nothing short of value. The sheets are just as suitable for pies as they are for cookies. They'll let you showcase your culinary skills and treat your loved ones to wholesome homemade goodies.

USA Pan 1606CR Half Sheet

Switch It Up

USA Pan 1606CR is very different compared to every other entry on this list. For starters, the product is what's known as a half-sheet pan. In addition to the usual cooking surface, it gives you a cooling rack for baking and roasting veggies, cakes, and, of course, cookies.

Equipped with a unique corrugated surface, the model facilitates air flow. It gives you a quick release and evenly baked goods. The aforementioned cooling rack incorporates a crosswire design and six raised feet. This way, you get extra stability and even uniform cooling.

As you can imagine, a construction like that greatly increases your cooking options and makes this piece of bakeware a much more versatile item. Aside from a range of other applications, the cooling rack is particularly great for fatty, greasy foods. The fat and juice will drip down the sheet, reducing the meal's calorie content.

The only problem with the cooling rack is the usual problem with steel as in it's susceptible to corrosion.

The non-stick silicone coating effortlessly releases cookies off your pan. Needless to say, it also makes clean-up about as easy as it gets.

In closing, USA Pan 1606CR will prove a perfect choice for people who are looking for a truly versatile piece of kitchenware. With it, you'll be able to alternate a nice batch of cookies with tender, juicy meat and a killer grill crust.

What Is a Cookie Sheet?

Who doesn't like cookies? They're like an edible hug made of flour, sugar, chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, oats, and a bunch of various ingredients. Plus, they're really easy to make. And, with a proper cookie sheet, this little baking procedure is about to become even easier. Sometimes referred to as a sheet pan, a baking sheet, or a baking tray, what we're dealing with here is, more often than not, a simple flat metal tray onto which you place the soon-to-be cookies before loading it into an oven.

Now, there's a good chance you already have a basic baking pan, so why would you need an extra piece of cookware that doesn't seem any different? Well, it may not seem that different but cookie sheets and baking pans aren't as similar as you'd think. From extra little accessories to differences in housing and construction, these little variations add up and, in the end, make a pretty considerable difference, enough to justify a separate product.

Sticking with the pan theme, you can also grab a new bread pan or a pizza pan and treat your loved ones to delicious homemade goodies.
