True, true Chief!
In fact I did this with our steak the other night under the broiler... our gas grill died and since we're moving, we've decided not to buy a new one until then *sniff* I miss my grill

I don't own a rack for my quarter sheet pan,

so I use whatever sturdy vegetable that I have

on hand.

Celery works great or thick slices of Onion too.

What is it you are baking?

Charlie, she was roasting a pork loin. But it can be used for any meat to be roasted. A whole chicken can sit on them, a beef roast, anything you don't want sitting in the juices on the bottom. And it allows the heat to surround the whole piece and make the skin crispy on fowl and allow the outside to brown evenly on other pieces of meat.

And unlike a rack you don't have the often difficult task of scouring each wire one by one afterwards.

WOW WOW WOW!
I just came back from the market and got 36oz. of Best Foods Mayonnaise
for $2.99USD the regular price is $4.99
So here's my tip:
Less folks are making dishes with mayo in the recipe during this time of the year, therefore the prices have been driven down. Even though I didn't need a new jar yet, I bought one and stashed it in the cupboard for my Summer Salads, ie. Chicken, Tuna, Egg, Macaroni, etc.

We don't see that size jar for Hellmanns (Same as Best Foods) here. A couple of years ago, the normal jar size dropped from 32 ounces to 30 ounces. We always have a couple of jars in reserve.

I always stock up when they're on sale, too. Especially in the summer when I never know when I'm going to want to make a big potato salad.

I just looked at my jar of Best Foods, and it's 30 oz. I know they have bigger jars, but they're quite a bit bigger - I don't know offhand how many ounces they are.

I store mine with the handle on the right side of the drawer. I found that I was always reaching into the drawer with my right hand. Like my pans, each implement was bought individually to fit comfortably in my hand. So the end of each item is different and I can just grab it with my right hand.

You mean like the old half gallon ice cream?? Now it's 48oz. As with many things the quantity drops while the price stays the same......they didn't raise the price when they raised the price. Recently my son bought some bottled juice......the label said "New Look-Same Great Taste". I grabbed the bottle and took a closer look.....yep, 4oz less. What used to be 64oz was now 60oz.

It seems like 30 oz. is the new "quart" along with 15 oz. being the new "pint" for some products. And then there is the infamous "half-gallon" of ice cream that shrunk down to a quart and a half. Why increase the price when you can decrease the volume.
