I use the ones like Andy does from Sams. They work great!

I have been using 1/2 sheet pans for years for my cookies, in different size ovens (have a large convection one now) and I always get good results. I can get between 20 and 24 cookies per sheet and they come out perfectly.

I'll second that. Love my Fibrament stone. Eric at Breadtopia sells them. I think I remember that you've done business with him before, but in case you haven't, I highly recommend him for his great customer service.

Eric & I have become friends. I send a lot of people to him.

I have a 14" x 15" stone that's just right for two free-form loaves of Challah or Italian. I proof them right on the peel with parchment paper and corn meal, and I'm very pleased with the outcome.

Tonight me and DW made a batch of choc chips with red & green M&M's in the new pan. I trimmed a sheet of parchment paper for the bottom, and we made two sheets of 30 cookies on each. It cut the baking time in half from using the old smaller pans.

Tomorrow I have to make 6 loaves of Italian for a spaghetti dinner for 40 adults in the evening. I'll be able to get 4 loaves on the new pan, which will cut baking time by one batch. Saves me at least 30 minutes in the kitchen.

Yessiree, this is the pan I was after. It has done just what I wanted it to...



This will really be a big help when baking bread for the church bake sales. Four loaves at a pop will really move things along for me.

Made my first batch of sandwich rolls in the new pan. Cuts my baking time in half, because the entire recipe fits on one sheet. I actually did go back and bought another pan, which turned out to be the last one on the shelf. Must have been DC'ers because he said he has not sold one of those pans in about 6 weeks, then he sells 8 of them in one week, all since I bought my first one. Hmmmmmm....could it be the lurkers scarfing them up?
