You could produce a beautifully browned cookie that was hard as a rock if you weren't careful There is a learning curve with these.

I use that airbake pan plus I have a jellyroll pan that I also use for cookies. I never had a learning curve with them and have never had cookies turn hard as rocks, but I do watch my cookies very closely. My daughter-in-law asked me why my cookies never get dark on the bottom, so when they moved into the new house I bought her the airbake pans I have. My 5 year old grandson loves to bake cookies with mommy and he is happy that the cookies turn out like grandma's.

Currently baking cookies on aluminium: medium heavy uncoated one that just slides inside the Bosch oven or heavy hard anodized trays from Mermaid. It really comes down to the result you are after: for just golden on the edges, like sable biscuits, a thinner sheet are better. For uniform baking, like gingerbreads, nothing beats heavy. Good luck with your choice. :)
