ISO pans 26x18x2 vert-walls square-corners

.
hi, i'm a big fail.

i can;t find pans 26"x18"x2" vert-walls
square-corners would be a bonus
a one-piece solution would be best -- i want many pans.

perhaps i'm not searching with the correct cookware verbiage..
can you help?
.

The largest I've seen is an 18x24x2. That would be technically a full sheet cake. A quarter sheet cake is usually 8x12, not the standard 9x13 that most cake mixes call for. Since 9x13 is the easiest to get your hands on, that's what most people buy.

Often in bakeries 1/4 sheet cakes are cut down from larger 1/2 or full sheet cakes, so they end up 8x12 instead of 9x13.

Does this help at all?

Fat Daddios makes lots of pan sizes at pretty good prices. They have nice straight sides and square corners.

For easier handling I would personally make 2, 12x 18 cakes and put them together, a full sheet can be hard to handle.

This is assuming that you are using this for cake baking.

Sheet pans (18x26), half sheet pans (18x13) and quarter sheet pans (9x13) are of no use to you as they all have only one inch sides.

I would do a Google search on the dimensions. Then you would find this and others.

Getting close at 3" x 25.75" x 17.75". At least it has square corners and nearly vertical sides.

My cake pans all have a minimum of 2" sides, that's pretty close to standard (some inexpensive ones may come in at 1 3/4). My jellyroll sheets are barely an inch.

Yes, 2" is fairly standard for cake pans.

On the other hand, sheet pans along with half and quarter sheet pans are 1" high.

Strangely enough "sheet pans" aren't used to bake "sheet cakes". Cakes are usually categorized by "sheet pan" sizes though.

I have 1/4 sheet and 1/2 sheet jellyroll pans that are 1" but they really aren't made to bake cakes.
