I purchased two of theseOneidaCommercial 15" Medium Cookie Sheets for two reasons. One, I only had one older cookie sheet which had seen better days. Two, I needed 2 cookie sheets that would fit into myColeman 25 qt. Party Cooler to transport trays of ham to a graduation party.
After shopping at four major stores I found theseOneidacookie sheets at Walmart. They are the perfect size for our cooler, and after throwing out my old one, I also had two new cookie sheets for baking.
Some of the great reasons to purchase these cookie sheets for me were:
Size, at a medium 15 x 10 inches they are a good size for my oven as I can place them side by side while baking.
These are commercial cookie sheets for even baking. I was surprised at the weight as they are heavier than any cookie sheets I've had before, and I'm happy with the baking results so far.
They have a non-stick surface for quick release of cookies, garlic bread, a thin cake recipe for a rolled cake, any type of frozen food that needs to be heated in the oven, our Sunday bacon.......the list is endless.
There is a one-inch rolled lip around the cookie sheet which I like as it makes a perfect party tray. Nothing will slide off if I accidentally tilt it, and for making a thin cake or a sheet of brownies, it's perfect.
You can use a vegetable cooking spray for added release, parchment paper, or cover with aluminum foil for greasy items, which also helps with cleanup. I take full advantage of all of these when baking!!
Clean up is a breeze by just washing in warm soapy water and hand drying with a towel. It does mention in the care section of the cookie sheet instructions not to use a metal tool or knife to cut food when on the cookie sheet, but to use a nylon, wooden, or teflon utensil to remove any baked items. Steel wool and abrasive cleaners can damage any non-stick surface so I always find it best to clean as soon as I am done baking, and not wait for leftover crumbs and such to dry and harden.
There is a lifetime warranty from the date of purchase against original defects.
I give Oneida a thumbs up for making a great dual purpose product for me. I'm able to use these cookie sheets not only for baking, but they are a perfect fit in our cooler, with enough room to easily lift them out without spilling anything.
