Baking sheets are an essential for your kitchen. Without a good cooking sheet, you risk subpar cookies, a tea party without scones, and a diet without vegetables. Choose a sheet worthy of your grandma’s ginger cookie recipe. Here are some options to help you sweeten up your kitchen.

Good Cook Nonstick Cookie Sheets

This pack of nonstick Good Cook sheets comes with small, medium, and large-sized cookie sheets that range from 13 to 17 inches long. These have a lip around their perimeters, which will keep your baked goods from overflowing on your oven rack. Forget scrubbing, stick these in the dishwasher after you’re done.

Rachael Ray’s baking sheets are made of long-lasting nonstick steel that are meant to stand the test of time. A nice feature of these sheets is the grippy blue silicone handles which make the pan easier to pull out the oven, even if you have oven mitts on. These are safe to use up to 450 degrees. These sheets, which come in the same sizes as Good Cook, are not dishwasher safe, but are easy to clean after using.

The Nordic Baker’s Half Sheets are made of pure aluminum, which the company claims helps bake your food more evenly. The package includes a two-pack of 17-by-12-inch sheets. They have to be hand washed—throwing them in the dishwasher will discolor them.
