Don’t let the name fool you: A baking sheet is a sturdy, oven safe, shallow, rectangular pan that is ideal for baking or roasting food. They are ideal for baking breads and sweets, and are also very effective for baking chicken or fish for a healthy meal. Baking Sheets are made from metal, predominantly from aluminum or stainless steel. The edges of the pan are generally raised, to help provide a grip when removing an item from the oven so that your baked goods don’t spill on the floor when baking is completed.
While baking sheets are easy to clean, and if you snag a pan with aluminum or stainless steel, entirely safe to throw in the dishwasher.
