Non-stick Cookie Sheets?
Over the past several years, I've switch to using all high-quality commerical half-sheet cookie sheets and have been mostly satisfied. Today, I acquired a non-stick half-sheet pan and I'm not sure what to use it for! What items would you recommend using the non-stick for? Breaded fish? Bread? Fries?
The only time I use mine is when I am roasting something and I am resting the roast on a cake rack which in turn rests on the cookie sheet. You can then pour water in the tray. This keeps the atmosphere moist, speeds up the cooking, makes the cookie sheet easier to clean and provides you with a gravy.
Your non-stick sheet will eventually become non-non-stick and you will burn oil/fat/juices onto it that you cannot get off without damaging the non-stick. But that's OK.
A heavy duty aluminium one will outlast many non-stick cookie sheets.
They work well for cookies. But personally, I use my nonstick and regular the same. If I need them nonstick I usually use a silicone mat. I would not recomend using the nonstick for items like tuile, they will run too much. The only thing I like about nonstick is that they seem easier to clean. Happy cooking!
