Veggie Roasting Pans?

pongstress Jan 6, 2011 02:14 PM

Looking for a good pan for roasting veggies. Here are my requirements:

1) Dishwasher safe, easy cleaning
2) Large
3) Sliced veggies (occasionally diced)
4) Rimmed
5) High temp (no warping)
6) Good browning
7) Double duty (cookies?) would be nice.

Can you suggest good pans and where I can buy them (online preferred)? Is Wilton good?

thank you!

      I have the regular version (aluminized stainless steel) and it's great for roasting veggies.

      I am thicking that you can get one from any local restaurant kitchen supply stores. They are inexpensive and extremely functional.

      Katom offers online sale for restaurant heavy duty baking pans:

        I use restaurant supply half-sheet pans, with sheets of parchment cut in half from full sheets. Maybe you can get half-sheet pan sized parchment, I just had full size so I cut it in half.

        I don't put them in the dishwasher, though. Sometimes all I do is rinse them off.

          Exactly what I do. 1/2 sheet aluminum sheet pan lined with parchment. Nothing to wash afterwards.

            You can get pre-cut half-sheet parchment, but it's sometimes hard to find. (And the brand the local people carry only comes in 1000 sheet cases, while they've got 50 sheet packs of full size.) It's also a little bit more expensive.

            If you look a bit, you can also get parchment cut to fit other commercial pan sizes, like 8 and 9 inch cake pans.

              Yep half sheet pans. But I dont use parchment. Do you still get browning on the bottom?

                Parchment gives you great browning on the bottom with easy clean up

                  Cool thanks. I will keep that in mind.

            I picked up an excellent jelly roll type pan at Home Goods. In fact I go there often, searching for good kitchen items. What you find there will be discounted. And just like everywhere, there will some junk. But good stuff too! I have bought several high quality baking pans there over time.

              My Costco occasionally has a package deal of 2 1/2 sheet pans and a 1/4 sheet. My most recent purchase was a couple of months ago when the manufacturer was Nordicware. Good quality and value.

              I love my Chicago Metal jelly roll pans. Bought them online from Amazon. No warping and I use them for everything including roasting veggies. I don't put them in the dishwaher because they are a little to tall for my dishwaher.
