What's your favorite sheet pan?

I'm looking to buy some new sheet pans (also called "jellyroll pans"), and I'm wondering if anyone has ones that they love. I'll mostly be using them for roasting vegetables and baking cookies. I'm willing to pay a premium for something that performs well and will last.

I use commercial half-sheet pans. They're really too big for most jelly roll recipes, but they're far sturdier than the ones sold in most retail stores.

I don't think Michael is necessarily looking for a sheet pan to cook a "jelly roll", June. It's often called a "jell roll pan" I've slowly converted to All-Clad's baking sheets and bake ware.

I have had good service from NordicWare half-sheet and quarter-sheet pans. Plain, bright aluminum; sturdy; made in the US; available online at a reasonable price.

I usually get whatever is heavy duty at the restaurant supply store or the CIA. I somehow ended up with one that Thomas Keller left behind that is Vollrath Wearever, 18 gauge. (even has an etching of a clothespin on the back)

I have several, my favorite, hands down is my stone baking sheet from Pampered Chef. It roasts vegetables to perfection with little to NO oil as the stone absorbs oil therefor, flavor. I used it for bar cookies as well. I also have a stone baking pan from Rada that I roast larger amounts of veggies, cassoulets, biscuits etc. Simple to clean, no soap just scrape off bits. If you decide you want one do a girl a solid and purchase off my Amazon account through my blog ;} http://astore.amazon.com...

Happy baking!

I have a bunch of various makes, materials and vintages. My favorites are a cafeteria kitchen commercial half-sheet that bears the patina of use and age, and a much newer Goldtouch half-sheet from Williams-Sonoma. Look for the periodic 20% off sale on the WS pans.

I have two "Lincoln WEAR-EVER no. 5303" heavy sheet pans. They are nice and solid. Not sure if they are as heavy as professional but they may be. I really like them. Got them at Zabar's some years ago.

Chicago Metallic sheet pans are good, but I have all kinds and really, you just want one thick enough so it doesn't warp easily. There's almost nothing as frustrating as a warped sheet pan.
