What will you be using it for? That would make a difference as to what option you might purchase - if a purchase even is necessary. ;o)

We were given one of these gorgeous Dansk pans https://food52.com/shop/products/3717-dansk-kobenstyle-baker as a wedding gift (thank you, Andrea) nearly forty years ago. I've used it constantly ever since. It's so versatile, perfect for so many things - lasagne and casseroles of all kinds, stuffing, brownies (use a parchment sling), roasting chickens (particularly good for this because you can put it on the stovetop, so you can make your gravy in it), etc. I would use it for whatever you're making, no question. ;o)

9x13 is a standard size here in the USA so there are a *LOT* of choices. Different materials have different properties so pick one (or more) wisely based on what you plan to use it for most frequently.

There are non-metal materials such as ceramic, borosilicate glass (trade name: Pyrex), and enamel.

For baking pans, these are generally steel, often with a nonstick coating applied.

If you want to spend a lot of money, go to a store like Williams-Sonoma, Sur La Table or the Food52 Store right here.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money, go to a restaurant supply store.

I shop at restaurant supply stores for this type of thing but that's just me.

It's worth mentioning that 9x13 is basically the same dimensions as a quarter sheet pan, a US restaurant industry standard. You can buy those at restaurant supply stores as well.

As an industry standard there are accessory items (e.g., precut parchment paper liners, silicone baking mats, wire racks) that are specifically sized for quarter sheet pans.

I have a couple of half sheet pans and a couple of quarter sheet pans.

Anyhow best of luck.

Not a brand recommendation, but yes on materials or construction.
For safety under broiler, avoid various plastic or synthetic handles.
For long use and easier cleaning and handling, avoid non-stick coating.
Yes consider: cast iron (plain or ceramic coated), ceramics, multi layer metal (like copper in between steel).
You will be able to use this pan for roasting, baking and grilling.
And now (in wake of Black Friday) us a good time to find them on sale.
