This is a thumpingly solid baking sheet much larger than previous standard ones I've owned. I wasn't expecting from the picture that it actually had 3 raised flanges (one of the shortest sides was flat). The only slightly dumb thing I did, was not to measure the oven- it does fit, but only if you dispense with a shelf and slide it in to replace a shelf, (and no you can't turn it the other way round to fit). It states 5 years guarantee, tells you to wash it in soapy water first, only heat to 230 degrees C, and don't use metal utensils or cut food on the surface (well that's all our intention to start with isn't it!). It also comes with a recipe for "gingerbread people" (how precious!).
And just to be awkward, I bought it to try out the Silicone Baking Mat (38cm x 30cm). Heavy Duty Non-Stick Silicone Bakeware + 10 Year Guarantee
which fits perfectly on the surface. It may be a bit of overkill but all the shops were out of silicone paper last Xmas, and I thought- why go through all the bother when you could get something you can reuse.
Baking test update to follow when I've found the next yummy out of Baking Made Easy
. I've now tried out the sheet + silicone lining on croissants with no additional greasing. They came out extremely well. There was enough circulation at the back of the oven for my "substitute shelf" and I'm really very pleased with the results and the fact that it gave me far more than the normal space for individual pastries.
Maybe I should have just used the Kindle though - it looks non-stick!
