Bellemain’s Heavy Duty Aluminum Baking Pan Review

Just in time for holiday baking- Bellemain’s Heavy Duty Aluminum Baking Pan! This thing is no joke… it is HEAVY, which translates into high quality for a baking sheet. I’ve owned a few different brands of baking sheets in my adulthood. The first I loved, but my husband ruined it when he tried to remove the baked on stains with oven cleaner. Ever since then I’ve had issues finding a quality baking sheet that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. This baking sheet is heavy duty so that the bottom of whatever you’re cooking doesn’t burn.

Here are some facts as provided on their Amazon product page:

No more brown cookie bottoms, soggy spots in the pizza crust or unevenly baked baguettes! This extra-thick aluminum sheet stays flat and maintains a consistent temperature all over its surface, making it easy for you to elevate your baking game to professional standards.

10 Gauge Aluminum Won’t Warp
Very few baking pans on the market are this thick and sturdy. But that’s what you need to keep the metal from warping as it heats up. (The banging noise you hear shortly after putting your inferior 11 or 13 gauge pan in the oven is the sound of it warping.) And if the pan is warped, your cookies or rolls won’t all finish baking at the same moment, leaving you with some underdone, some overdone and some just right.

Heats Quickly and Evenly
Professional bakers prefer aluminum because it gets up to temperature faster and more evenly than any other metal except copper — which is even more important when baking times are short, as they are for most cookies. The Bellemain Baking Pan is natural finish aluminum, with no dark coating to cause burning on the bottom before the top is cooked.

2 Flat Sides Let You Slide Foods On and Off
Put your spatula away. Now you can remove just-baked cookies, pizzas and fries in a second, simply by tilting the pan! The flat sides are also convenient for transferring large dough products, such as roulades and focaccia, to the pan for baking. The other two sides have rolled edges for you to grab while you’re moving the pan to or from the oven.

Hanging Hole
The pan’s designers have even built in an extra storage solution for you: a hole for hanging it on a wall. If you have multiple Bellemain Baking Pans, they will nest together to take up minimum storage space.

 

Some of my favorite features include that it won’t warp and that it heats quickly and evenly. It drives me crazy when the cookies towards the edges are cooking significantly faster than the ones on the inside, which makes timing them (while multitasking as usual) almost impossible. After a few batches of cookies and several frozen pizzas, my baking sheet is still flat and still fabulous.
