Types of Sheet Pans
Non-Stick - A non-stick sheet pan is easy to maintain because food will not stick to it as they cook
Aluminum - An aluminum sheet pan is light and versatile but does not age well over time. Also the aluminum may react with acidic foods, damaging the sheet.
Textured - A textured sheet pan prevents food from sticking to it.
Enameled Cast Iron - An enameled cast iron sheet pan is usually coloured and has a very thick bottom. If using one, you will likely have to run a few tests first and possibly increase the cooking time of your recipes.


Choosing The Right Lining

Aluminum Foil - Aluminum foil is perfect for cooking at very high temperatures especially when broiling. It is also practical when using spices that could stain your sheet pan.

Silicone Mat - The beauty of a silicone mat is that it is reusable over and over again. It is not recommended for use under the broiler or at room temperature above 425 F which could cause it to deteriorate.

Parchment Paper - Parchment paper is ideal to help keep pans clean, but you should avoid using it under the broiler as it may burn. Avoid using waxed paper which tends to burn and stick to foods. It's best to use an unlined, non-stick sheet pan when making a recipe with sauce since the sauce could seep under the paper.
