Use and Care for Natural Aluminum

Use and Care for Natural Aluminum

• Before initial use and after subsequent uses, hand wash with warm, soapy water.

• Dishwasher use is not advised as discoloration will occur due to the cleaning agents used in automatic dishwasher detergent. This discoloration is merely cosmetic and will not affect baking properties or safety of the pan.

• Natural aluminum pans work well with parchment paper, silicone baking mats, and also traditional butter or shortening and flour methods. When roasting savory foods such as vegetables, butter or cooking oil work well.

• Nylon, wood, or silicone utensils are recommended. Metal utensils and scouring pads may scratch natural aluminum pans, but will not affect baking performance

• Aluminum is reactive to acidic ingredients such as vinegar and tomato products. These foods may darken, pit or corrode the pan after prolonged use.

    We purchased these for cooking having tried out ones purchased physically.Very sturdy, heavy weight and easy to clean.We also purchased some non-stick versions – those are not as strong (they bend), thinner gauge material and not that easy to clean.Go with this version rather than the non-stick. We use silicone sheets on these plain aluminium versions with no issues.

    It’s a great delight to have this set. They are very sturdy aluminium trays and will not bend or warp easily. The set contains 1x half sheet pan, 1x jelly roll pan , and 1x quarter sheet pan. They are really high quality from Nordic Ware and could be a perfect gift for any baker. I would highly recommend. Just make sure you DO NOT put in dishwasher. They will last for years! Thank you Amazon Australia for swift delivery! 👍

    Solid and heavy, these are great

    Great set of three, unfortunately one arrived with light marking but was provided a partial refund. The sizes are perfect, I find myself cycling all three constantly.To care for them I personally always use parchment paper and let them cool before rinsing. They need to be treated as a non-stick item.

    I bought these after a youtuber exclaimed her love for these trays with lids. She would cook pasta bakes and casseroles and then put them directly into the fridge without needing tuperware (more dishes to wash). It’s not very space efficient to do this so I’ll stick with my tupperware but I appreciate the option of using the lids. Two of these trays are perfect for one person meal prepping a couple of days. Together they fit a quarter of a medium pumpkin sliced or a full cauliflower in florets. In Australia, the ovens are not as wide as in the US so they don’t fit side by side. I put one tray on each rack and then I switch them midway through cooking (my gas oven has uneven heat distribution). The quality feels sturdy and I think they will last a lifetime. Like the others, I find the logo placement very annoying but not annoying enough to buy the more expensive version of the same trays (also available on amazon). I don’t notice the logos anymore because I line my trays with silicone baking mats. I bought 2 silicone mats cheap from ebay and then traced around the edge of each tray (upside down on the mat) and cut it to leave a perfectly fitted silicone baking mat that has raised edges and corners that perfectly prevents juicy spills. The veg caramelise on the silicone rather than on the metal. This makes cleanup a breeze and extends the life of my trays. I only wish I wasn’t so impatient as it only took 1 time in the oven without a mat to get black marks from caramelising veg on my pristine silver trays. Sadly, no amount of scrubbing has removed the marks. For making fries, I bought the Checkered Chef Cooling Rack Set of 2 from amazon that fit perfectly into these trays but I don’t recommend them as the steel feet scratched my trays and they weren’t as good as my kmart oven wire basket.

    . A little expensive but an excellent product

    I never thought I would reach out for this tray everyday. It’s become essential for me. This tray is just the right size, easy to grab, light and sturdy. I don’t only use it for baking small batches but to hold ingredients while weighing. It does everything that a plate could and I can drop it without fearing breakage. I never knew how I survived without this tray!

  8. Sneha

    I didn’t know it would make everything easier – roasting veggies (easy clean up after), baking cakes, using as a tray. its a workhorse- use it for everything hasn’t warped.Had bad experience with trays before so was hesitant to buy this. However, after buying this- I wondered why i spent money on 5 cheaper trays that couldn’t be used after 3-4 use in oven when i could have saved those and buy set of these

    Very important review between Vollrath and Nordic
    After months (close to a year) of searching and trialing different baking sheets, I have found the perfect (or two perfect) ones for your consideration. I am hoping this to be a very informative review and I hope you will like it! I hope this is going to be helpful to you. Learn from my experience (and trial and error) so you buy the correct baking sheet the first time—save you time, money, and energy.This review is going to focus on two of my favorite brand’s QUARTER SHEET BAKING SHEETS. The results may or may not apply to HALF SHEETS or any other sizes. Why? Because a manufacturer may make their products differently for different product lines. Just like Ford may make good truck but not their sedans, or Subaru makes good SUVs but not necessarily pickups. It’s just an analogy! Anyway, Nordic and Vollrath are being compared here. I didn’t get the Chicago Metallic brand… maybe next time!!To start – I baked side-by-side using both brands and here are my findings:They are both “standard sized” quarter sheets – but one is slightly larger than the other. The Vollrath brand is slightly larger (or perhaps Nordic is slightly smaller??). Your “standard size” quarter-sheet baking rack will sit perfectly inside the Vollrath sheet flush and flat. On the other hand, the same rack will not sit flush in Nordic pan. In fact, you will have to very carefully balance the rack on the edge of the Nordic quarter-sheet … and if you but it just a little . .. . slush~ the rack will fall into the pan or fall off entirely.See the attached photos. So, is backing rack an important feature for your particular bake job? If yes, then you will have a hard time using the Nordic brand—either that or you have to buy purposefully smaller sized baking rack than what is “standard sized.” If not, who cares. I do need a baking rack for many of the things I bake—a rack that falls off easily is not acceptable to me. But who needs a rack for cookies? Wings? You have to think about this aspect for your own purposes.Manufacturing: the Nordic pan was perfect in attention to details. The photo of the back of the quarter-sheet pan shows you how each manufacturer rolled their heavy duty aluminum. Nordic rolled theirs much more perfectly and more detailed. See photo. On the other hand, Vollrath pan was kind of …Meh~ Like as if the manufacturer said “that’s good enough of a roll.” Does the bad rolling job make the Vollrath pan useless? No. The baking result is not impacted from my test-baking. But there’s something to be said about perfection.True Heavy Weight?: Both brands claim to be “Heavy Duty.” Check out the photos: Vollrath weighs in at 348 grams while the Nordic weighs in at 460 grams. If you do the math, this means the Nordic quarter sheet is approximately 30% more material! Yes, there’s 30% more aluminum in the Nordic quarter-sheet than the Vollrath product. That’s “30% heavier” duty.. I suppose you can put it that way. But the baking result with the Vollrath is not impacted (no warping, food bakes out equally on a side-by-side bake test). So is the extra 30% more material necessary? Thin baking sheet has the problem of bending and warping during baking (this is a known problem). If the product does NOT bend of warp… 348 gm vs. 460 gm ? Hmm. I dunno.But then again .. . Nordic is heavier weight, great, but it doesn’t accommodate a “standard sized” baking rack!!! Which is more important?? Now that’s where you need to decide for yourself.If you bake often foods that require a rack, you absolutely need a smaller rack or use the Vollrath quarter sheet to accommodate standard quarter-sheet racks. The Nordic will not fit those. On the other hand, if your bake often foods that sit directly on the pan and do not need a rack, or only uses the rack sporadically, you might be better off getting the Nordic quarter sheet and enjoy its 30% heavier weight and better machine job / better attention to details. Or get both – one Vollrath for one job, one Nordic for another job.OR, go find a smaller quarter-sheet rack (say, 1/8” smaller each side) to accommodate the Nordic quarter-sheet, then you have the best of both worlds. But that means you have to buy “less than standard sized” baking rack by about 1/8” smaller each side. Why can’t just “standard sized” things work standardly? Why don’t they just work perfectly? That was my frustration with Nordic quarter-sheet this entire time. I love that quarter-sheet but whenever I needed to use a rack, Nordic became useless to me.Thickness: You can see from the photos that the Nordic quarter-sheet is slightly thicker than the Vollrath. This came from being 30% more weight/material. I am not detecting the benefit of this extra thickness. Better heat retention? More anti-warping? More stable? Heavier? Stronger?Other things: Both quarter-sheets are NOT (I repeat, NOT) safe in dishwasher. They both need to be hand washed. They both do NOT come seasoned and they are NOT non-stick. Your best bet is put down a sheet of silicon baking sheet. I personally don’t recommend aluminum foil (but that’s what everyone does). My recommendation against aluminum foil is the excessive intake of aluminum which may be associated with Alzheimer’s disease. (This is not a medical preach, please use your own research). I simply recommend you use a silicon baking mat instead of an aluminum foil bottom to avoid getting even more aluminum in your diet. I do NOT recommend baking directly on either Nordic or Vollrath quarter-sheets: food spot will be permanently baked into the pans, black scorch marks and carbon deposits will permanently cook into the aluminum sheets and there is no easy reversal (if at all). I know, it’s only $15 a quarter-sheet so it’s not too expensive. I happen to like my things to last for years. :-)I hope this has been helpful. Write me comments if you need to ask more questions. I am attaching 8 or 9 photos to help with this review. Thanks!! Happy shopping!!

    Perfect for making a box of brownies in the toaster oven.
    My oven decided to die on me when I won’t have the funds to replace it anytime soon. So I’ve been using my toaster oven anytime I need to bake something. All the sheet pans I had were either too small to bake a two person serving in or too big to fit in the toaster oven. I was a bit worried this would be too small also, but it was on sale for a price I couldn’t resist, and I’m so glad I bought it. It is a small pan, BUT I was so excited when I used it for the first time and discovered it fits a box of brownie mix PERFECTLY. Since that was the purpose I bought it for, I couldn’t have gotten a better pan. It’s thick but lightweight, very sturdy with no warping at all after half a dozen uses, easy to clean with no signs of rust anywhere, and it’s the perfect size to make a box of brownies and fits in my DeLonghi toaster oven. In fact, I’m ordering a second one because there is plenty of room to fit both pans in the toaster oven together, which will help make things easier having to cook Thanksgiving dinner with only a toaster oven and and instant pot.
