I enjoy cooking, but have always just used a basic metal tray for whatever I
was doing. Now I've just been reading about airbake trays and stones. I
feel really dumb, but I have no idea what they are, or what difference they
would make. Say you were making a cake, or cookies, what other tricky
things are there to cook on besides a basic tray? Are there huge benefits?
I have an electric oven that bakes really unevenly even when I rotate and
swap positions of trays during cooking so I always end up with a few burned
cookies.
I read that you can't burn cookies using an airbake cookie tray - is that
really true?

Please forgive my ignorance, but any enlightenment would be great!!
