    Default Glass or ceramic baking sheets?

    In my mango dessication project I am seeing m,y need for a non-
    reactive glass or ceramic baking sheet, preferably with raised edges
    like my old steel baking sheets. Google does not seem to know what
    "glass baking sheet" means, and turns up all kinds of crap, like
    Cephalon, Pyrex *steel* baking sheets, etc.

    Does anyone know of a good source for true glass or ceramic coated
    steel baking sheets? About 12x16 inches or so would be best.

    Thanks!

    I found one:

    http://www.purenature24.com/shop/a27...eet-large.html

    and it measures 13.5 x 16.75 inch, but I'll bet that's the measure of
    the edges and not the "inside" space.

    Just wondering if there are more different kinds available.

    I have never heard of a glass baking sheet. What about the glass in
    your microwave? My old one did not have a turntable, so it had a
    square glass plate on the bottom...

    Brilliant, Merry. We kept the glass plate from our Amana RadarRange. It
    makes a fine liner to protect the kitchen shelf where the houseplants live
    (and thrive). Polly

    I may have to go with ceramic coated baking pans, like this one:

    A "glass baking sheet" would be a pan.

    Have you considered a silicone liner for your metal baking sheets?
    (Apparently silicone sheets are not stiff enough to be used on their
    own, like metal.)

    I prefer to keep glass out of the kitchen as much as possible. Will
    parchment not do the job?

    If you can do without the raised edges, try your local glazier.

    I wouldn't put anything in my oven other than borosilicate glass.

    I wonder if a pizza stone would fill the OPs bill.

    Corningware used to market ceramic sheets, 20 x 14 inches, a little more than
    1/8" thick. Smooth top, rippled bottom, with five glued-on rubber feet. They
    were intended to be large hot plates, etc. I don't know what they called them.

    One problem with them has always been that the rubber feet always come off. I
    have two of these, without rubber feet, and have used them to bake cookies and
    breadsticks, and to make candy, in a pinch.

    The odd thing is that I thought of these, and actually got up to go measure one
    in the kitchen, before it dawned on me that I had one sitting right here on my
    lap! I regularly use it as a laptop desk, and sometimes as a temporary
    whiteboard. Damned handy things to have around. 8

    Anyway, you should be able to find these on ebay.

    Non-stick coated metal sheet pans are non reactive.
    Stainless steel sheet pans are non reactive.

    I've never heard of glass/ceramic coated steel baking sheets... best
    you're gonna find are shallow glass/ceramic caserole pans.

    Normal brained people who want non reactive sheet pans use whatever
    fercocktah metal pans they happen to have and they buy a box of
    parchment/wax paper.

    Parchment for baking is not wax paper. Wax would melt.

    Ah, they were marketed by Corelle and Corning as "Counter Savers," in both the
    large size I have and 14" x 10". They came with various patterns, as well as
    plain (which mine are). There are indeed a number available on ebay.

    I have two of the 14 x 20 and yes they are handy. Ordinarily they stay on
    each side of the kitchen sink; easy to clean and nearly impossible to
    damage. Just now, one is serving as a bridge between one sewing machine
    table and its neighbor. Polly

    They sound like a glass hot pad that I have, and on mine, the
    decorative sheet underneath is starting to peel off. I've already
    replaced the rubber feet that came off from repeated washings.

    Any suggestions about the peeling issue?

    Your brain is melted, Thorazine... but that should be no surprise.
    One can certainly bake on waxed paper, been for more then 50 years, in
    fact I've never bought parchment paper for cooking... at one time I
    actually used to save the parchment paper from sticks of butter in my
    freezer but never found a use for them so into the trash they went.
    Ordinary waxed paper works very well for baking.
