This Colorful Ceramic Baking Sheet Is the 'Best Pan You Will Ever Cook On,' According to Reviewers
If the words "baking sheet" conjure images of scratched, faded, and warped metallic gray trays, it might be time to swap yours out with something a little more cheery. Looks aren't everything, especially when it comes to your cooking equipment, but some options are an exception to the rule, including one pretty baking sheet that Amazon shoppers adore for more reasons than appearances.
Sure, at face value Farberware's Ceramic Nonstick Baking Sheet might boast a pretty facade, but it's equally as useful. The steel is coated in a playful aqua, nonstick ceramic and features a quilted base, which combined, is what the brand considers to be its "Purecook Ceramic" technology.

The nonstick coating is PFOA- and PTFE-free, but you still get the same slip-right-off results that you love and expect from typical nonstick equipment. "I bought one of these a few months back and my husband begged me to replace all of our bakeware with this stuff," explained one reviewer. "Everything just slide[s] right off!" Another person, who titled this sheet the "best pan you will ever cook on" mentioned that even their ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls were slipping around the pan with ease.
In fact, the nonstick tray beats out quite a few of its competitors in terms of how easy it is to slide food right off, with shoppers comparing it to brands like Teflon. Even a science fair project found evidence of its superb ability to avoid crusty, burnt-on food.
"We tested this product against an aluminum baking sheet, a bronze/nonstick baking sheet, an airbake/insulated baking sheet, metallic baking sheet, and a Pampered Chef stoneware baking sheet and this pan gave the best results when tested with nothing added to the pan," the experimenter noted. So your cooking oils might get a break once and for all.
That quilted bottom layer comes in handy, too, and not just for transferring your food from sheet to plate. The fun texture contributes to even cooking and a tray that won't warp permanently down the road.
And despite its little peaks and valleys, the sheets are "a dream to clean," according to reviewers. Fried chicken, potato wedges, chocolate chip cookies, and burnt barbecue sauce are just a small sampling of items that slid right off for shoppers with no heavy-duty scrubbing. In fact, a few people noted a good wipe down is usually all it needs.
Your old standbys had a good run, but this sleek ceramic tray from Farberware will be a much-loved replacement. Not only will you cut down on scraping and cleaning time, but you'll be adding a burst of unexpected color to your kitchen.
