You want one of these Matfer steel pans!

For years, I've been singing the praises of my black steel baking sheets. (Mine are 12x19.) They put a nice crisp crust on things, so you wouldn't want them as your only baking sheet. I got mine at Bridge's-suggested by Martha back in the 90's- but they stopped carrying them years ago. This week I found a new source: http://www.culinarycookware.com/catalog.asp?catid=4500&prodid=76500

I just got a 13-inch round one this week, and I love it. It is identical to the one I got so many years ago at Bridges: http://www.culinarycookware.com/catalog.asp?prodid=76700&catid=4500&product=ROUND%20OVEN%20SHEET

BTW, as long as you are ordering, Culinary Cookware also sells really good parchment, also made by Matfer. It comes in a sturdy box that you can set on end. You can pull out one sheet at a time-the box has an opening w/ tabs to open and close it.

And if you are still looking for more ways to spend your money, they sell Matfer biscuit cuters individually. I always wanted them, but not enough to buy a whole set of fluted and plain. I just picked a few sizes-much cheaper for my use.

Enjoy!

I second the motion for the these pans.  I have the rounds for individual pizzas and the sheets for baking.  At the school we used the black sheets in with a piece of parchment for roasting, baking, anything that required good heat.


 I still prefer the Matfer black steel tarte pans (removeable bottom quiche) for the best browning, although their dark nonstick is good for quick baking and lazy dishwasher cleaning.

Resistance is futile <G>

Now, where do I find this black tart pan...

Edited to say-the same place: http://www.culinarycookware.com/catalog.asp?prodid=61600&catid=3600&product=FLUTED%20TART%20MOLD

Glenys, this IS what you are talking about, right?

Yes, at excellent prices at that.  I could buy more but have dozens, although if they had..........

I saw the tart pans today at SLT; had never noticed them before. I couldn't decide on sizes, so I'll go back another day.

Oh, great enabler, I'll be shopping online this rainy Sunday morning.  And thanks for the tip on parchment paper.  I am so tired of buying rolls, substandard stuff, I miss my big boxes of sheet pan size from the bakery.

Matfer rules...for lots of stuff. Most of which I buy in Paris :)

the parchment I have, although I didn't buy it from culinary cookware.


The baking sheets I will have to buy. Good thing it's April and they are not expensive. ;-)
