If Ina Garten counts sheet pans among her favorite kitchen tools, home cooks worth their salt (or sugar) should follow suit. And when it comes to sheet pans, the Barefoot Contessa, professional pastry chefs, and bakeries rely on ones made of pure aluminum for consistently perfect results. While high-quality cookware can cost a lot, a popular set from Nordic Ware is discounted 23% ahead of Amazon Prime Day deals.
The Nordic Ware 3 Piece Baker’s Delight Set includes a quarter sheet, half sheet, and a jelly roll, offering a range of options for whatever your menu requires, all made of pure, uncoated natural aluminum. According to the company, Nordic Ware pioneered natural aluminum bakeware for the consumer market over 15 years ago. Why is it so great? The superior heat conductivity of its special hardened aluminum alloy ensures that you achieve uniform, evenly browned results every time you bake.
Pure aluminum will never rust, and the reinforced, encapsulated solid-core steel rim on Nordic Ware’s baking sheets prevents warping. Plus, the shiny and non-porous natural aluminum provides natural nonstick performance and resists scratching. Another bonus? Nordic Ware baking sheets are 100% made in the U.S.A. in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Caring for natural aluminum pans is pretty easy: Simply hand wash with warm, soapy water as the cleaning agents used in automatic dishwasher detergent may cause discoloration. (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. You’ll want to avoid acidic ingredients such as vinegar and tomato products because aluminum is reactive to them. These foods may darken, pit or corrode the pan after prolonged use.
So, add these Nordic Ware sheet pans to your Amazon cart and stock up on all the ingredients you need to start baking, roasting and more!
