We also filled three baking sheets with sliced strawberries and bananas, covered them similarly, and froze them. While the lid did bow a bit, it wasn’t damaged and gradually snapped back into shape once the weighty items were removed.
After slathering on a mix of oil, mustard, and garlic, we washed the lid and found no evidence of staining. To test durability, we weighed down the lid with 10 pounds of food items, checking its condition while weighted and afterward.
We also slathered it with a mix of foods, washed it by hand 10 times, and ran it through the dishwasher twice, checking it for stains or lingering scents. We also wanted a lid that could withstand multiple washings without showing excess wear, and didn’t stain.
This smaller version of the Downtown Block secured all our knives nicely, though the blade of the slicing knife stuck out a bit. An acrylic guard afforded extra protection against contact with blades but made it a little harder to insert knives and to clean; the wood itself got a little scratched during use.
This is small, scratch-resistant model had a stable, rubber-lined base and could hold all our knives, though the blade of the 12-inch slicing knife stuck out a bit. It lacked a nonslip base, and its extra-strong magnets made it unnerving to attach or remove our heavy cleaver.
While all our knives fit securely, several of the blades stuck out, making this unit feel less safe overall. Finally, though the bristles could be removed and cleaned in the dishwasher, their nooks and crannies made this block hard to wash by hand.
This plastic block required us to aim each knife into the folds of an accordion-pleated insert that was removable for easy cleaning but got nicked easily with repeated use. Because we could only insert the knives vertically, longer knife blades stuck out; a cleaver was too wide to fit.
Few pieces of equipment get more use in the test kitchen than rimmed baking sheets. When we learned that our favorite model, the Nordic Ware Baker's Half Sheet, had a lid, we were intrigued.
And if the plastic was sturdy enough, we could stack things on top of it, maximizing space in a crowded refrigerator. To find out, we sliced eggplants into planks and divided them among three rimmed baking sheets.
Although the lid sagged a bit in the middle, it didn't touch the top of the cake, and the plastic didn't crack or look damaged afterward. We typically proof pizza dough balls in medium bowls covered with plastic wrap, which hog space in the refrigerator.
We liked that we could quickly remove and replace the lid instead of peeling back plastic or aluminum and then trying to smooth it into place again. The lid attaches to a baking sheet in two places with slim plastic strips that slide underneath the edges of the sheet's short sides.
It was enough to keep food fresh and nothing spilled when we carried the sheets around the kitchen, but it would have felt more secure if it attached on all four sides. A lid also increases the sheet's usefulness by converting it into a food storage container.
Whether you're storing food, cooking, or baking, the Nordic Ware Half Sheet Cover is sure to come in handy. It's available à la carte and as part of a set with our winning rimmed baking sheet.
To test the lid's durability, we weighed it down with heavy items, deliberately stained it, and ran it through the dishwasher 10 times. We purchased the lid online; it is sold either à la carte or as a set with the rimmed baking sheet.
Ease of Use: We attached the lid to multiple copies of our winning rimmed baking sheet, evaluating how tightly it snapped into place and how easy it was to remove. Durability: To test the lid's strength, we snapped it onto a rimmed baking sheet and placed 10 pounds of food on top.
Many recipes call for a specific type of bakeware: aluminum, nonstick, glass, insulated, black steel, or heavy gauge. Knowing the differences between these types of bakeware will give you a culinary advantage.
But their lack of edges limits their uses: Roasting, for example, is impossible on a cookie sheet, because juices will run off the pan. Affordable, durable, and easy to clean, these pans conduct heat quickly and uniformly.
To prevent such mishaps, line aluminum bakeware with parchment paper or a Silent (a French nonstick baking mat). These pans cost between $11 and $15 and are ideal for everything from baking cookies, pastries, and breads to roasting cuts of meats and vegetables.
These pans are excellent to use for puff pastry and, according to Martha, are the best baking sheets for palmier. Don't use these sheets if you want crispy edges or browned bottoms on your cookies; they are designed to prevent those results.
Keep in mind, however, that these pans vary greatly in quality, and all nonstick cookware must eventually be replaced, because the finish wears off. Also, known as jelly-roll pans, rimmed baking sheets have rolled edges, which make them ideal for bar cookies or short bread.

1The Swiss Roll like the one pictured on the left is not as popular as it should be being more of an English cake than Australian. The Swiss roll pan or tray however is a mainstay in many kitchens both homely and commercial.
Great for cooking cookies, biscuits, reheating food, grilling and broiling. The key to a good cookie tray or Swiss roll pan is a bit of weight.
Too thin and the bend and warp as well as create hot spots so your cookies or cakes don't cook evenly. All the Swiss roll pans and cookie sheets we sell are heavy gauge and built to last for many years to come so you can buy with confidence from Ever ten.
