Specialized baking sheet - use?

Saw 2 of this KitchenAid branded baking pan in a thrift shop. It’s basically half-sheet sized with typical lip on one end but the other has a sloped edge like it might be designed for letting stuff slide off (or on).

Any ideas as to actual intended use?


It’s for cookies according to The Kitchn.



Thank You!!!

Check out the reviews on Amazon for that pan - 94% rate it 4-star and higher.


Cool pan and great score! Looks like your GW has a good book selection too.

I didn’t get them yet, but I may now that I know what they are and how happy users are with them (thanks @MunchkinRedux). There are 2 there that I can get for $4.80 total. They’re both in good used condition. The surface imperfections are shallow and not as much as they seem in the photo - some of that is just places where the baked-on patina is uneven or has rubbed off. I do wonder wonder how much that patina will interfere with the original non-stick function, though.

They do have a very good books section, categorized by age and for older readers, they try to break into genres. This is a Humane Society thrift. It’s run with 2 employees and I think 8 or 10 rotating retiree volunteers. I mostly browse the kitchen and appliances sections which are decent, but the majority of the store is clothing.

I did get these teak bowls for $6.40. Hardly used, if the fact that the “Dolphin” brand stickers are still largely intact is any indication. They’re kind of weird because the base diameter is 15% wider than the top, but I thought they looked fun. I sent photos to 2 of my daughters and they both wanted them so I guess they’re destined to be split up 2 and 2.


I think the big selling point for me is that it appears hell-for-stout, and isn’t likely to warp.

You shouldn’t have any problems with the pans, since you can always put some parchment paper down for your cookies, or whatever you may be baking/roasting. I think my mind jumped to GW since the shelving looks exactly like my local GW! In any case, I love thrifting and have gotten some great things there, including a lot of cookbooks and canning jars.

I can imagine your DD’s wanting the wooden bowls - the youngers seem to really like the retro stuff, at least mine do.

That’s for sure. But in my family it seems more of a girl thing - all 3 of my daughters started buying clothes at thrift shops early in their HS years and got more than half of their clothes that way. A lot of their HS buddies did, too. They still regularly go thrifting for clothing and knickknacks[1].

My son is still home (HS senior) and may wear a shirt one of his sisters got him thrifting if it’s essentially brand new, but certainly isn’t enthused about it like they were.

[1] I just realized this word has 4 Ks. Are there words with 5 or more?
