WearEver cookie sheets are insulated to promote even baking and better browning with out burning. The aluminum sheet also decreases baking time and these cookie sheets do not rust like other brands.

I feel these are the best cookie sheets that I have ever used and I have never had an issue with them. No burning, no sticking, no rust, easy to clean and  just a perfect easy to use cookie sheet.

If the baking time for the cookie is 10 min...the baking time is 10 min and my cookies come out perfect every-time. (did I say that? It's a nice feeling).  The only problem I have is keeping my husband away from the cookies long enough to cool.

After using my air bake cookie sheet for several years of happy use, all of a sudden my cookies are burning and sticking to the point they are falling apart.  What has gone wrong?  I was sooooo happy with it before.  Is there something I can do to get my cookies to stop sticking?

I am not Impressed With this Pan

By 

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

The whole AirBake idea sounds like a great one: insulate the cookie sheets by putting a layer of air in the middle of the pan to prevent hot spots and therefore scorching. The reality is much less impressive. I don't own an AirBake because someone gave my mom one when I was a kid (one which she still owns) and she and I were both disappointed with its performance. The insulating quality seems to be more of a downfall than a perk, the air pocket causes excessive warping, and the construction is not great.

When using this pan I have not noticed any improvement in the quality of cookies, pizza, etc that were baked on it compared to the same items cooked on conventional cookie sheets. If anything, the insulation quality makes the items cook more slowly. It is difficult to get a crispy crust on a pizza with this pan.

The insulating air pocket also seems to cause the pan to warp to a worse than usual extent. I assume that the different piece may respond to heat differently, which is why the pan is more out of shape than my mothers other, older pans.

The construction seems to be lacking as the pan is not truly water-tight. It is not advisable to submerge the pan completely after a few uses because it seems that the individual plates separate somewhat. It is not noticeable when you are just looking at the pan, however, water definitely gets between the layers.

Overall, this pan is an overpriced idea that just doesn't work.

AirBake - Bakes Evenly Without Burning

By 

from USA

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

Right after I became engaged, a married friend of mine came over with a basket full of kitchen essentials, and proclaimed these AirBake Cookie Sheets a housewife must-have. At first I was a little skeptical, wondering "how much better could they really be than the regular old cookie sheets"?

I soon found out that she was exactly right - these do a great job of cooking evenly without burning the bottoms of your cookies. The double bottom makes the AirBake sheets do a much better job than my other cookie sheets. I can bake the exact same cookies on the same rack, for the same amount of time with dramatically different results. The conventional cookie pan leaves the bottoms of the cookies dark brown and hardened, while the bottoms of the cookies on the AirBake sheets are light brown and still soft.

My one complained about these cookie sheets is that the size that I have are so generously sized that they don't fit in the dishwasher.

I wasn't all that impressed

By 

from Southfield, MI

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

I thought this Air Bake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheet was going to be the answer to my kitchen prayers. I was kind of expecting some kind of magic cookie sheet I guess. What I got was an overpriced cookie sheet that I really like less than my plain old regular cookie sheet that doesn't claim to be insulated or non-stick or cook with air.
I have a friend who loves her Air-bake cookie sheets and I was thinking that since she knows more about baking than I do, that I would follow her lead and give this a try. Now I'm kind of wishing that I had just purchased a more inexpensive cookie sheet or maybe just scrapped the whole idea of baking from scratch and gone to a nice bakery for my cookies.

Ease of Cleaning
For a non-stick surface, I didn't find this cookie sheet to be all that easy to clean. I expect non-stick to work like my better pots and pans and really not have food stick to it. I don't feel like I got that quality here.

Great concept, poor execution.

By 

from USA

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

This is made of aluminium and has bonded layers of aluminum for even baking. The ideal is that this will not burn or rust. The problem is that it can be warped and dent very easily and because of this, the imperfections can alter the yield of cookies that you have.

When it was brand new, I had uniform brown cookies that baked evenly. It was non stick and very easy to clean. However overtime, the shape became warped and the cookie quality decreased.

The bottoms of the cookies did not burn initially, but after a while some of them burned over time. It's very fragile so when cleaning be careful. You absolutely cannot throw these in the sink and put other dishes on top of them, because damage will occur. You need to be gentle with this and then you can preserve your investment.

Durability
Not durable because of the natural of the aluminum material used. Must be extra gentle and product may be damaged from shipping.

Great for baking, not so much for other applications

By 

from Loveland, OH

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

I received this cookie sheet as a wedding present six years ago. I have been using the cookie sheet regularly during that time and would say that the cookie sheet is very durable and is still in good shape six years later. We have both hand washed the cookie sheet and run it through the dishwasher without any problems. The surface of the cookie sheet has remained unscratched and not dented even after numerous uses. I like to use the cookie sheet for baking because it heats evenly and gives a good result especially when baking cookies. My biggest complaint with the pan is that it is not very good for cooking anything else because there is no lip on the sides. My husband used the cookie sheet to bake chicken and the juices ran right off the edge of the pan to the bottom of the oven. A rim or lip around the edge of the pan would have been nice to trap anything that might fall off the pan.

Don't get the hype.

By 

from Stanton, CA

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

I was so excited to get this cookie sheet. I love improving upon my cookies and everything else I thought I could bake on here. However, the first time I tried it, it didn't work up to my expectations. Sure, it worked just as well as my other cookie sheets, but I thought that there would be less stick with this one, and that just wasn't the case. I'll still use this cookie sheet occasionally if I am baking a huge batch of cookies and I need to utilize all of my sheets. Nothing special to me though.

Performance
I have family members who swear by this pan, but it's performance wasn't any better than my other cookie sheets.

Ease of Cleaning
I've tried scrubbing these things, but there is definitely evidence of cookies past on my pans.

Durability
Seems like I will be able to use it a while.

Design
It's a good concept, but it never really worked the way I thought it would.

Doesn't Stick
The first batch of cookies I cooked on this, all of the cookies stuck somewhat.

My mother swore by AirBake cookie sheets, I am not 100% sold

By 

from Saddle Brook, NJ

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

My mother once recieved an AirBake pizza pan as a gift, and loved it so much she immediately ran out to get the cookie sheets. She said that the pizza pan made the crust lighter and doughy-er than any other pan she had tried, and the cookie sheets promoted a more even baking than she had ever imagined. My mother is an excellent baker, so with that glowing review, I knew I had to get one of these cookie sheets for myself.

All I can say is that maybe sometimes Mother doesn't know best. I do think that these cookie sheets baked somewhat more evenly that my old cookie sheet, and the cookies definitely seemed less prone to burning. These are all big pluses, but there are some big negatives too.

Firstly, I recieved these as a gift, and scratched it taking it out of the box. I scratched it again when removing cookies from it, even though I was using a plastic spatula. I think that maybe one cookie sheet scratched against another, and that is what caused the scratch. With 2 scratches on their first day, I don't feel confident that these sheets will last the test of time.

Second, these sheets are kind of a pain to clean. You can't put them in the dishwasher, which is ok by me, since I don't have one. You also can't immerse them in a washbasin, which means they take up a lot of counter space while waiting to be cleaned. Combine that with the scratching issue, and they take up even more space, since I am afraid to stack them on top of each other, or stack things on them. The scratching makes me nervous even to leave them in the dishrack to dry, so I wind up drying them by hand. I have them stored in with the pots and pans, currently, and I am concerned that when I need them again, they will be even further scratched.

BEST COOKIE SHEET EVER!!!!

By 

from Wellsville, PA

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

Whatever you do, don't be afraid of the price tag on these baking sheets.  You don't need to grease the sheet like some recipes call for.  I have yet to burn a batch of cookies and they slid right off!  You will not be disappointed in these sheets.  Easy to clean, just wipe with a wet cloth and put away!

Perfect cookies every time

By 

from Omaha, NE

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

My mom gave me one of these cookie sheets several years ago and I had to buy another one. I load one while the other is in the oven.   I just won't use any other kind.  Even if you leave the cookies in a little too long they don't burn.  They come out perfect every time.  You shouldn't put these baking sheets in the dishwasher but you don't need to, they practically wipe clean.  So I guess there really isn't a "con" to add to this product.  If you try it once, you'll never go back to the old fashioned kind.  And they don't rust or darken either.  All of the Air bake products are worth buying...the cake pans too.

Not quite sure

By 

from West Des Moines, IA

Comments about AirBake Non-Stick Insulated Cookie Sheets:

I am on the fence regarding the air bake cookie sheet. Before purchasing one, my mom swore up and down that this was the best cookie sheet. She has also used one for many years. For me however, I'm not quite so sure. To start off, I have a hard time with baking cookies. It seems that no matter what the instructions say, my cookies get burnt. The Airbake cookies sheet does not help this problem, because it often seems like the cookies need to be baked an additional time rather than what is on the package when I use this sheet (I also think it states that on the packaging). Therefore, between my oven time and cookie sheet time, I can never quite figure out when my cookies are done. Second, I'm not a fan of anything that needs to be hand washed. This cookie sheet can be emursed in water, so that requires that I hand wash it after each use instead of putting it in the dishwasher. And last, my cookie sheets has lots of scratches on it. Not sure what they are from as I have never used anything sharp on it.
