Until I started working on the ATK Reviews Team, I thought all baking sheets were the same. Boy, was I wrong.
It turns out you don’t need to subject yourself to warped pans and unevenly browned food.

They Make the Best Sheet-Pan Dinners
The worst part of making dinner is doing the dishes. Everyone can agree on that, right? Why not make it easier on yourself and make a one-pan meal?
With dinners like Sheet-Pan Lemon-Herb Cod Fillets with Crispy Garlic Potatoes; Sheet-Pan Plant-Based Italian Sausage with Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes, and Polenta; and Sheet-Pan Herbed Salmon Cakes with Asparagus and Lemon-Herb Sauce, all of the cooking takes place on (you guessed it!) the sheet pan, so you don’t have to worry about washing multiple pots and pans once dinner is finished.
The Quarter-Sheet Pan Size Is Perfect for Any Kitchen Task
The smaller size of these pans makes them ideal for small tasks such as baking a few cookies or scones, draining fried shallots, making a small batch of granola, or letting meat rest. We also like using them to hold utensils as we cook or to ferry ingredients around the kitchen or out to the grill. The quarter-sheet pan also comfortably fits in our winning toaster oven.
