Baking Sheet Sizes
There are five industry-standard baking sheet sizes.
- Full-Size = 18” x 26”
- 2/3 Size = 16” x 22”
- 1/2 Size = 13” x 18”
- 1/4 Size = 9 1/2” x 13”
- 1/8 Size = 6 1/2" x 9 1/2”
A baking sheet's size doesn't affect its capability. You can use each baking sheet size for baking, roasting, chilling, and decorating. However, the different quantities each size yields and the pan's compatibility with other kitchen appliances determines their helpfulness for different kitchen settings and food preparation tasks.
What Are Industry Standard Baking Sheet Sizes?
The foodservice industry has set standard baking sheet dimensions so its professionals can easily identify baking sheets. Most manufacturers label their baking sheets according to the industry’s standard-sizing, but each manufacturer’s baking sheet will vary slightly from the next.
It's not uncommon for two products labeled '12” baking sheet' from different manufacturers to have slightly different dimensions. You should check a baking sheet’s product description to find its exact dimensions.

What Is a Baking Sheet?
A baking sheet, also called a sheet pan, is a flat, rectangular metal sheet made for oven use. Baking sheets are perfect for items that stand on their own or hold their own shape. Investing in quality baking sheets is not only essential for starting a bakery, but for all foodservice establishments. Baking sheets are versatile tools and help you prepare both sweet and savory dishes.
Baking Sheet vs Cookie Sheet
The difference between a baking sheet and a cookie sheet is baking sheets/sheet pans have raised edges on all four sides and cookie sheets do not. Most cookie sheets have a handling lip on one side, making it easy for bakers to slide their baked goods onto a cooling rack. While cookie sheets help bakers easily transfer cookies and other baked goods to cooling racks, you can use a baking sheet to make cookies if you don't have a cookie sheet on hand.

- Sheet Pans
- Bread/Loaf Pans
