Easy to Use

Using this extender couldn't be any easier! Simply line your pan with parchment paper, spray the paper and sides of the extender with release spray, and pour in your batter about 3/4 of the way to the top. That's it; you're ready to bake!

Guaranteed Consistency

It also helps provide straight sides and edges on baked goods so that every piece has the appearance of a center cut.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

How should I clean / maintain this MFG pan extender?
This pan extender can be cleaned in a low or high temperature dish washer, but never soak it for a prolonged period of time. If you prefer to scrape the pan extender rather than washing after each use, it is recommended that you use a plastic scraper. When using the pan extender, a release spray is needed to prevent sticking and will produce a better final product. Additionally, if you are using a pan extender with cells, it yields the best results when used in a convection oven.

When cooking with a pan extender, first place a piece of parchment paper on your sheet pan. Then set the pan extender on top of it. Coat the bottom of the pan and the sides of the extender with a release spray. Pour the batter to 3/4 capacity, and then place the pan in the oven to bake. Bake the batter according to your recipe directions and then remove it when ready. Allow the pan to cool off before gently lifting the extender. The sides of your cake should be straight and smooth, which makes trimming obsolete! Plus, using a pan extender will promote uniform height, color, and texture, while minimizing over-baking!

The material matters in food processing, handling, and storage. Composites are lighter than metal, stronger than thermo-plastics, tougher than wood, and highly resistant to chemical cleaners. Our composite food service containers don't warp or slide like plastic. They don't rust or bend like metal. At MFG Tray we like to encourage our customers to think inside the box and consider how exceptionally durable composite products are to their food service application. The challenges within the food service industry are unique. Kitchen temperatures, freezing cold, constant use, and never-ending sanitation are tough on handling products. MFG Tray composite products deliver proven performance in many food service applications. We offer an array of products specifically designed for food storage, preparation, and merchandising, including dough boxes, bagel boards, pan extenders, food storage and prep bins, non-slip serving trays, and cafeteria and display trays. MFG Trays' food service products come in several colors and offer additional features, including lids and dolly carts. Composite trays and containers are safe for food service. The smooth, non-porous surface resists odors, stains, and mildew. They're not harmed by detergents, and may cleaned in a conventional dishwasher, or steam cleaned. They can also handle standard baking temperatures, or be frozen, or refrigerated. Thanks to their composite design, MFG food service products bring strength, along with structurally strong stacking. One of the biggest challenges in the food lines to maintain a level of cleanable design, that something we always look at from an engineering standpoint, not only the design, but also the materials. A lot of these come into contact with food, or in a food zone area, and so we have to supply food-safe materials, ingredients in our formulations and likewise a cleanable design so that as they run them through their process, they can maintain a cleanable and sanitation through the food service industry. With the multi-directional fibers that are in our parts, it increases the tensile strength of the part, makes it a little more rigid than a thermo-plastic part would be. Also, it increases thermo-stability, so we don't have them all over the place dimensionally. Our materials are proven to withstand so much more than other materials that are out there. I have even parts at home -- my grandmother worked here, my mother worked here -- I have parts at home probably from the early 70s that are just as strong today as they were then. The strength of our materials and the components in them are unbeatable. The appearance is very critical. We do have specific jobs that we do dimensions. We have a bagel board where we check the edge crown, and we use our FaroArm to do that. We have a hot/cold tray that we also have to check the center crown on, because it fits in racking systems, and if they are out of those tolerances, they won't fit for the customers. We want our customers to be confident that the product they are putting their own product on is something they can be proud of, that they know their product is going to look good on our product. The molded fiberglass tray has seen a lot of evolution over the years. Many people think that serving trays are serving trays, but they're really not. Over the years we've come up with different ways particularly like our non-skid tray, of revolutionizing that product line within the food service market, to give the customer base something base, that was specifically given to use by customers we had who weren't happy with what they were receiving, so we were able to provide them with something different, something that lasts longer, something that's more durable, dishwasher-safe, better than what the competition could provide. In terms of other products, we always try to stay ahead of the curve. We're always looking for what's changing in the food service market and what we need to do to stay ahead of that.

    great Pan cakes brownies Cake extender half edges extenders perfectly
    This half size fiberglass pan extender is perfect for baking exact half sheet of cake. You can make tiramisu cake or mold a large moose.
    This is OK not bad for a fiberglass handle extender I prefer the aluminum ones they're a little better constructed not has floppy feeling Yup
    These are a life saver to have around in any kitchen or bakery! they fit a half pan perfectly and are very easy to clean.
    You must need a liner for this because the corners have gaps in them and everything just leaks out and over flows. I tried turning it upside down but that didnt work either.
    We appreciate your review, Leslea! A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you shortly.
    We normally use a stainless steel version of these but they got discontinued so we opted for this and while they do not feel as sturdy (the walls are somewhat bendable), they serve its purpose of just being a mold for our mousse cakes. No issues so far! Also like that the bottom corners have an open space so it's easy to lift up and unmold.
    We were very excited to try these out, and initially we thought they'd work well. But we noticed they leave a horrible taste where ever they contact the food. They also produced an unpleasant smell. We washed and baked with these several times thinking they would "cure" or loose the bad smell / flavor with use, but they didn't seem to improve. After several attempts, we gave up on them. They now sit on a shelf, unused. I'd definitely go with metal ones next time.
    Thank you for your review, Ruth! We are sorry to hear that the pan extenders you received were defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon to arrange a return.
    This pan extender has become a staple that I can't remember living without anymore. Keeps the brownies from burning and the edges are almost as soft as the center.
    works great for half sheet cakes ..cooks better than some pans and you can clean in the corners since it comes apart ..great if you have bake a cake for some one with allergies because of the ease of cleaning
    The pan extender does its job and yields very nicely shaped cakes and brownies. However, I feel like the extender left an "off" taste on the parts of the food that it actually touched.
    We use these for super gooey brownies and bars. They are amazing. Perfect bake every time. They also transfer well from freezer to oven, we couldn't live without them.
    These work well for making tall sheet cakes! Easy to release when you pair this item with parchment paper and pan release spray! Great bakery item!!
    Pan extenders are a MUST HAVE for serious bakers. The half-size extenders fit perfectly in half-size sheet pans. Use parchment in the bottom, spray the sides with a little cooking spray and you get perfectly baked trays of brownies, pan cookies, and bar cookies every time. They are great for preventing uneven cooking and overdone edges. I even use the extenders when I pour fudge for setting. You get nice "factory" edges when you're ready to cut! Highly recommended for serious bakers.
    A great price like we've come to expect from Webstaurant Store. A little flimsy but we can definitely work with it. A shame the girl we hired to use them showed up to work drunk and is thus no longer with us.
    I love this tool I use it at work and home it really controls the drips and cakes and brownies come out even I recommend this item.
    We had never tried these before. Took a chance on 6 and ordered another 6 once we tried them. They assist in even baking and very appealing sides. No more of that descending edge look. We have prepared & cooked Corn Bread, Butter Cake, Chocolate Cake and brownies in them. They work great and are well made.
    Works as well as I expected. Great for baking as it produced really nice "layers" that released easily. The extender was also very easy to clean. I was also using it as a form for my 2 layer mousse cake and for that use it would have really been better if it was 2.5 inches high or higher.
