    This is a very good quality sheet pan. I have purchased many sheet pans of many brands on here and this is one of my favorites. It bakes nice and evenly.
    You can never have too many 1/2 sheet pans. These are sturdy, they hold up over the course of a year easily with no scratches dents and they clean easily
    The Vollrath 5303 is a classic all-around quality workhorse of a sheet pan at a outstanding price on Webstaurant store. Vollrath is a quality trustworthy manufacturer and this sheet pan is proof. Its a sturdy but light aluminum sheet pan of a thicker than average 18 gauge. Consumer brands like Nordicware, whose sheet pans are quite popular, make their sheet pans out of 20 or 22 gauge aluminum I believe, since I last emailed and asked their company. This is a workhorse of a pan, no non-stick glazes or anything. Natural aluminum with a nice buffed smooth finish. No warping so far and no complaints. Bakes evenly.
    I love this pan it is the perfect size to fit a lot of our items on one pan, which makes it easier to use less pans.
    My most useful kitchen tool and I use them all the time! I roast vegetables, make "fried" chicken, bake cookies, and so much more. The value is unbeatable. The quality is much better than what I can get from typical stores. And they last forever. Yes, it scratches over time, but those don't degrade the performance in any way.
    These pans are very strong and can hold up to being thrown around a kitchen. They are very easy to clean and I know I can expect years of use out of these, especially if I use parchment to reduce the cleaning frequency. I would recommend.
    I’ve purchased retail sheet pans in the past and struggled to find ones that were the right weight, price and wouldn’t warp. This sheet meets all of my expectations. It’s a versatile size that can be used to bake anything. The weight is great and I expect it to wear well. The price is unbeatable compared to retail.
    Have had no problems with these so far. They are heavy and hold up well, especially with a silicone baking mat on top. Easy to clean too.
    i love these pans. i have 3 and they perform beautifully. I am a home cook - and they are very usefully for all my needs. They are strong and sturdy. I will purchase this product again and recommend it,
    This is a great pan for baking my sugar cookies. My only regret is that I didn't order a larger size. But if fits a dozen 3"-4" sugar cookies with no problem. Baking does take a bit longer because the pan is so shiny. But the price is great and the quality is amazing.
    I ordered several of these pans, and while there is a bit of fluctuation in quality, they all meet my needs and are working well. Plus it is really hard to complain about the quality when they are only a few dollars a piece.
    My favorite sheet pan ever! Heavy duty and easy to clean. I have gotten rid of all of my other pans. Perfect sheet pan size.
    These are the best sheet pans. They heat more evenly than the cheaper ones that I have purchased. They create even browning and are easy to clean. Plus they have lids that are amazing. With the lids on, you can stack the pans horizontally and vertically.
    these are nice and heavy duty. will definitely buy these again over the choice brand pans. these seem to be a bit more heavy duty.
    Awesome pans for the price. We use these all the time and they are durable and functional. We would certainly buy these again!! Love then.
    I love to use these pans for baking cookies, scones,and cinnamon buns. I love that they are easy to clean. I also use them to display cupcakes
    Love these sheet pans! great value! They have survived all the abuse i have put them through, are sturdy, easy to clean, I have run these through the dishwasher countless times and they always come out looking brand new.
    I have wanted these for a few years now. The pans are very accommodating in terms of their size. I bake on them as well as cook bacon in the oven using them. I like that 2 pies will fit on one sheet pan. I have made a full sheet of brownies with them, too using 2 boxes of mix. Very convenient for baking and cooking as well as serving food for large parties (I plan to use at an upcoming graduation party).
    Excellent sheet pans! Vollrath is a great company making great products. These pans clean up wonderfully and always look new. Would not buy anything else.
    Great high quality sheet pans! I highly recommend these! I have used Vollraths pots and pans, and even their sheet pans are great! sturdy and very easy to clean!
    Great pans, very consistent heating throughout the whole pan. Cooks cookies evenly without any problem spots of over or under cooking. They hold up very well to hundreds of washings
    Thes pans are very high quality pans. They do not warp and can handle a good amount of weight. They stack perfectly in one another so you can by several without taking up a ton of room.
    The Vollrath brand is in my opinion One of the best as far as durability and even cooking This size is great if you want to make the box mix of 13 x 9 brownies thinner and take a little less time to cook. These are also great to use in a cooler to put your chicken, steaks, or pork chops on before transporting them to a grill. They can take the weight just fine.
    This is a fine half sheet pan, but it is very similar to the cheapest half sheet pan sold on this site. Maybe a professional chef could tell the difference, but I could not. I believe it will last well and do the job it's intended for.
    I'd say this feels like a medium weight pan as compared with other half size pans that I have. But just because it is lighter doesn't mean it is of less quality. It still works good after 2.5 years of use.
    Very great value for its price. These are great for light baking such as cookies, brownies, dinner rolls, etc. They hold up well to many uses and washes.
    I always know that I am going to be satisfied with a vollrath product. These 1/2 sheet pans are very heavy duty and sturdy. Throw a silpat on there and you'll get a lot of service out of these.
    This Vollrath Aluminum Bun is really made of top quality material. Nothing fancy just a good sturdy piece to add to you kitchen arsenal. Good price too!
    Nice half sheet pan. Aluminum feels sturdy, and construction quality is great. The wire rim is nice and stops the pan from warping under high heat.
    I ordered two of these pans. Both arrived with different discolorations. One was an easily rubbed off black residue that was like black dry erase marker and heavy layers of pencil combined. The other pan had a large discolored smear across the food surface. I could not remove the stain when I rubbed or washed it. It looks similar to a water stain. I washed it thoroughly and generally plan to line my pan before I use it, so it's probably only an asthetic issue. Speaking of lining... Standard foil is slightly too narrow to keep the pan clean. I lined the pan with foil and baked bacon and diced potatoes on a half sheet draining grate (the Half-size footed draining grate for bun/sheet pan available on this site). The bacon fat went everywhere. Don't make my mistake - use wide foil!
    13 x 18 aluminum pan is nice and thick. It did warn a bit when used in even at 425 to roast veggies. Still pretty good for the price.
    Again, another incredible value from this site! I ordered several and use them weekly for my small business and at home. They perform just as well as my expensive pans that are five times as expensive. I use them with this site's baking mats and with my expensive Silpats and they perform exactly the same. Great purchase!
    These sheet pans are absolute tanks. They take everything I throw at them and clean up like they are brand new. Don't hesitate to buy these, they will last for a very long time. They are high quality and affordable!
    The Vollrath Heavy Duty Half Size sheet pans were a great buy at Webstaurant. Mine have not warped from high temperature roasting, and they also still look as good as new after several months of use. I almost always use them with parchment paper. Also great for food prep, and for use at the grill outside.
    My cookies and bread are very successful on this baking sheet. Perfect browning and no more burns! Thanks! But I have received mine with a little dent in the middle, it might be due to shipping but overall baking experience is great.
    One of my pans I purchased was pretty beat up due to poor packaging for shipping. Should not interfere with usage since I will be using liners.
    Thank you for your review, Yvonne! We are sorry to hear that the item you purchased had shipping damages. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you soon to credit you for the damages.
    Love this sheet pan, I use them for everything in the kitchen. The ones from the department stores are flimsy and scratch easily, these sheet pans are heavy and easy to clean, will not stain and will last for a long time. For the price I'll be getting some more very soon.
    Great sheet pan that cooks food evenly , and also is very easy to clean. I have used this pan for several high temperature cooking in the oven as well as lower temperature in the oven,
    I've used this sheet pan several times now for baking. It works great and is easy to care for. The price is great too. Very happy with this purchase.
    Vollrath makes great sheet pans! They are heavy duty and, if they do warp, they return to their flat shape afterwards! They are truly great sheet pans and I would not buy from any other company!
    These pans are sturdy, standard fair and work great for general cooking. I either grease them or line them with parchment fist. I haven't had and trouble with foods sticking.
    Never again will we have to worry about not having enough half sheet pans. They are cost effective and made of heavy duty metal so they won't bend like the cheaper sheet pans.
    You can never have enough of these pans. I use them for all kinds of things including cookies, deep fryer drainage, dehydrating herbs, and flash freezing vegetables before bagging. The quality is great. I recommend hand washing unless you don't mind a grayish discoloration from the dishwasher.
    Great half size sheet pan -- perfect for a million uses. You can easily use a dozen of these in a day, and at this price you can afford to have them on hand. Good quality.
    Vollrath makes a good product, this aluminum sheet pan was no exception. This product cooked evenly and was constructed well. I would recommend this product.
    This is a great all purpose pan. I use them for just about everything and anything I do in the oven - cookies, pastries, meats (with a rack), roasting veg..and on and on. Friends have even permanently "borrowed" this pan - it's that useful. Highly recommended pan.
