These pans are the smaller version of the Half Sheet Rimmed Baking Sheet Pans I keep in the farmhouse kitchen. They're half the size of the larger pans, but I can easily make the case that they are twice as versatile.
While the larger pans can bake more cookies per sheet, these smaller pans are perfect for baking four cookies or warming up a toasted sandwich, a split and toasted muffin, or something smaller that doesn't require a full size pan.
I use these 9 x 13 Quarter Sheet Pans to bake our Frosted Sugar Cookies. They're the perfect size for a batch. When I am testing a recipe, I often put these smaller pans to use so that I can bake off one or two so that I can decide if the recipe needs a bit of adjustment before baking all of it.
I've been known to use these pans as serving trays on burger night. Lined with a piece of parchment or waxed paper, we serve burgers with fries and onion rings and carry them to the table or the backyard on a crisp summer night.
This size pan fits well in smaller ovens or toaster ovens. I often choose to bake with our toaster oven on a particularly warm day to help keep the kitchen cool. When I do, these pans are the ones I reach for.
When I am freezing our garden's harvest of cherry tomatoes and basil, these pans are very useful. They provide a sturdy surface to support the ice cube trays I use to freeze basil and other tender herbs. They're also a great tray for freezing cherry tomatoes as their rim prevents them from rolling off the edge. They fit easily in the freezer and can be lined with freezer paper to ensure that the frozen tomatoes come off cleanly.
These pans are durable, easy to clean, and roomy. They're easy to line with silicone style Silpat liners or sheets of parchment paper. These pans distribute heat evenly don't mind high heat.
I seem to add more of these pans to the kitchen every few months and I continue to be surprised by how often I use them. I am sure that you will find them to be just as useful as I do.
