This is the real stuff - heavy duty, quality construction. I have used them with and without a silpat for baking cookies, finishing satueed fish fillets, oven roasting vegetables and many other purposes.
They are easy to clean and substantial. There do not seem to be any hot spots or other problems.
The only complaint I have, and I make it with reservations, is that they ARE heavy. Do not try to lift a loaded sheet out of the oven with one hand. The weight is also a good thing (see "substantial" above) but it easy to forget just how heavy it is going to be when you reach for that hot pad!
What I like best about these pans is that they are the right size for a regular (half-sheet) Silpat or Exopat silicone baking mat. Lots of "half sheet" pans made for the home cook are actually a bit too small at the bottom for the mats to lay flat.
The cooling rack is a nice bonus. It would make a little more sense if there were two racks, since there are two pans. After all, if you remove two pans of cookies, they probably aren't going to fit on one rack!
I bought the set on sale for $20, and at that price it's one of the best deals I've seen on Amazon. But even at $30, it's a good deal--it would be hard to do better.
Though I normally follow the recommendations of America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Illustrated for equipment, I purchased this item before I saw the November/December CI article on sheet pans. In the article, they give the Chicago Metallic pan a "recommended with reservations rating", stating that it had warped slightly under high heat. They recommend the Lincoln Foodservice half size heavy duty sheet pan instead(note that this $15.40 pan does not include a wire rack, which you would need to purchase separately).
Notwithstanding their rating, I still back this item whole-heartedly and personally have no inclination to upgrade to their recommendation. I have found that many of my recipes do in fact require me to have a second sheet pan on hand. Given the great price on this set, and my experience that they are very heavy duty and have not in any way shown they will ever warp, I can easily back a five star rating on this product. I bought a second set for my girlfriend, who also loves them.
I use them several times a week For roasting veggies (at 350 to 425 degress) and broiling (at 500 degrees). Unlike other brands that I've tried, I have absolutely no problem with warping at high temps.
Clean up is a breeze too. I get all the sticky stuff off with a scotchbrite and then into the dishwasher. Comes out perfect every time.
I've also used them for cookies. I adjusted my cooking time downward and used parchment. The results were outstanding.
I gave them 4, rather than five, stars because one of the pans arrived dented. At this price, I think that's not acceptable. Since other reviewers have mentioned the same thing, this is clearly a recurring problem. I don't know if the problem is with Amazon, the manufacturer, or some combination of the two. But it's a problem.
I will buy this brand again.
