    pssst.. not to dis CoolTools, but has “bun pans” for less. I am not a shill for Acemart, but have bought many there for my own use and for shower gifts.

    I don’t know about any online sources, but the restaurant supply I go to in San Jose has half-sheet pans for $7.90.

    Honestly, don’t be afraid to go into a restaurant supply store. They are like magical cooking wonderlands. Just leave your credit cards at home.

    The key to buying pro kitchen grade sheets is to buy metal ones, not the aluminum versions Wilton puts out. They’re great for cooking foods like veg and meats on, but not baking like cookies. Cookies require metal pans that will distribute the heat evenly. Aluminum don’t conduct heat the same way, or evenly. Very frustrating. I didn’t relalise and fought with my gorgeous aluminum pans for 3 Christmases, blaming my old renter apartment oven for the failures. It was the pans I bought. How annoying and embarrassing for someone like me who used to work in a huge kitchen.

    Echoing Maria’s comments about not being afraid to check out restaurant supply stores. The East Bay Restaurant Supply store is open to the public (you can stop there on your road trip!), and provides a zero-pressure shopping experience. We go there for dishes, trays, etc. for school. My husband got his beer-brewing pot there. As an added bonus, the EBRS has a real (stuffed) polar bear on display!

    Thanks so much for the tip in the metal instead of aluminum pans. There are some kitchen supply stores near me but I never have cash when I’m passing them :)

    Sam’s Club sells two-packs of real restaurant-grade half sheet pans. Probably not as cheap as restaurant supply stores, but perhaps easier to find.

    Loved the egg article. I always get my eggs from one of two local farmers here :)
