About Baking Trays
Now that you have severally heard about baking trays, what are they all about? How are they used? What are some of their benefits?

Just like most products used for baking, these trays are made of a combination of materials but the dominant ne is either stainless steel or aluminium
The most basic form of a baking tray is just a sheet of metal, literally. However, it is possible to have additional features such as lips on the edges that prevent the item being baked from sliding off. Other modifications include optional handles and air insulations for protecting delicate foods. Baking trays have no specific size but can bake anything between 13 x 9 and 26 x 18. Large trays are used by commercial bakeries while the small ones can e used for regular home applications. The standard sizes are also aligned with the standard sizes of other kitchen equipment such as cooling racks, shelvings and ovens.
For delicate and sticky pastries, some bakers prefer to use linings as opposed to baking directly on the baking trays. It is however better not to use linings since most wrappers and linings end up having some chemicals that get into the cakes. It has also been scientifically proven that it takes less time to bake without a lining than with one. You can employ natural regulation options such as simmering under low heat or using a little oil to prevent pastries from sticking. Baking trays are coated with glaze that prevents most food substances from sticking to their surface.
