Use Baking Pans (Metal)

  • For nicely browned baked goods.
  • For broiling. Do not use glass dishes or casseroles when broiling because the high temperatures may cause the glass to shatter. Therefore, when broiling, use only metal pans or bakeware suitable for broiling.

Use Baking Dishes (Glass or Ceramic)

  • For dishes made with eggs or with acidic ingredients such as tomatoes and lemon. Baking pans made of aluminum, iron, and tin can react with these foods and cause the foods to discolor.
