In a home oven, you can place four pans on the two top shelves.

That's what I do. The first 2 pans on the middle rack and the other two above them, I do switch pans 2-3 before they're done. Each oven is different so I suggest you experiment before you do your actual order.

We all forgot to mention to make sure there is air flow, at least an inch, between the pans and the sides of the oven. Also, even in convection, if you pack it this tight, the rotation mentioned by cupcations is still necessary because of less air flow.

So if you want to do this, look for pans without the big handle area. They take up that space you need.

do you bake them at a lower temp? I usually do mine at 350. also do they take longer to bake? do you switch them out half way through or more often? thanks

Bake at same temp, time may increase but not by much. If your oven has major hot spots then switch racks and rotate top to bottom, front to back (turn trays around). Experiment to find the best way to utilize your oven.
