I'm interested in finding out the brand of the one that you have that you like.
My advice to you is to sell it at a garage sale, this is absolutely the worse cookie sheet I own. It was a huge disappointment to me. In fact I prefer the cheaper bent out of shape old scratched up ones and get better results from them than I do with this Wearever one. I have the same one, biggest waste of money I have ever made. Even the lightweight Wilton ones work better.
I have been making cookies since I was about 9, I am 50 now, I can get good results with just about anything but I really don't like this cookie sheet at all. Water gets into the back of it, so you have to be careful when you wash it. It has a nice looking surface, but it doesn't heat up well or evenly and cookies take forever on it and still don't brown well. Hhmn, can you tell I don't like it? And it is way over-priced.
My absolute favourite cookie sheet of all times, hubby bought me this Christmas and I would highly recommend it for the absolute best most evenly cooked cookie results.
Cuisinart Classic Collection Non-Stick Bakeware
It is heavy gauge Steel. Mine is 17"X13" and it is an Open Sided Cookie Sheet. AMB-17CSC is the I.D. number. He got it at a specialty store that caters to commercial restaurants. I want to get 3 more of these because you should always make sure your cookie sheet is cool before placing cookie dough on it and I like to have 4 pans ready to go in as I make huge batches of cookies. It was quite expensive here in Canada, I think in the neighbourhood of about $27 CDN if I remember correctly.
Heehee, I don't often feel this strongly about something, but it is right up there with my Kitchen Aid mixer in terms of best products I have ever owned.
