Baking Pans are a staple in both commercial and residential kitchens, and like most anything, they will age more gracefully if they’re properly cared for throughout their life. Here are a few key things you should keep in mind when caring for your baking pans:

1. Seasoning:

To get the best performance and life from your new bake pan, be sure to season it before use, and as needed over time. Simply apply a spray or lubricant to the surface and stick it in the oven (without product in it) for 10 minutes at roughly 350°F.

2. Storage:  

Baking Pans should always be stored in warm, dry areas and away from places with high humidity, like the dishroom. Baking pans should never be stored in cool/cold places since condensation can form on the pan. They should be placed upside down in their designated storage place for the best airflow and we often recommend warming them in the oven just before storage to make sure they are completely dry and free of moisture.

3. De-panning:

After baking, your finished product should be depanned as soon as possible. This is because steam given off from the pan during the cooling process can penetrate the glaze on the pan and cause “glaze lifting” or corrosion over time. Many people think to keep the baked product in the pan long enough to cool it is the correct thing to do, when in actuality it can damage the pan over time.

4. Cleaning:

Baking Pans are relatively sensitive and should be cleaned with a soft cloth or a mild soap and water solution. Remember that pans shouldn’t be exposed to water, humidity, condensation or cold temperatures if possible. Avoid soaking the pan in water, using any harsh chemical cleaners, in addition to rough scouring pads which can scratch the glaze on your pan. Should washing in water be necessary, re-season the pan with a lubricant afterwards and stick it in the oven at 350°F for 10 minutes to ensure the seasoning has sealed.
