    My cookie sheets have been given a big workout over the years! Cookies with the kids and pizza for the family are the two main uses. We love spending time making delicious things in the kitchen together.

  2. Hanne

    What I use most often is my stand mixer – closely followed with my chocolate melter, of all things. I scoffed at my husband when he bought it (he has a tendency to buy a lot of useless electronics), but as it has turned out, it is used several times every week!

  3. CJ

    Besides measuring cups/spoons I would guess that the most used bakeware in my kitchen is a 13 x 9″ pan (or two). I much prefer baking over cooking but with both of my college aged kids away all summer there hasn’t been much baking going on. πŸ™

  4. What I use the most is definitely my jelly roll pan…although I have not yet made a jelly roll. I’ll have to put that on the list of things to try soon. Anyway, the pan is so versatile, I use it all the time.

  5. I use my jelly rolls the most, but one of them is total rubbish – warps when it gets too hot, and rusts every time you wash it, so this new one would be great! (As would the rest of the items.)

  6. Kate

    Definitely my cookie sheet, which I use for practically everything that goes in the oven. I clearly need to branch out with what I make.

  7. Sandy

    Definitely my rimmed cookie sheet–we use it for so many things besides cookies: transporting things from the grill to the kitchen, making fudge, etc.

  8. Shreela

    Round pizza pan that fits in the toaster oven. I use it for anything that fits on it, including pizzas LOL

    I love that mini-cheesecake tin!

  9. Stacy

    Definitely a baking sheet/bar pan I have. Use it several times a day and usually need 2 (which I don’t have right now) with our large family.


  10. Marianne

    Would have to be my cookie sheets, second my 13 x 9 pan, use it for most everything in the oven.

  11. Stephanie

    I use measuring spoons/cups almost everyday! The jellyroll pan next in line… esp during the summer roasting all the fresh veggies. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Julie Scott

    my most used piece of bakeware is my cookie sheet – my family made cookie cutters for every holiday, and now i made my husband help me do the same! πŸ™‚

  13. I have a variety of small metal pans (a loaf pan, a mini-cupcake pan, a normal cupcake pan, an 8×8 pan) that I use for various baking, and some cheapie cookie sheets. I need to buy some sil-pat liners…but they’re like $18 a piece!

    I love that muffin top pan, I want one. If I don’t win it, I’ll have to buy it with the discount code. πŸ™‚

    Thanks Jenny & Chicago Metallic!

  14. Kelly Jo

    I definitely use my 9″ cake pan the most. I’m on the hunt for the perfect white cake from scratch recipe (light AND fluffy) and those two pans have been in consistent rotation in my oven lately.

  15. Stephanie

    DEFINITELY my cookie sheets. They’re obviously very worn looking but I love that about them πŸ™‚

  16. Katie Rose

    My cookie sheets! They are out all the time and even in this heat where I haven’t turned the oven on in weeks…I still use them as trays to cart everything out to the grill.

  17. Sarah

    This is the best giveaway ever! I’d say my muffin tins get the best use in my kitchen. I have a slight cupcake obsession πŸ™‚

  18. Lately I have been using my $2 bread loaf pan that I picked up at the Dollar Store–surprisingly, it’s the best one I have!

  19. Tracy

    I definitely use my cookie sheet the most. Maybe because I have a cookie addiction that can’t be stopped… Did someone say cookies?

  20. Aari

    The stainless steel muffin tin I bake my son’s breakfast muffins in. Much healthier for him than non-stick.

  21. Sonnet

    My cookie sheets get the most wear & tear.. cooking everything from chicken breasts to peanut butter cookies. They’re in sorry shape but still functional!

  22. Sonnet

    … and I get your RSS feed via google reader every day you post! thanks for all of your hard work & for these fabulous giveaways!

  23. Catherine

    I definitely use my baking sheet the most – whether it’s making cookies, making thin bars, baking fruit desserts (the tray helps me get dishes out easier!) or making savory things such as roasting veggies or chicken. It’s my go-to! I just wish I could figure out a way to keep it looking prettier and not so brown. Happy Friday!

  24. Meagan

    I definitely use my cookie sheet the most! From cooking veggies to baking cookies it’s so versatile!

  25. Easy answer–the bakeware item I use most often in my kitchen is the cookie sheet!! I often get cookie cravings at random (sometimes inopportune) moments, and since cookies bake up in less than 10 minutes, most times…well, you get the idea. πŸ™‚

  26. Katie

    Measuring cups πŸ™‚ But besides that, I make muffins quite a bit. (When it’s a little cooler than it is right now!)

  27. I use my cookie scoops almost every day! Not just for cookies, but muffins, cupcakes, baby food making-never realized how handy they are!

  28. Jenny E.

    I use my cookie sheet and jelly roll pans the most. They are both so versatile for baking/cooking, and I use them both a few times every week. Love this giveaway! Thank you!!

  29. Kate A.

    I definitely use my cookie sheet the most. I not only make cookies on it, but I also use it all the time to roast veggies πŸ™‚

  30. emily w

    β€œWhat piece of bakeware do you use most often in your kitchen?”

    I use my Le Cruset 8 x 8 casserole dish for most everything – couldn’t live without it. please enter me in the Chicago Metallic bakeware give-away. thanks!

  31. Meredith

    Of course I use my measuring cups the most, but other than that, my 9 inch round baking pans are the ones I use for just about every cake I make!

  32. Kennedy

    I use my mini muffin pan the most… I make everything in it – mini brownies, cupcakes, muffins, etc., etc.!

  33. Mary

    Since it’s been in the 100’s since May in central Texas, I’ve used my pizza pan that fits in the toaster oven the most. Just the thought of using the full sized oven makes me start sweating…

  34. I definitely use my cookie sheets the most often, for cookies, scones, and biscuits. BUT, my cookie sheets have seen better days (they’re beginning to rust on the bottom), so that beautiful jelly roll pan is looking very attractive! πŸ™‚

  35. I think my cupcake pan is probably used the most. Besides the obvious use for cupcakes and muffins it makes the most perfect mini quiches. Love my cupcake pan!

  36. Helen Brown

    I never win anything :/ But, hey its worth a try right! First off I LOVE your recipes!!! Second, I would have to say that I would use the measuring cups the most πŸ™‚

  37. Sera Deo

    I definitely use my cookie sheet the most, but my cupcake tins and my 8×8 baker are surely a close second πŸ™‚

  38. Becky Haack

    I’d say my pizza pan, but I’m not sure that is baking. So I’d have to go with the cookie pan.

  39. Brenda

    I probably use my cookie sheets the most in my kitchen.. But I love all of this stuff!! I have been married for 33 yrs. and yes, some of my stuff really needs to be replaced.. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  40. Michele

    It’s a toss up between using a cookie sheet, loaf pans, and measuring cups! The muffin top pan looks neat never heard of such a thing!

  41. Kelly Williamson

    I use my cake pans the most often–seems like there’s always a birthday around here! Love this giveaway!

  42. pam

    I use the jelly roll pan ALL the time for just about anything, I dont have the muffin top but would love to have one…

  43. Ruchika

    I use my mini muffin tin so often! I like to experiment and make everything mini, and it helps me with portion control. I’ve made breakfast, potatoe, quiche, dessert minis to name a few!

  44. wendy

    I use my grandpa’s baking sheet and cooling rack the most. He was a pastry chef. I’ve always wanted to follow in his footsteps.

  45. Victoria V

    My cookie sheets! Especially the past week and a half…I’ve made 3 different batches of cookies. I’m addicted! πŸ™‚

  46. Stacia

    I definitely use my cookie sheets most often! Would LOVE that muffin top pan-thanks for the giveaway!

  48. wendy

    I use my grandpa’s cookie sheet and cooling rack the most. He was a pastry chef and I’ve always wanted to follow in his footsteps.

  49. Brandy

    I use my cookie sheet several times a week for things like french fries, coookies chicken tenders, but my favorite one to use is my mini muffin pan because I am usually baking chocolate chip pumpkin muffins in it.

  50. Kimmy

    I use my 9×13 baking pans the most! I bake a lot of bars and desserts! I also use my measuring cups and glass 8 cup measurer along with that while baking. My kitchen aid is always being use at our house as well..I love that thing! Couldn’t live with out it! πŸ™‚

  51. Crystal

    I definitely use my cookie sheets the most, but have been DYING for a muffin top pan, so this giveaway is right up my alley. πŸ™‚

  52. Julie B

    The baking sheet/cookie sheet gets the daily usage at my home! Cupcake pans and measuring cups closely follow πŸ™‚

  53. Julianne

    Boy, that’s a toss up! I use my jelly roll pan and baking stone pretty evenly. Because I make everything from scratch, I’ve always got something cooking!! πŸ˜‰

  54. Kimmy

    I use my 9×13 baking pans the most! I bake a lot of bars and desserts! I also use my measuring cups and glass 8 cup measurer along with that while baking. My kitchen aid is always being used at our house as well..I love that thing! Couldn’t live with out it! πŸ™‚

  55. Chelsea Norman

    Definitely my cookie sheet, and my silpat, does that count?? I don’t know how I ever baked without silpat before….

  56. Libbi

    my baking sheets! i got them about 3 years ago when we got married and those things show their wear πŸ˜›

  58. Maegan Oberholtzer

    My 8×8 pan is used by far the most!! For all of my brownies,coffee cakes,etc! I love it!! And I would LOOOVE to get my hands on that Muffin Top Pan!! πŸ˜€

  59. Jamie

    Probably my cookie sheet or bar pan which fits inside my toaster over (sized for 2) great for just me or me & my bf.

  60. Leslie

    Cookie scooper and measuring cups!! My roommates and I LOVE to cook but never have the greatest utensils!!

  61. Galina M

    I use my cookie sheet the most. I’m just now getting into baking, so I dont really have many pieces πŸ™‚

  62. Marjorie Rousseau

    Add me to the many that say …..cookie sheet! I gave most of my baking pans away to my daughter and her 5 children. Everything they bake is natural… preservatives or artificial colors……AND, they DO a lot of baking, even in our 100 degree weather in Arkansas. Thanks!

  63. I use my cupcake tin the most! I’ve been trying to get my husband to buy me another, so this would be a GREAT giveaway to win!!! Thanks so so much for hosting!


  64. Andrea F.

    I used my cookie sheets just about every day for all sorts of things beyond just baking. Heating up bread, chicken fingers, fries, etc. Also use them for quick freezing items, like fruit, meat, etc.

  65. The bake ware item I use the most is my Wilton Insulated Aluminum Cookie Sheet!! I love it, my cookies always turn out great…even if the time gets away from me πŸ™‚

  66. Kim

    Definitely Measuring cups!! I used to try to eye-ball measurements and wondered why my baking results would vary…DUH!!! I measure EVERYTHING now! πŸ™‚

  67. Janelle C

    It’s a toss up whether I use my cookie sheet or my 8 in round cake pans more πŸ˜‰ Just love to bake!!

  68. Stephanie

    I use all of my cake pans most often with cupcake pans coming in close second, I love to bake cakes and cupcakes. Always trying to make a different type of cake or cupcake with cute designs. Most recent cake was a flip flop cake for my neice’s 3rd birthday!

  69. Melanie Harding

    I love to cook and bake all kinds of different things. I have cooked for a large family and now just my husband and myself but still love to try new things!

  70. Melanie Harding

    Love to bake ans cook. I am always up for trying something new. I am repeating my comment as I don’t think the previous one took!

  71. Molly

    I definitely use my baking sheet most often. It’s been faithful to me everywhere from crackers to roasted peppers to snickerdoodles.

  72. I think my cookie sheets are my most used piece of bake ware, they are so versatile. My all time favorite kitchen item is my blue Kitchen Aid though.

  73. Jayme

    hmmmm…I use cookie sheets the most for sure. But my daughter is a clay artist and she uses the baking stone a lot for her projects. I’m not sure which one would actually see the most use in our kitchen. πŸ™‚

  74. Ronda

    I just told my husband that I can’t live without my kitchen-aid mixer. And if anything happened to it I was going to replace it right away not matter what it cost!

  75. Rachel J

    I use my baking sheets & cookie scoops the most (they go together!!). I have the muffin top pan on my wish list- so excited for a chance to win.

  76. Stacey Burke

    I use my cookie sheets most often ~ and boy!! do they look like it!! I also use a baking stone for pizza πŸ™‚

  77. Rose R

    My Chicago Metallic 10×7 roasting pan. It is always dirty, because I use it for everything from cinnamon rolls to dinner dishes. I really should buy a 2nd one.

  78. Julie

    Definately my cookie sheet and pizza stone, but closely followed by my muffin top pan (thank you very much) and my cup cake pans.

  79. Char

    I would love the mini cheesecake pan. I am in charge of the Ladies Golf Assoc. BBQ and I decided I am going to make mini cheesecakes for everyone. We live in a small town that doesn’t carry great cook/bakeware. We have to drive 3 hours in order to get great cooking stuff.

  80. Susie

    I have two cookie sheets and they’re both in use often! They’re also not very pretty to look at, so I cover them with foil so no one can see πŸ™‚

    Great contest!

  81. I guess I am not very original in saying my non-stick baking sheet! Between cookies, and my son’s rotating dinners of chicken nuggets, fish sticks, pizza, etc., it’s fair to say that we use it at least once daily! Thanks for the entry!

  82. Nicole B.

    I definitely use my cookie sheet for everything… broiling veggies, cooking meat, and most importantly, baking cookies!!

  83. Kristen

    I definitely use my cookie sheets the most. My goal is to start being a little more creative in the kitchen and learn to bake items other than cookies!

  84. Shanda Navarro

    First off, what a beautiful collection of bakewear. I use my measuring spoons, cookie scoop, and cookie sheet most often. I enjoy baking cookies and sharing them with others.

  85. Rebecca

    My cookie sheets definitely get used the most often. But I’m excited to start using my spring-form pan.

  86. Mary W.

    I use my cookie sheet for EVERYTHING! Roasting veggies, making fries, extra household trays, drying tomatoes, sorting beans…and of course, cookies! The thing I use next most often is my pizza stone…for making 5-minute bread.

  87. amey z

    i used my cookie sheet and pizza pan the most but some how in our move it didnt make it with us so now i am using my glass casserole pan now. nice huh!!! πŸ™‚

  88. Melissa Jackson

    I probably use my cupcake tins more often than anything else. They are so versatile. Plus, they are easily transportable to work or a party. A close second is my 9″ round cake pans. I would love some new ones that are in better condition!

  89. I follow you on Facebook! And I check out your website on a daily basis, just FYI πŸ™‚ Out of all of those you showed, I use the cookie scoop the most! I make cookies probably more often than I should πŸ™‚

  90. Laura P.

    I definitely use my cookie sheets the most–I am a baker at heart. I LOVE this giveaway! πŸ™‚

  91. Catherine

    I probably use a basic cookie tray the most. 10 years ago I was given a stoneware tray, just now trying it out!

  92. Kim

    We are recently gluten free and we are using our bread machine now more than ever. These pans look awesome because we are starting over with our baking tools due to the cross contamination

  93. Katie

    my favorite baking item in my kitchen is a dead tie in between my large cookie scoop (even though i use it all the time for filling my muffin tins) and my 9 inch round springform pan. I swear i use it for EVERYTHING from icebox cakes to cheesecake and even fruit tarts πŸ˜€

  94. Brittany Foley

    I use my brownie pan most often — I’m a sucker for all kinds of variations on fudgey brownies (particularly when they involve oreos!).

  95. jennifer h

    I think besides my measuring cups, I have a small jelly roll pan that gets used quite often, at least twice a day sometimes.

  96. Kim

    By far, the one piece of baking equipment that gets used the most (well, aside from the KitchenAid stand mixer) is the bundt pan. πŸ™‚

  97. Judy

    I love the muffin top pan. I use it for cookies, biscuits and fritters.. I would love to win. I have a muffin top pan, but not a good one……………..

  98. Crystal

    I definitely use my cookie sheet the most. It’s so work out though, I have to put tinfoil on it to keep the cookies from sticking!

  99. Julie

    Either my pizza stone or my jelly roll pan. We eat WAY too many breadsticks off of them! Love your site and recipes!

  100. Danielle

    I probably use my bar pans most. I have a few half size ones, which I love, because for just one person a 9×13 is a bit much. Either that or my cookie sheets.

  101. Claire Chamberlain

    I couldn’t live without my Kitchen-Aid mixer! It does everything! Now if I only had something in which to bake the tasty treats I’ve mixed…

  102. Melissa

    My cookie sheets are my most used baking tool, but I use my muffin pans a fair amount too. πŸ˜€

  103. Kyli

    I subscribe RSS feeder: I would love to have a new muffin set!! πŸ™‚ I just love baking plus I can make lots and lots of cupcakes!!! πŸ™‚

  104. Kristen Miller

    I love my mini muffin pan, but that one looks a little bigger which I would love, also I need the cookie scoop so bad I have always wanted one.

  105. Liza

    I use my muffin tins the most (along with the large scoop) … I make muffins all the time for me kids

  106. Katie

    I follow you on via RSS feed.

    I use my cookie sheets ALL the time. They’re great for so many things.

  107. Chris Taylor

    I use my Jelly Roll Pan most often. Baking cookies, roasting nuts in the oven, or even just to catch spills from things I’m baking.
