  1. There are some interesting points in time in this article but I donÂ’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well

  2. What a fabulous giveaway!!! I probably use my 8×8, 9×9 or 13×9 pans the most. Love them. My cookie sheet also get used pretty regularly too. I love to bake!!!

    I make muffins like a boss. Even things that aren’t supposed to be made in muffin tins, I do. Tiny s’mores brownies, tiny egg breakfast things, tiny banana bread…

  7. Beth Nelms

    Most definitely my cookie sheets see the most action in my kitchen. Lately, the muffin tins have also been quite active! I couldn’t use iether if I didn’t have an awesome scooper!

  8. delia

    The only bakeware I have is a cookie sheet, but I would love to branch out to be able to bake other tasty things.

  9. Cheryl B.

    I use a jelly roll pan lined with a Silpat liner the most. I use it for cookies, biscuits, chicken breasts and a lot more.

  10. Rachel M.

    I use the sheet pans the most, for baking cookies, chicken, and salmon (not all at once though:))

  11. Megan F.

    It’s a toss up between the measuring cups and the cookie sheet. I use both about everyday and they are certainly showing the wear and tear!

  12. Brooke

    I use my sheet pans and silpats ALL the time! I also get a lot of use out of my La Cloche clay baking vessel.

  13. Laurie

    Okay… The most used piece of bakeware I own is my cookie sheet. It is so versatile: from cookies to roasting vegetables to a pizza crust (focaccia style) to salmon en papillote, etc. I can never have too many cookie sheets. I am fortunate to have a double oven with a convection setting that allows me to cook 6 cookie sheets at a time! This really comes in handy for all the baking I do for my kids’ schools and volunteer activities. I have made quite a few of your recipes on my baking sheets! I can always use more bakeware because I just love to bake! =)

  14. Lana

    I use my cookie sheets the most. They are well “seasoned” and not very pretty anymore.

    I follow you on Twitter, like your Facebook page and subscribe to your RSS feed!

  15. Callie B.

    I definitely use my cookie sheet…almost daily! It was once pretty, but after learning how to cook with it…it is not doing too well!

  16. My most used piece of bakeware is probably my 9×13 Pyrex pan. There is a book on my wishlist that is all about using your 9×13! Maybe I’ll get it for Christmas?

  17. Katie

    Cookie sheets are always out and being used. But a mini cheesecake pan?! I would used it. All. The. Time.

  18. alexis ellysse

    I definitley use my cookie sheet and my muffin pan all the time. I’ve been recently into my Wilton donut pan, too (its not practical but so stinkin’ awesome to have donuts around). :o)

  19. Jordan

    My cookie sheets definitelyyyyy get the most attention in the kitchen, I am forever whipping up a batch or two for friends and family. And I like to eat the dough while I bake πŸ˜‰

  20. my round stoneware from Pampered Chef. It’s dark brown even has a chip out of it but I love it and use it for everything!

  21. Lindsay

    My muffin tins and brownie pan – love those little individual brownies you can pop right out of the pan!

  22. Lori C

    I bake a ton of cookies, so baking sheets and bar pans are a staple in my kitchen. I also use my deep dish baker a lot for meals.

  23. Erin Slattery

    I use a cookie sheet the most often for baking treats to warming veggie chick patties, fries, etc.

  24. Beth

    About 25 years ago, I bought two commercial jelly roll pans. I use them for baking cookies, making sheet cakes,etc. They were very expensive way back then, but I have definitely gotten my money’s worth from them.

  25. Melanie

    Mine would be a toss up between my muffin tins (muffins, cupcakes, mini pies, etc.) and my cookie sheets that I use for everything!

  26. Probably my cookie sheet, boring eh? Although I’m excited at the prospect of getting that muffin top pan and mini cheesecake pan since I’ve wanted to try a few of your recipes with those and my hubby won’t let me buy them! Oh, and I’d take those stainless steel measuring cups (I just broke a dorky plastic one of them the other day!) Heck, all of that stuff is nice and the cookie sheet is just like mine, just mine doesn’t look as pretty anymore! πŸ™‚

  27. Kortney

    My boyfriend and I bake a lot. We generally use the jelly roll pan a lot. This stuff would be great to have for our future apartment.

  28. Nancy Jo

    I use my Cupcake pan the most. I love making various cupcakes for snacks and desserts and muffins for breakfast.

  29. Julie N

    I use my jelly roll pans the most. They are very versatile. All of these products are fabulous, I would especially love the muffin top pan! Thank you!

  30. Deidre Joy Johnson

    I use them all actually, I absolutely love to bake! But I think the mini muffin pan is super cute!

    EnJOY the day!
    Deidre Joy : )

  31. ChristiL

    I was going to say cookie scoop, but that would mean I used the cookie sheet just as often, right? So – cookie scoop and cookie sheet it is…

  32. My rimmed cookie sheet/jellyroll pan is in constant use. I cover with parchment to make my (in)famous sugar cookies. Cover it with foil to bake chicken breasts or meat.
    It seems that every time I wash dishes, it is in there.

  33. Nicole H.

    For baking tools I would have to say my measuring cups! For baking pans it would have to be a tie between my large muffin pans and my mini muffin pans!

  34. Charlene

    I bake alot! I use my kitchen aid mixer, cookie sheets & cookie scooper lots! This is a neat giveaway! I love reading your blogs! Thanks

  35. Margaret

    Well, those are some mighty shiny new “toys” for the kitchen, but think hands down I’d just love to win those lovely measuring cups. How often do I wish I had another set when I’m in the throes of some serious baking!

  36. Jessie Peck

    I use the cookie scoop for a ton of things. I love it. It is the most versatile item in my drawer

  37. Emma

    I would say usually my cookie sheets but lately the mini- muffin tin for my daughters mini- muffin obsession.

  38. Valerie J.

    I use my old airbake cookie sheet the most of all my bakeware (several times a week) but it’s pretty beat up and the edges bend up toward the center of the sheet.

  39. Susan D.

    I use my baking sheets ALL the time!!! Not just for baking on, but for
    Holding things for prep work and grilling and more!!!

  40. Jessica

    I “Like” you on facebook and LOVE following you… my life (nor my waste-line) has been the same since! πŸ˜‰ LOVE your page!!!

  41. shantel davis

    I use the cookie sheet the most in my kitchen. Baking cookies,chicken nuggets or pizza is a common event!

  44. Pam R

    I would have to say that my muffin pan get the most use in my kitchen! I just love making cupcakes πŸ™‚

  46. Tiffany Hawkins

  48. Allison

    The piece of bakeware that I use most often is my loaf pan. I use it for bread, terrines, icebox cakes, and cakes!

  49. Candice

    My pizza stone gets used the most. I leave it in the oven and it helps maintain the heat when I bake or roast.

  50. Katie Pauline

    It is probably a tie between my muffin tin and my cookie sheet! I love to bake treats that I shouldn’t eat. πŸ™‚

  51. Ailene Z.

    I love to bake! The most used bake ware in my kitchen would have to be my cookie sheet. We have found so many uses for it. Thanks for the opportunity to win. πŸ™‚

  52. Brittany Norman

    My favorite piece of bakingware is definitely an 8×8 pan. πŸ™‚ So multifunctional! Good for everything from brownies to cornbread!

  53. kelly

    i use my 9×13 pan the most to make and bring snacks in for my coworkers all the time! i like to try out different recipes on them :o)

  54. Maria M.

    my measuring cups i use the most and not necessarily for measuring but for mixing small amounts of herbs, crushing etc.

  55. Szkent

    LIke everyone else my baking sheets. From baking to roasting to prep work we use them on a daily basis.

  56. Vicki Sowards

    I use my bread pans at least once a week. My goal this year is to make the BEST wheat bread!!

  57. Kelli Morris

    Wow! My dream give away!
    I use my Pampered Chef cookie trays(I don’t know what they are officially called) They are heavy and cook evenly and wash up easily. I use them nearly every day.

  58. Lisa

    My favorite item to use is my silicone baking sheets. Cookies come out perfect. Not to mention that I can make peanut brittle and candy with the utmost ease.

  59. Brittany

    I would say that I use baking sheets the most. Pizza once a week and cookies for a treat πŸ™‚

  60. Adrienne Hayes

    I definitely use my Chicago Metallic Professional 18″ x 13″ x 1″ Cookie/Jelly Sheet the most.

  61. Rachel

    Definitely my beat up cookie sheets and my baking/casserole dish. I used to have everything I needed, but we recently moved and my son adopted all of my cake pans, measuring spoons, measuring cups and muffin tins. πŸ™

  62. i probably use my 9 x 13 cake pan from the bakeware section of my kitchen the most.
    taking cakes into work, this size is the easiest to serve a group.

    like your website!

  63. Georgianna

    I’m completely abusive to my cookie sheets. Simple as they are, the are a staple in my baking!

  64. Melissa mandella

    I use my cupcake pans a lot. I would love another muffin tops pan, I love muffin tops. Not on me, but in me!

  65. Stephanie F

    Definitely my cookie sheet! Dying to get those muffin top pans though so I can make your snickers cheesecake cookies πŸ™‚

  66. Maribeth Vagneur

    I use my cookie sheet almost everyday. Not so much for cookies but making pizza’s, I use them to catch any drippings if I am cooking a casserole ect. I love them, couldnt live without them! πŸ™‚

  67. Angie

    I use my ice cream scoop almost every day. It’s perfect for measuring out batters (like for pancakes), as well as scooping ice cream!

  68. Karen

    It’s a toss up between a muffin pan (for cupcakes) or my 9in cake pan-either way I still get cake!

  69. The bakeware I use most often is my heart-shaped cake pan! I make brownies, cornbread, crisps, cakes, everything in it. It just makes you happy to eat out of it.

  70. Debbie

    My scoop. For…salmon cakes, muffins, pretty rice presentation, potato salad presentation. The possibilities are endless. But I use my cookie sheet equally as often for oven everything.

  71. April Lusk

    I would use the cake pan to further myself in starting my cake & pastry business w/ the jelly pan being used to make succulent peanut butter chocolate bars & many more things! Chicago Metallic in the baking world is consider one of the highest used & worthy brand to use!! I can’t wait until I can own pieces of Chicago Metallic!

  72. Gayle

    Until it broke last week while I was making a HUGE order of cake pops, I used my scoop that was just like this (well, a crummy version of this awesome one)! I could really use a new one!

  73. Jeanne

    My cookie sheets! I’m still using the old Airbake sheets I got as a wedding shower gift 20 years ago. πŸ˜€

  74. ellen

    Meatloaf pan–for meatloaves as well as breads and sometime as a mold. What I’m desperately looking for is a large size muffin pan; tons of regular-sized ones but no large ones.

    P.S. I love, love, love your blog. I think I gain a pound each time I read it!

  75. Lynda Clark

    I think the piece of bakeware I use most is my 9X13” baking pan.

  76. Beth C

    Seems like I can’t cook without measuring cups. Every recipe I use needs something to be measured! Thanks for all you do. Love your ideas!

  77. mim

    I would say I use my 1/2 sheet pans the most. From baking cakes, cookies and bars to using them for roasting veggies or cooking up some bacon. I use them all the time!

  78. Cellabella

    I use my jelly roll pan the most now, but I want to bake more muffins and tea breads this summer too!

  79. Leesa Gentry

    The measuring cups for sure are the item I use the most but would love the great cake pans. Have old cheap pans that make misshaped cakes every time. My husband loves the experiment with cake recipes and uses his favorite pans that are worse than mine. Have gotten him to upgrade almost everything but those pans.

  80. Amanda S

    My cookie sheet! Though I will admit that I’ve used it more for making dinner than dessert πŸ™‚

  81. Sandra Henslee

    I definitely use the measuring cups most often in my kitchen. I have 3 sets and still run out!

  82. Robin

    I use my cookie sheets all the time. My son knows something fun is going to happen when I get them out!

  83. My most used baking dish is a long, flat ceramic bowl. Which I use in the microwave. :l yeah. I’m due for some baking machinery! My oven friendly bake-ware consists of a 9×9 pan. This would be an excellent starter kit.

  84. I think my baking sheet is my favorite and most used. I can do everything from cookies, bruschetta, and setting casserole dishes on it to cook!
    But I am loving the muffin top pan!

  85. ashley

    Just my plain old 9×13 baking dish! Use it for everything!! Maybe I should branch out…with these great items!!

  86. I definately use my 9×9 pan the most because I bake brownies all the time. It is also great for cooking halved casseroles and reheating leftovers!

  87. I definately use my 9×9 pan because I make brownies all the time. It is also a great size for baking a halved casserole or reheating leftovers!

  88. Tracy

    Our pizza pan that has holes in the bottom of it (they are supposed to be there) because it makes our pizzas and breads crispy.

  89. kristin m.

    i own a couple of chicago metallic jelly roll pans and i use them almost daily! they are by far the best pans i’ve ever owned! i’ve been dying to get my hands on a mini cheesecake pan – you should totally pick me mr. random genarator dude! kristinmik at gmail

  90. Dianna DeWeese

    I use my cupcake pan’s and my mini scooper and my cookie sheet, I make cupcakes and cake balls, trying to start a home based cupcake and cake and cookie pop business.That is 3 but that’s what I use most.

  91. Okay, I don’t know if this counts as bakeware, but I have to say my cooling rack. I use it whenever I use my cookie sheets, of course, but also I use it to roast EVERYTHING, and it makes garlic toast the best!
