Pre-cut Parchment Sheets?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Okay, all you bakers, I'm pretty sick of trying to make lengths of parchment paper stay flat when I pull lengths off the roll. I read here somewhere that you can buy pre-cut pieces of parchment paper. So here are my questions:

1. I have 1/2 sheet pans; do they sell sheets for that size?
2. Will I have to buy 1,000 of them or pay an arm and a leg for, say 100-200 sheets?
3. Is there a reliable Internet source (or local, if you know of one in the Milwaukee area)?

Thanks!

I feel sheltered - I have never even heard of parchment on a roll.
I get full sheet pan size and cut them in 1/2 for 1/2 sheet pans. Boxes are 1000 count, but you could probably go to a bakery and ask to buy some off of them. IIRC they are about 5 cents a sheet WS
What are you using them for? Maybe a silpat would be a better investment

I have Silpats, but I like the parchment, too. If 1000 weren't too expensive I could probably find somewhere to store them....

I can get them in SF for about $35/1000 - 1/2 sheet size. I've never bought them cos I think my grandchildren would be finishing off the box long after I am gone.

But now I think of it that is only 9 or 10 rolls which a) don't fit the sheet pan properly and b) have that annoying habit of rolling up. Maybe I will invest in a box :chef:

Yes, ChefRaz, I mean to use them at home. I HATE it when I have to get a length of it to lie flat but it just rolls up and falls on the floor, into the sink, etc. :mad: That size would also be nice for making chicken, etc. dishes "en papillote".

Shel, I bought them from King Arthur. Thanks for the link!

Here is a source for 1000 sheets for the full size sheet pan for $45.00 plus shipping.

Parchment Paper, Non-stick Coated, Case Of 1000, Size of She, Silpat & Parchment Paper

We use the full size sheets but they are easily folded and cut in half with a knife for half sheet pans.

have you tried spraying the sheet pan and then placing the cut to size parchment on top?

I find that if I brush or spray a little pan grease on my sheet or jelly roll or cookie sheets I don't find this problem.

You have to hit the corners good though, because if you're baking or cooking in a convection oven the fans will blow your paper up.

I find mine at a place called Smart & Final. 1000 ful-sheets are about $35 - 40. I cut them in half so I actually have 2000. Although your initial out-lay is a little more, in the long run, it's the only way to go because the roll is sooo much more per sheet. Mine last for a few years and I use them ALL the time. Good luck.
