1/2 Sheet Pan Proofing and Stacking Lids
« on: February 20, 2015, 04:08:34 PM »
When I was reading Jonas' thread about cross stacking ( http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=36721.0 ) I came across these little legs to stack pans called "Sklips."  I have been thinking of buying them but small quantities are expensive because of shipping.

The whole subject got me thinking about the frustration I sometimes have when I want to proof something in the fridge in a  1/2 sheet pan ( the approx. 13 X 17 pans) - be it focaccia, Sicilian pie, bagels, whatever.  You have to fuss with plastic wrap, which never fits right without multiple pieces, and spray some Pam around.  Further, if I have more than one pan, it really does become a battle for fridge space.

In my "googling" around, I found a simple fix that I was not previously aware of - Plastic Sheet Pan Lids.  They seem perfect for proofing and you can stack pans.  My narrow shelf in the fridge is about 6 inches and these - both pan and lid - take 2 inches in height.  So, I can easily stack two in my space and avoid the battle, the wrap and the Pam. 

$5 each in the local restaurant supply store!
