Question by Bernie H: Why do baking pans rust in the dishwasher and how do I prevent it?
I’m sick of cookie sheets and pizza pans etc, rusting in the dishwasher. How can I prevent it…or can’t I?

Answer by Kris L
All of our ‘metal’ baking pans rusted eventually … so I buy the new ‘silicone’ baking pans now … they ‘discolor’ but it’s not ‘rust’ that can get into the ‘baked goods’ … and they are so much EASIER to store, since they ‘fold’ and you can ‘stuff them in’ where a cookie sheet or pizza pan wouldn’t fit. Yes, they cost a bit more, but are ‘so great’ that if you do a lot of baking, you should consider getting them. The only thing I don’t really like is that I still have to use a ‘regular’ cookie sheet under the silicone one, because the tend to ‘bend’ through the bars on the oven rack. The COOKIES come out looking and tasting MUCH BETTER though!
