Target has the Nordic Ware Baker's Half Sheet for $6.99. They are $10 at Walmart and $22 for 2 at Amazon. These are Wirecutter's favorite half sheet.

I was able to get them to honor the price in store by showing the app price. It may be preferred to select them in store since occasionally a sheet has an imperfection. My store had dozens.

How is 13 x 18 a half sheet?
Because a full sheet is 26" x 18"

I use the blue scotch brite pads for these and my stainless pans. They have a rough surface but are non scratching.
we use the same sponges and they don't scratch these pans...

Do not buy this or anything else aluminum for cooking. Use stainless steel unless you want alzheimers or other health problems. Look it up if you are ignorant of it.
The irony here is immense.

I sort of agree, but also don't want to get overly paranoid, cause it is definitely possible to use aluminum cookware safely in some situations.

That said, I looked up some research, and found a good study from just two years ago using modern measurement techniques:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28458988

Some interesting findings:

- They tested a few brands of Mokapots (which are scary, cause the aluminum they use seems so raw and unfinished). After using them for a few brewings, the aluminum released into the coffee approached the levels of the stainless steel pot, due to "passivation of the pot surface". Butttt, once they threw the pots in the dishwasher (which you're not supposed to do), this removed the protective layer and the levels were back to the original high levels.

- For aluminum water bottles, brewing Messmer fruit tea (dont ask me why they didnt just use straight black or green tea), letting it cool a bit and then placing it in the bottle for 24hrs led to levels similar to the Mokapot test. When just storing tap water in them though, there were negligible amounts detected.

So avoid anything too acidic, and don't clean aluminum in the dishwasher, and you should be ok. Personally I don't mind going with stainless steel for peace of mind. Decent deal though.

Ok now show what the health hazards are because aluminum as an Alzheimer's risk has been debunked for years.

Thanks, that makes sense.

Why is aluminum preferred vs. steel? I realize I could Google, but it sounds like you have some knowledge on the topic.
Steel pans (not stainless) will rust over time. You don't want that in your food. I've had to put a layer of foil down before baking on mine. Aluminum doesn't rust. I like the heavy aluminum trays the restaurants use but you just buy those anywhere.

Debunked mainly by aluminum giant Alcoa of course.

Somewhat surprising that people still are so blind to a cheap price over health. Aluminum is toxic. Use old visionware glass, ceramic, or stainless steel only to prevent leaching.
We use aluminum half sheets all the time, but always lined with parchment or usually foil. Now you're going to tell me it's an osmotic gas...
