Why Aluminum Lasagna Pans are Great to Have Around the Kitchen
I’m a big fan of parties, get togethers, and entertaining guests. If you’re anything like me, you probably like to find the most cost efficient ways of putting these things together.
My partner and I were recently tasked with serving all the food for a family gathering at the house and I had to find something that wouldn’t break the bank. I was searching for a cheap and easy way to make enough lasagna to feed a crowd of 30 hungry guests, leaving me with more questions than answers.
After a bit of research, I came across some awesome sets of aluminum foil lasagna pans and I’m sure glad that I did.
These pans really came to the rescue when we needed it the most and allowed us to take care of the cooking without the risk of ruining my favorite cookware.
What Are Aluminum Lasagna Pans?
Aluminum foil lasagna pans are a type of (Disposable) pan that comes in a large pack, designed to be used for bulk cooking. They are generally made with high quality aluminum foil and the right ones should be very strong for the toughest cooking jobs.
You can usually find this type of pan or baking sheet in a pack of 10-50, depending on your budget and how many you plan to use. If you have regular get togethers it may be best to purchase a large quantity to keep around so you’ll always be prepared.
One of the best things about some of the aluminum lasagna pans with lids is that they can be purchased in almost any shape and size you will need for your special occasions. I picked up this 55 pack to try them out and was not disappointed.
This particular set of pans are made with a tough, heavy 50 gauge aluminum to stand up to the harsh test of thick lasagna. The “Waffle bottom” design works well in giving you additional strength and support that won’t fall apart when you grab it out of the oven and transfer it to the table.
You get a big 8.7″ x 6.2″ x 2.1″ to fit a large amount of product and the best part is, you don’t have to clean them at all! Once your party is over and all the lasagna is depleted, you just toss it and forget it. This will save you hours of cleaning time and allow you more time to mingle with company.
It’s always good to keep a backstock of aluminum pans so you don’t run out. Because the set includes 55 pans, you won’t have to worry about buying more pans any time soon. I do recommend a good cooking spray to go along with them, though, as they don’t generally come in a non-stick material.
