:3M pad, full strength Dawn, elbow grease. Be a fanatic about cookie
:sheets, which should be bright and shiny. Roasters can be dark and it
:doesn't matter. Or pitch the old one, buy a new stainless one.
For cookies I use a teflon coated pan. I don't bake cookies on my
aluminum cookie sheet anymore. I use it for other oven tasks, not
cookies. Stainless, it seems to me, would have problems of its own.
Teflon cleans so readily, it's really just the thing for cookies. Cleans
in a snap. Must use plastic utensils and scrubbers, however!
