I bought this baking sheet for the price! At $.98 I felt it was a steal! My advice would be to not put food directly on the pan, but use parchment paper that can be thrown away! This does not have a nonstick coating and has to be immediately washed and dried well, or it will rust! Using parchment paper it should last a long time! I bought mine to use to stack bags in my freezer! Once the food is frozen lying flat I remove it from the sheet and stack it on the shelf! There's 100 different things you could use a flat surface in your kitchen especially for $.98 !
