Once you go parchment paper, you'll never go back. I line EVERYTHING, especially anything in aluminum.

Hubby likes the big Costco lasagne that comes in a foil pan. I turn it over (still frozen), and pop the lasagne out. Lay the parchment paper over the bottom of the food, put the foil pan back on. No baking in aluminum (very bad for your health -- aluminum has been found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients).


Once we've had several servings, I can just lift out the leftovers (still in the paper) and drop into a smaller storage container. If I do this carefully, I hardly need to wash anything. ;-)

My memory is going, I can feel it happening but I can't remember which way it is going

Since I use so much parchment, I purchased a box of 1000 sheets from a cooking supply store. The sheets are the size of full sheet pans. Since I use half sheet pans and smaller, that gave me 2000 sheets.

I bought it years ago, shared a lot of it, and use it regularly. I am still using the same box. My cost was around $35. Last time I checked it was the same price.

I line my foil pans, place bread dough on it, cut to size cake pans I am using, line dutch ovens, line foil when making hobo packets, etc. if you use parchment, it is almost like an investment.

WOW! I thought I was living big when I bought the big roll from Costco! I will definitely look for these sheets!

I prefer the rolls to sheets so that I can cut to size, but I love the convenience of the Dutch oven liners, and they're relatively inexpensive.

My wife says that tomatoes' acidity (in lasagna or whatnot) will eat at the aluminum and pit it, which means it's getting dissolved into the food. Not good! So you are very wise to use the parchment paper if aluminum is involved.

Of course, one also absorbs aluminum if one uses anti-perspirant (we just use deodorant).

I'm remembering the 'hobo dinner' method of campfire cooking... wrapping the food in foil and placing in the fire... and realizing how ill-advised that method may have been. Do you think parchment paper would survive the heat if it were placed between the food and the foil in that situation? Also, I'm wondering how parchment paper would hold up if used in a situation where the food must be stirred frequently, like in a frying pan?

Let's see. Swanson's pot pies and all those other dinners in the frozen food section at the market, what shall we do with those?

Yep, it's true. There's no antiperspirant without aluminum. But you can adapt and get by with deodorant. (Now we're veering dangerously OT, BUT, someone mentioned in another thread that talc is related to ovarian cancer. Actually, I believe it's related to cervical cancer. SO, I have been making my own body powder for several years out of cornstarch, arrowroot powder, and baking soda. Add THIS to deodorant, and antiperspirant becomes irrelevant.)


Yes, I think that hobo dinner is deadly. I have done some little packet dinners which called for aluminum foil packets, and I HAVE wrapped them in parchment paper first, and it held up just fine.


I haven't (and probably wouldn't) try parchment paper in a frying pan. If stuff has to be stirred, I use cast iron or good stainless steel (the kind a magnet will actually stick to). Yep, some stuff you just gotta wash.

Well, you could always turn those out also (in their frozen state) and line them with parchment paper as well.


This doesn't even address the toxins that come out of those plastic trays some frozen stuff comes in. Yeah, that's not good either. Sometimes I DO get those for one reason or another and do pop them out into little glass casseroles, etc. And, full disclosure, sometimes I do cook in the plastic, but I know it's bad, wrong, and I will be punished. There's only so much self-preservation we can muster.

What about the toxins in cast iron, stainless steel and glass? And, what about air?
We never hear about those.

Goodness. SOMEONE IS a worrywort! I can't speak for toxins in the air, because I believe that varies based on locale. As for the other items in your list, there is little to worry about. Except for "cheap" stainless steel, which has some other metals that aren't so great.

What about the toxins caused by worry?

Maybe just clear out the aluminum and take a chill pill?
