One of my daughters asked me which of our stoneware I'd recommend for making brownies. (She said that Pyrex just "isn't cutting it" any longer)

Medium Bar Pan fits a reg box of brownies. But Rec. baker for thicker ones.

I like thin brownie and use the Large Bar Pan with a Family Size box of brownie mix. :)

I use the square baker and get rave reviews about my brownies! I tell everyone that it is just a box mix, but the "secret" is the pan!

Square baker unless I am doing brownies for a trifle then the large bar pan. Either pan use the 9x13 size mix.

I use the Large Bar Pan and use 2 brownie mixes. They are just plenty thick and not too thin. I also add brown sugar and chocolate chips to the batter. It is kind of like the carmel chocolate brownie recipe that was in one of the Season's Bests and they are wonderful.

I use the rectangular baker. I like the 9x13 size. To me, they are the perfect thickness. :) I like to just use the standard 9x13 mix. I don't own the square baker, so I don't know how they compare. But I make casseroles, baked ziti, lasagna, etc. so I already own the rectangular baker. I own the square metal pan, so I haven't been able to find a reason to buy the square baker just yet. ;)

Dang, you all have me wanting to make brownies, now!! And, since I don't have the Square Baker, I'll have to try Ashley's recipe in the Large Bar Pan.

Hey, why is that called a pan, but the other stones are bakers? Hmm, quite the quandary.

I have never actually made bar pan! I always make them in the square baker. But all this talk makes me want to try them in another pan. (Strictly for scientific purposes, of course!)

I sell a ton of the medium bar pans as "my brownie pan". I find that to be the perfect size. I have the rec baker and never once gave it thought to use for brownies. I will next time just to see which I like better. Come to think about it, I have never once used my rect baker...poor thing. It must feel neglected. ;)

I made a good batch in my large bar pan, believe it or not. I didn't think it would work, but it surely did. They were thin but came out awesome!

I made brownies in my square baker in our RV oven last week and they came out perfect. If we ever try to bake anything in that oven in a metal pan the bottoms come out black so we only bake with our stoneware in there.

It takes about 11 minutes in the microwave, in the square baker.

I say the square metal pan for brownies, they come out perfect every time. I used the square stone for them for years but always had chocolate goo and never was able to get them to be pick up and eat worthy, always had to eat them with a fork! If you like chocolate goo which my daughter loves then it's all good. But I tell everyone to get that square metal pan, it's awesome!!
