Seen Bobby Flay's ads for ceramic baking sheets? What do you think?

Normandie | Nov 27, 200907:55 AM     7

Recently I've seen his commercials hawking his cookware and electrics for Kohl's. I was really surprised to see the line has in it ceramic baking pans, shown for baking cookies. Now, I know that some participants here have noted that they don't really like ceramic for baking. I believe the concerns that most noted was that they don't really like the way that crusts and bottoms of breads and cakes, etc., turn out. *I* love my ceramic bakeware and am very happy with the quality of the final products. However, I'm having a hard time thinking about baking cookies on ceramic, and was wondering what you all think? Wouldn't ceramic store an awful lot of heat--i.e., if you peeked and thought you needed to turn the temp up or down, would ceramic respond quickly enough? Also, would it take longer for the sheets to cool down once a batch of cookies are baked, thereby delaying how quickly you could re-use the pans? I've never seen cookies baked on ceramic before, and I asking myself if there are good reasons for that. And I guess I'm asking you all the same. ;-)
