    Let's say you're roasting vegetables, do you put the vegetables directly on the tray? or do you line it with foil first?

    I've always lined my trays with foil, but watching MKR and various other cooking shows, no one seems to (but that is probably because they don't have to clean the dishes themselves)

    No foil. I have stainless steel. They go in the dishwasher. Just need a bit of Gumption for any stuck-on bits. (I also have some non-stick ones, they just wash/wipe (but I usually use the stainless steel).)

    Depends on the pan and what I'm cooking...
    Seldom use foil though, more often use baking paper... I find stuff seems to stick to foil worse than anything else.

    oiled foil or baking paper is the only way to go - makes life a lot easier.

    I tried using the tears of leftists, but like everything else from them, it was useless. So now I use baking paper.

    give baking paper a go, it's surprisingly good for a lot of stuff. oven chips and things like that it's brilliant with.

    My trays are so old and rusted, I use baking paper every time.

    +1 baking paper

    NOT greaseproof paper, different thing and your baked goods will stick

    I can understand why people would use baking paper when baking biscuits so they don't have to grease the tray, but with roast veggies you've got oil/shortening just chucked in, it's no effort to spread it around. I don't really get why you'd use paper? :confused:

    Foil for me... always.

    Haven't had to scrub a baking tray in years.

    try it, you might change your tune pretty quickly. nothing to lost except a sheet of baking paper.

    I've tried baking paper on my trays, but I rarely bother with it unless it's something I absolutely can't have sticking.

    Most things I'll just slap straight on the tray. All my trays are pretty basic, they're not non stick or anything, so if anything does stick to the pan. A little soak in water and a quick hit with a scraper gets everything off anyway.

    i was incredibly sceptical until i saw it in action. nothing ever sticks that's the benefit - nothing.

    yep, ease of cleaning is the only reason i use baking paper

    sometimes i'll use foil as a base layer then baking paper on top, if i know there's going to be lots of juices etc.

    makes cleaning almost non-existent

    but so does bunging in the dishwasher, and there's no additional cost. In my experience, spuds only stick if you mess with them before they've got their crust on.

    I use a glass baking dish, I find everything cooks better without foil/paper.

    After putting it in the dishwasher it comes out brand new, something I can't say for any other type of baking dish I've ever had.
