Most boxes of brownies, recipes etc. say "in a 9x9" pan. Well I lost mine somewhere and now can only find
When did that happen? Should I buy one and just use it like a 9 x 9?
I have the Chicago Metallic commercial 9 x 9 pan and love it.

Bought one at Williams-Sonoma before Thanksgiving. I had to do it, because I couldn't find one anywhere else and needed it right away. It was the last one they had at that store that week.
I usually use pyrex not metal. Is the Williams Sonoma one metal?
I always read that glass is better for baking. Not true? Only true for some things?
The one I got was metal.
marys1000, I switched to metal baking pans (not nonstick) after reading some horror stories about Pyrex exploding. I didn't dump my Pyrex, and I still use them occasionally, but I really like the metal pans.
IIRC, many recipes suggest adjusting the baking temperature if using glass, something I don't have to worry about with the metal.
I spray my pans with that cooking spray that's specifically for baking (I think it's an oil/flour combo?), and I've never had a problem with sticking. I use the same brand of cookie sheets, with parchment paper or spray.
