Items needed for baking bagels
Hi. I haven't used this forum for several years but I need advice now. I have been baking bagels for about a year but now they are not cooking properly in the stove in my new apartment. I've been cooking them on parchment paper on older cookie sheets.
I want to buy new pans and am considering buying the aluminum pans with the rolled lips at the restaurant supply store. Do you think this would be a good idea?
Since I make about 3 dozen bagels at a time, a pizza stone wouldn't work for me. Are there other items I should use besides a cookie sheet?
I was looking into purchasing a donut cutter for cutting the bagels after I've rolled out the dough. Has anyone used a donut cutter? If yes, which one do you recommend and where did you buy it from?
Finally, a girl at the local store recommended that I buy the brown (untreated) parchment paper instead of the white parchment paper. Is there a difference between the two when baking?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
