The standard half sheet pan is 17¼ by 12¼ by 1 inch (12 cups), measured from the inside top. My favorites are USA Pan nonstick and Lincoln Wear-Ever 13-gauge (#5314). It’s fine to use one that is slightly larger or slightly smaller, but, if you are using it to bake a cake, the thickness of the cake will vary accordingly.
