Ovens generally come with a drip pan among their accessories. You can also find drip pans at retailers of kitchen appliance accessories. The price can vary between 15 and 120 euros.

Ideal for cooking French fries (chips) or for pizzas when you want the crust to stay soft, a drip pan is also an ideal baking pan for making shortbread, cookies, and other sweet treats.

Protect the surface with parchment (baking) paper, and immediately clean it of any stains of fat or splashes to prolong its life and usefulness. Hot water and dishwashing liquid is enough to clean it, but it can also be cleaned in the dishwasher.

A drip pan prevents the oven from being soiled and protects the bottom of the oven from splashes or spills from dishes being cooked. It can also be used as a baking pan for pastries or to cook certain types of food, such as pizzas, steaks, etc. in the oven.
