Stainless steel inset pans and covers they are wide, cheep, and will last for ever.
They are the pans in the buffet tables.
I dyed a large piece of felt in the oven. poured in the dye, covered it.
baked it at 400 F for half hour then at 350 F for half hour turned off the oven and let it sit over night.
It came out beautiful, I can wait to try roving and printed fabric.
I bought mine from a local store because I needed it sooner than later.

I am so excited to see this tip! I sell hand dyed wool for a living and have been looking for a good idea for doing spot dyes on my commercial stove. I have catered for a living a lot over time, and why it never occurred to me to use one of these is a mystery! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

Right now I'm using the tin foil version of those, that I got at costco.  I was thinking I'd get something non-disposible after I'm out of these, but I may have them forever.  I have been reusing them quite a bit.  And it's nice to have a big stack of them, so I can have several things going at once.

The only issue with the disposable ones is that the metal can react with the dyes and alter the color.
