My turbo broiler Pans for baking

I'm using a turbo broiler for baking cookies and cupcakes. A regular size muffin pan like this

won't fit my turbo broiler.  What I use for cupcakes are these individual stainless muffin pans and silicone muffin pans.
7 pcs of these pans will fit in the turbo broiler
 9 pcs of these silicone pans will fit in the turbo broiler
NOTE: 150 degrees, baking time 10-12 minutes.

For cookies:

non-stick round pan - 8 x 1 1/2 inches
NOTE: 150 degrees, baking time 10-11 minutes. make it 15 minutes if you want it to be more crunchier. 

For Banana Bread:

What I use is a non-stick loaf pan - 8 x 4 x 2 1/2 in.

NOTE: Temperature must be -  140 Degrees for 20 minutes.  

***Always remember: Turbo broiler or convection oven circulates heated air using a fan. This not only prevents overheating of food but also helps warm the food faster than the conventional oven. In baking, we need to lower the temperature for even results.
