According to some more lenient rulings, however, you can kasher metal baking pans by placing them in the oven, set at the highest setting, for one hour or let them stay in the oven during the self-cleaning process.

Glass baking pans just need to be washed, according to Conservative halakhah (Jewish law). According to Orthodox rules [in Ashkenazic tradition], they cannot be kashered and must be replaced. [According to Sephardic and Mizrahi halakhah, glass baking pans can be kashered by exposing them to flame or baking them in the oven on the highest setting.]
