When you are baking breads, cakes or cookies, if you prefer a darker bottom or crust, use darker pans to bake them in. The dark pans absorb more heat and will brown your food item to a darker color.
If you prefer a lighter crust or bottom, stick to the shiny-silver or glass pans, as they absorb less or reflect the heat which directs it away from what you're baking. You'll end up with crusts and cookie bottoms that are lighter in color.
