This flexible mat lays flat to conform to your baking pan, and rolls up tightly for easy storage. It works perfectly for baking cookies, pizza dough, and candies. It even works for rolling out dough on the counter-top! The Baker's Mat can go from the freezer, to the microwave, to the oven - handling temperatures from as cold as -40F (or -40C) to as hot as 480F (or 249C).
Our family is usually lazy and cheap in the sense that we've never purchased parchment paper for baking, despite it's obvious abilities to keep delicious goodies from sticking to pans in the oven. We usually slather a thin coating of coconut or olive oil on the pan before baking, which helps, but leaves an uneven nonstick baking surface and sometimes oilier foods. This silicone baking mat has been a miracle worker in our kitchen. No oils needed, just place your dough on the mat (when it's on your pan of course) and slide it on in the oven! No sticking, no oily food, no over fried edges to anything. It is a good size for a medium size rectangular pizza (which does mean a few a needed for a bigger family, or two in the case of our family of three), and absolutely perfect for cookies.
