Amazon Basics Silicone Baking Mat, 2 Piece Set, Old Standard, Rectangular, 101.6 x 76.2
About this deal
Place the roll with the chocolate on it in the fridge to harden and then remove the pieces in random chunks and use to decorate your favorite baked goods. Always adhere to the silicone baking mat’s max temperature as listed by the manufacturer (which often ranges from 420°F to 480°F) and never use silicone mats under the broiler.
It should be noted that this mat measures 25- x 18-inches, making it exactly the right fit for a full sheet pan. However, Rachel found it flexible enough to fold in half for use on a half sheet pan. Just pipe your egg whites into meringue shapes and bake them at a low temperature. They will be perfectly cooked on the bottom and the sides and you have far less likelihood of burning the bottoms. Various brands and manufacturers will stipulate different heat limits for each of their own silicone baking mats, but they often range from 420°F to 480°F. Silpat, a very popular brand of silicone baking mat, can be used at temperatures up to 500°F.
Oven Safe Temperature: 480 degrees | Sizes Available: 9.3 x 8.7 inches (toaster oven), 16.5 x 11.6 inches (half sheet)
While the larger size is not as large as some other silicone baking mats, this Cuisinart model is perfect for your smaller baking sheets. Measuring 11.6 x 16.5 inches, it’s considered half sheet size, but it also has blunt corners, so it will fit baking sheets with rounded edges.
We love a kitchen gadget that serves more than one purpose, and the Grand Fusion Silicone Baking Mat does just that. Though your kitchen collection may keep growing, your storage capacity does not. This silicone baking mat does the job of the others, since it can also change itself into a leak-proof tray. Just snap the corners together to create a basket that fits into smaller baking pans with higher walls. The patent-pending design is one of a kind and allows you to catch liquids from moist foods. I love roasted veggies. Cooking them in the oven brings out the natural sweetness of vegetables but it can make a real mess out of roasting pans. I fix this easily when I use a silicone baking mat for roasting vegetables by placing the mat on a normal baking sheet.
Due to the thinner nature of parchment paper, it has a tendency to annoyingly curl up and can potentially shift on the pan when being moved. Use with caution – tilt your baking sheet too much and the parchment paper (along with all your baked or unbaked treats) will slide right onto the kitchen floor. Wasteful
This mat is dishwasher safe, but the thin, floppy build makes it fairly easy to wash in the sink by hand: "The lighter color of this mat could retain more stains over time, but the material wiped clean pretty easily after the first initial uses," says Rachel.
