    I didn’t think it would make a difference to use this mat or to use parchment paper. I was wrong. These make all the difference in the world. I’ve made the same recipe for years and when I tried these mats the cookies actually came out better! Crunchy on the outside – soft on the inside. Would definately recommend these.

    Apparently, these baking mats are a thing, and I’m very glad they’re a thing. Before this mat, I would usually spray a baking pan with cooking spray, or use aluminum foil to cover the surface. This baking mat will save you from using either of those while helping the planet.To use, place the mat on a flat baking pan. It should fit just right or be slightly larger, in which case it’s not a big deal, the mat will curve up on the edge(s) [see photos]. If you ever need to just toss food on a pan without having to do other preparations, this mat is for you. There is no need for cooking spray or aluminum foil; it’s a very green solution. Cleaning it is a breeze. As nothing sticks to the mat, you wipe off crumbs or scrub off oil, and rinse. It is advertised as oven-safe for up to 480 °F/ 249 °C, so please keep it under that limit.— TIP —These are flexible, so roll them up when storing them. I personally leave one on a pan and store it in the oven so that it’s immediately ready the next time I want to use it. Do not bend them, or they may stay bent.These things are very convenient and will save you some valuable time in the kitchen where every second can count when multitasking and preparing a nice meal. Recommended.*** NOTE ***Do not cut these to fit your pan. Do not cut them at all. If these are like other baking mats, then they’re made of woven fiberglass and silicone. It has been properly manufactured with the fiberglass enclosed. Cutting the mat could expose the fiberglass, leading to potentially dangerous results.

    This product is Great, oh that is the title too, because we absolutely love this product. This belongs in every kitchen. Replaces parchment paper, aluminum foil, and non-stick sprays. Should have bought these years ago. We roll them up and keep them in an empty aluminum foil box.

    I love these mats. I do not think they are made to last for a year if you cook every day like I do. I go through a set in about 6 months. I buy new ones simply because they take the stains that I do not want my pan to take. I am always cooking with olive oil, I cook everything from meats to veggies, and I only wash them by hand since it is super easy to just rinse them off in the sink.I use them for broiling, but they do not get any closer than 6″ the upper electric elements. Similarly, I do not let them get closer than 6″ from the bottom elements of my electric range oven. Honestly, I know of very few recipes that call for the pan to be right up on the heating elements to justify the chance of burning your mat.They can go in the BBQ grill with medium heat (300-500)(only on an upper tier rack though!!!!!) no direct flames, but great for a cooking mat too keep stuff from sticking or falling through the grills.At the end of the day, silicone gets dirty when your pans stay clean. For $9 I can buy more to save my $50 pans.

    I bought these a few months ago now, and have used them for almost EVERYTHING. Most people have reviews like mine, where they are VERY HAPPY with them – I Think they are GREAT! They do an AWESOME job of what they are intended to do. Out of sheer curiosity, I read the comments of some of the ppl giving only 1 or 2 stars, complaining that theirs are scorched or burned… well i don’t know what the hell they DID to them, LOL B/C I baked something a few days ago that oozed OVER the pan, and in and under the silicone mat… It just Burned like that, at 425 DEGREES, for a WHILE before I realized what happened when I took said item out of the oven. I thought hat was it for that mat. NOPE. I just let it soak for a while, while I ate dinner (Not sure if I HAD to, I just did it out of habit), and EVERYTHING came up when I cleaned it! GOOD as NEW!! So the people complaining must have either got a defective batch, OR they are Lying are tried to BROIL with them! LOLThese are TOTALLY worth the money! I don’t expect them to last forever – nothing DOES – but when they DO wear out, I can promise you, I *WILL* buy another set! They’ve made my life SO much easier in the kitchen! I LOVE THEM!!

    These silicone baking mats get used regularly at my house. They are well-made and cut pan cleaning time down to a quick wash and rinse. The mats themselves come clean with minimal effort IF washed in the dishwasher. I have a sanitize cycle that I use every time I run my dishwasher (I specify this because I believe the hot water makes them come cleaner). I run them through with a full load of dishes (I specify this so you know everything comes good and clean with the mats in the dishwasher, too) on the bottom rack. I fold them, length-wise over a single, but full row of dividers for optimal clean. So the mat takes up 2 full rows where platters would go. Washing them by hand can be clumsy and seems like a waste of time/effort when they come so clean in the dishwasher. They maintain a slightly “oily” texture when clean, I store them on top of the sheet pans I use them with.

    I bought these mats for making macarons. At first I wasn’t sure if I should purchase it as some reviews stated that macarons got stuck to them. Well, first time using, first time making macarons and I’m extremely pleased. Rule number one : let the macarons cool completely before trying to rip them off the silicone mat . I haven’t ruined even one of them. I cooled them completely and they came off with ease , no issues. I don’t know what the problem people have with these mats. I highly recommend it. I’ll be buying more .

    These baking mats are hands down my favorite kitchen item (and magic erasers). I must have six of these and I use them almost everyday. Here’s what I can share with you…They are significantly easier to clean than a messy cookie sheet.They are a practical replacement for foil, parchment paper, cooking spray and oils.Nothing will stick to these. NOTHING.They can go from a freezer to a 480° oven.The inner fiberglass weave insures even heat distribution. Whether you are roasting veggies or making peanut brittle, uneven doneness is no concern.If you make cookies/pastries this is a must have. With cookies there are just a couple of things to keep in mind. Avoid insulated cookie sheets (IMHO). I prefer aluminum sheets with the silicone mat. Also, the slick silicone seems to make the cookies spread faster; perhaps that’s just my imagination.Occasionally, I’ll use them in baking dishes too. The end(s) may flop off the edge of the dish but no harm no foul.Try using one as a cover to prevent over-drying (it works).A girlfriend of mine uses these for candy making and sugar art (absolutely brilliant).Arts and crafts (seriously wonderful)! From playdough to polymer clay. From stamps to inky-inks. From glue guns to industrial glues. I’ve used these for many crafts.I have an eleven year old Silpat and these mats from AmazonBasics are standing up to it.They will last a lifetime with proper care. Proper care meaning don’t put in the dishwasher (guilty). Don’t use a knife on it. If you can help it, don’t even use a metal spatula (guilty again).What’s not to like?They’re ridiculously affordable.They reduce waste.They save time.They save money.Most importantly… no more sticking.Oh you… lovely silicone mats you…

    Been baking macarons for 4-5 years and I’ve never had good experience with silicone mats. Had a few preshaped macaron mats that always made my macaron shells stick to the mat leaving very messy residue to clean so I started using parchment paper. Cheap, made my macarons come off clean from the paper and no mats to wash! Perfect scenario.Been getting more macaron orders so I’ve been running through parchment paper like toilet paper. It’s ridiculous. Also was getting crinkled parchment paper where after I bang the life out of my macarons, there were uneven crinkles that would make my macaron very lopsided. Decided to finally purchase a silicone mat and give it another try. Came across this one from amazon with a lot of negative reviews stating that it wouldn’t bake their goods properly and there were a lot of sticky residue left over. Boo, but I decided to give it a try anyways.At first, it didn’t cook my macarons all the way. A lot of my shells didn’t come off clean, especially the middle of the sheet which was very annoying. Switched back to parchment for a few days and ran out AGAIN so i figured, maybe try different baking temperatures and time. Also bought a new cookie sheet to fit my mat and FOUND MY ANSWERS! The mat isn’t the problem, its the oven. So now, my macarons come off super clean, they bake evenly throughout and I don’t waste ANY macaron shells.So lesson learned, play with your oven’s temperature and cooking time. It can make a huge difference. I’m not an experienced baker. Just a self taught macaron baker so really, it shouldn’t take a dummy to figure this out.

    These baking mats are absolutely fantastic. The quality is superb, and SUCH a good price. I use them for just about everything I put in the oven. From oven pizzas, cookies, you name it! I also love that besides food sliding easily off the non stick surface, that they help protect all my baking sheets and such. It’s also super handy to just throw them in the top shelf of the dishwasher or even just wipe clean. Also, an easy tip for storing these, you can cut off about 1/3 of empty paper towel roll to use as a holder, and just roll up the mats and slip inside the roll/ring for easy storage of the mats in a drawer. I highly recommend these!Update;I’ve had these mats and we use them almost daily for almost a year now. They still look brand new and I have had no problems with staining, melting or the mats becoming worn. When using them, I cook most items at 375 degrees but have used them at up to 425 degrees several times with no issues so far. For clean up, I generally drape them over my cups in the top rack of the dishwasher and then when dry roll them up and slip a napkin ring or rings cut from and empty paper towel roll so they fit easily into a drawer. These things are fantastic and have paid for themselves many times over in the superior non stick surface, ease of clean up and the cost of parchment paper and or/aluminum foil I used prior to discovering these.
