A silicone baking mat is a non-stick baking surface made from high-quality, food-grade silicone. This surface comes in several shapes and sizes to fit various types of baking pans. The main benefit to owning a silicone mat is that, unlike parchment paper, it’s reusable. The silicone mat is also especially well suited for jobs that may prove too hot and sticky for parchment paper to stand up to without reinforcement.
What Is a Silicone Baking Mat Used For?
You can use a silicone baking mat in many different ways. Here’s a list of what you can use a silicone baking mat for.
Replace parchment paper or aluminum foil on baking sheets
Keep baking pans clean
Lay a silicone mat flat on a countertop to knead bread or roll out cookie dough
Put on a tray to heat up food in the oven
Cover baked goods in the oven to make sure they rise evenly
Place under a cake ring to keep cake batter from sticking to sheet pan
Many brands of silicone bakeware live up to their non-stick name. However, greasing or spraying your silicone mats before placing dough or food on them will help when it is time to remove your freshly baked treat. Regardless of the mess your chocolate chip cookies make on a cookie sheet, a silicone mat will help keep the mess at bay, and your cookie sheets in better condition to last longer.
How to Use a Silicone Baking Mat
Whether you are baking cookies, kneading dough, or baking a cake, you can use a silicone baking mat. To use as a pan liner, simply lay the mat flat on a cookie sheet if you want to make cookies. If you are worried about your cookies sticking, spray your mat with non-stick spray before you place cookies down.
When it comes to a work surface, you can also place the silicone mat on a countertop if you plan on kneading bread or rolling out cookie dough. This will save flour and also prevent your countertop from becoming a mess in the process.
