The mats are made of food grade silicone fiberglass mesh. They have a chewy texture that frankly made me skeptical about putting them in the oven, but the promise of non-stick cooking intrigued me enough to try it. And after testing them on a variety of foods, I was sold.
The first was roasted prosciutto. Normally, delicate meat like this sticks to a baking sheet or even foil, but it practically slips off the Silpat mat after becoming crispy in the oven. Then I used a mat to bake chocolate chip cookies rather than prepping my pan with cooking spray. I was delighted to see the baked cookies slip off the mat with a quick shovel from my spatula.
Because rugs are reusable, they are a great investment that will last you a long time. However, you do have to clean them between uses, which is the only foil surface that has beaten them in terms of convenience. All in all, it’s worth taking the time to clean the carpets to find out how well they keep food from sticking and dirt from forming.
Thousands of Amazon buyers agree. The rugs have over 6,000 five-star ratings and over 2,000 five-star reviews from satisfied customers. âNothing will stick to this carpet,â said one reviewer, adding that âit’s a dream come trueâ for those looking to reduce waste.
“It saved a lot of damage to my rather damaged cookie sheets and allowed me to reuse some that had a non-stick coating that has seen better days,” wrote another. “No degradation, no damage to the silicone, and no mess on my platters!”
If you bake or cook frequently, these non-stick silicone mats are a real game changer. They make cooking vegetables, baking cookies, and cleaning easy. Pick one up from Amazon today.
