I got my first set of Silpat mats a year ago and I’m absolutely in love with them. Those who use Silpat will of course know of what I praise. To those who don’t, Silpat is a wonderful stick-free baking mat made of silicone-coated fiberglass. Use it in place of parchment paper on a baking pan for making cookies, rolls, candy, or roasted vegetables. No butter or oil sprays necessary.
Silpat mats are made in France by the De Marle company which makes flexible silicone bake ware. Silpat will withstand temperatures of -40° to 482°F and is microwave safe. The mats are easy to clean; just wipe off with warm soapy water.
You can find Silpat at Sur La Table, Williams Sonoma, and Amazon.com Prices range from $10 to $40 depending on the size of mat.
