What is a silicone baking mat for?
Similarly one may ask, what is a silicone baking mat used for?
A silicone baking mat is made of high-quality, food-grade silicone and fiberglass, and it is most often used to cover cookie sheets when baking. They are also perfect for baking messy or sticky concoctions because of their non-stick qualities.
Similarly, are silicone baking mats worth it? Silicone mats are heavier and slightly sticky so they adhere to the baking sheet much better. Yes this benefit only applies to those cooking with convection ovens but it is worth noting as parchment flying all over the oven is a serious problem.
Keeping this in view, can you put a silicone baking mat in the oven?
The short answer is just about anything! These handy kitchen mats can go from oven to freezer and can be used to cook, decorate and even do double duty in making crafts. Silicone baking mats are flexible, non stick and can withstand very high heat.
Can I use a silicone mat instead of parchment paper?
Silicone baking mats are reusable alternatives to parchment paper: Pop one into a baking sheet and you instantly have a nonstick baking surface that you can use, wash, and reuse.
