What to consider when choosing a silicone baking mat
Now that you have seen some of the more popular silicone baking mats available on the market today, here are a few features to consider when shopping for a mat of your own.
Most silicone baking mats include fiber glass in their construction, so you should not cut them to size. After all, you do not want fiber glass to get into your food. Luckily, there are many sizes available, and usually they are standardized to typical baking sheet sizing. You can also find sets that include a variety of sizes.
Some silicone baking mats have markings and guides to help you ensure your baked goods are the appropriate size. This can be very handy so you do not have to guess at the sizing.
Silicone baking mat FAQs
How should I use a silicone baking mat?
You can use the mat in two ways – as a pan liner or as a work surface. To use the mat as a pan liner, lay the mat on your baking sheet, put your baked goods on top, and then pop it in the oven. Because the mat is non-stick, your baked goods will slide off easily when they are done. To use the mat as a work surface, simply lay it on the countertop and knead your bread/roll out your dough on top of it. This will protect your countertop and save flour in the process.
Are silicone baking mats safe?
These mats are safe for baking up to their indicated temperature. Usually this temperature is just over 400 degrees Fahrenheit but some mats are temperature safe up to 480 degrees F. They can also be put in the freezer.
Try to look for a mat that is made entirely of silicone (and fiber glass) and does not contain fillers as these can contain toxins that may be released when the mat is heating or cooling.
What is better – a silicone baking mat or parchment paper?
Both are great for baking and cooking, but parchment paper can only be used once and then thrown away. Silicone baking mats can be reused over and over again. As a result, these mats are good for the environment and can help you save money.
