What is a Baking Mat?
If you’ve ever wished for a reusable version of parchment paper, then you need to invest in a durable baking mat. You can even find specialty baking mats, such as ones with guide markups for cookies, macarons, donuts, and more. These mats have the ideal shape and size printed onto the surface of the mat for you to use as a guide for perfectly identical portioning of your batter each time. Beginner and professional bakers alike can agree that this certainly takes the hassle and anxiety out of ensuring even division of your batter every time.
How to Use a Silicone Baking Mat
Baking mats are used in the same way parchment paper is and more! Their durability and resistance allows them to be used anywhere from the freezer to the oven and the other way around without tearing or deforming. You simply lay the baking mat onto your baking tray and add whatever it is you will be cooking on top.
How to Clean Baking Mats
Arguably the best part about baking mats is their ability to be reused. You don’t need to worry about running out of your roll of parchment paper any more, as long as you have a clean baking mat ready in your drawer for the next time. How do you clean a baking mat though? It’s recommended to soak them in warm water if there is significant residue left on it after baking. Afterwards, scrubbing with soap and leaving it to dry. Depending on how dirty the mat is, you may want to give it a gentle scrubbing with vinegar or lemon juice to ensure grease and other substances are not stuck between the intricate layers of the material.
What is a Baking Sheet?
In the moment, it may be possible to confuse baking mats and baking sheets with one another, but they are completely different items. A baking sheet is also referred to as a baking pan and is the flat tray pan used in a variety of baking from sweet to savory. Baking sheets can be rimmed or entirely rimless (referred to as a cookie sheet) and are must-haves in the kitchen. Transfer your baked goods straight into a serving platter with a baking sheet rimless on one, or all, sides of the pan with ease.
