Silpat is a truly remarkable item. It has quickly become a staple in the professional kitchen and home kitchen alike. This smaller size Silpat will fit on a baking tray in larger size toaster ovens. Perfect for a small batch of cookies, buns and other treats. Silpat is effective in temperatures from 40 degrees F to 480 degrees F. Nothing sticks to it except it's reputation. Made of FDA approved food grade silicone.
Use a Silpat mat just once, and you'll be hooked. Forget messy buttering or greasing. Simply lay the mat on any baking sheet or pan, place your cookies, scones, open-face cheese sandwiches, and more on top, and slip the pan into the oven. When your cookies are done, they slide right off with a spatula. Made in France of fiberglass and silicone, tough Silpat baking mats are FDA, NSF, and Kosher certified, and are oven-safe to 480 degrees F. Each mat should last 2,000 to 3,000 times, depending on use and care. To clean, wipe with hot, soapy water and lay flat or hang to dry. Store the mats flat in a drawer or rolled and secured with a rubber band.
This is the smallest of the Silpat mats, measuring just 8-1/4 by 11-3/4, about the size of a sheet of paper. As a result, it's perfect for use in a toaster oven or for small batches of baked goods in a conventional oven. The mat is also safe to use in a microwave or freezer. Give your favorite baker a silicone Silpat mat, and they'll thank you for the revelation. --Ann Bieri
