Baking and pastry mats

If you’re a weekly baker, chances are you go through rolls of baking paper in the kitchen just to keep surfaces clean. With a silicone baking mat, not only will you keep your workspace neat and tidy, but you can also reuse it, again and again.

The different uses of a non-stick baking mat

A non-stick baking mat has multiple uses, but the main ones include:

  1. Replacing disposable parchment paper

  2. Protecting your kitchen countertop while rolling or kneading dough

  3. Keeping your bakeware clean

  4. Can be placed on a baking tray in the oven to heat up food

  5. Can cover baking goods in the oven to ensure they rise evenly

Silicone baking mat vs parchment paper - what’s the difference?

Silicone pastry mats are reusable alternatives in comparison to single use parchment paper. They both share similar benefits including being oven safe and keeping baking sheets clean, but silicone pastry mats have a better construction to handle hot or sticky mixtures without the assistance of oils. Another advantage of silicone pastry mats is that they can protect your kitchen countertop when kneading, rolling or cutting dough. Silicone is a natural non-stick material and its flexible construction makes it easy to clean and maintain. Parchment paper can be customised to better fit baking pans but it’s not as environmentally friendly as a silicone baking mat which can be used again and again.

Considerations when buying a reusable pastry mat

  • Size Make sure you measure your baking pans to ensure the silicone pastry mat will comfortably fit. At Kitchen Warehouse we sell a variety of sizes to make sure the right one fits your bakeware.

  • Temperature It is important to always check the temperature resistance before using your silicone pastry mat in the oven. If the temperature is too high for the mat, it could melt.

  • Food safety Always make sure that the silicone pastry mat is BPA-free or FDA approved for reassurance in the kitchen.

  • Cleaning Read the care instructions. Some silicone pastry mats will be dishwasher safe, however, it is recommended to hand wash them in warm soapy water.

  • Design Are you after a silicone pastry mat just as a parchment paper substitute or would a mat with measurements and information be a better fit for your kitchen?

FAQs:

What is the difference between a silicone pastry mat and a silicone baking mat?
A silicone pastry mat is primarily used for preparing and shaping dough, rather than for baking in an oven. In comparison, a silicone baking mat will have oven safe properties which will allow it to be used in the bottom of baking trays in the oven safely.

What are some of the benefits of using a silicone baking or pastry mat?
Using a food grade silicone baking or pastry mat will give you similar results to using parchment paper, as both can be used in the oven as well as both having non-stick properties. A silicone mat will save you from using single use parchment paper as you can use it repeatedly and it is environmentally friendly.
