BAKEITFUN BAKING MAT
***My Personal Review***
I LOVE this baking mat :) When they first started making silicone baking items I was not convinced, wouldn't buy them, didn't believe they would hold up in the oven. I never actually tried any silicone baking items until I started doing reviews, and when this came up it sounded so cool and I don't have a baking mat! So I applied, was approved and yesterday decided to use it. I had some pumpkin muffins to make and another review for some silicone baking cups so I combined the two! My daughter who is 7 helped me - I pulled (and I mean PULLED) the mat out of the box. It is VERY sturdy and there is no way that thing slips! I sat it on my cookie sheet, even though you CAN put this mat right on the oven rack, microwave, dishwasher - whatever you want it holds up. But I knew with the baking cups I would drop them so I used the cookie sheet.
I had my daughter put the cups on the little circles on the baking mat - it's great because they are perfectly sized to help you make cookies and know exactly where to put them so they don't run together and how far apart they will be. The mat also has a ruler that runs around the entire edge, so you can use that for different things as well. We got the baking cups on the mat and stuck it in the preheated oven. This item DOES recommend that you only put it in a preheated oven. Now I am one of those people who gets batter all over the pan and normally with the cookie sheets and cupcake pans it takes a lot of scraping to get that burned batter off of the sheet. After the timer went off, we got them out of the oven and I took all the cups off the mat and there was my "leftover burned batter". I though oh great this is going to stick. Nope! I literally flicked my fingernail over it and it slid right off of the mat!!! I was amazed! There were no burn marks on it like you get on metal sheets, and it was in perfect condition. I let it cool, ran it under the water to wash it off and dried it - rolled back up and put it in my drawer :)
There is absolutely nothing that is not great about this mat, and if you have not tried something like this you NEED to because it will change the way you bake! I truly love it and can't wait to use it all the time!
