"For me, it's a kitchen essential"
21 April 2015
To my mind these silicone baking mats should be as commonplace in the kitchen cupboard as a cake tin, and I think these reviews give an unfair impression. The mats are great for biscuits, especially the kinds that tend to stick hard, e.g. tuiles, as they're very non-stick and can be pealed off the biscuit. I use an old baking sheet underneath, and that works fine. The mat also provides a good baking surface for swiss roll sponges. I agree you're unlikely to have much success rolling up the sponge directly from the mat - but all you need to do is turn it out first onto a tea towel.
