I have just used the sheet for the first time and greased the sheet using melted butter and a brush which worked brilliantly. As it was my first attempt at making a swiss roll I was well impressed.

Returned this product to store. It buckled in the oven and the mix then cooked unevenly . Shame- as its a good idea. Sorry Lakeland ! back to the drawing board

baking flexi sheet”
I bought the flexi sheet for rolling Swiss roll/roulade, and went on to look at the video, as on the packaging it says you can roll your Swiss roll up on it...I was hoping the video would show this being done, but it doesn't and I think this would be helpful. Thank you.

This tray is a complete disaster for meringue roulades. I used my standard tried and tested recipe this morning for my Christmas guests, quite excited at using this new tray. The results were an uneven mess impossible to roll. I won't be using it again! Back to the old tins..

A handy baking tray”
After a 1st try at making a Swiss roll which wasn't great (not the right proportions as the tray is bigger than my previous one) I tried again. This time I lightly greased the tray with butter and after cooking I put the baking tray upside down on a damp cloth which had been sprinkled with sugar (as I used to do with my old tray). The sponge cake came off in a single piece without any problems when I "pealed off" the baking tray (leaving the cake on the cloth). I turned the whole thing again so the cake was in the tray & covered with filling. It was easily rolled since the tray is flexible.

I have just used this as a practice in the run up to Christmas. I buttered the sheet etc which did help. My concern was that the sheet was full with my sponge mixture but it does not seem deep enough to create a fluffy Swiss roll. The sheet needs to be deeper. A shame as I was looking forward to making my first Swiss roll. Not up to the usual Lakeland standard.

PERFECT ROLL every time”
by Donals Duck
I am so pleased with this product : I just made 3 logs and they came out perfect every time! I just greased the sides of the tin, used a parchement sheet on the bottom of the mold (for easier rolling) : 6 minutes at 180°C and I got a even surface perfect coloration biscuit!

I am so sorry to note that the Flexi-sheet is unavailable. I already have one and just love it - have never had a problem with it. Have never greased it before use. I was planning on buying a couple for over seas friends....sad to say I can't now.

Worked for me.”
Having read the packaging, I lightly greased the sheet, put it on an upturned metal baking tray for stability and used it to make a 4 egg, 100g sugar, 100g s.r.flour swiss roll which came out perfectly - just filling the sheet. I eased the cake from the sides before rolling up and the rolling went well too. The baked top side was in the centre of the roll, I could have turned it out first to have this on the outside as is traditional. Success. Will use for meringues, macarons etc. too

Silicone Baking flexi Sheet”
by Mrs Russell
I only bought this last week and I now see that it is unavailable. I fully understand why as it is no good whatsoever for a merangue roulade - not nearly deep enough and too flimsy. I shall revert back to my tin one lined with grease proof paper.

My first try”
by Mrs Hilton
Not a success first time. I did grease the sheet as advised but it still stuck in places and performed just the way other reviewers have reported. Fortunately I have a metal Swiss roll tray so pressed that into use to balance the VERY FLEXI sheet on, hard to handle without. I think what I will do is bake my Swiss roll in my tin and turn it out onto the flexi sheet instead of baking parchment and see how that works. I did reduce the baking time to 7 mins on 180c and it was just right. However the edges were very crisp and had to be cut. Would 'spray and release' help?

Enjoyed using this item today for the first time easy to use”
easy to use and clean up, Made a nice jam and cream Swiss roll, Perfect results in first time of using, Will buy this item again as a small gift, Printed some recipes off for next time, I would recommend this item and buy as small Christmas gifts. For best result use a larger baking try. turned out very easy and made baking And rolling up very easy on sugared Parchment for better results.

This is the only Lakeland product which I can honestly say that I loathe. You will need a baking tray the EXACT measurements of this flimsy tray. Do not try without an EXACT tray to place under the silicone sheet. I wish this could have been noted in the ad for this "easy to use" product because it is not possible to use it without. My product will never be used again. I hate it.

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry to hear you didn't find the tray suitable and we'll be in touch shortly to help. As silicone is flexible we'd always recommend placing it on a baking tray for added stability when taking in and out of the oven. I use a larger oven tray below mine and find it helps.

I was so excited when I bought the 'non stick' silicone tray to make my first ever roulade especially as I managed to bag a bargain at £3.99 instead of the usual £8.49. However I was left frustrated and disappointed when firstly the tray is too big and shallow leaving a very thin sponge and secondly because the tray was not no stick at all even though I had greased it with butter. I shall definitely not be using this item again as it is just not practical. This is the first time I have ever been let down by one of your products.

Actually I thought it was great....”
Used this for the first time today - brushed it with oil and then dusted it with a little flour and sugar before adding the sponge mixture and it came out of the 'tin' really well. Yes, the tin is shallow but I prefer a slightly thinner sponge so the filling/sponge is a better ratio. It was a bargain for £4 and I'm already planning the other rolls I'm going to make...

Swiss roll disaster”
I used to use an old tin baking tray and every swiss roll I made turned out perfect but I thought I should update the equipment I used so bought this. I've tried this tray 3 times now and every one has been a failure. The tray is too large and isn't deep enough. So disappointed.

room for improvement”
First the baking sheet is too big for our biggest tin and too floppy to use without a tin. Cookies do glide off if you spray it first!

I wish I had read the reviews before buying this I could have saved myself some money! I've tried 3 times to make a swiss roll with this tray and all were a disaster. The tray is too big and shallow so there's no way to make a sponge you can roll, as soon as you try it just splits. I'll go back to my previous tray which has never let me down.

practice makes perfect”
I bought this flexi- sheet some time ago and the first couple of uses to make a swiss roll proved frustrating as the cake stuck to the un - greased sheet quite badly. I tried a different recipe one with a little butter in to see if this would help but the cake still didn't come out clean. The solution to my baking dilemma was to use a little of the cake release which i got from Lakeland on the base and sides the cake came out perfectly !! I also use the sheet for icing and chocolate piped shapes which is perfect !!
