You have to make adjustments, either in time and/or temp, when changing pan
materials in baking - silicone, ceramincs, pottery, dark gray metal, dull matte-finish silvery aluminum, shiny aluminum, glass, cast iron, ceramic coated cast iron, etc. They all have different properties of heat absorption, retention or reflection. They also make a difference in browning.
As for the mats
... I don't generally change anything. I do, however, notice that the bottoms do not brown as much as when using a greased pan or parchment paper.
