Katie, which is the one you have?

How to clean Silpat baking mats?

Don't take this the wrong way, my wife is a brilliant woman and I love her to pieces, but occasionally she doesn't reason things out before acting. She bought a glass cutting board that I will only let her use as a trivet, much to her chagrin.

Hm. Not sure what you'd do with one inch Silpat strips. Form into rings for Egg McMuffins?

Sewing shops sell "self-healing" mats for quilting. I think they're also silicone. Perhaps your wife thought they were the same thing...

Glass cutting boards are great for working with bread dough.

First, let me say that I've had my mats for nearly 20 years and purchased them at a kitchen goods store. They came in a package of assorted common square/rectangle sizes (8x8, 9x13), several round (9-in, 8-in), a couple cookie sheet sizes and one rather large rectangular one.

Can't remember how much I paid for them, but I don't think they broke the bank. I liked them so much I bought a set for my daughter. She loves them.

Sadly, I haven't been able to find them again, even on the Internet. However, one of Glenn's daughters gave me a set of these one year for Christmas. They seem to be the same thing I already have, but the beauty is that it gave me the option of cutting the sizes I needed for other cookware/bakeware. Great stuff.

What brand of baking mat do you have Kate H?

I too purchased the Silpat brand made in France way back when, umm, I think it was like 1990...
anywhos, add me to the list of "top rack of the dishwasher"... I do not care for that sticky-icky-gunky feel, I could SEE where the cookies had sat on the mat even after I cleaned it nicely with a mild detergent and soft sponge, ACK!

Thanks Katie. I need to measure my baking sheets and see what size mats I need. I'd like to get a small one for my toaster oven tray. Amazon has this set that I'm considering:

I definitely need a package of them. I am always having to buy the aluminum disposable ones. I hate to spray the bottom as that is where the heating element is.

Thatís exactly what happened to me. The Silpat mat was sticky and icky even after cleaning it. I gave mine a good scrub with Bon Ami tonight. I'll see how it feels after it dries.
