I line my sheets with parchment paper when making cookies, pastries, etc. and then just give the sheets a wipe if something has gone through the paper.

I have an old set of cookie sheets that I use for traying bacon or sausages, cooking chicken wings, etc. I NEVER use the good ones for anything other than baking!

Alix, Golda's Kitchen out of Ontario carries Sil-Pat sheets which work very well. They are expensive, but can be used over and over again. Hope that helps.

Thanks LP, I actually have a sil pat but don't much care for it, mostly because it is awkward to wash. I thought the teflon thing might be different.

I bought them at a cooking supply outlet, which has since gone out of business. However, I think, with some sleuthing, they can be had somewhere on the Internet.

The package I bought had 2 that fit standard cookie sheets, 1 for a 9- x 13-inch pan/sheet, a square one and a couple of 8- or 9-inch round ones for cake pans. I'd have to measure to be exact about the diameter of the round ones. I bought an extra package so I could cut more to fit some of my other odd-sized pans.

I love them and what I like is that I can gently slide the whole sheet from the cookie sheet onto a cooling rack with all the cookies on it. Within minutes my sheet can be cooled for more cookie dough and the Teflon replaced. Sure makes baking cookies a lot easier.

I don't care for Silpat. I think it's too bulky...and expensive. But, that's me.

I wash mine every time. I rarely foil, but even if I do they still get a wash.

Funny thing about the Sil-pat. I said they worked well, but I only used them at school and have never had the desire to buy them....I think mostly because of the price. In catering and at camp we used parchment sheets and that's what I have used ever since.

Katie, the teflon does sound interesting. I may just do some internet sleuthing myself!

Teflon pan liners

Alix, Laurie, anyone else...

I did some Internet searching and came up with these, which look almost identical to what I have and the price is in line with what mine were.

I'm thinking about getting a package to cut some to fit some of my smaller and more unusually-shaped bakeware.

My silicone mats aren't silpat brand but the same idea. I got a 1/2 sheet pan, silicone mat, a wire rack that fit inside the pan and plastic lid to cover pan - the whole 4 piece combo cost $19.99. Not a bad deal. I love them. I got 2. I use the mat under my plastic pastry sheet (when rolling out dough or kneading bread), bowls (while mixing or plastic chopping boards to keep them from slipping.
