Thanksgiving is almost here, and if you are like us, you are making a list of all the mouthwatering foods you will be serving. There are so many items that we will be cooking on a baking sheet, and one of those items is going to be fresh baked rolls.
If you have ever baked fresh bread, you will know that you must grease the pan before you let the dough rise, or you are going to end up with the bread sticking to the pan. With all the bread that we bake, several batches a week, that is a lot of cooking spray that we go through to keep the bread from sticking to the pans. We just baked a batch of fresh rolls, and had fresh baked pizza yesterday, but we used NO cooking spray and the bread did not stick to the pan. How is that possible? We used our new Frazoni Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat.
The Frazoni Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat is perfectly sized (11 1/32" x 16 17/32" [28x42cm]) to fit a standard US half size baking sheet (18" x 13") which is the typical size of cookie sheet or jelly roll pan that most people have. It does have beveled corners that make placement and removal from baking sheets easier. It is practical and has just enough tack that it won't slip around on your baking pan.
Cook healthier and bake better since you don't need to add extra fats like cooking spray just to keep your food from sticking to the pan. The Frazoni baking mat will improve the results of your cooking because it distributes heat evenly across the pan. This will also keep your food from burning. Silicone is an inert material and is BPA free, which means that the Frazoni mat will never leave any smell or taste in your food. It will never deform or curl even if you roll it up for storage.
Do you use parchment paper instead of cooking spray? I know for a fact that it's not an inexpensive option to keep using. Just buying one of these will save you so much money in the long run. Use foil? Well, foil sticks and you do have to use a cooking spray as well. When cooking with the Frazoni mat, you will never need to use parchment paper, foil, or cooking spray.
Cleanup is never a problem. With the silicone non-stick mat, all you need to do is wash it in the dishwasher or hand wash with soap, water, and a soft sponge. Let it air dry. You can store it rolled up, flat, or right inside the baking pan ready for your next cooking adventure. If properly used, the Frazooni mat will last 2000 times or more.
Here are the rolls that my son made last night. He just laid the rolls on the clean mat with no cooking spray, let them rise, then popped them into the oven at 350˚F degrees. (The mat can withstand temperatures if -40˚F to 480˚F [-40˚C to 250˚C].)
After about 20 minutes, they came out of the over looking perfect. Of course my son made super soft bread as he usually does.
Just an extra side note: You can use this mat in the microwave as well, and since it can withstand very cold temperatures, you can use it in the freezer. Also - never cut anything on this mat as it is not a cutting board! About the only things that I was disappointed with was that the mat did not come in a box for storage.
