Silicone Baking Paper is so versatile and useful, for fuss-free simple cooking, there’s no turning back. Here our top 5 benefits for silicone baking paper.
Silicone Baking Sheets are the solution to Cooking perfect roast vegetables every time
The healthiest and best way to roast vegetables is by far on a Silicone Baking Mat. Summer is just around the corner – cue: the season of roast veggie salads and healthy eating. It’s also when you want to spend maximum amount of time outside and as little time as possible in the kitchen. The solution: Silicone Baking Mat! Simply place your freshly cut vegetables straight onto the silicone baking pad or silicone baking sheet, sprinkle with a little oil, spice to your liking and pop in the oven. Because of the silicone mats non-stick property, it will reduce the amount of oil you need on your baking.... making a much healthier and better cooked snack! It also means you can peel the cooked veggies off so easily – no mess! We recommend roasting vegetables on our silicone baking mat as it has a fiberglass base surrounded in platinum silicone, giving it a high heat retention. It’s the perfect size for lining a baking tray and will speed up the time for your roast veggie cooking. Or alternatively, use the silicone baking sheets, they are malleable and extremely versatile!
Silicone: So Easy to Clean and your reusable alternative to baking paper
Did we mention how fuss-free silicone baking paper is? Because it is non-stick, there will hardly be any trace of the cooking you have just done - it is so easy to clean, simply hold it under the tap, wipe it down with a bit of dish-washing liquid, and voila – a clean baking mat! Or pop it in the dishwasher – because of silicone’s high temperature tolerance, there’s no stress about the silicone baking paper melting! Simply fold it in half and place over the racks in your dishwasher.
Silicone Baking Paper can be used up to 2000 times. That’s a lot of baking! And that’s many meters of baking paper, and a lot of landfill. Single-use baking paper cannot be composted or recycled, due to its thin coating of silicone, and while it’s non-toxic to your food, it does contain many toxic components that will not decompose. Not only are you helping save the planet by using reusable silicone baking paper, but you will also save money too – on average you spend about $10 on 50 meters of baking paper, think of how much money you will save when buying 2x Silicone Baking Sheets at $27!

You can cook just about anything on your silicone mat: cookies, cake, pizza, meat, fish, vegetables, grill toasties… the options are endless. Use silicone baking paper instead of parchment paper to line a cake tin, use it for your healthy raw food cooking: place your delicious concoctions on the silicone paper and pop in the freezer! Roasting vegetables, of course! Decorative cake drizzles: drizzle icing on the silicone pad and pop in the fridge or freezer to cool – professional looking cakes anyone?! What about a loaf of crusty home-made bread? Yes, it can do that too! And you can also use it to roll out your bread or cookie dough for non-stick mess free kitchen!
No more burnt baking with reusable baking paper
Silicone is a good heat insulator, it has a high temperature tolerance which means less potential of burning or browning, and your food won’t stick… aah so satisfying! The silicone baking sheet won’t stick to the pan underneath either – so many less dishes = so much more time for the good things in life! As mentioned previously, for faster cooking, use the silicone baking pad, which contains the fiberglass base which retains heat, and your veggies still don’t stick or burn!
Silicone Food Covers are also a fantastic baking alternative - they can be used for under food for grilling, or in a sandwich press for toasties that don't stick.
We love silicone and once you make the change we know you will too!
