We use them on our induction stove. The pots and pans heat just as fast but they keep residue off the stove and keep the stove clean.

These are a reusable, superior substitute to parchment paper, which is just paper impregnated with silicone. This is a sheet of silicone with fiberglass strands to help hold it together.

They are primarily used for baking things like cookies, biscuits, croissants, pastries, etc. that are delicate and you don't want to stick to the pan. However, they can also be used for resting chocolate or sugar that you need to set, as it will release easily (think candied apples or chocolate-dipped strawberries). Pile up a couple tablespoons of grated Parmigiano Reggiano, bake at 375°F until brown and crisp, let cool, and lift with a small spatula; boom, cheese crisps.

I still use parchment for high heat applications. These can go pretty high, but if I'm doing crusty bread, I think parchment is a better choice. And obviously for cases where you need to shape it, like a cheesecake, go with parchment.

Also, these are not hard to clean at all. Since nothing sticks, you could pretty much just rinse them with hot water (remember, water does the cleaning, soap just lowers the surface tension). However, it's easy enough to leave these on the pan or throw them in the bottom of the empty sink, swipe on a bit of soap, rinse well, then lay over the draining rack or dry flat on a towel. I'm not sure what people mean about things caking up on them; I've yet to have that happen with these or my Silpat, and I use them frequently. I even have one that fits in my toaster oven.

Don't know what kind of mats the "complainers" here are speaking of but almost any silicone baking mats like these are totally worth it.

I been making my own bread and pizza doughs for 10 years. Often bake two or three loads of bread a week. I've bought bread from the store 1 time the last 10 years.

I bought 1 off brand at Aldi's 10 years ago. Totally abused it for the 1st 2 or 3 years. It's got knife marks all over it(didn't know any better, didn't respect it). Still totally usable to this day.

I've since bought more, mainly for different sizes and grid patterns to make it easier to space things like rolls and cookies.

These type things never need more than a wipe off at minimum. Of course one can go all out cleaning if desired but they won't look any different. Nothing in the way of breads, cookies, etc, stick to these things.

There are hundreds of varied brands, types, sizes at Amazon. Off and on for no more than the price here. I paid the same price as here for a patterned pair of the same size. Even less for a 3 piece set of 1 of the size here and 2, 9" x 12 mats. All patterned.

I imagine those that "don't get it" would rather use parchment paper or don't really do much baking. Or just like scrubbing pans.
I'm jealous you had an aldi 10 years ago. Didn't know they existed till about 3 years ago.

Works perfect for covering the baked chicken in the glass bake ware. Normally use aluminum to cover the bake ware. Works great, cleaning is not an issue.

Anyone know if these can be effectively cut smaller? For use in a toaster oven sized electric oven?

I know aldi has been in other countries for a long time, but here in the states they didn't start rapid growth till very recently. The central Fl area just started getting them only like 5 years ago.

Cutting is probably ok. May shorten the life some as the reinforcing fibers may be more exposed.

Just do a search on Amazon for "9 x 12 silicone baking mat" I'm sure Amazon sells thousands of these things of all shapes, sizes, and sets. Probably why they started selling their own brand and pushing them to the top of the searches.

Here is a set of 9 x 12's that will probably fit many toaster ovens. Bought a set of 3 about a year ago for less than $8. (Sorry for the url. Don't know how to link on mobile). But just do some searches for the size you need. They come in and out of stock often.
