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.

Personally, I hate washing these things. They are big and slimy and hard to wash. I would rather wash a pan.

I got these (same deal I think) a couple weeks ago. As far as I can tell, they're just as good as the "name brand" ones. No complaints.

I've been using these for years alongside Silpat name brand ones. No significant difference that I can tell. Great deal.

As an alternative to using oil on a baking pan -- stuff will cake onto this mats instead so you end up using oil on them anyway so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I suppose they are a bit easier to wash.

The idea is that you would bake something (e.g. cookies) with these on top of the cookie sheet. Then you don't have to clean the cookie sheet.

My question is how do you clean these things? Because they're not rigid, they're hard to scrub and while they're dishwasher safe, they don't exactly hold their shape in the dishwasher. Personally, while my wife uses them, I don't because I find them to be harder to clean than the baking sheet.

That was my thinking. Seems like parchment paper is still the easiest way to go

I have these and use them often. I use them for baking flatbread and a few other baked goodies like cookies. I don't use any nonstick stuff such as oils or sprays, and everything just slides right off (Minus the super cheesy flatbread I make, sometimes it sticks a tiny bit but never enough to be a huge issue). I assume that is their purpose tbh, eliminating the need for oils etc.

As far as cleaning, I usually just leave them flat in a regular metal baking sheet and wash them off like that.

People are funny for complaining about washing these things. If you can' figure out how to wash it then you probably don't need it, it's not rocket science.
