Simply Essentials Silicone Baking Mat and Pan Set Review & #Giveaway (ends 4/05)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

My husband and I have been slowly trying to replace both the old appliances that came with our house when we bought it, and the old cookware we each brought into our marriage. A lot of the cookware I have/had was handed down to me when I first moved out on my own twenty years ago. Some of it belonged to my grandma, who passed away when I was eight (nearly thirty years ago). The cookie sheets I brought into our marriage were old, dented, and covered in scratches from years of cooking pizza on them and then cutting it right on the sheet. Even with cooking spray, food often stuck to the pans.

20140327_200420I was given the chance to try out the Simply Essentials Baking Mat and Baking Pan set from Castle Rock Essential Products, Inc. This company sells a wide variety of products through the Castle Rock Essential Products Amazon Storefront, including baby products, gardening products, DVDs, pet products, and, of course, cooking products.

I was really impressed with the Simply Essentials Baking Mat and baking pan set. The pan itself is an 18 x 13 inch commercial grade baking pan with high edges, and is much thicker and sturdier feeling the cheap pans I already had. The silicone mat, described as being similar to a silpat baking mat, is BPA safe and is made of glass weave and food grade silicone.

My husband loves tilapia, but baking it leaves a really sticky greasy mess that requires a lot of scrubbing to get the pan clean. We decided to try out our new pan and baking mat the next time we made tilapia – using no cooking spray on the mat. You can see in the picture that after baking, there was in fact a sticky mess on the mat. However, the tilapia slid right off, even though we put the fish right on the mat with no spray or oil.

One item that we have yet to purchase is a dishwasher, so we still do our dishes the old-fashioned way – by hand. And we all know that if you let pans sit out for a while after cooking on them, the food gets stuck on and you have to soak them to get them clean. So to really test the mat’s claim of being easy to clean, I let it sit for several hours. I figured I’d have to scrub it a bit to get the grease-soaked crumbs loose from it, but it actually came completely clean as soon as I ran it under hot water, with no scrubbing at all! All I had to do was wipe it down with a soapy sponge to clean the grease off, but nothing stuck to it. And the pan underneath was spotless, so also required no effort to clean.

You can purchase this pan and baking mat set on Amazon currently for just $18.99 (at the time of this posting); the regular list price is $34.99, and worth every penny just in the time you’ll save not having to scrub your pan every time you bake something! I plan on making cookies this week, and look forward to not having to scrub melted chocolate chips off the pan!
