I 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.
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!
