Tovolo Baking Mat

Have you ever lovingly and carefully cooked something only to have the final product ruined by the digging and scraping it takes to remove it from the pan? Think of every cookie, meringue, bean burger and fruit leather you’ve made and imagine yourself being able to remove each without leaving so much as a trace of it behind. Luckily, that’s exactly what the Tovolo Baking Mat manages to do every single time.

The nonstick, reusable mat is BPA-free, dishwasher safe and can be cut to fit the exact size of your pans. While users with square cookie sheets will find Tovolo nearly perfect to size out of the packaging, those with rectangular cookie sheets will lose precious inches from the largest size as they cut to fit the mat to the surface.

This reusable baking mat does not create or accumulate a greasy residue with use as other mats tend to do. It is easy to wash and dries relatively quickly. While some may find the whimsical cupcake print on the mat appealing, others may not find it to their taste. However, that print does allow for spacing and sizing references when placing cookie or meringue dough on the mat.

This product even goes beyond baking! It works well for dehydrating fruit leathers, roasting with minimal fat (and can withstand heat up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit) and rolling out dough on a counter.

In particular, those who work with recipe development or food photography may find the Tovolo useful since the mat allows for perfect removal of the final product after baking or freezing.
