You may have been very frustrated by candy making in the past because the hot sugar would stick to anything that wasn't caked in non-stick spray. Fear no more, as this slippery wonder is a great working surface for kneading it while it's still hot or after it has cooled. If you want to keep it malleable for a longer period of time, set up a small heat lamp over the work surface.
What about cookies? I was shocked with how well they baked. Needless to say, nothing sticks (I was even able to just pick the sheet up and slide them onto a plate), but the surface also helped for even heating of the bottoms in our wonky oven that normally burns them. This was the most even browning I've ever seen, and required less effort than normal. It makes me much less nervous about putting baked goods into the oven. The downside is that cookies that rely on an ungreased cookie sheet to maintain proper form will spread on these sheets in a manner similar to a baking sheet sprayed with Pam. Fortunately, those cookies are typically laden with butter and do not stick anyway.
A bonus feature is that you can place this on a cookie sheet underneath a pie that might boil over in the oven. This can save hours of cleanup for those messy pastries.
Then comes the cleaning of the mat.Read more ›
My cookies slide off easily, so easily that I don't even have to hold down the cookie sheet! I also have used it when baking pies and cobblers, since they tend to boil over and make a mess. Recently I made a cherry cobbler and put this sheet between the cobbler and the baking sheet - and after the cobbler was done the matfer was a mess (but my baking sheet was pristine!). I ran a little water over the matfer, all the cherry goo came off with ease! I didn't even have to scrub!
Another bonus is how easy these are to store. I just roll mine up and they fit neatly in a drawer. I bought two for myself, and I also bought a half dozen more that I am giving away for Christmas this year. They are AMAZING sheets, I highly recommend them to anyone! Well worth the cost - one of the greatest kitchen investments you'll ever make!
After using both a Silpat and an Exopat for baking, I would say that they both perform equally well as far as ease of removing cookies, bread, pastries, etc. from the surface. However, I think that the Silpat is slightly easier to clean. After an equal number of uses, the Silpat was still pristine, whereas the Exopat had some discolorations and small spots that were hard to remove. It's also my impression that the Silpat is slightly heavier and of higher quality construction.
That said, I think the Exopat, at half the price as the Silpat, is the better buy. The Exopat's performance is still amazing and it provides a non-stick surface that's far superior to any standard baking sheet.

I purchased this for a family member more than 10 years ago. She bakes cookies constantly and tells me the mats are still useful even after all these years.Published 3 months ago by Maui Wahine
Makes for easy clean up, and really does work well. I use it a lot. Actually, I have several and keep the ones for savory things separate from the ones for sweet things. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Jessica
