These Le Chef flexible baking mats are constructed of silicone-coated fiberglass and they can turn any pan into an easy-release, nonstick baking surface. These baking mats can be used for baking or prepping.
This is a fair price for an average product. Of course compared to Matfer or Silpat (which I also own) they lag in looks, quality and performance, but they also priced accordingly and I have no complaints there. Below is a run down as compared against "premium" brands:
LOOKS: aesthetically these are cheaper looking than Silpat. They are cut crooked and are thicker. The coating is more rugged and not even.
QUALITY: they're not as durable, but durable enough. I find that they're not as easily cleaned, and you have to keep up with it because slaking off once will result in semi-permanent stains. They do withhold cleaning with gentle scrubbers like dobie sponge pretty well. They must be stored either flat loosely wrapped. If not, the creases will set in permanently.
PERFORMANCE: this one is a pleasant surprise because by the looks of them I didn't think they'd hold up as good (they have been in regular use for about half a year now). I used them in temperatures of up to 450F and there was no smell. Non-sticking quality is okay (just okay), but because surface is not as smooth as silpat or mafter they will transfer some texture on whatever you're baking on them and will cause some friction - nothing "slides" off, you have to "peel" it off. There was no smell when I first started using them.
VERDICT: if they're on sale, it's a good value, and you will get what you pay for. They're not terrible, but not great either. Just a fair generic product with average performance.
I baked cookies with the Le Chef Silicone baking mats. The cookies slid right off perfectly. I would highly recommend these mats for those who love to cook and don't want their baked goods sticking to the cookie sheet!
The items have not baked a thing since I purchased them. They just lay there. They were described as BAKING MATS. You have to do the baking, or so my wife informs me. Since that enlightenment, the mats have become more useful.
This product is awesome. My husband and I used them daily while cooking. Since using these we have cut down tremendously on products like parchment paper and aluminum foil. So it is worth the money spent because I am saving money and helping the environment at the same time. Anyone that bakes anything in the oven, this is a must have product. Very HAPPY!
