Silicone baking mats

I’ve fallen for silicone baking mats in a big way, such a big way that, little by little, I’ve outfitted each of my (many) baking sheets with its own mat; I store my baking sheets with their mats in place. Silicone baking mats are reliably nonstick, easy to clean (just wipe them down or wash them with soapy water), happy to withstand heat up to about 475 degrees F, and reusable a couple or three thousand times. I bake almost everything on silicone mats, and I use a mat-lined baking sheet under anything that I think has even the slightest chance of bubbling over in the oven — a precaution that has saved me much scrub time.
