I love my Silpat baking mat! (No, this is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to share.)
Cookies are easy to remove. No burning. I’ve even used it in the freezer.
I’ve had my mat for a while now. It seems like I got it for my birthday or Mother’s Day or something like that. I also have some off-brand liners that I like as well.
My Silpat mat came in a nice little box like the one above. I used the box for storing my mats in my cupboard. I didn’t want them to get gouged by cooling racks and roasting pans.
As time went on, my nice little box wore down on one of the edges and separated completely. (Sorry, no picture of the dilapidated box.) No problem. A rubber band worked great to hold it together.
When the rubber band gave up the ghost, I knew it was time for something different. Sure, I could have used another rubber band. However, by this time, another edge was almost worthless.
I remembered that I had an old wax paper box in one of my craft closets. Who knows what I was planning to do with it. I just know it had been sitting there, unused, for quite some time.
After removing the cutting blade, the box was the perfect size for my baking mats!
I did a little happy dance! A free-cycle storage solution! The wax paper box fits nicely in my cupboard, too.
Do you use silicone baking mats? How do you store them?
