silicone reusable baking mats

Rather than use disposable parchment paper (often coated with chemicals) or wasteful aluminium foil, invest in a silicone baking mat. Silicone is made partly with fossil fuels (along with sand) but lasts for years, is food-safe and can be recycled at end of use (rather than being binned to break down into microplastics). Silicone is also very tough, so ideal for baking or freezing.

Wafe silicone baking mats are sold as a kit of 2 large and 1 small mats, and you also receive a silicone band for easy storage and a silicone mini-oven glove. Great also to use as a non-slip surface for preparing food, the mats are heat-resistant to 260°C. Avoid contact with flames, heating elements and sharp objects – use with wooden utensils.

Before cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many human foods are unsafe around animal friends).
