I just snagged the last 2 silicone pan liners (9in round) at Crate and Barrel.  A set of (2) was on sale for $5.95 (regularly $9.95 for a set).

Anyone tried these?  I’m hoping the work out OK, ‘cuz parchment is a bit of a pain to cut each time.

I’m going to end up trimming them, because they don’t quite fit in my 9in pans (which stack for storage, so they’re tapered slightly, rather than the “proper” straight-sided pans).

I wish they had another set, so I could get them for my 6in pans, too.

Might have to do some baking to try ‘em out smile

I have some 8” ones that I use for my flourless chocolate cake; they work great, but when they’re greasy, they’re slippery and because I’m so used to tossing the parchment circles, I’ve had to stop myself a few times from just pitching the liner inadvertently!

I’ve only used it with the flourless cake, not my regular ones (I don’t use parchment on my regular cakes but I do with the carrot cake so it comes out cleanly).  I think you can cut these to fit if you were to find another set, you can cut it down to fit your 6” pans….

There is also a product out there called super parchment, I think (I’ll check when I get home).It’s a reusable nonstick sheet that fills an 11x17 jellyroll pan nicely with a little turn up on the long sides. It’s very thin, so has negligible effect on baking times. You can cut it to size. I’ve gone nuts with it. I have pieces for the bottom of loaf pans, 9” rounds, 6” rounds, 1/4 sheet pan, and the jelly roll pan. With the appropriate shapes and sizes ready to go, I’m not tempted to skip the step of lining with parchment. If you made your 6” rounds from this, you’d have a bunch left over to play with.

It’s also great for lining a bar cookie pan. Lift out the sheet, slide the baking off. Cut the bars without having to pry out the first one.  And you can bake focaccia on it with just a film of oil. The bottom still browns, but tihe bread slides right off. Um. I’m not on their payroll.

Cathy, I know exactly what you are talking about and yes it is called super parchment. I line my cake pans with them too. So convenient!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rozanne- Thank you for the confirmation on the name, and the convenience.

It turns out that my current batch is called Regency Reusable Cookie Sheet Liners, but it seems to be the same sort of stuff. I haven’t gotten around to cutting it to replace my worn pieces (eventually they start to split along the weave) but I feel more secure having it in the cupboard smile

Hi Dan

I use silicone liners all the time with Rose’s recipes and they release beautifully. I wash them with soapy water when I wash the pan or in the dishwasher. They’re easily trimmed to size for a perfect fit. A great time saver. No more parchment.

I bought 8” and 9” silicone liners, I’ve used them a few times with Rose’s All Occasion cake, and I’ve been disappointed each time - the liners do not pull away cleanly, so the bottom of the cake ends up pocked where cake has pulled away with the liner.  I prefer parchment circles.  Am I mising something with the silicone liners?

Maybe brands vary in performance? The ones I have are called “Sili Gourmet” from William Bounds Ltd in California. Bought them here in Sydney, Australia and they are excellent - always release.

Since Geejay mentioned washing cake pan liners in the dishwasher, I thought I’d share that I heard a chef on TV mention that he washes his Silpat liners in the dishwasher.  I’ve been washing mine by hand for years, but I put the last one in the dishwasher and it came out perfectly clean and dry.  I will do that from now on.

I use the dishwasher too.  If you have a dishwasher safe cooling rack, it works well to load the rack and then lay the silpat against it.  That way, the silpat has something to lean against as it washes.

Thanks Matthew.  I propped my between plates, but I like your idea a lot.

MrsM: are you greasing the liners before you use them? Even though they are silicone, you still have to grease them. It’s the same as if you were using silicone baking molds; they release beautifully—but they have to be greased to perform well!
