I have had tons of silicone mats in the past and all I can say is this is the best one ever. This is not only a great size but the thickness of the mat is very remarkable. This mat doesn't get all tangled up when trying to lay it flat, it is sturdy. You can do all the prep on it and then put it right in the oven. This is very easy to clean as well and I love the fact that you can throw it in the dishwasher. And the size is perfect. This is a must have for any baker.
