8. AIRMAT Perforated Silicone Baking Mat 

There’s a whole lot of talk about pie and tart molds and we have mentioned they can be used with or without a baking mat. While a few of them have special baking mats that line the mold, some of the molds do not have bottoms and you might be wondering what to bake your crusts on top of. 

This is why we created the AIRMAT Perforated Silicone Baking Mat. Available in two sizes 15.75” x 11.8” and 22.8” x 15.75, this silicone mat works perfect for any baking or roasting needs but is even more ideal when paired with the rest of the Air System line.

Use it to bake crisp, delicious cookies, tarts, and more with those perforated holes that we love so much. 

This high-grade aluminum baking sheet is used the same way you would use any other baking sheet. It can be used with or without a baking sheet or mat and will provide you with crispy, fully baked goods every time.
