Jennifer Garner's 'Pretend Cooking Show' has entertained us for the past few years. Since the pandemic, the American actress has invited her Instagram followers into her kitchen to have some fun with cooking and baking, and we've certainly picked up a few tricks along the way. But this time, her Silpat baker’s mat caught our attention. 

It is no surprise to anyone that investing in the right kitchen tools, gadgets, and pantry staples can make baking a piece of cake. A silicone baking mat might not be high on your priority list, but it should be. Not only do baking mats do away with the need for tin foil and baking parchment, but they also replace oils and non-stick sprays. 

From an environmental point of view, we should all be more committed to using fewer single-use items in our homes, and the simplest way to do this is to rethink some of the products we regularly use, especially if we want to push for a more sustainable future. 

Thankfully, you won’t have to compromise beauty and functionality to live more sustainably. Jennifer Garner's Silpat Roul' Pat, available on Amazon, is good-looking enough to leave on your kitchen countertop

The actress mentioned in her Instagram caption that she usually swears off this 'too scary' bagel recipe. But, thankfully, the Silpat Roul’Pat makes the whole process easier. 

Developed by the French baker and engineer, Guy Demarle, in 1965, he combined natural silicone with a fiberglass core to produce a flexible baking sheet that was completely heat resistant, non-stick, and with the ideal amount of flexibility needed for regular use. In fact, this 'exact' mat can be used in ovens up to 500°F (260°C) – making it perfect for all your baking needs. 

A celebrity favorite, Slipat's reputation was sealed when Martha Stewart regularly used one on her TV shows. 'Anything parchment paper can do, a Silpat can do better, time and time again,' she says. 

If you want to keep your kitchen countertops as clean as possible and make your life easier so you can enjoy baking with your family, a Slipat is the only answer.
