Press Release: Silicone

First there were baking liners then cake pans. Now, it seems, silicone is everywhere. From basting brushes to tongs, spatulas and grill mats, the kitchen is heating up with this durable, heat resistant material. Its flexibility and non-stick quality makes it the perfect choice for all cooks.

No more sticking to the grates! No more falling through the grates! Designed to solve these two grilling dilemmas, the GrillMat™ is made from platinum-process silicone that is heat-safe up to 500 degrees of indirect heat. The 100 percent non-stick grilling sheet is manufactured in Spain by Lekue Housewares, the original silicone bakeware company.

The surface of the GrillMat™ is perforated so the fats and juices will drip away from the food and create that distinctive grilled flavor. The GrillMat™ is designed for use on both charcoal and gas grills for any delicate foods, like fish and thinly sliced vegetables, that can stick or fall through the grates. It’s designed to be used over indirect heat, (not directly over an open flame) the preferred grilling method for any delicate foods.

The GrillMat™ is also perfect for indoor cooking. Place a cooling rack on a cookie sheet; place the GrillMat™ on the rack and then arrange the food on the GrillMat™. The elevated cooking surface creates airflow that mimics indirect grilling. Just as in outdoor grilling, the perforated mat lets the fat drain into the cookie sheet for easy clean up.
