Parchment Paper vs. Silicone Mats

Parchment Paper vs. Silicone Mats

 

Material

Parchment Paper: Parchment paper is made from various types of wood, primarily sourced from wood and bamboo. These materials undergo thorough processing in paper mills to create food-grade paper suitable for contact with food. During the paper manufacturing process, a non-stick coating is often applied to enhance its non-stick properties during baking.

Silicone Mat for Air Fryer: When you use our silicone mats, you’re benefiting from 100% food-grade silica gel raw material. This material is BPA-free, ensuring safety. The silicone mats are non-stick, washable, and reusable, making them an eco-friendly choice. They have no odor and won’t adhere to food.

The silicone mats boast a maximum temperature resistance of 460°F, and even at high temperatures, they won’t emit harmful gases that could affect the taste of your food. Rest assured, our products have passed FDA testing.

As you continue to use the silicone pads, you’ll find them increasingly cost-effective, saving you unnecessary expenses in the long run.

Cooking Results

Parchment Paper: When you’re dealing with parchment paper, it usually comes in round, square, or full rolls. Adjusting it to fit your air fryer or oven size requires manual cutting, which can be quite cumbersome and time-consuming.

Silicone Mat for Air Fryer: When customizing your silicone mat, you have the option to design a raised line or incorporate your logo on the bottom. This raised design enhances the heat circulation during the baking process, ensuring thorough cooking and even distribution of heat. Additionally, it allows excess fat to drain from the food, enhancing both the taste and healthiness of your meals. In the design phase, considerations can be made for compatibility with air fryers, microwave ovens, and regular ovens, and the mats can be crafted in various sizes to suit different appliances.
