Wrap Up All Of Your Cooking Problems.

Since, I am a stay at home dad I usually try and do the cooking and baking and since my wife has a cooking background as a sue-chef she has taught me a lot of cooking ideas. One of them is using this Parchment paper by Reynolds; we found this at our local grocery store for only three dollars for a thirty square foot roll. If you are having a hard time finding this product, I found that the best place to look is right next to the aluminum foil. I have seen that there has been a big shift in using this stuff instead of using shorting to grease your cookie sheet, at least in our household it gets used more to prevent a lot less mess. I have found that things that we bake will never stick as when we use shortening sometimes the cookies will still stick.

This roll of paper is not like the wax paper, this is a very high density paper that will allow you to cook and bake with it without it falling apart or burning up. This comes in a roll that is 15” wide and 24’ in length. This is white in color and it does not matter which side that you use, either side will not stick to your product or the cooking utensil. This paper comes in a long square box so that when you fold the lid shut, there is a very sharp metal edge (like the teeth of a fine hand saw) this will allow you to tear the paper evenly and with one quick pull. This paper will burn if you try and put it next to a flame, but the main thing to remember is to preheat the oven before you stick it inside, this paper will only last inside of the oven is less than 420 degrees. Make sure you do not try to use this in a broiler, because of the flame that is below. This is also made of 100% recycled paperboard.

This product comes with a money back guarantee, if you are not satisfied all you have to do is contact the company by calling them (800-433-2244) or by emailing them through their web site, http://www.reynoldskitchens.com/ they will promptly amend any problems that you may have.

I have mainly used this when I am baking cookies and I have periodically tried to use this when baking a cake but when I use it for the cake it likes to sit up in the corners and not lay flat. Where as in a cookie sheet or tin this paper works wonders with the cooking cookies or brownies. A long time ago before I started using this paper I would always have problems with the cookies sticking and the edges getting a little singed while baking. Since, I have began using this paper from Reynolds I have noticed a definite improvement in that area.

This paper has almost taken the place of the aluminum foil by Reynolds. The real nice thing that this paper has going for it is the fact that unlike aluminum foil it does not matter what side that you use. I usually put the paper down where the side that curls up from being rolled up is pointing towards the cookie sheet. You can use this on steaks and fish but I am still getting used to the fact that it helps in the cookies and brownies department.

By, using this instead of greasing the pan before cooking, means that you will have less calories to deal with if you wanted to eat your own treats. I have even adventured into using this in the microwave and found this paper to be just as valuable. The regular oven though, I have found to be the best area to use it in. In the microwave it is limited as to how much you can use it, for the most part I use it to cover things so they will not stick or flow out onto the side of the dish. The oven on the other hand this paper can be used to cook on and wrap things up and still cook them and save you the mess afterwards.

This is an excellent addition to your baking needs and will save you time and money. Plus the fact that when you get done with it and throw it away the land fill will let degrade a lot faster than foil. Five stars for the help that this give me in the kitchen. Plus, if you would give this a try you will not be dissatisfied with this product.

Great review! I never knew so much could be said about parchment paper! :) I have to pick some up at the store now... I never grease the sheet when I bake, I use aluminum foil and most of the time it doesn't stick (if the dough has butter in it).

A much better, less toxic alternative to aluminum foil! Great for baking cookies and lining pans for roasting. Just don't go above 420°F!

This will make you baking look like a proffessional did it.
