SILICONE MATS
ALL IN ONE SET

In this phenomenal, generously sized and modestly priced set you’ll receive two baking sheets (16 x 12 x 1 inch), two cooling racks (15 x 11 x 0.6 inch) and two silicone mats (15 x 11 inch) that altogether weigh in at an appreciable 4.8 pounds. Because they’re formed from pure 18/0 stainless steel that’s rust proof and mirror finished for a lovely shine (no other materials and no chemical coatings used), you’ll surely hold the confidence that these strong and solidly built sheets and racks will last you a good long time and stay looking beautiful. Fashioned with fiberglass mesh along with the highest quality food-grade and BPA-free silicone, the mats are not only completely non-toxic but they’re also fully recyclable.

If you’re not totally wowed yet, know that the sheets and racks are dishwasher safe and you are able to use each one separately for various culinary tasks.

DANISH DOUGH WHISK

Unlike a standard whisk, you’ll love how dough does not get caught up in the wires of a Danish dough whisk. In addition to its durable construction of 304 stainless steel… the head and handle of this particular, rust-proof, easy to clean and dishwasher safe whisk have been welded together for increased strength. You’ll be totally amazed and highly impressed at how this 12 inch, incredibly strong, thick wired whisk cuts through even those heavy, stiff doughs ever so quickly and with the greatest of ease. Woohoo, hippity hip hooray!… it’s time to celebrate as those unwanted pockets of dry flour that hide at the bottom of the mixing bowl are now a thing of the past, and this whisk’s rounded shape makes quite simple the task of scraping any bowl’s circumference. It’s really a no-brainer to turn your back on and wave a forever goodbye to spoon stirring and mixing that causes undue stress and strain to your hand and forearm. Why not choose to use the same modestly priced, innovative culinary tool that master chefs and pastry chefs alike choose to use when they bring together and diligently work their doughs… a Danish dough whisk? It’s a definite game changer.
