50 Years of Innovative French Bakeware Experience

Now, we're thrilled to announce that our innovative products, born from half a century of baking experience in France, are available directly to consumers in the USA through our new e-commerce site.

The Story of Silpat
The Silpat® story began in 1965 with Guy Demarle, a renowned French baker who dreamed of developing a better way to prepare and bake his baguettes. He invented a revolutionary baking mat that shook up the world of professional baking.
Guy Demarle named his new mat Silpat®, after the two key components used in his products: a specially formulated silicone and a unique glass fabric. His nonstick silicone mat became Silpat®’s bestseller and is still used in professional kitchens all over the world.
Today, Silpat® is part of the Maison Demarle group and remains the international benchmark in the pastry and bakery industries.

Why #SwitchToSilpat? Here Are 6 Reasons:
1. Flawless Release
Experience the ultimate advantage of Silpat technology: impeccable unmolding. With our nonstick silicone coating, there's no need to grease your steel baking trays. Silpat's innovative technology guarantees a seamless release, preserving the perfect shape and appearance of your baked delights. Bid farewell to the frustration of sticky desserts and delights - Silpat ensures your creations come out flawlessly.
2. Precision in Baking
Baking mishaps are part of the journey, but Silpat's technology is your savior. The fiberglass structure of Silpat mats and silicone molds ensures precise heat distribution, crucial for consistently and flawlessly baked goodies. Say goodbye to concerns about undercooked or overbaked portions.
3. Built to Last
The Silpat baking mat was originally crafted for the rigors of industrial and artisan bakeries, making durability a part of its DNA. Our products are backed by a guarantee of over 2,000 baking cycles, ensuring they stand the test of time. Whether you're baking at high temperatures or freezing your creations, Silpat can handle it all. Its resilience secures your investment.
4. A Cost-Efficient Baking Solution
Selecting a Silpat product is not just a smart baking choice; it's a financially savvy one too. With proper care, a Silpat product can endure over 2,000 baking cycles. In contrast, opting for traditional parchment paper for the same number of uses can lead to substantial expenses. Silpat's longevity offers a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution.
5. Environmentally Responsible
At Silpat, we're committed to environmental responsibility. Our products use phthalate- and BPA-free food-grade silicone. While silicone isn't biodegradable, the sheer number of baking cycles a Silpat product can handle makes it a compelling alternative to disposable parchment paper. By choosing Silpat, you contribute to a greener future with fewer wasted resources and less pollution from disposable baking materials.
6. Crafted in France
Quality control is at the heart of our process. Silpat maintains the entire manufacturing journey in-house, with all our products proudly made in France. From our beginnings in the Somme to our current location in Wavrin, near Lille, our commitment to local production ensures top-notch quality and craftsmanship in every Silpat product.
At Silpat, we believe that the joy of baking should be accessible to all. Our new e-commerce site in the USA is the next chapter in our journey to make baking an enjoyable, successful, and memorable experience for everyone. We invite you to explore our products, connect with our passion for baking, and join us in celebrating 50+ years of Silpat innovation. Here's to many more years of culinary excellence and sharing the love of baking with bakers like you!
