SKU: BreadMat Category:


The BreadMat™ is a reusable parchment paper replacement. It is shaped to fit the majority of popular baking vessels.

Strong handles make moving bread in and out of a hot oven easier and safer than using parchment.

The unique patented design enhances heat distribution, evening color and reducing burns.

It is made from LFGB food-safe silicone and is rated to 500F.

The BreadMat will reduce dark spots and encourage even baking on the bottom of your loaf, but if it still too dark after using The BreadMat, it is recommended to place a heavy baking sheet on the bottom rack of your oven to act as a heat shield to further reduce darkening and to protect your BreadMat from excessive heat.

  1. Julia

    Finally! I have been baking bread for almost a year now and I can not tell you how many rolls of parchment paper I went through. I was cutting my parchment paper the same shape as The Bread Mat, because it’s so convenient to place a loaf into a Dutch oven without burning hands. However, I felt like I was wasting so much paper that way. So grateful for this product! I bake boules and batards on it and both shapes fit very nicely. After baking, I just rinse it with water and it’s brand new. I also noticed that the bottom of my loaves get a very even color and don’t burn as much as without it. The quality is amazing! I am so pleased with it that I’m shipping one out to my friend in England. It’s a must item for every baker to have.

  2. @birdysbread

    I’ve been using an Amazon version of the bread mat for almost a year, and I knew there had to be a better design.
    TheBreadMat solved all the problems I had with the Amazon version. It is not too hot to touch coming out of the oven, it’s sturdy and durable, and it has the perfect circumference to fit my bigger boules.
    I am super happy with @thebreadmat and I’m telling everyone. Haha! If you bake bread, buy it. It’s worth every Penny.

  3. Lisa wollek

    I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally have these bread mats!
    I have a micro bakery and efficiency and economy are super important! I don’t have to buy stacks and stacks of parchment paper anymore so that’s a win financially and from a waste perspective!
    So glad I got it on the ground floor and got mine! Looking forward to many happy bakes. 🙏🏻

    Absolutely love this product. So easy to use and care for. No longer feel the guilt of using so much parchment. I also feel like the bottom of my bread has more consistent browning. I will definitely recommend or maybe gift 🤫 this to the 2 friends that convinced me I could bake bread.

  5. Meadow @meadows_bakes

    These are a must have! I was using a bread sling from Amazon and it’s flimsy and hot out of the oven and the bottoms of my loaves were still getting too dark. These mats are so much sturdier and make the bottom of my loaves perfectly evenly brown! And I love the textures they leave, it’s so pretty! 😍 Bravo! Telling all my friends about them ☺️

  6. Aris (verified owner)

    Yo!! This is a game changer!! No more parchment paper to cut to fit my baking vessels. Today I baked in both my challenger and on my spin iron cloche and the bread mat did amazing!! Never looking back!!

  7. Maureen (verified owner)

    Love it!! Makes my life easier, my bread better, and avoids wasting parchment paper, what’s not to love?! The generously-sized side tabs make moving loaves into/out of the baking vessel SO easy (and way more safe). It fit perfectly in my Lodge combo cooker. My loaves came out with a beautifully dark bottom 😀. It’s also easy to clean and store.

  8. Dolores (verified owner)

    Tried these out for the first time yesterday, one boule and one batard. Each loaf was >1,000 grams and was worried whether they’d fit, but they did! These mats worked PERFECTLY with both. Easy to load and unload into the Challenger baker. Plus, the browning on the bottom was even. I am so excited about baking bread again thanks to these 😊

    No more shredding parchment paper! 🙌🏼

  9. Beth (verified owner)

    We have been using the breadmat for several weeks. Firstly, not using so much parchment paper is a win! This Mat is well constructed, washes up nicely and is easy to handle. There is even browning on the bottom of our loaves and this mat fits well in our lodge combo cooker. I would highly recommend this mat to any bread makers out there. we also feel the cost is very good for the product.

  10. Zoe Richards (verified owner)

    Thanks to The Bread Mat I’ve just produced my best ever bake – and the bottom of the loaf is crispier and browner. I was excited to use The Bread Mat but I didn’t expect such amazing results. Can’t wait to do my next bake.

  11. Finlay (verified owner)

    The Bread Mat is an incredible product that not only helps me produced better bread but also reduces waste with parchment paper which is a huge selling point for me. I have never bought something so fast in my life and it has gone way beyond my expectations that were already high. I’m already looking forward to my next bake!

  12. Lisa Wollek

    OK, finally got a chance to use my bread mats!!! Sooooo glad I got 4!
    Well-made and sturdy
    Lightweight easy to clean and store
    Simple to use… Those grab tabs are everything!
    Interestingly enough: my bakes are even better than with parchment. Something about the way the bottom of the loaves is affected seems to assist with browning and crisping.

    I didn’t think of it myself!

    Way to go guys! 🙌🏻

  13. Jacob F (verified owner)

    Such a great product! Easy to store and clean, really reduces burning and encourages a more even bake, and eliminates having to waste parchment paper every time I bake! Can’t recommend this highly enough.

  14. Megan G (verified owner)

    So excited and grateful to finally have the bread mats! I was struggling with bottom crusts getting too dark and these have solved that problem 100%. I can’t speak to how long they last, but they feel sturdy and I can’t find anything I’d change. I typically bake boules in a Lodge combo cooker, and both boules and batards and smaller things like bread bowls in my Challenger pan. These mats work great for all things! Highly recommend to all bread bakers. Very much worth the price. No more endless cutting and wasting parchment. Thank you, Rosehill Sourdough!

  15. Desiree Craig (verified owner)

    Where has The BreadMat been all my bread-baking life?! This is a game changer, no more wasting flimsy parchment! My loaves baked up beautifully, and they washed up so easily. My only critique is I find the handles a bit short. In my smaller Dutch oven (Le Crueset) only about an inch sticks up over the edge to be able to grab, and in my larger Dutch oven (Le Creuset) I wasn’t able to grab the mat out of it at all by the handles, had to just grab the loaf, which is totally fine – BUT I think a couple extra inches in length on the handles would make the BreadMat absolute perfection. I mean, it’s 99% there already! Absolutely love it and will be telling all my sourdough baker friends about it!

  16. Kelly M (verified owner)

    I can’t even begin to explain how much of a gamer changer the BreadMat is for my sourdough bread making – just an incredible product. Not to mention it never felt great to use so much parchment paper to then just throw away. This is a useful, easy to clean reusable staple I will be using time and time again!

  17. Marci (verified owner)

    Well this mat has just about changed everything for my bread baking! It protects my loaves bottoms so well and i am so glad I decided to give them a try! I highly recommend getting yourself a pair if you like to bake sourdough breads and get that nice artisan style dark color, it’ll save those bottoms from getting too toasty!

  18. Scott (verified owner)

    These mats are phenomenal! So much better than parchment in many ways: better bake, cleaner, no waste, more stable when transferring, and saves me money in the long run. (I could go on) Browning is extremely even on the bottom and perfectly crisp.
    I was super impressed with the fast order processing and the condition that the mats arrived in. I’ve been telling all of my bread friends about these!

  19. Grace

    I order a bread mat and some baskets and after 1st use of the mat, it had a bit of unraveling. So I contacted the owner and they immediately sent me not one but TWO replacement mats. And those mats are incredible!! I’m absolutely obsessed with the performance of the products and the high quality customer service. Highly recommend anything from this company!

  20. Matt

    Love the Breadmat!! Having used a bread sling from Amazon, the Breadmat was much better quality! Plus, no more parchment. Totally environment friendly! Anyone who bakes should definitely grab these!

  21. Lisa (verified owner)

    I’ve been baking sourdough for over 4 years. I love this bread mat!! No more parchment paper! I love that it’s flexible but still strong enough to support a large boulle!
    Great craftsmanship, easy to clean and very durable. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys baking quality breads!!

  22. Pam

    LOVE the bread mat!
    No more parchment paper, even baking across the bottom and super easy to clean!!! Love the tabs for getting the bread out!

  23. Kelli (verified owner)

    Amazing piece of kit for any bread baker. The bottom of my loaves brown evenly everytime. So easy to use with the handles to get bread out the dutch oven when hot. Couldn’t recommend enough!!

  24. foodiebryan

    Love my mats! They’re perfect for my baking set up. While I’ve never had any issues with burnt bottoms for my loaves, the mat actually leaves a really nice “stamp” on the bottom of my loaves! I want to get some more since I usually bake more than 2 loaves at a time! If you haven’t gotten one (or two yet) you ARE missing out! They’re super easy to clean as well. After letting them cool down, I use warm soapy water and leave them to dry on top of my drying mat or i take a tea towel and then roll it up with the mat! Thanks for this amazing tool that I got to add in my baking arsenal!

  25. The Mobile Baker

    Awesome product. Highly recommend to those baking in cast iron. No more parchment and no more burnt bottoms! Love it!

  26. David

    It’s so easy to store and use, and the bread comes out with a more balanced bottom. Easy recommendation.

  27. Kathryn

    The Bread Mat has completely changed my sourdough game. First off it’s just so convenient being reusable and not having to waste so much parchment paper! It’s so nice to be able to score your dough on the mat and then easily transfer into your cooking vessel. One thing I didn’t expect is that it has helped give my loaves a more even crust on the bottom. THANK YOU!
    If you on the end whether to buy it or not, buy it. You won’t regret it!

  28. Natasha

    I love the bread mat. No more burnt bottoms and it elevates my bake. Love, love, love. Highly recommend .

  29. Alicia (verified owner)

    This has been a total game changer as a newbie to sourdough I was getting so frustrated with using parchment paper. My bread has come out beautiful golden brown every time no singed bottoms! I will be getting more

  30. Emily K (verified owner)

    After baking bread for over a year using a parchment paper liner- this is a game changer!! My loaves no longer have strange ripples on the sides from the creases of the paper! I had dropped several loaves from the parchment tearing when taking it out of the Dutch oven. I also love the texture it brings to the bottom of the loaf. This makes the process so much easier. They are easy to clean and so functional!! Love my bread mats and have been recommending them to all my bread baking friends

  31. Parker (verified owner)

    I absolutely love the Bread Mat. I’ve always struggled with the bottom of my loaves being too dark and the Bread Mat is the solution. I hope they manufacture quarter and half sheet pan sizes!

  32. Nathan m.

    I absolutely love my breadmat. I used to struggle with balancing a high enough temp in my oven to get nice oven spring, but not burn the bottom of my bread. This has absolutely solved that problem. It also helps that I am no having to fill the landfills with parchment paper. Would recommend this product to anyone looking to improve their bread baking process!

  33. Shari Duncan

    I have just begun my baking adventures with The BreadMat and I am already loving them! I have used far too much parchment paper, so it’s nice to now have an amazing, reusable product. I highly recommend The BreadMat.
    Two thumbs way up!!

  34. Carmella Hardy (verified owner)

    I recently bought two bread mats and could not be happier . Having baked sourdough for four years now, I have gone through so much parchment paper. This definitely is easier to move your dough in and out of Dutch oven and cleans so easy! Would highly recommend .

  35. Ali, Wild Clementine

    The Bread Mat has been the perfect addition to my baking arsenal, partly because it’s reusable and easier than parchment paper and partly because I don’t have to worry about burning my knuckles anymore. Definite win!

  36. Karen E. (verified owner)

    This mat is a game changer for me! I used to get really thick bottoms on my loaves and since using the BeadMat, the bottoms are perfect. I also like that I’m not wasting or having to cut parchment any longer.

  37. Shelbi (verified owner)

    I bake at least two loaves every week and these bread mats have been wonderful addition to my process. I recommend them to everyone I know and can’t find any faults. Just a fab product. Please make more shapes so I can use them for baking bagels/scones etc. 👌🏻

  38. Renee Pullen

    I absolutely love my bread mat and highly recommend it. I love that I can reuse it over and over again. It is really easy to use and to clean.

  39. Carson

    Amazing product! If you are someone who makes bread this is a must have! No fuss with parchment paper, no waste, very easy to clean.

  40. Kelson (verified owner)

    A fantastic product that needed to be invented and now here it is! Previous to this I was using an Amazon version and parchment paper. The Breadmat is so much more superior. It feels a lot more sturdy than the other products I’ve mentioned. A big plus is that it cools down really quickly.

  41. Amy Holmes

    I’ve been baking sourdough for years now, and The Bread Mat is a game changer. It distributes the heat so evenly across the bottom of my loaves that I’m getting golden crusts where I used to get slight burnt patches. It’s easy to use, store and wash. I highly recommend this for anyone baking bread. I’m so glad I chose to change it up and give this a try – I won’t go back.

  42. Alaina Edgett

    I used to reuse parchment paper to avoid waste. The ripping, burning and weird crimped lines in my bread was very annoying. This is an amazing product that avoids waste and makes such a nice, clean, evenly cooked bottom!

  43. Lulu (verified owner)

    Hi Mike,
    I’m happy with the bread mat I purchased from your website. It gave me the most evenly baked bread bottom ever and helped me avoid burns on my hands when lifting the bread out of the Dutch oven. Super!

  44. Judy, @ohfortheloaf

    I am in love with TheBreadMat!! It’s a perfect fit for 4 different-sized round and oval dutch ovens that I use. I’ve baked about 4-6 loaves every weekend for the past 2 months and they are still in pristine condition. My favorite thing about TheBreadMat is the consistently perfect and crisp bread and pizza bottoms! I would highly recommend this to any baker.

  45. Anna Hipp (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE the bread mat! I had been using a cheap silicone sling from Amazon, but this product is far superior. I’ve had mine for a few months and bake 4-6 loaves a week. There is no sign of wear at all! They’re lightweight, easy to clean, roll up neatly to store, and save so much parchment paper! They are totally worth the investment.
    The only thing I’d change if I could would be to have the option to buy one with longer handles for my deeper dutch ovens. The current handle length is great if you’re baking with a bread cloche or challenger pan, but are a bit short to reach in dutch oven. Not a deal breaker by any means, though.

  46. Cindy Grgurich (verified owner)

    Love this ! Works well .

  47. Collin (verified owner)

    Love it. If I had more Dutch ovens I’d buy so many more. 🙂

  48. Christina (verified owner)

    What a GAME CHANGER the breadmat has been for me and my cottage bakery! No more running through parchment paper like crazy. It’s so simple to transport my bread to the Dutch oven, and it releases like a breeze. Will never go without it!

  49. Sam

    I hate using parchment paper for baking bread so much. it’s almost impossible to grab the ends from deep within my dutch oven without either dropping the loaf flat on its face because the parchment tore in half, or burning the hell out of my knuckles.
    This mat truly lives up to the hype. it’s easy to use, well constructed, no sticking or getting burnt or slip sliding around, and the best part IMO is that it’s reusable. My only suggestion would be to make a mat with slightly longer handles for deep dutch ovens so that they’re a bit easier to grab. If you release one of those, i’ll buy it immediately!

  50. Trish (verified owner)

    Love my new breadmat!!! It’s so much easier to use than parchment paper. I will be purchasing more and recommending it to my friends!!!

  51. Lorri Flom (verified owner)

    So glad I bought the bread mat! So much nicer than cutting parchment. Saves me time and money. I also lay it on top of my loaf while it is in the fridge overnight. Very happy with it. No i think i need one of those proofing baskets!

  52. Mark (verified owner)

    One of the best things I have bought during my bread baking journey. So easy to place the mat across my banneton, flip the dough right onto the mat, grab the 2 tabs and put it right into the hot dutch oven. No more parchment, no more burns. Well worth the investment. Love these!

  53. Nir (verified owner)

    If there’s a single thing that was a game changer in my bread baking, it’s the bread mat. I kid you not. It’s amazing. My breads are simply better thanks to that. I had serious problems with the loaves bottom not baked properly and the Bread Mat solved it. It’s also super easy to use, washes easily, stored easily, I just love this product.

  54. Vivian Wilson (verified owner)

    These breadmats are awesome. I’ve been baking sourdough for about a year now. I’ve always felt bad about the amount of parchment paper I’ve used. Problem solved. But even more importantly are the great results I’m seeing with using them. No more burned bottoms. Yeah!! Love them.

  55. Alis (verified owner)

    These breadmats are amazing. I am new at this and it definitely makes learning easier.

  56. Maura V

    I received my bread mat as a prize for a marbled bread challenge on facebook, I’ve been using it a month and will NOT be going back to filling my trash can with the waste of parchment paper, I LOVE my bread mat! No more burnt bottoms and it’s so quick and easy to clean. I’ve been recommending it like crazy on my sourdough groups.

  57. Virginia (verified owner)

    I’m an avid bread baker and LOVE THIS MATT!!! so much easier and eco friendly than parchment paper!

  58. Lnda I (verified owner)

    Used it for the first time yesterday and it was the most amazing tool in my cupboard for sourdough baking. I made a cinnamon raisin sourdough boule and some of thee filling leaked out. Normally, this would have been a mess to clean out of the cast iron dutch oven, but the bread mat lifted right out and the boule slipped off onto the cooling rack. I will never bake without the bread mat under a loaf. Thanks so much for this innovative product.

  59. Tom Reese (verified owner)

    My new favorite baking tool! I saw this mentioned on a sourdough blog and had to try it. Parchment worked okay, but took a sheet per loaf and left wrinkles in the side of my boules. Also, I never really trust wet parchment. I’ve used this mat a few times now and it is perfect. The ideal size for baking in a dutch oven and getting the loaf in and out without screwing it up of getting burned. Loved it enough I immediately sent a pair to a good friend.

  60. Dana C. (verified owner)

    Wow, absolutely love my new Breadmats. I use both a cloche baker and a size 26 Le Creuset dutch oven to bake my bread in. The Breadmat works perfect in the cloche but the handles are a wee short in the dutch oven. It’s easy enough though to just lift them away from the sides of the pot with a fork, grab them and lift out. Would buy again in a heartbeat, especially since I’ll be saving so much on parchment!

  61. Christine (verified owner)

    Love this mat. This is the 2nd I ordered.
    Bought an extra for myself and one for my daughter in law for Christmas.
    Really makes it easy to retrieve you loaf for your Dutch oven,

  62. Kaitlin (verified owner)

    I’m still not sold on if the mats were worth adding to my sourdough baking. The handles are too short to pull bread out of dutch ovens, so I now have to dump them out instead of being able to easily lift them like I could with parchment. I do like that the mats provide more even browning, and the texture it leaves on the bottom. I can’t justify going back to parchment after purchasing these, so I’ll keep on with them, but I won’t be getting another for my 3rd dutch oven.

  63. Tammie Wade (verified owner)

    Works great and no more paper cutting. Bread loaf was browned perfectly.

  64. Kristi (verified owner)

    The bread mat is the best! No more ripping or cutting or buying endless amounts of parchment paper! And no more weird indents on my bread from awkwardly folded paper in the Dutch oven. I also like the texture on the bottom of the bread from these. Definitely worth the money!

  65. Karla (verified owner)

    Love my new bread mats…..I bought 2! It is so great to not waste so much parchment paper! Perfect shape, my bread bakes evenly. You will not regret your purchase!

  66. Jennifer (verified owner)

    I love it! It makes transferring in and out of the Dutch oven so much easier and I’m not wasting so much parchment paper. I wish I had ordered two…

  67. Kathie (verified owner)

    Have baked many loaves since I received my BreadMat (v1.0) in October, 2023. Very happy with bake results and ease of use.

  68. Elana Essers (verified owner)

    I bought the bread mat as a birthday gift for myself. And what a treat it has turned out to be! I feel good not using one time use parchment paper. It definitely fits into our less – waste lifestyle that we are trying to manage here. My husband has noticed that the bottom of the bread doesn’t seem as tough. I’ll take that as a win! I love supporting a small company, and as I watched your live gift list show the other night I was even happier that I had supported someone who obviously cares so much about his product and the bread community. Thank you for all that you do.
