The BreadMat

Yes, you can make oval loaves with a round BreadMat. I do it all the time!

The v2, -L, and -C all feature a solid silicone border to strengthen the mat
The v2 is the same size as the Original BreadMat
The -L has longer handles
The -C is cut perfectly for The Challenger Bread Pan

Which one should you get? Sizing below based on popular vessels:

Vessel BreadMat Size
Lodge 4.5 Qt. Dutch Oven The BreadMat v2
Lodge 6 Qt. Dutch Oven -L or v2
Lodge 7 Qt. Dutch Oven The BreadMat-L
Field Company No 10 The BreadMat-L
Challenger Bread Pan The BreadMat-C
Lodge 3.2 Qt. Combo Cooker The BreadMat v2
Le Creuset Bread Oven The BreadMat v2

I cannot recommend the Lodge 5 Qt. Combo Cooker or the Lodge 5qt Dutch Oven as the diameter is too small and the uncoated rough interior can cause wear on the mat which can shorten its longevity. If you already own one of these, I recommend purchasing the Lodge 3.2 Qt. Combo Cooker and using the base of that (which perfectly fits The BreadMat) with the deeper side of the Combo Cooker or Dutch Oven as a lid.

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 platinum 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.

* I can not longer ship the original BreadMat Internationally because of an issue with the packaging being an envelope and not a box. I can only ship the v2, the -L, and the -C internationally from now on.

Return Policy:
Since these are a food contact item, I cannot return opened BreadMats.

The BreadMat is manufactured in China

    I just wanted to say that the bread mat has been a game changer with my loaves. The bottom crust has now become a favorite part of the loaf. I honestly didn’t know how much it would affect the outcome as much as it has. Between that at the proofing basket 👌🏻 .. I can’t go back to what I was using.

    My only regret is that I didn’t order more. 😆

    All I can say is this product is absolutely amazing and has eliminated my need for multiple layers of parchment paper. I’ve tried other bread slings/mats and returned them, but these worked like a charm for both my 5 qt Lodge cast iron double dutch oven and my DASH oval 6 qt cast iron double Dutch oven. Phenomenal product!!

    I am so pleased with my bread mats.
    I also was very pleased with the redused packaging.
    I love shopping local, and supporting small business.
    There was a lovely note on my receipt from Julia, which truly made my day.
    I look forward to trying these out on my next baking day.
