The BreadMat

(209 customer reviews)


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.

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

The BreadMat is manufactured in China

    I’ve been baking sourdough for two years using parchment paper to line either my round Dutch Oven or Challenger Bread Pan. I finally treated myself to the BreadMats and so happy I did. It’s much easier and safer lifting the baked loaf out of the pans and now I’m not wasting paper. Also, the bottom of each loaf bakes more evenly. Would highly recommend purchasing a BreadMat .

    The BreadMat is great! I’ve only been baking sourdough for a couple months; and every loaf is on experiment for me. Im learning the process and what tools that I want and/or need. The BreadMats are keepers!

    The best bread mat you can get ! I love that it fits my challenger and I use them with open baking too. Easy to maintain!

  4. Darla Pitts (verified owner)

    After several attempts over many years, I am finally having success making sourdough bread. The bread mats make it so easy to transport my loaves to the cast iron pans, and the bottoms are beautiful every time. I make 2 loaves every week. Delicious!!

    I am new to baking sourdough bread. I tried baking my sourdough bread the first time without the breadmat. I can honestly say I hope to never bake my bread without a breadmat again! Absolutely love it!
