This is a great product. The dough does not stick to the mat and it makes it really easy to size out the perfect size for a pie crust. Easy to clean. I also like that it sticks to the counter so it does not move when rolling out. Great product.
I love the size of this mat, it is 17x24. Since I have tiles on my counter tops I can now utilize that space rather than trying to limit working on a cutting board. I have a tendency to be messy and this mat caught everything, clean up is so easy! Also, there is no longer guessing in the size nor 'roundness' of my dough. The mat adheres to the counter surface which makes rolling out dough so easy.
I gave an accomplished pie-maker an early holiday gift so he could make a Thanksgiving pie. The pie dough stuck no matter what he did, and he finally went back to using waxed paper. We will be late for dinner today. We will send the mat back.
I've purchased 2 in the past week, one for my vacation home and one for my personal residence. This is a gift for a son in law. Love the way it holds the counter and releases the material that is on it.
Good question. I have used the mat for rolling out roll dough and I did cut the dough into crescent shapes with a pizza cutter. After reading your question I went to check my mat for cut marks and there were none.
Best Answer:Looks like from some of the reviews below that some did not use flour and found it to work fine and others found it stuck to the mat. I would assume it depends on the moisture content of your dough, but I would probably use a little bit of flour anyways.
Some people report this as being non stick as advertized, but my experience is that of Diane of Nov 27, 2014, I couldn't get a pie crust rolled out on this to release. Retried with an inordinate amount of flour, more than ever used with cloth pastry cloth, and it was "ok" but, even then, where the flour layer was thin, it stuck a bit. I don't want to have my crusts themselves "encrusted" by a thick layer of unincorporated flour. What gives?

Best Answer:I bought the silicone pastry mat but I've only used it once because I prefer my heavy weight pastry cloth that I bought years ago at sur la table. Which I haven't seen around anymore. I wasn't that pleased with the silicone one
