K30325 - Technique 3-pc. Silicone Baking Board/ Splatter Shield
I thought this was a great idea to prevent oil from splattering all over the stove top. The product does that job, BUT I encountered the same problem as other reviewers - the silicone tears at the pin connection. When the silicone connection tears, the boards do not stay in the pins and stand upright. So they are now only good as baking boards.
Technique 3-pc. Silicone Baking Board/ Shield wow
Very Nicely Made, Easy To Use, Highly Recommends, Great for No More Splatters, so Easy To Clean. Really has so many uses, have not baked on this yet, but 5 stars for this great handy Board. TY
Not the Best !
I received this on 2-2-12 . It does what I bought it for A Splatter Sheild. This morning 2-19-12 I have a piece of Silicone tore where small peg goes in bottom. I'm not sending it back because the next one would be the same.
I ordered three; two broke within two uses. There were no instructions explaning how to separate the pieces to use as trivets or cookie sheets. You have to pull each metal pin straight out completely and carefully -- it is a short piece of metal --there is no spring or continuous rod that holds the pieces together. Do not wiggle the pins, they have to be pulled straight out. I was able to return the first one, but I was out of town and unable to use the second one before the 30-day return period was up. It too broke on the hinge, simply from folding it for storage after taking it out of the dishwasher. So I am stuck with the broken one and another that surely will break too. The idea and size are good, construction is BAD. Do not waste your money on this unless you want them only for little cookie sheets or trivets.
worked well in preventing splatter all over the stove!
I purchased this for my husband to use. He makes a mess in the kitchen when he cooks anything. He will not use this, feels it is too cumbersome. Claims it folds flat for storage but only one side folds in flat. Was cheap enough to keep.
Thought of a new use . . .
I was thinking of making no-bake cookies for my grandson and it hit me--I can use this baking board and the cookies would never stick to the wax paper again! And it would save on the cost of buying wax paper (I am for saving $$$ any way I can).
Ordering a second one
I just used this for the first time. It was for BBQ grilled chicken. My stove was not splattered and it was just a relief not to have the clean up after cooking. I am ordering a second set so that I can cover all around my two burner grill pan.
I've used this product as a splatter guard, baking boards and to make toffee candy on. No problems removing and replacing the pins...........It cleans up beautifully and the non stick is great. Thanks to cyber Monday with the free shipping!
Works wonderfully as a splatter shield. Cleanup is a breeze. Have not taken it apart to use as a baking sheet yet but not sure I'd be able to get pins back in. I will give it a try in the near future with Christmas around the corner.
I like the concept but am disappointed in my order
I just got this yesterday. It's a great idea and I really like that they can be taken apart and used as separate small baking boards (each measures 9" x 10"). It'll be great, in that I won't have to mess up a big cookie sheet and it's a great size to place in the oven as a drip pan under a small dish.
BUT...one of the connection points (where you put in or pull out the metal pin) is torn. The tear in the silicon is big enough that it will probably break off shortly. Since this was clearance and there is no more red (and that it was a super cyber-Monday deal), I will just keep them. If the product returns, I hope that they will reinforce that area of the product to prevent others from haing the same issue.
Love this item
I like this item because you can do more than one thing with it. I love that it is like the original baking boards with the original silicone cover instead of the textured. This works great for cookies, crafts, etc. It's an excellent item for a couple.
