I can remember this being a normal stable in my mothers covered since I was a small child. Now it's a regular staple in my cupboard. I use this for so many things. It's very handy for grilling and also for baking in the oven. I like to line all of my cookie sheets with it when I'm just putting a pizza or other items on a pan to bake for short period of time. There's no end of the possibilities of what you can do with this. What a great invention!
