Parchment paper is a fantastically versatile product that has a wide range of uses, but what exactly is it? Coated with silicone to withstand heat and allow for a non-stick surface, parchment paper is a staple in the kitchens of both professional and hobbyist chefs and bakers alike! It is primarily used in cooking as an alternative to greasing, oiling, or buttering the pan and unlike wax paper (which melts in the oven under high heat), it is intended to be used as a non-stick liner on your cooking sheets or pans and put into the oven.
At Zenlogy, we are proud to boast a wide array of high quality, environmentally friendly parchment paper options. Our unbleached parchment papers are coated with a non-toxic vegetable silicone, are chlorine-free, and FDA Approved.
Zenlogy Parchment Paper Rounds are perfect for baking cakes and pizzas.
In addition, we offer cupcake liners to easily remove your cupcakes or muffins from the tin.
Our Parchment Paper is thick and durable, reducing the risk of breakage, tearing, or leaks and can withstand heats of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. They come in a flat, perforated box for easy storage and access, eliminating the need to unroll or flatten the paper.
There are many ways that parchment paper can be used, from setting them in a pan for a non-stick cooking or baking surface, to less traditional, non-cooking uses. Here are a few suggestions for the different ways that you can use parchment paper:
This is probably the most standard use for parchment paper. Baking cakes and cookies can be a sticky, messy process. The use of parchment paper makes it easier to remove your cooked or baked goods from the pan once they are done in the oven, and even help make the clean-up process a little bit quicker! Zenlogy offers 3 sizes for quarter sheet pans (9x13 inch), half sheet pans (12x16 inch), and full sheet pans (16x24 inch), as well as parchment rounds to be used in cake or pie pans.
Making an impromptu piping bag
You can fold the paper into a funnel to use to apply piping to your baked goods, and because Zenlogy parchment paper is thicker than other brands, you don't have to worry about holes or tears once you fill the bag with icing or chocolate.
