These Pan Mats are super! They do what they're sold for - protecting work surfaces from hot pan bottoms. However, they're also great for whizzing a baking tray or roasting tin in and out of the oven, being a lot less bulky that many oven gloves. Yes, I know they're not sold for that purpose, but they do the job, so what the heck! They're colourful too.... Recommended!
