I adore kitchen gadgets and the latest one I've acquired is an inexpensive little tool that I don't know how I ever lived without. It's a non stick pastry mat. We bake a lot and up until now I was flouring the counter and dealing with the big mess it left...but now I have my mat. It's so nifty that I just had to sing it's praises. Now, don't you just want one. I got mine at Target and it has quite a bit of information for the home pastry chef printed on it and additionally it has circles in different diameters so that you know just how big you're rolling out your dough, now isn't that helpful? Best of all is the quick clean up, I simply bend and then toss all the flour and mess in the trash and presto chango...no mess.
Go out and get one, it'll change your life.
