We are a foodie family for sure. I have always loved to cook and I learned how by watching my great grandma and also my daddy. My family would depend on me to cook lasagna when our extended family would come over for Christmas. Cooking was always MY thing...until I married a chef. I must admit that I love being married to a chef. He does most of the cooking, but I still get to enjoy myself and whip up some family favorites, especially this time of year.
It never fails that whenever I clean my oven, I will bake something the next day that will spill over into the bottom. In the past, people suggested placing foil in the bottom of the oven, which I do not recommend. Well, I found a Nonstick Oven liner by Chef's Planet that works wonderfully and I do not have to worry about spills messing up my oven any more.
What exactly is an Ovenliner? Well, it’s a time saver. A drip blocker. A crumb catcher. A spill protector. A burnt food guard. It’s your nonstick secret to never having to clean the bottom of your oven again. The Chef’s Planet Ovenliners makes life in the kitchen easier. While you cook, they collect; shielding the bottom of your oven from splatters, spills and overall mess. Made for standard ovens, toasters and microwaves too.
What are the Chef's Planet Ovenliner and Bakeware liners made of? Chef's Planet Ovenliners and Bakeware Liners are made of PTFE coated fiberglass. PTFE stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene and is a patented nonstick surface. This coated surface (PTFE) is generally known to the public by DuPont's brand name Teflon.

This oven liner is very easy to use. Simply place the liner on the lowest rack of your oven. Do not place it on the oven floor. You can place the item you are baking directly on top of the liner without worry too. The food will cook as evenly with it in place as it would without it, but having the Chef's Planet nonstick oven liner in place will keep your oven clean! Clean up is a breeze too. You can throw the liner into the dishwasher or wash it in warm, soapy water, and wipe dry. This would make a wonderful gift for the foodie or cook in your life. This is the reason it made it into the 2012 Shelly's Bits & Pieces Holiday Gift Guide!
