Starting to make out my birthday list and was thinking of putting this on it. I know dough and things don't stick to it but don't know much more about it. Can you cut veggies, etc. on it? Does anyone have one? What do you think? Do you find it a useful thing to have?

I have one and I use it under casseroles, in baking, lots of stuff. But it's not, at least to my knowledge, a cutting board. It's mainly to use as a non-stick surface.

Ditto.

I think they are mainly to put on a cookie type sheet so the food doesn't stick.

I don't own any silpats but they have been talked about before so if you do a search I bet you could find some information on them. I wish I could be of more help. Good Luck.

...and when do I graduate from a Junior Member to a Senior Member? Do I have to earn badges for cooking specific items? 45 points for a pie? 12 points for a tuna casserole?

50 posts makes you a senior member - so get busy posting!

And as far as the silpat goes, it's fiberglass/silicone - so you absolutely cannot cut on it without ruining it. It's meant to be a no stick baking sheet only.

I have also used mine when kneading dough and rolling out tart dough.I think they're great.
