Just line your cake tin with it each time you bake, and then clean it in the dishwasher easily. It is made from fibreglass and PTFE, offering a substantial working life.
If you are a fan of cookies - and let's face it, who isn't - a cookie scoop is an easy way of maintaining the uniform size and presentation bakers aim for. It also saves a lot of mess by negating the need to start digging your hands into the mix.
