I was fortunate enough to have my Step Mom give me this wonderful vintage 1970’s Tupperware Pastry mat. If you can get your hands on some of these items for your kitchen you will find that they will be invaluable to you in your cooking endeavors and something that you will use again and again! I love this mat because not only it saves me using wax paper over and over so its “sustainable”……aaaah we forget how often that we say we want to be sustainable but are the items we are using in our lives actually sustainable?….sorry for being so redundant but you catch my meaning. 😉
Look in the photo below and you will see that Tupperware really thought of everything for the at home kitchen baker and conveniently listed substitutions, equivalents, instructions to make pastry for a pie, and directions to make biscuits.
Believe it or not back in the late 80’s I was a Tupperware Consultant……I realized quickly that sales was a lot more than having a good product you had to have that sparkle………I was not passionate about Tupperware but I am extremely passionate about homesteading….can you tell?
I have seen this particular mat on Etsy for $20 and as low as $6.99 on Ebay. There may be other pastry mats on the market but this one is so easy to clean, and it just rolls up and fits right in my Tupperware cabinet….big surprise that it would be stored there right?
Do you use something similar to this mat that might benefit our readers? Please share if you do.
