Tools: Silpat

This convenient silicone mat is an amazing tool for making sweet-potato fries, cookies, biscuits for eggs benedict or even just a steak.  You can buy them online through or stop in to Bed Bath & Beyond and pick one up.   They even make round ones to fit in your cake pans!  I would advise anyone who is regularly using a baking sheet to get one.
Make sure that you are not putting it in the dishwasher when you are done because it will make your food taste like soap for ever after.  Because it absorbs a little of what you cook on it, I would also not recommend that you cook a piece of salmon and then bake cookies right away.  Why not just have two? for sweets and one to use for savory items.  Silpat's specific cleaning instructions are on their website.
