KZ Cooking is a family-owned business that focuses on simple, fun, and functional kitchen products. KZ Cooking was born out of a need for a simple, easy-to-use baking mat. Jen and Ben (founders) were baking cookies during the Holiday season and Ben was in charge of spacing out the cookies and putting them in the oven. A fairly important role so that the cookies bake evenly and don’t “run into” each other. You would think that it would be easy to estimate what 2 inches apart looked like…but the merged/mangled/unevenly cooked cookies would say otherwise. It was in that moment, while Ben was eating his 5th “not good enough to give to people” cookie, that the idea for the KZ Cooking silicone baking mat was born!
