Oven liners Teflon v Fibreglass

Has anyone tried these and do they work? They all seem to be made from Teflon or Fibreglass so would like to know if any of you have any ideas as to which is the best.

I wouldn't use one as I regilarly run my oven hot and wouldn't be happy with fumes which can be released.

If I had to choose I'd go for silicone though rather than PTFE type or fiberglass and would check in my oven manual (or email my oven company) to see if it was compatible with my particular model. Some ovens don't recommend them because of heating elements.

I have silicone liners. I don't put one directly on the bottom of the oven though. I put the shelf on the lowest rack and put the liner on that. It's fine at 220°c.

I think lots of people do as you do Minimoon.

I use silicone ones too. They make oven cleaning so much easier. I have a gas cooker though, so there are no elements to worry about.
