Here are a few products I use to make cleanup easier in the kitchen.
Aluminum foil or tinfoil is one of my favorite kitchen tools. Does it count as a kitchen tool? No? Okay, well, it's still one of my favorite things to use in the kitchen. When I'm baking something messy or greasy (such as bacon!) I line the pan with tinfoil. It conforms to the pan, even the corners, and makes cleaning up so much easier. As long as you don't rip a hole in the tinfoil as you're removing the food... Tinfoil also is great for keeping food warm since it holds the heat in.
Parchment paper is great for baking. It helps cookies bake more evenly and keeps them from sticking to the pan. I don't bake unless I have some of this stuff on hand. One time, I ran out of parchment paper and substituted tinfoil. Bad idea. Tinfoil conducts more heat and the cookies did not bake well.
Wax paper is great for rolling out cookie dough, pie crust, etc. Just sandwich the dough between two sheets of wax paper and voila! No more dough sticking to the counter or rolling pin. Plus...easy cleanup!
