  • Waxed paper will melt in the oven. Parchment paper is especially for baking. The parchment paper doesn't allow food to stick to its surface that's why I like it so much for baking.

  • No. The "WAX" will melt off.

  • No- like everyone else has said, wax melts.
    If it's just for something like rice crispy treats (not baked) it would be ok-
