1. Simple to Turn Out
Silicone pans make it really simple to turn out or unmold your baked goods and cooked dishes such as meatloaf. Because they are so flexible and completely non-stick, there is no more frustration with some of your beautiful creation getting stuck to the inside of the pan – which is just heartbreaking when you have made a real effort to turn out something delicious and home-made.
2. Safe to Use
Silicone pans cool really quickly when you take them out of the oven, this means that your pan will be cool to touch at the rim so you can unmold cakes and muffins – or whatever you need to do, without risk of burning yourself on a hot pan.
3. Easy to Clean
Silicone bakeware items are easy to use, completely non-stick so there is never anything ‘baked-on’ to try to clean off!
You can just pop the pans or molds in the dishwasher (even on the bottom shelf) or wash them by hand in warm soapy water – you can even turn them inside out if you want to!
There are never any tricky corners or crevices to clean whatever shape pan you choose – and there are lots, hearts, stars and more!
Silicone is stain proof so it will not fade or discolor and because is is non-absorbent and scratch-proof, you do not have to worry about any bacteria lurking unseen.
4. Easier to Get Perfect Results
Silicone Bakeware bakes everything evenly. When using a metal pan, you can get crisping at the edges where the cake has been in contact with the sides of the tin. This does not happen with silicone pans, everything browns evenly.
In addition, because the pan cools down so quickly, what you have baked does not go on cooking in the tin, the cooking time stops when you take the pan out of the oven.
5. Silicone Does Not Absorb Cooking Odors
Because silicone bakeware is completely nonporous, it does not absorb odors from what you have cooked. For example, you can bake a spicy meatloaf, wash your pan in warm soapy water and then bake a chocolate cake if you wish and your cake will not have a hint of spicy meatloaf about it!
6. Safe to Use At a Wide Range of Temperatures
All silicone bakeware brands have slightly different instructions for use, but as a good rule of thumb, you can use your pans in the freezer right down to around minus 40oC degrees. In the oven, you can use them right up to around 250oC (Centigrade) – that’s about 480oF (Fahrenheit).
7. Easy To Store
This type of bakeware is easy to store because the pans are lightweight and flexible. You never have to worry about them breaking, getting scratched, dented or going rusty.
