8 Key Benefits Of Using Silicone Bakeware

8 Key Benefits Of Using Silicone Bakeware

Silicone baking products came out onto the market place several years ago. When I first saw these products in the local retail stores, I was skeptical that they would perform just as well as my traditional baking dishes.

I decided to purchase a loaf pan and take it home to try it out. After all, I am an avid baker and would really put it through the test. After a few uses, I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised at how well it performed, matter of fact, it performed better than my metal and glass baking dishes.

Over the years, I have purchased numerous pieces of silicone bakeware and I can honestly say, I now use them every day when I bake for my family.

Here are 8 key benefits of why you need to use this type of bakeware in your own kitchen.

1. You will find that you can readily purchase the baking pans out in the market and for an economical price...many will come with a multi-year warranty, which makes them a great investment.

2. You will find that you will get even heat distribution, completely baked centers and even browning of your baked goods.

3. Silicone bakeware does not rust, dent or stain. Your bakeware will look beautiful for many years, with the proper care.

4. You will find that the majority of the baking pans are dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, conventional oven and convection oven safe, up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Please read manufacturers instructions as this can vary.

5. You will save time and calories because these types of baking pans do not need any greasing or flouring. They are made from a nonstick material, making the removal of your baked item, quick and easy.

6. Once they are removed from the oven, they cool down quickly.

7. Due to the type of material they are constructed from, you can easily fold the baking pans in half or collapse them for storage which saves on kitchen and cabinet space.

8. Clean up is a snap! You can place them on the top rack of your dishwasher or easily hand wash them in hot soapy water.

In closing, I think once you try a piece or two, you will be pleasantly surprised at how silicone bakeware will out perform your metal and glass baking pans. Your baked goods will bake better, taste delicious and clean up...will be a snap.
