Silicone Bakeware
0

9 posts in this topic

We plan to go get new baking pans for cookies, breads, muffins and what not. We thought we might invest in those new silicone pans. They look great on tv but donno if what they show is correct. Has anyone used them? Are they any good? Are they worth the money? If you do use them have you had any problems baking gluten-free foods in them.....have you still had to grease them? Either way we have to replace them with somthing as all are metal bakeware has seen better days and of course has had plenty of gluten baked in them. Thanks for any input!

I have no experience with using silicone baking tins, but have used the silicone cookie sheet liners and absolutely love them...won't make cookies without them!

I've found a short review of using baking pans here:

Seems that you need to be wary of heavy batters in something like a loaf pan (bows the shape of the pan), and will want to use a metal pan under muffin tins. Also, apparently baked goods brown differently in silicone than in metal.

I've got cupcakes in the oven as I write this in a silicone muffin tin. It works great - I use cupcake liners - and you do have to put a baking sheet underneath it as it doesn't hold its shape when filled with batter.

I love the silicone bakeware, I use a cookie sheet under it, but it works great, I do grease it like a normal pan. I've used my loaf pan for banana breads and for sandwich bread. I use them a lot... I've actually got a whole set of them...

I love them, I also use a liner for the oven, I have a self cleaning oven but its nice when it spills over not to have to clean the whole oven. I dont spray mine and it doesnt stick.

For halloween we made two popcorn bundt cakes. One in a regular pan and one in the silicone bundt pan. We had to use spray in the non silicone one and it made it kind of greasy. I liked the silicone one better.

I don't use them, but had to pop in to say that the other day I saw silicone baking cups. :blink:

I have a silicone cupcake pan and I LOVE it! Can't imagine how I lived without it. I use liners, so I don't grease the cups. However, if I were making something without liners I would definitely grease them. Though, now that I think about it, if I have a cupcake that overflows out of the liner, it comes right off the sheet, so maybe you wouldn't need grease. I dunno. Either way, they're worth the money.

i have a silicone 9x5, 8x8, sheet and bundt pan.

i do not have the cookie tins because i have a nice one already, and since i use cups anyway, i don't really worry about it sticking. i love them.
