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.

    • You are sick.  Depression and anxiety are symtoms of celiac disease (and many other illnesses).  It is hard now to look forward and imagine a great life, but it is possible.  I think you are already in the thick of the grieving process right now.  Reaching out to this forum can be very healing emotional (it is not just all common sense advice about gluten-free food!).  I did not say not to exercise, but to do it gently.  This is not the time to train for a marathon or triathlon!   The SCD Lifestyle site....it is all about the money.  Seriously.  They are selling a book. 
    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.
