Silicone Bakeware

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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 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.

    • Hi there,  I eat a very clean unprocessed diet, and was this way before I was diagnosed with celiac. The most processed my foods get is just having two pieces of toast in the morning. Before I was diagnosed with celiac they had me monitoring my blood sugars, but did not seem to think it was diabetic. I will definitely talk to my doctor about vitamin deficiencies and hope he will take it more seriously!  Thank you for the prompt feedback!
    • I understand the link.   I’ve gotten sick from Frito products that are labeled gluten free.  I called and spoke with them on their processes, they “clean” the lines.  I won’t buy products that are ran on shared lines/“cleaned”.  It’s not worth it.  
    • This could be related to nutrient deficiencies such as multip B-vitamins, magnesium, primarily with some others to consider like vitamin D E and iron. But my concern with be diabetes also, it is a fact that diabetes and celiac go hand in hand often. AND if you eat gluten free processed food often you are eating a ton more starch, carbs, and sugars then you need to which could make this worse. I would really suggest seeing a doctor about this as it seems to be a really serious issue. Discoloration is a blood flow issue normally.....this could lead to complications and loss/amputation of you your extremities. Again my main concern would be diabetes, if you want to help keep track of this get a glucose monitor from walmart and check you blood glucose before and a at the 30, 60, 90, 120min mark after a meal for a week monitor the results and see about taking them to a doctor. If your seeing large spikes and drops between and after meals this could be a sign of something. (again observational data not a doctor here  but info to help). You can try supplementing B-vitamin complexes and magnesium also help but PLEASE talk to a doctor on this issue. Change to a whole foods only diet for awhile and see about cutting out processed foods, sugars, and going easy on the carbs.
    • Celiac disease is a bit like a chameleon in symptoms with over 500 known combinations (someone else said this number). It being a autoimmune disease it would not be unheard of it effecting the lymph nodes and in fact early on my first signs of a CC was tightening and swelling of the ones in my neck. I have not noticed this with my past few encounters in the past 2 years. But as I said it is a chameleon in symptoms. You will need to be eating gluten daily for about 12 weeks for the celiac blood panel which is the standard for testing with this disease. And keep eating it for 2 weeks prior to a follow endoscope and biopsy to check for intestinal damage. You can read up more in the link http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Celiac after having dramatic weight loss, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, and a variety of other things. The blood test and biopsy both came back positive so I have been following a strict gluten free diet.  I have been experiencing muscle spasms, frequent face redness all over, and as of lately my toes and fingers have been turning different colours. The most concerning would be my toes as they will go purple. Each toe looks like it has a bruise on it. Is this symptomatic of celiac? I followed up with my family doctor but his only suggestion was to see a dietician, and out I went.  My antibody came back positive, and the titre was high and speckled. Is this related to the celiac? Not much has been explained to me, and I am just trying to understand further! If anyone has any advice, or comments I would be glad to read them!    Thank you
