Is silicone bakeware eco-friendly?
- Yes,silicone bakeware

- I have grown up using silicone pans and love how easy it is to get out however we always still use a non stick spray just in case especially with the old pans. We have never had any problems with silicone pans like any pan metal or silicone you just have to keep an eye on the baking, they don't take as long as what is said on recipes but always turn out perfect

- i was wondering do you use these in regular oven,or do you use in microwave.just got them and never heard of them before.Reading the comments on here,apparently not to many like them.
You use them in either a microwave or a regular oven. They are often flimsy depending on the type, so you may need to place a baking sheet under it for stability when placing or removing from the oven. With silicone bakeware, it's often a hate or love relationship; some love them, many hate them. I still experiment occasionally, but definitely not my favorite type of bakeware either.

silicon muffin tins
- muffin tin is sticky on the very bottom of the tins (counter touching side). I've washed with Dawn, still there and it leaves a residue on my fingers when touching. Like a chemical change. HELP

- I love my square silicon pan. I've used mine for the last four years to bake banana bread͵ brownies͵ etc. and I have had great results. I place it ditectly on the oven rack. I do not oil the pan as it fries the bottom batter making it all hard. Mine doesn't stick and when it is done I just pop the loaf out. The pan was speckled with brown stains after the initial uses but I left it and there hasn't been any additional stains nor is it considered dirty as I've lived in tropical climates and pans mould if dirty. I suggest not to get a thin flimsy one but a thick sturdy one that keeps it shape quite well when handled.

- I have used the muffin pans and absolutely love them. Do NOT place them on a cookie sheet to bake (for stability) the bottom of the muffin does not bake correctly. I clean black spots from drips baked on the silicone with soft scrub but am unable to remove the discoloration from the flat surfaces on top. The interior of the muffin pan which holds the batter does not seem to discolor. I have never used spray or margarine/butter to grease them. They are wonderful for muffins. I have not tried other pan sizes.

How to Clean Silicone Bakeware
- I'm not pleased with my silicone bakeware. On one site it states do not use oil (spray). On another site, it states that the bakeware MUST be FDA approved. The e.how@com is one site(?). I still can't find a site that tells me how to remove the stains. Every other sites tells you something different. I'm getting rid of my set!
Reply: The reason you're finding different information is because silicone bakeware is made by different manufacturers. I found that I have to use oil in mine or the foods will not release. Stick to one of the major brands for best results and check out their FAQ's on the brand site.
