- 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.

- We have a well as our water supply and resorted to a front loader to save water. about 9 years ago we bought a whirlpool front loader. I love our whirlpool front loader washer!! However, we too have an occasional foul smell coming from the discharge hose during a rinse cycle. At first I mixxed 32 oz 50% water and bleach solution and poured it down the discharge hose and let it sit there for a few hours, following up with a no-load cycle of hot wash cycle. That would take care of the problem for awhile. Then I tried an oxy clean mix with some undissolved powder in the solution. That seems to work the best. Also pour the powder down the sink/shower drains and garbage disposal. Works great!! I also use oxy-clean in a garden sprayer to kill moss and mold on my roof, decks, driveway, and sidewalks. No! My name is not Billy Mayes. Works great! Give it a try

- I made a banana cake in a silicone ring pan, standing on a metal tray and the whole bottom stuck. I had to gently try to prise it loose with a silicone spatula but it still crumbled. The top was fine but I'm very disappointed.

- These pans are of terrible qltaiuy! They are flimsy and cheap-looking, and the roasting pan arrived with a huge crack/hole in the side, rendering it unusable. They're also tony compared to my other pans of better qltaiuy. I didn't bother returning them; I just decided to use them as long as possible and then purchase new ones from Calphalon. Don't buy these pans! You can get a great set from Calphalon for the same price and the qltaiuy of Calphalon's pans are excellent.

Silcone cake pan
- I just used my silicone cake pan for the first time. it says not to grease, but the cake stuck to the bottom of the pan. I peiced it together but if it was to leave my house I would not be happy. Also seemed to take longer than metal pan. Not sure yet if I am a fan
Definitely metal bakeware...
- Really, those silicone molds are really stupid, sometimes twice as expensive as the metal ones and quite often, they just don't work.

- Some months ago, a cookbook author, whose name I can't remember, went to the manufactureres of this type of bakeware. She was informed that quality silicone bakeware will keep its color if you bend it. On cheap silicone bakeware, you will see white in its makeup when you bend it. I have used this test when shopping and found it to be true. Good quality stuff also seems to be slightly thicker than the poor stuff.

Silicone bakeware love it or leve it
- When I purchased my muffin pans the instructions said to treat as metal/glass, I found that muffins had a uncooked outside. Time now to try without greasing.
