The History of Silicone Molds and Silicone Bakeware:
People were intrigued when hearing that using a silicone bakeware set is possible, mainly because of the fact that silicone utensils are flexible, and the idea of having a flexible pan was a bit hard to understand. In fact, these appliances of the use of silicone in the cookware industry come after many other ways of taking advantage of the properties of silicone, such as using it for manufacturing rubber boots.
Even though it was pretty hard to believe in the beginning, people got used to the thought that using silicone bakeware is perfectly safe and effective, and that it was quite a break through, an important step in the cooking industry’s development.
Silicone, as a material for manufacturing bakeware items, comes with a series of characteristics that make it a very good choice:
- Heat resistant: just like a ‘conventional’ pan, a silicone piece is highly resistant to high temperatures and can be used in the oven or on the stove;
- Flexible: unlike bakeware tools manufactured using other materials, the silicone ones are flexible and can thus be more easily stored and washed after use;
- Easy to clean: they can be either manually washed or put in the dishwasher. Hot water and a bit of mild detergent should be more than enough;
- Nonstick: just like the Teflon coated pans, the silicone ones are nonstick and, in plus, they are extremely long lasting due to the fact that they are not sensitive to abrasive materials or metal;
- Molecule structure that makes it ‘immune’ to odors: its non porous consistency and appearance doesn’t keep odors or particles of food;
- Silicone kitchen tools such as baking cups can be kept in the freezer, without being damaged by the extreme temperatures;
- As opposed to metal pans and cups, silicone bakeware elements are not exposed to rust, thus lasting much longer;
- It is not necessary to use any fats (oil, butter or margarine) on the pan. The products you bake won’t stick to the pan when you try to get them out;
- Cakes and bread (or anything else you might cook or bake using silicone pans) are very easy to take out, without paying extra attention to not touching the pan with metal.
Apart from these functional characteristics that recommend silicone as being the best solution when it comes to cookware and bakeware manufacturing, there’s another aspect that needs to be pointed out: the way silicone kitchen items look. They are far catchier than others, and one could say that they are actually pleasant to look at. There’s nothing conventional or boring about them and they fit in perfectly into the rhythm of today’s society, governed by speed and orientation towards the future.
The silicone bakeware sets are products with great customer reviews, and, from what users say, they seem to open new horizons when it comes to cooking. The ‘silicone experience’ is suited for both cooking professionals and novices, for people who cook for a living as well as for those who prepare dishes for pleasure, fun or passion. The truth is that you can make the most out of preparing a home cooked meal by using the best tools on the market: the silicone ones.
When you turn from your old muffin pan, cake pan and the rest of the bakeware equipment to silicone tools, there are some things to be kept in mind, such as:
- Make sure that the flexibility will not work against you! In other words, try to make the baking tool as stable as you can before putting it into the oven. One way to do this is by placing it on a regular cookie sheet;
- Pay attention to the baking time required by different recipes! As you change the bakeware, you have to know that silicone pans interfere with the recommended baking time; this way, preparing your favorite muffin might take a bit longer or might be a shorter process than before.
These two tips for properly using silicone bakeware are not to be interpreted as signs that this new technology comes with its disadvantages. There are people who don’t like using silicone tools because they are used to their old ones, but the fact is that it is much more effective and a lot easier and healthier (you don’t have to use fats at all) to make silicone bakeware sets your kitchen, creative & dinning buddies!
This is why it is highly recommended to check out what these new bakeware solutions have to offer and to accept change and evolution as being completely natural. Just as silicone Molds themselves as part of the Silicone Bakeware Evolution have been around for at least 10 years.
The major stumbling block using these silicone molds to create extraordinary pieces was to find a economical and food safe silicone process to make the silicone molds affordable. Taking flexibility and temperatures into consideration as well as the Icing and or pettiinice that will be used as medium will determine what mold would be suitable .
The exceptional detail that can be derived from using a high quality silicone mould correctly adds a professional touch to any baking experience turning a idea cake into a masterpiece.
