Metal Bakeware is still available, but has lost much of its appeal in the age of the microwave. Though heavy duty metal pieces can still be found in most kitchens, their uses appear limited when compared to stoneware and Pyrex which look nice on a tabletop. Metal can also scratch and rust, unlike these other surfaces, limiting its usefulness.
Teflon Bakeware is still a popular choice for its nonstick properties. The slick coating makes easy work of clean up, and leaves the food intact. Cookies and breads slide right off the coated surface making it ideal to use when a pretty presentation is essential. Extra care must be taken when using and cleaning Teflon so it does not become scratched, which will ruin the nonstick properties of the surface. Metal utensils should be avoided; instead plastic tools must be used to avoid scratching the nonstick coating.
Silicone bakeware is made of a flexible material that can be used in the oven, microwave, and freezer. Silicone bakeware does not absorb heat like other bakeware but allows heat to transfer evenly to the food. The cooking process stops immediately when food is removed from the oven, preventing additional browning of the food. Most importantly, it can withstand temperatures ranging from 40F to 580F.
