Glass ovenproof bakeware is made from tempered glass and conducts heat well. It is fairly easy to clean, does not stain, and does not react to acidic foods. Ovenproof glass can be taken from the refrigerator and placed in a hot oven, but when you remove it from the oven, cool it to room temperature before putting in the refrigerator or exposing to water to avoid cracking. Glass bakeware heats faster and holds heat longer than metal, so reduce baking temperatures by approximately 25 degree F from the recipe instructions. Care: Wash with hot soapy water and loosen stuck on food by soaking in warm water. Avoid metal scrapers and abrasive cleaners.
Aluminum is good bakeware material because it is an excellent conductor of heat and so your baking is uniform, but the shiny surface of aluminum bakeware prevents proper browning, as we explained. Aluminum bakeware is durable and will not rust, but go for heavy-gauge aluminum bakeware rather than the thinner variety. The latter may warp when exposed to high temperatures, causing uneven baking. Also remember that aluminum bakeware should not be used to prepare acidic foods because the acid may react with the material to create food that has an off taste. It may also cause more wear and tear than usual. Care: Use hot soapy water for ordinary cleaning of your aluminum bakeware, but for extra cleaning, a nylon scouring pad or special powder cleansers can be used.
A relatively new development in Bakeware is the use of silicone. It is extremely lightweight, unlike heavy stoneware and glass pieces. And you can bend silicone pieces, which makes storage extra easy. It can not chip or rust, and it wo not break, which makes using this safer than stoneware or glass. These properties make silicone extremely long lasting, too.
