There are two types of anodized bakeware, silver anodized and hard anodized. Silver anodized bakeware is made of aluminum that has gone through an electro-chemical process to harden its outer layer and give it a scratch-resistant surface that will not rust, peel or blister. Even so, do not use sharp knives to cut food baked in these pans. In hard anodized bakeware, the aluminum is processed for a much longer time to create a hardened surface finish far thicker than silver anodized. Metal utensils other than knives can be used on hard anodized bakeware without damaging the surface. Most hard anodized bakeware has a darkened surface, which affects baking time. Care: Silver anodized and hard anodized bakeware should be washed by hand in hot soapy water and any stuck on food should be soaked in water to loosen. Do not wash in the dishwasher.
Insulated bakeware is made of two layers of metal cushioned by a layer of air, which provides for even baking and browning. Insulated bakeware with a good non-stick coating is the best, since food has a tendency to stick to other forms of this bakeware. Care: Use methods that apply to other metals. For non-stick insulated bakeware, follow the methods for other non-stick bakeware as listed below.
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.
