Insist on quality bakeware and kitchenware as it will last for many years and offers maximum safety while being heated to very high temperatures. Avoid black colored pans as it will get heated very quickly and could burn the items. Also remember that the surfaces of nonstick pans tend to scratch easily. To prevent scratches, you can use parchment paper on non-stick surfaces. Lastly, try thinking outside of the pan: in addition to being used to bake desserts, some bakeware can also be used to cook other types of food in the oven, like fish, chicken and pasta. Bakeware is available in a variety of different materials including aluminum, steel or silicone. Buying a spectacular range of cookware and bakeware is only half your job done. Now you can set up your kitchen in a trendy or traditional theme to gel well with the rest of the home decor.
If you are a home baker and have not explored all the advantages that silicone bakeware has to offer, you are missing out on some wonderful tools that will improve your experience in the kitchen. Many people have already discovered what non-stick silicone can do for your baking and convenience in the kitchen.
Silicone is easily to clean with soap and water, and does not require special tools. It bakes evenly, and releases food well so there is no sticking. The biggest problem with silicone is that it is new, and many still look at it skeptically. It seems less substantial than a bulky stoneware dish, and that makes it seem less worth the price even though the investment will last for years.
When you are following a recipe that requires you to use bakeware, the first thing to determine is whether you have the proper size pans. For instance, your recipe suggests that you use a pan of a certain size, if you do not have it, you can generally substitute a similar size baking pan without any problem. But take the following into account.
Before the first and after each use, wash pan in warm, soapy water or place in the dishwasher. Be sure pan is thoroughly dry. For best results, spray baking surface with non-stick spray. Always place bakeware on level baking sheet for easing positioning and removal from oven, refrigerator or freezer. When baking is complete, remove from oven and place on cooling rack until baked goods are completely cooled. Baking time may vary from traditional metal bakeware and adjustments to time and temperature may be necessary. To remove baked goods, invert pan and apply gentle pressure to the bottom while peeling the pan away. Also great for molding gelatin and ice cream.
Never use scouring pads or abrasive cleaners on the silicone bakeware. For use in oven and microwave only. Never use on stove tops, hot plates or under broiler. Always place bakeware on level surface. Never use knives or other metal utensils on bakeware. Silicone bakeware is heat resistant up to 500 degrees F and can also withstand changes to temperature, such as moving from freezer directly to oven.
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.
