The first area that silicone bakeware shines is its ability to distribute heat evenly. Other materials absorb the heat from the oven and can cause hot spots and cold spots in the foods that you are preparing. Silicone distributes heat evenly so that your baked goods come out perfect every time. The heat stops as soon as the bakeware is removed from the heat source. Unlike other materials this means that cooking stops when the food is taken out of the oven. Other materials retain the heat and continue to cook your food for several minutes after you take it out of the oven. With a meal cooked in silicone bakeware, this means that the perfection you see when you take your item out of the oven is the perfection that will remain.
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.
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.
