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.
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.
Aluminum bakeware is the most popular option as it resists warping, however the shiny texture of aluminum makes it unsuitable for browning. Aluminum Foil comes handy while making pizzas and over oven treats. These should be handled with care so as to retain their original shape.
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.
If you are after professional bakeware, you have to look for the tools that could help you in every baking process. You should get a square pan for use with pastries, desserts, casseroles and breads. You should also look for a cookie sheet to make cookies. In addition to cookies, the cookie sheet can be used to bake pizza and pastries. You can also roast vegetables and other big food items.
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.
Silicone bakeware can withstand high temperatures without absorbing the heat. This allows foods to cook evenly throughout the pan. Other bakeware can inhibit easy distribution of heat and cause foods to burn in some sections of the pan while remaining undercooked in other areas. Bakeware made with silicone can also go right from the freezer to the oven without any cooking problems.
