Why Use Silicone Bakeware

September 15th, 2010

First of all lets dispel or should I say misspell a common problem. There is a difference between silicone and silicon. Silicon is a natural chemical element on Earth, primarily as a major component of sand. Silicone is a man-made substance made from silicon and other chemical. A common form is a rubber like plastic used in kitchen aid because of its heat resistant properties. So you are unlikely to find any silicon bakeware.

Silicone bakeware are those brightly coloured tins, containers and kitchen canisters in the local kitchen store , but many of us traditionalist are wary of change and still prefer a glass metal or ceramic cooking container. However don’t be deterred by change as there are some good reasons to buy silicone bakeware. These are:

Light Weight And Portable

Silicone is light weight in comparison to other cookware which is a definite advantage when lifting that cake into the oven or if you have to travel with your cookware.


It cannot be chipped or cracked and doesn’t wear like rubber. They can be used in the microwave and cleaned in the dishwasher and you never have to worry about dropping them.

Easy To Store

Because silicone can be moulded into intricate shapes they can come in various shapes and colours. From muffin cases to cake moulds you should be able to find one that fits your needs. Because these are light and flexible they are easy to store even in high awkward to reach cupboards.

Doesn’t Stay Hot

Silicone doesn’t conduct heat in the same way glass, metal or ceramic so it doesn’t take long before you can touch the silicone bakeware.

If you are still not convinced with the benefits of silicone bakeware then you should try to experiment slowly. A perfect item to first trial is the silicone spatula. Heat resistant and available in many colours and sizes silicone is the perfect material for such a kitchen implement. Unlike rubber spatula’s they don’t wear or need trimming. I am sure once you have experiment with such a device you will soon eagerly want to try a silicone bakeware set.
