Silicone is a very durable natural rubber product that is made in different shapes. 3D mold makers use food-grade silicone for different kinds of pastry utensils (maryse, spatula, mat), all these silicone accessories are approved by the EEC and can be used without danger for food.
There are hundreds of silicone mold sizes and shapes; round silicone mold, rectangle silicone mold, square silicone mold, heart silicone mold, flower silicone mold, because this flexible mold is very easy to handle. In the Cook First pastry mold range you will find a silicone cake mold for every occasion such as the dessert mold or the ice cream mold for example. One of the biggest advantages of using silicone is how it withstands extreme variations in temperature level (hot or cold).
undoubtedly withstand both cold and hot as modern silicone is guaranteed to withstand temperatures ranging from -60C to +230C. Obviously silicones have a remarkable tolerance to heat and are never placed directly over an open flame or burner. In general, it's often a good idea to store silicone molds on a cookie sheet or perhaps in an oven instead of placing them directly on the wire rack, which helps you avoid spills. Same recommendation for silicone kitchen utensils .
Other grade of silicone
is that it is an excellent insulator, which means that it cools immediately after being cooked evenly. While pans like metal retain their heat, silicone baking sheets and mats are cool enough to handle within minutes of taking them out of the oven.
When using a silicone mold , you can of course bring your baked goods directly from the oven to the table, making them even more appetizing in their baking molds and avoiding dirtying another serving dish to unmold your cake. You can also try serving a simple quiche or in your round cake pan or a panna cotta in your silicone muffin cups .
Using silicone baking pans helps reduce calories without having to choose your favorite recipes, as food grade silicone is generally a natural non-stick. There's no need to use fat or oil when making your homemade recipe, even with the more decorative pans with sharp corners or intricate designs. It is therefore unnecessary to butter the silicone molds .
Thanks to the texture of the flexible silicone mold, it is possible to take a cake out of its mold without it being crumbled or with broken edges. Unmolding your baked cakes is as easy as pie. No more struggling to drag a toothpick around the edges of the mold and risk ruining the recipe. 3D silicone molds allow you to make elegant cakes, because you can take out your desserts in two simple movements. Also, gently pushing and flexing the sides and bottom of the molds tends to help and give the 3D mold a bit of twisting and bending to easily achieve intact desserts.
In the past, kitchens had rusty metal and stubborn stains, but silicone kitchen utensils are much easier to maintain and also cleaner than Pyrex or metal. The silicone is dishwasher safe, and simply rinse the mold with warm soapy water. No need to use abrasive sponges for cleaning if you don't want to leave your cookware marked with scars.
Stainless steel baking pans do not rust but seem to have only one limited function in your kitchen whereas silicone baking pans may have much more to do than cakes and pastries. These molds transform all kinds of textures into non-food craft and artistic products and in particular the silicone molds can be used as soap molds for example.
You can try all your homemade recipes, from making chilled desserts like cold entremets or flavored cream ice creams to chocolates. For example, the silicone muffin mold is great for preparing savory desserts or mini desserts in individual portions or even for preparing frozen seasoning portions in the freezer. The cheap silicone mold is a good investment that cannot break when falling. The little pods usually make it incredibly easy to pop out each of the squares, depending on your needs. However, you may need to keep in mind these few maintenance and cleaning precautions, because it is obvious that silicone has an advantage over pyrex or metal.
