    I use this silicone muffin pan to cook things in the oven. It's supposed to be non-stick, but actually food sticks to it quite a lot.

    Often I can just scrape dried food off with my fingers, but it's gradually building up brown stains and crusts that I can't remove even by scrubbing hard with a scourer. Is there some kind of trick to make it spotlessly clean again?

  • Try to put your silicon tray in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. I had the exact same problem and it worked fine for me.

  • To clean burnt food from silicone bakeware, place the bakeware in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and fill a sink with water. Remove the bakeware from oven using tongs and wipe clean with water and a sponge.

    or maybe try alcohol or a baking soda solution

  • I am starting to collect various piece of Silicone cookware. I would like to find out how others keep their silicone cookware clean or if they try. I put my Silicone cupcake tray into the dishwasher last night and sure enough its does not clean well and feels greasy still. In the past I just wipe it out and learn to ignore the greasy part. But it still makes me wonder. Thanks!

  • I've made many cheesecakes before using a 9" spring-form in a water bath, and have always loved the result. For a party coming up, I'd like to make individual-sized cheesecakes using a muffin/cupcake pan (Including liners). So the question I have is what do I do to the cooking time? All the recipes I've found for muffin-pan cheesecake say about 30 minutes (for example: Cupid's Cherry... for 30 minutes. I don't want to open the oven too often to check (and risk cold-shocking the cakes), so I'd prefer to get some insight. I'm also planning on doing a water-bath below the muffin pan. What

  • I make two or three dozen muffins a day for various customers. I don't like to use disposable cups, so I grease the pan each time. No matter what I do, after a certain time, my muffin pans end up giving a subtle metal taste to my muffins. I was wondering what would be the most appropriate material for a muffin mold to avoid this situation. I'd be ready to pay the price for a pan that would last significantly longer... Bug which one should I choose?

  • I don't have a metal cake pan. I bake my normal cakes and cake layers in a pan with a glass bottom and silicone walls, and cakes which can be expected to leak in a porcelain quiche pan. Sadly, my... easily on the rack. The first doesn't touch the rack with the glass, it touches it with the silicone part, which has a friction comparable to smooth rubber. The porcelain pan has an unglazed bottom, and it is an even bottom, not just a rim like on most porcelain plates, so it is even harder to turn. I mostly try to grip the rim of the pan above the cake to turn. The silicone rim is high enough

  • I recently bought a new meat grinder and they recommend washing it with hot water, drying it completely, and spraying a food grade silicone to prevent the stainless steel parts from rusting. Can I just use a light coating of oil like I do my cast iron to prevent rust?

  • So I attempted my first loaf of bread tonight and I blew it. It's flat and way wide (I tried a free pan loaf). It's about 2 inches tall and very spongy. It has roughly the consistency of a corn muffin. It's vaguely edible, but not very breadlike. So is there anything culinary I can do with this or should I just chuck it on the compost pile?

  • I've been using silicone cake pans in my electric oven for a while and they work great and cakes come out easily and washing then is also very convenient. However I see that there're lots of traditional metal cake pans of the same form in shops and so I guess they are in demand. Why use a metal cake pan and not a silicone one?

  • I make a lot of stir fry in my frying pan, and I hate cleaning it up. Often, if I do not clean the pan immediately, the stir fry residue (little pieces I have failed to scooped out when moving the food from pan to plate) sticks to the bottom, and I need to soak the pan for a while before I can wash it. Is there any danger/argument against lining the inside of the pan with aluminum foil, and cooking the stir fry on top of that foil? That way I would not have to clean the pan after removing my food -- I could just take off the foil and throw it out.
