What are silicone utensils?

Silicone is a synthetic polymer composed of bonded silicone, oxygen, and additional elements such as carbon and hydrogen

Typically, it is manufactured into a flexible, rubber-like plastic that boasts several attributes beneficial in commercial kitchen settings. Distinguished by its minimal toxicity and superior heat resistance, silicone finds a wide array of applications.

Are silicone cookware safe?

Silicone is safe for use. The FDA has determined that food-grade silicone cookware and utensils do not contaminate food with hazardous chemicals. Silicone molds are abundantly safe and versatile, suitable for creating treats for a continental breakfast or a scrumptious dessert.

Is silicone safer than plastic?

Yes, silicone is generally considered safer than plastic for food-related use. Silicone, a synthetic rubber made from silicon and oxygen, is notable for its heat resistance and lack of toxic chemicals that can leach into food, a concern often associated with various plastics. 

Unlike many plastics, food-grade silicone does not contain BPA (bisphenol A), phthalates, or lead, making it a preferred choice for cooking and food storage. 

Additionally, silicone’s durability and heat resistance allow it to withstand extreme temperatures without degrading, further reducing the risk of chemical leaching. While both materials have their applications, silicone’s stability and non-toxic properties make it a safer option for direct food contact over a wide range of temperatures.

How to clean silicone

Cleaning silicone bakeware can be more straightforward than anticipated! First, ensure your silicone items are dishwasher safe if you prefer an automatic cleaning method. For those who favor hand washing, the following steps will effectively clean your silicone bakeware:

    • Apply grease-cutting dish soap to a soft cloth (avoid using abrasive scrubbers) and turn on the tap until the water is hot.
    • With the water at a very hot temperature, use the soapy cloth to thoroughly wipe down silicone mats, molds, or pans.
  • Rinse everything well under running water.
  • Allow the items to air dry completely. For silicone baking mats, lay them flat to ensure they dry properly.

If remnants of food remain on the silicone, place it in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 to 10 minutes, then soak in hot water to help loosen a
