There is a lot of focus on cutting down the fat in our daily diets. But who wants to lose the flavor if that means cutting out the taste? There is an easy way to reduce your fat intake in baking without having to alter the recipe. Nonstick silicone bakeware can help you reduce your fat intake. Nonstick silicone bakeware means that you don’t have to put butter, shortening or grease on your sheets or pans to make food easy to remove.
Silicone products for baking began with small silicone mats. These silicone mats fit perfectly on a cookie sheet and allow you to bake cookies without having to grease the sheet or worry about your bottoms burning. These tiny mats proved to be a great success, and it was difficult for stores to keep stock.
Manufacturers began to explore making silicone bakeware as a result of the growing popularity of these mats. They started making spatulas, spoons, and whisks that could withstand high temperatures and could be used with nonstick cookware without worrying about the coating being damaged. Silicone utensils are the best choice for candy making and any other project that requires a hot, sticky liquid to stir.
Silicone potholders were also introduced by kitchen supply companies. They can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees and are ideal for protecting your skin from burns when you remove a hot dish from the oven. They don’t conduct heat like a traditional potholder, and are easier to clean and maintain than regular potholders. Silicone baker’s mitts were a hit with home canners. They could reach into boiling water to take out a hot jar of food after it had been processed. These potholders double as lid grippers, making it easy to open jars.
Kitchen experts saw the potential in silicone in everyday baking when it was introduced to them in the form of pot holders, baking mats, and utensils. Brightly colored silicone was soon available for almost every type of bakeware, which could previously be found in stainless, aluminum, glass or stoneware. There was an explosion in the number of bakeware products that were sold in stores, including muffin tins and bread loaf pans as well as cake pans and pie pans. Specially designed cake pans are the most popular. These allow you to create cakes in a variety of shapes, from pumpkins to roses. You can even make your own fancy-shaped cakes with mini cake pans.
Silicone bakeware has seen a huge rise in popularity as more cooks realized the many benefits it offers. Silicone pans are easy to use and produce amazing results. Silicone pans are easy to use and you don’t need to grease or flour them. This saves you a lot of calories and fat grams. Silicone is flexible and can be bent and twisted to make breads and cakes pop out easily. Baked goods don’t need to be forced out of their pans. They retain their shape so you won’t see many broken or split cakes.
Silicone is the perfect material for baking. It cooks evenly. Silicone distributes heat evenly so that you don’t end up with cakes that are too brown around the edges but not done in the middle. It cools quickly, so your food will stop burning or drying out after you take it out of the oven.
Silicone is nonstick so cleanup is easy. All that is needed to clean your silicone bakeware is a little soap and water. It is nonporous so it doesn’t retain any odors from foods you prepare. It can be used in all kinds of cooking, from the oven to the freezer to the table. It is easy to store once you have finished cleaning it. Its flexibility allows you to bend, twist, bend, fold, or mash the item so that it fits in even the smallest drawers or cabinets.
You should try silicone bakeware if you have not. It is both durable and flexible, which will surprise you.
