Silicone bake ware?

Sorry if I sound stupid, but I need to know, can you use this bake ware in a gas oven?

Hi Sammy

Yes, you can use silicone bakeware in a gas oven.  Just make sure that you stand it on a baking sheet (for stability, nothing else), and use as normal bakeware  thumbsup

Re: Silicone bake ware?

Agreed. Have an electric oven, not a gas. Have just re-read the instructions and they are fine up to 240C.

It's on the instructions (of mine) but Olivia makes a good point. Stand it on a baking sheet before you put it in the oven only because they are a bit "flippy floppy" in comparison to metal-ware. The metal sheet (no need to preheat) minimises the risk of spillage when putting in, pulling out.

Happy baking:)

I bought a bunch of silcone jamie pans (came in brown) and kitchenaid ones (blue and red) I HATE it. Yes stuff turns out nicely without sticking but it is too darn floppy

Re: Silicone bake ware?

I am not a particular fan of them either. For the same reason. Have a loaf pan (can't say "tin" can I?) and the long sides are never straight after baking. The loaf is never rectangular. Went back to metal.

But I loved my baking sheet cover (until husband cut pizza ON it........)

I have a flat tray liner fron Kitchenaid and some muffin pans that were from Ikea ... I don't realy like the stuff very much , however the flat tray liner does have its uses..... My daughter tends to use it when she has her mega biscuit making sessions.

Susanne, it could be "tin" but it would be old, your cake "tins" are probably steel or aluminium rather than tin.

I know, but for metal saying "baking tin" still feels less odd than calling a wobbly rubber (silicone) thing "baking tin"... whistle  whistle

Re: Silicone bake ware?

I have a square baking "tray" in silicone, and want to get some more as they're so easy to clean properly!  I must confess to preferring to use the more traditional baking tins, but currently I operate 2 baking cupboards so that I don't cross-contaminate any foods - with the silicone tray I can just turn it completely inside out and reach all the corners  thumbsup

Re: Silicone bake ware?

Good idea olivia.

I just had a major gluten contamination, not sure where from but i've had to break out the hard core pain killers. It still hurts but i feel better.
