Cool, but there's a learning curve

By 

from Southfield, MI

Comments about Silicone Solutions Baking Pans:

When I first saw these silicone baking dishes I thought they were genius. My biggest problem with baking anything is trying to get it out of the pan. I was a little nervous about putting the silicone in the oven, I know in my head it's not supposed to melt, but it looks like rubber and rubber totally melts!
Filling the rubber pan is tricky. I guess if I and thought ahead better, it might have gone better but I was excited and I guess I wasn't thinking as well as I should have been. Make sure to place the silicone pan on a regular metal baking sheet. Otherwise moving it with the batter in it will be somewhere between difficult and disastrous.
After my initial fumble, things went much more smoothly. Removing the cake was easier than with a metal cake pan, though not as easy as I had hoped. You've got to really let the cake cool down first or sticking is still a major issue.

Ease of Cleaning
Cleaning is super simple. The silicone washes up really easily.

Good, but leaves a weird crust

By 

from Arlington, TX

Comments about Silicone Solutions Baking Pans:

I do like my silicone baking pans because nothing will stick to it but there are a few problems that I have with it. The Silicone Solutions Baking Pan will often leave a weird outer crust on my loafs of bread that don't look natural. It has a plastic like shine to it and I don't feel comfortable presenting that to my guests. You also don't get the traditional crust that you get either so I don't really like that. I guess a good thing would be that if you don't care about what it looks like, then this silicone baking pan would be good for you. I don't have to oil and flour it; all I do is pour the batter in and bake it. Cleanup is easy too but sometimes it's a bother to clean up because the baking pans are slippery to handle in the sink. It's hard for me to store because it's so flimsy and I don't like stacking it under my pots and pans because I'm afraid it might get deformed. Overall, if you're looking for something to make your life easier but don't care about how your food looks, I would recommend this.

Not my favorite pan

By 

from Peoria, AZ

Comments about Silicone Solutions Baking Pans:

These pans are flexible and you have to be careful when moving fresh baked items from the oven to counter. They are hot and flex so it makes for a broken cake. I ended up sliding a medal cookie sheet under it so it did not break. The dough did not seem to raise evenly but I am not sure if it was me or if the pan was to full.

Performance
I really haven't found any use for this pan that I thought would be great. It does store easily but it is difficult to move if you have batter in it and trying to keep it level. If it is something you are cooking that has juice like meats that flexing could be bad news if it spilled. After trying several solutions like using a cooling rack, cookie sheet I have given it up as It was more work than help.

Ease of Cleaning
Does clean up pretty easy but the heat seems to discolor the pans and I could not clean it to where it looked good as new. I was disappointed.

Durability
I don't see why it would not last unless you damage the silicone itself. I quit using mine so don't really know how long it would hold up.

Design
These come in a variety of pans and they undoubtedly work. I just didn't find they worked for me but I love all of the different sizes and shapes.

Doesn't Stick
Actually I had to use the spray to keep it from sticking but don't think they claim to be non stick but the spray did stick somewhat and discolor the pan.

Silicone cake pan - does it do what they say it does?

By 

from southern, NC

Comments about Silicone Solutions Baking Pans:

I saw a deal on some silicone cooking pans online, and I was interested.

The idea is that the silicone is soft and just slips off baked goods like cakes, muffins, and cookies. If you've ever had food stick and ruin your presentation, this should be appealing.

My order came in, and the pieces remind me kind of like the swimming caps the boys have but just a bit thicker. I was not sure these would work. But, the pound cake pan which might also be called a bundt cake pan was fabulous.

To put the silicone cake pan to the test, I made chocolate squash cake. Yes. It is good. It's also very moist with the squash, so it would be one that might be likely to stick.

The directions say to spray the silicone pan with something like Pam the first time and also if you use a dish washer to clean the cake pan. That kind of seasons it, and I just do that anyway even if I don't have to.

I was quite impressed with the silicone pound/bundt cake pan. I have the muffin pan and cookie pan, but I had those in mind for gifts. I was not real impressed with the cookie pan. It is not pan but a sheet, and it would need something under it as it is floppy. I may end up keeping that and using it and can get back on that. I just thought it would be firm enough that it would hold cookies, but it is not.

As far as the cake pan in silcone though, I really like that. My squash cakes this summer have been coming out really nice. You can see the shape. No sticking at all. Very impressive. I just let the cake cool for 10 to 20 minutes like I would in any other pan, and it pops right out.

A new innovation is baking

By 

from Mount Prospect, IL

Comments about Silicone Solutions Baking Pans:

I was skeptical at first to use silicone to bake with but when I got a set for christmas, instead of giving them back to the store I figured, why not, I can try something new.  I like how they cook and the fact that I do not have to deal with so much extra clutter.  All the pans I have now take up a lot of space and these allow for a bit of conformity in the little space I have to store my baking dishes.

Another great feature about using silicone is that it stops baking when you remove it from the oven so you can let it sit on the counter while the food cools a bit.  Using other materials like glass and metal take a while for the pan to cool, so you don't really want to leave the food in it because it keeps cooking.

Let it cool before you remove

By 

from Bakersfield, CA

Comments about Silicone Solutions Baking Pans:

I received a set of silicone baking pans for Christmas last year.  They are red in color.  I baked a cake using the cake pan a few months back and it worked well.  Last week I used the muffin pan and was disappointed.  I didn't realize that the cornbread muffins would have to be completely cool before they are removed.  They stuck inside the pan and only half of the muffin came out.  Next time I will use the paper cups so I can enjoy a "hot" cornbread muffin.

Also, cleaning isn't easy.  They are so flexible that they are hard to remove the baked on mess.
