Silicone cooker absorbs one of its advantages (coincidentally, one of its disadvantages )- Its flexibility Its success. You can also use this feature to determine whether the product is 100% silicone or contains \"filler\" Like many low quality silicone products \".

All the time and effort you spend on baking the perfect cake (in fact, the reason you originally chose silicone) if the baked goods are stuck in the pan due to these fillers, it can be futile. 100% silicone is heat resistant at more than 300 degrees Celsius (much higher than normal cooking temperature. It does not emit smell, color change or damage its integrity. However, this cannot be said for the filling material. In limited studies, silicone is not at any risk to use or the environment, but who knows what other materials are left in non-100% silicone products? Especially under the conditions of heating, cooking ingredients, food acid, etc. . .

The silicone is perfect for storing food in the refrigerator, and also great for cooking in the oven, which goes beyond other materials by absorbing the impact of different temperatures without any physical damage. Other materials may be distorted or deformed when subject to excessive temperature changes, and silicone does not.

No matter how long the utensils sit in the pan, they keep the cool touch! Silicone does not degrade over time. Unlike wood, it is not rusted or dyed by food pigments and is the perfect choice for cooking utensils. It has the same sanitary benefits as stainless steel, but the thermal conductivity is reduced. Easy Storage - Due to its flexibility, it can be folded or squeezed into a narrow or confined space, and because of its soft surface, it will scratch or damage other products in the same storage space.

Silicone is a synthetic rubber, a product specially formulated to be non-stick, designed to smoothly release baked goods without baking fat lubrication such as oil or oil spray. Manufacturers of popular silicone cookware brands such as KitchenAid and Wilton state that their products do not require oil for non-stick surfaces. Of course The adhesive properties of silicone can be associated with the manufacturing quality and the materials used in production. While silicone cookers and bakers proved to be effective when releasing food, they are not foolproof every time. In the January 10, 2007 edition of The New York Times, Silicon zone owner Michael Karyo said, \"if any silicone manufacturer says that you don\'t have to oil the pan anyway, they don\'t tell you the truth, because baking fat does not adversely affect silicone in any way, there is no harm in spraying spritz silicone cookware with oil spray before use. While you don\'t have to use oil on the surface of a non-stick silicone cooker, the expert chef recommended by Marianne burrose, food and beverage editor of The New York Times Grease the silicone baking tray with butter, oil or oil spray to ensure easy release of baked goods and other dishes.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that basic elements in silicone cookers are generally considered safe even when used in foodgrade contexts. But the first silicone cooker (silicone spatula) did not start appearing on store shelves until ten years later, and the FDA did not do any follow-up The study determined whether the silicone would ooze out of the cooker and had the potential to pollute the food. As far as Canada is concerned, Health Canada maintains that food- Is silicone cooker safe? In the short term, cooking with silicone seems to be safe, and there are no signs of the opposite of the potential problems initially discovered. Cooking does not produce toxic smoke or gas within the recommended temperature range, and silicone does not degrade or decompose. No reaction was found with any food ingredients or cooking additives.
