Review of Silicone bakeware

Posted on | November 27, 2007 | 4 Comments

Silicone bakeware
Easy to clean and use, non stick, makes baking banana bread so much easier than using standard metal loaf tin.


I bought a silicone loaf pan on impulse about a year ago in Dunnes Stores. It cost €6 and it looks similiar to this one:

silicone loaf "tin"

I have found it excellent. Really easy to use, no need for greasing the tin or awkward lining the tin with greaseproof paper. The banana bread mixture now just pours straight in and the loaf is removed by turning the “tin” upside down, once its cooked. No hassle.

It is openproof to 230 degrees C. Its freezer and microwave proof and dishwasher safe.

The only very minor disadvantage is, it is obviously not as rigid as a metal loaf tin so the banana bread is more rectangular shaped when its cooked.

This minor change, is definitely more than compensated for, with the convenience of using this silicone loaf pan.

    I’m glad you had a good experience. I bought the T-Fal one and couldn’t get over how everything had a plastic-y taste to it. I actually threw it out… couldn’t stand that it altered the taste! Maybe I need to try Dunnes!

    Or maybe I just have a crap sense of taste but I haven’t noticed any plastic taste thankfully. But I only ever use it to bake banana bread which has a strong taste as it is.

    As you can see, I’m a lazy cook, anything that makes my life easier, I latch onto. I really hated the rigmarole of lining the baking tin so this bakeware is ideally suited to me!

    I bought a silicon bread pan, but silly me sprayed the pan with ‘spray-’n-cook’ before baking banana bread. Now I cannot get my pan clean, the ‘spray-’n-cook’ made a glue like mess on the pan. What am I to do?
