I’m a huge fan of silicone. We saw it everywhere when we lived in Los Angeles and it seemed like nearly every household had sprung for the upgrade or was planning to in the near future! The price kept coming down as it became more popular and acceptable for daily use. Now it isn’t uncommon to see it in kitchens throughout the country in various shapes and sizes. Wait! What exactly are we talking about here? Yeah, I’m a pig.
Back to the subject at hand.
We’ve seen silicone kitchen utensils hitting the stores for the past few years. At first I thought they were a gimmick, but after using a friend’s silicone kitchen gloves I realized this material might change the way we all cook. Then I began seeing candy molds, cake molds, muffin pans – and more. Either they were made of silicone or were silicone-coated. I guess it is time to see if silicone performs as well in the kitchen as it does under a sweater. (Last one, I promise).
We elected to try out some standard muffin pans offered by OvenArt Bakeware and received them quickly through Amazon. As with any new product (silicone or not), it is a recommended practice to give them a quick wash in warm soapy water.
So far this is a typical muffin-in-a-box tutorial, nothing too exciting unless you’re craving sugar right now. Here’s where this silicone muffin pan really made a difference.
But why this particular company? Why not just buy whatever is cheapest? Because not all silicone is the same! OvenArt offers one of the best guarantees in the industry with their OvenArt “Better Muffin” Guarantee for lifetime assurance against defects and performance issues. All of their pans are made with the highest quality 100% pure food-grade silicone. No fillers, stiffeners or chemicals that could leach into your food and no artificial non-stick coatings that you find on your metal pan – you know how horrible those can be. Silicone is naturally non-stick!
Right now you can pick one up on Amazon for 40% off (under $18) with free shipping! Use this exclusive coupon code to get an additional 50% off (6N3L9YEW)! That’s two for $18! Much cheaper than a pair in Los Angeles! Sorry, had one left in me.
Do you have any silicone (cookware) in your kitchen?
