View Full Version : silicone bakeware

I'm seriously considering a small, American Harvest dehydrator. I know it's not my first choice...but finances.....anyway. I found this silicone bakeware at Walmart, the pieces were large (like for an oven) but had mini muffins, and mini loaf pans...I thought maybe I could cut these apart, and use the smaller pieces in a small dehydrator, therefore getting more use out of a smaller appliance (knowing that a small dehydrator won't hold a large bowl or pan for heating) Would that be useful...say for heating soups, or sauces, and then maybe making small breads....some experienced advice is appreciated. Anybody else use anything like this. It says that they are safe up to 500 degrees.....I figured it was made pretty much out of the same type of material the texflex sheets are made of. I even thought the muffins would make great cookie molds? What else....my wheels are turning.

Oh yeah..if anyone is interested, they also had a ROLL of this material (not sure of the square footage) but it ran just under $10...for 2 rolls...I thought that may be cheaper than buying the other sheets? Just wondering how well it will cut?

I think it's a great idea!
I haven't tried it yet, but Shazzie uses muffin molds/tins in her un-cooking video to make muffins.
Go for it!

I can attest to this -they work very well!

Just to let you know, they are NOT made out of the teflex sheet stuff, but would probably work just fine. Are they less expensive?
My teflex sheets were $3.00 each. for a 16 by 16" piece.
the part I like is I can roll all 9 of them up together and they take up no room.
They can not be used up to 500 degrees though, just so you know.
But we have some of those silicone pot holders, and we love them, I think the muffin tins sound great, good luck, and have fun.
