In recent years, colorful, cute and diverse silicone kitchenware has rapidly become popular. Despite their high prices, they are still very popular. Today, baking molds have become an essential baking product for every home, but can you put silicone baking molds directly in the oven?
Due to the good thermal conductivity of metals, baking molds for alloy materials have always been the mainstream.
In recent years, baking pan molds made of silicone materials have gradually entered the home. Some consumers who are skeptical of silicone consider silicone to be a type of plastic. How to put plastic in a furnace at high temperature? Silicone bakeware molds are mainly vulcanized and molded from silicone rubber raw materials.
They are favored by people for their great functionality. Among them, the raw material silica gel is a component derived from natural sand and stone, which is non-toxic and tasteless, and is harmless to the human body. Secondly, the product has strong high temperature resistance.
When making silicone cake molds, the vulcanization temperature can reach 200 degrees Celsius (vulcanization is one of the production processes for producing silicone products, which can improve the hardness and heat resistance of the product), so it can be used within 230 degrees Celsius during use. Baking process. Therefore, every consumer can confidently buy their favorite silicone cake molds and put them in the home oven.
Also, choosing a silicone cake mold in the oven can be a problem for consumers. Here are some suggestions for you. The first is product safety, the selection of cake mold materials and the production process.
Whether the silicone product manufacturer has appropriate environmental monitoring and secondary vulcanization treatment. The second is the appearance quality of the product and its deformation strength. Due to the long time and high temperature baking required, the material of the cake mold should be made of tensile and tear-resistant materials, and whether to use food-grade silicone.
Silicone kitchenware is a processed product. It is difficult to determine if the composition is completely silica gel or if other chemicals have been added. So, it's best to make sure that this silicone cookware has a "QS" mark when you buy it, and don't blindly pursue aesthetics and cheapness.
