I have several muffin pans, some big, some small but this is the first time I have ever used a silicone pan. I can see so many reason why more and more people are switching to silicone trays and pans because of the many benefits they give compared to the metal ones.
Grazia Silicone 24 Cup Mini Muffin Pan was given to me for evaluation. I was excited to test it because I want to see and experience the results myself and have a comparison to the metals pans that I normally use when I bake.
What I like:
It is made of high-grade silicone which is FDA approved and safe on baking. Silicone is said to be inert so it does not react with food even on high temperatures.
It can stand heat of up to 450˚F which is way hotter than what is required for baking cake, cookies, etc.
It is easily washed and dried. It is also safe for dishwasher.
It bakes fast. I normally bake for 20-30 mins. for the usual chocolate muffin but I baked a wheat bran muffin which was even denser and it baked around 15 mins. tops.
You don’t have to grease it too much. Just a few spritz of my cooking oil onto the silicone mat was enough to keep my muffin sliding off when baked.
It is flexible and easy to pop the muffin out without having to use any utensils to prop the muffin out of the pan unlike when using the metal ones.
It did not emit any weird odor. Some people said that low-grade silicone bakeware sometimes emit odor which maybe the harmful “fillers/chemicals” used. This Grazia Silicone 24 cup mini muffin pan did not have any odor while I was baking.
It will save you money over a long period of time because it is very durable.
It is impervious to rust!
It will not get scratches when you take your muffin out of the pan. Be careful though to use a sharp utensil as it will go through the silicone pan.
What I don’t like:
Nothing. I am very surprised that I find this bakeware better than the metal pans I have gotten used to. I like this product a lot and I may shift to silicone bakewares now.
