Bendy-bakeware

Test results for a selection of silicone bakeware from 10 brands priced from $10 to $50

We included, where available, a range of products from each brand - a muffin pan, a cake pan and baking sheet. We also compared their performance to traditional non-stick metal bakeware.

We tested for:

  • Cooking performance – baking a range of treats: sponge cakes and choc-banana muffins in the pans, and foccaccia on the baking sheets.
  • Ease of use – cleaning, storage & versatility, handling and dishwasher use.

How are CHOICE tests different? We buy all the products we test – we don’t accept industry freebies and we don’t take ads. We're non-profit and our work is funded by people like you.

Please note: this information was current as of January 2006 but is still a useful guide to today's market.


Findings:

  • All the silicone bakeware we tested cooked well.
  • Some bakeware is easier to use.
  • Silicone bakeware cools to the touch faster and is easier to store than regular bakeware. It can also go in your dishwasher without rusting.
  • Price isn't an indicator of performance.
