Usage:

  • As a low-taint, non-toxic material, silicone can be used where contact with food is required. Silicone is becoming an important product in the cookware industry, particularly bakeware and kitchen utensils.
  • Silicone is used as an insulator in heat-resistant potholders and similar items; however, it is more conductive of heat than similar less dense fiber-based products. Silicone oven mitts are able to withstand temperatures up to 260 °C (500 °F), allowing reaching into boiling water.
  • Molds for chocolate, ice, cookies, muffins and various other foods.
  • Non-stick bakeware and reusable mats used on baking sheets.
  • Other products such as steamers, egg boilers or poachers, cookware lids, pot holders, trivets, and kitchen mats.
