GET TO KNOW YOUR SILICONE
 
Can be used hot and cold uses
Faster
Non stick
Less fat - you only need to grease a mould the first time you use it for baking.
Sweeter - adding sugar will not cause your baked goods to stick.
Easy clean
Durable
Heat resistant to 260°C
Food approved
Oven safe - in both conventional and microwave ovens.
Freezer safe
Shock proof - can go from the freezer right into the oven, and vice versa.
 
 
 
Before you use a silicone mould for the first time, you must wash the mould thoroughly in warm soapy water and grease the inside of the mould with a little oil or melted butter. (No need to grease the mould after its first use.)

Larger moulds should be placed directly on the oven racks (not on a baking tray) to allow better circulation of heat around the mould, whereas small moulds may be placed on a baking sheet for stability.

Only use wooden, plastic or Teflon-coated tools without sharp surfaces.

Cooking temperatures are exactly the same as those used for traditional metal moulds.
Shallower moulds will bake faster than larger moulds, so check frequently for doneness on first use.

Shallow moulds, the most commonly available, work best, as silicone does not distribute heat evenly.
In a convection oven, place on the middle shelf.
In a traditional oven, place moulds on a lower rack.
Keep the oven temperature around 150°C and bake for longer, if necessary.
Foods that are baked in these moulds usually come out with shiny surfaces.

Rinse moulds with warm water and a soft sponge between batches and after use.
If needed, sponge clean with some liquid detergent, then rinse thoroughly.
After washing and before refilling with another batch, allow the bakeware to dry in the oven at 150°C for 2-3 minutes.

Never put an empty mould into the oven; if there's not enough pastry to fill the last few cavities, pour a little flour into the empty cavities in order to protect them.
Never use silicone moulds under the grill or on a hob.
Never use sharp tools when turning over or removing baked items in the moulds.
Never cut in the moulds.
Never use metal brushes or abrasives to clean your moulds.
 
 
 
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR METAL BAKING TINS
Do not use in a microwave, on a hob or under a grill.
Only use in a dishwasher if the specific item instructions say it is safe to.
Do not allow prolonged contact with any ingredients high in sugar or acid content – may cause corrosion.
Do not use abrasive cleaning methods – if tin will not wipe clean, please allow to soak for 20 minutes in warm soapy water.
Only use wooden, plastic or Teflon-coated tools without sharp surfaces.
In a convection oven, place on the middle shelf.
In a traditional oven, place moulds on a lower rack.
Keep the oven temperature around 180°C and bake for longer, if necessary.
We would recommend that shaped tins be placed on a baking sheet for stability.
Ensure tins are thoroughly dry before putting away and consider using layers of kitchen towel roll between tins if stacking, to avoid surface scratching.
 
 
PLASTIC ICE MOULDS
Not suitable for use in an oven, microwave, grill, dishwasher or on a hob.

Only suitable for freezing.
May discolour with use of acidic or sugary ingredients.
