Frequently Asked Questions

Silicone is a synthetic material derived from the natural element Silicon (#14 on the Periodic
Table). Silicone can be formed into a flexible, rubberlike, toxin free material that has non-stick
properties, and can withstand extremely high temperatures.
All of our products are made of FDA approved Silicone and be used in the following appliances:
- Microwave Safe
- Oven Safe (Up to 450° F)
- Freezer Safe
- Dishwasher Safe
- Do not use in broilers or air fryers as these appliances can exceed the 450° F limit of our products.
- Please wash and dry any NEW product before using it for the first time.
- Make sure your Silicone product is clean before using.
- Wash your Silicone product soon after it has been used.
- If handwashing: clean with a high quality grease-cutting dish soap and hot water.
- Avoid using abrasive sponges or brushes.
- If using the dishwasher: use non-abrasive dish detergent.
- Avoid direct contact with open flames. Open flames can vary in temperature greatly and can exceed the 450° F limit of our products.
- Avoid using sharp instruments. Because of its “rubber-like” properties, our Silicone products are not scratch resistant. We suggest to avoid using sharp objects on our products.
- Even though Silicone bakeware is non-stick, we suggest using a greasing spray to evenly grease your Silicone bakeware before putting it into the oven. This will make your items come out of the molds more easily and intact. It will also make cleaning easier later.
- Sometimes smells from baking can linger on Silicone. Soaking your Silicone products in hot soapy water for 15 minutes is the best way to clean them. This will also help release any trapped oils that are still attached to the surface of the Silicone.
- Even though our Silicone bakeware can go directly on to your oven rack, we suggest using a cookie sheet to place your Silicone bakeware on. This will make it easier to place and remove your bakeware from the oven, as well as avoid spilling. Because oven racks have large spaces, our molds may be too small to be placed onto an oven rack without bending.
- Sometimes Silicone can stain, we suggest creating a paste with baking soda over the stain and using a non-abrasive sponge to scrub.
