Default Plastic bakeware?

After speaking of the mini muffin tins, I see that our local mega
grocery store chain (Jewel) has a display of bake ware that looks like
plastic (nylon, or?). Very flexible. Muffin pans, flat "cookie
sheets,", bread pans, round bowls for unknown use -- plus sleeves for
pan handles and "grabbers" (look like claws) I guess in place of pot
holders to hold things from the oven.
..
Has anybody used these things? Are they worth it? The muffin trays
and bread pans are so flexible, I would guess you have to set them on
sheet pans to get them in and out of the oven to keep them from
flexing and spilling. They are priced at, mostly, five dollars each.
Is there any advantage in these versus getting basic aluminum pans?
I'm planning for large quantity batch baking.
..
TIA

The only real advantage that I see in flexible silicone bakeware is that it
doesn't take up much room to store. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I don't have
problem with things sticking with conventional bakeware. The flexible stuff
is offered in limited sizes and shapes, so you don't have many choices. If
you want something unusual you have to get the professional lines and then
the price is more like $35 - $50, not $5.

Thanks all, for your replies. These are not thin, but fairly thick. In
going back and reading the labels, an advantage sounds like you can,
say for the muffins, invert and push out the bottom, almost turning
each one inside out. Perhaps same for the loaf pan.

I think I'll try one of each, while the sakle continues, and then go
back for more if they are a success. The flat sheets for cookies, if
they just line a metal sheet, I see no need for. my non-stick sheets,
spatula, and even parchment paper work just fine. It's just that I
tend to ruin many muffins or breads trying to coax the finished product
out. Tyhey also have a nylon/silicon (?) basting brush that looks kind
of klunky. But hey, I'll try it.
