Default Silicone Cookie Sheet Report

I tried out the silicone cookie sheet yesterday using a shake & bake
(homemade mix) chicken. Normally, the chicken sticks to the regular
cookie sheet and I have to soak it. This time, no stickage at all! I
washed the silicone cookie sheet in hot soapy water. There is some
discolouration but this is normal if cooking acid food, according to the
instructions. The discolouration will not affect performance. My only
complaint with silicone bakeware so far is the colours available. The
muffin pan is a deep read that doesn't match my kitchen but is bearable.
The cookie sheet is a neon lime green that almost hurts the eyes! I
wonder why they don't use a more neutral colour. The blue colour of the
silicone utensils is rather nice though.

I saw the burnt orange silicone cookware at a restaraunt suppy store.
The next time I go, I plan to pick up a couple more pieces.

Interesting! Mine passed the pince test since no white indentation
formed. That's good to know.

My muffin pan came with a non-stick sled. This is a wire form in which
the muffin pan sits while filling and baking.

"It also indicated that cheaper versions had fillers in the silicone.
The article
mentioned a "twist test' to determine quality."

There's no reason to figure right away that fillers are a bad thing.
They'll affect the flexability for sure.
I doubt they'll affect the release function or the heat resisitance.

Enjoy the colors. There's enough drabness in life. The random
appearance of that lime
green in your life is probably serendipity.
