Using Mold For Baking
? Place mold on a baking sheet for greater stability and handling.
? Do not expose rubber to temperatures above 400? F / 204? C.
? Do not subject molds to the broiler.
? Silicone rubber does not distribute heat evenly. Food in shallow molds will bake faster vs.
deep draft molds. Thick sections will retain heat longer than thin sections. Check frequently for
doneness on first use
? Clean molds with soapy warm water and a soft sponge and rinse thoroughly between batches or
prior to storing. You can dry the mold quickly in an oven. Bake for 5 minutes at 300?F / 150?C.
