Are Silicone Baking Sheets Non Toxic

This is a question on many consumer's minds, ranging from professional bakers to the occasional home cook. You will also find silicone ice cube trays, rolling pins and all sorts of baking pans.

Silicone bakeware is tolerant of both heat and cold, and can be used in the oven at temperatures up to 428 degrees Fahrenheit. It can go directly from the oven to the freezer, is microwave safe, and easy to clean.

It does not emit fumes of any sort, leach into food, or pose any health risks according to the FDA. If you are concerned about the possibilities of long term use of silicone bakeware, consider confining your use to spatulas, trivets and other items that are not exposed to heat on a consistent basis.

If you do use silicone pans, you should also keep in mind that they should be placed on a firm surface, like a cookie sheet, when baking. Lifting a flexible pan from the oven can leave you with burns and a cake on the floor rather than your table.

It appears that these odors are connected to fillers in the final product, rather than the silicone itself. Keep in mind that silicone cookware has become quite popular and low quality items are available.

While there is no evidence that risks are posed by poor quality silicone cookware, offensive burning smells when baking is enough to make any baker want to avoid these items. With holiday baking coming up and gift season to boot, I’ve been thinking again about the safety of silicone bakeware.

Those that stated otherwise were usually single people in a forum or comments railing about silicone being toxic. The “nonreactive” claim is just based on the fact that silicon (the element) is “inert.” Again, let’s be serious: just because something in nature is fairly stable doesn’t mean I’ll necessarily cook and eat on it.

The oils in silicone, which are very powerful and toxic, may “migrate” from the material, but I can’t find any real data. I do notice an odor or smoking every so often, especially when oil hits the surface (like when roasting pumpkin seeds tossed in Too).

It’s reasonably new, so long-term studies haven’t been performed on cookware that has been exposed to high temperatures over very long periods. All over the Internet, people are basically saying, I can’t find anything dangerous about silicone, so I assume it’s a safe material.” That’s basically what I’ve said over the years, and now I’ve just contributed another article to the vastness of the Internet that says little to nothing about the safety of silicone.

If you want to be very conservative, skip the silicone and stick with glass, cast iron, or stainless steel for cooking and baking and unbleached parchment paper if you need something flexible. It doesn’t take more energy to create than glass or mining metal for pots and pans, and it is not toxic to aquatic or soil organisms.

So for the earth, silicone bakeware is a fine choice compared to just about anything else out there, and better than Teflon, which contains chemicals that won’t break down at all. I also swear by my silicone “spoonful” for scrambling eggs in the pan and other stove top cooking.

I found the muffin tin to be a beast to clean, much worse than its metal counterpart. The nonstick claim leaves a lot to be desired on the three-dimensional products, but the mats are still my friend…unless I decide they might be toxic.
