No, there’s no need to grease your mold or mat. Our products’ fiberglass and non-stick silicone will ensure flawless unmolding every time.
Our molds’ components make unmolding a piece of cake, since they’re so flexible and non-stick. Your cake won’t stick and it’ll look like a pro made it. You can unmold while it’s still hot from the oven (wait a moment so you don’t burn yourself though), or after letting the mold cool slightly for more delicate bakes like madeleines and sponge cake. However, don’t wait for your bake to cool fully before unmolding.
Unlike low-cost molds and mats, high-quality Silpat® molds and mats can be safely refrigerated and frozen (they can withstand temperatures down to -40°F). You can unmold them as soon as you take them out of the freezer. The same applies to baking. Silpat® products are oven-safe up to 500°F, but let the mold cool down a bit before handling it so you don’t burn yourself.
Our mats and molds are not made to be used like this. Silpat® mats can be used in the oven. The microwave mat can be used in the microwave, since it’s smaller. Silpat® molds are oven- and microwave-safe if they fit in the oven or microwave. Our mats and molds can also be refrigerated and frozen.
Silpat® mats and molds shouldn’t be used on trays or racks smaller than them, as this may damage them. We also recommend making sure that the product edges aren’t touching the oven walls. We recommend using the Silpat baking tray for optimum performance.
Our mats and molds aren't made for barbecuing. Silpat® mats can be used in the oven. The microwave mat can be used in the microwave, since it’s smaller. Silpat® molds are oven- and microwave-safe if they fit in the oven or microwave. Our mats and molds can also be refrigerated and frozen.
Yes, of course! Professional pastry chefs around the world have been baking with our products for over 50 years. Oven temperature depends on the recipe you’re making, but our products can be used at temperatures up to 500°F. You can even use Silpat® for frozen recipes (down to -40°F).
As the instructions for use say, never place your Silpat® in direct contact with a heat source such as a stove or hotplates. Never use Silpat® at the bottom of an oven, on a grill, or on a barbecue.
Yes, definitely! Simply place your Silpat® microwave mat right in the middle of your microwave or on its turntable. We recommend using the Silpat® microwave mat, since its octagonal shape was specially designed for this appliance.
Your Silpat® product will immediately begin cooling down after you take it out of the oven. Handle with care so you don’t burn yourself. Your tray or rack may remain hot, or at least warm, for some time after baking.
As the instructions for use say, you should never cut your Silpat®, as this could damage the product and fiberglass particles could end up in your food.
Cutting your Silpat® mat or mold will impact your product’s food-safe qualities. We therefore strongly advise you against cutting your Silpat® mat or mold.
As the instructions for use say, never use knives or sharp tools to clean, unmold or cut anything in your Silpat®.
The product you receive may look slightly different. Our molds and mats are actually handcrafted, which is why their color may sometimes be a bit darker or uneven. This in no way affects their efficiency, use, or technology.
