Can I bake silicone molds?
Yes. our molds is food grade compliant up to 395 degrees F. This enables you to either bake food, polymer clay, or any other type of material in the mold without harming it.
If you plan to use the mold for food, do not use it with any other material before putting your food product into the mold to eliminate any possibility of contamination.
Our molds are a very good insulator of heat, so it is highly recommended to preheat your mold as you preheat your oven to provide a more even bake process when baking food. Otherwise, your food product may cook on top but because of the thickness of your mold, the heat will take much longer to reach the food in the mold cavity and make for an unevenly cooked product.
