Culinary Uses

Silicone is an especially high-heat resistance plastic that can be used for bakeware and is usually safe up to oven temperatures of 450º F. Silicone pans, unless wire reinforced, usually must be supported on an oven proof pan when placed in the oven. You should be aware of the temperature limitations of silicone if using silicone oven mitts, or cooking utensils.
