In my experience, it’s great for making things which are difficult to remove from a mould, but sometimes you get a slightly funny rubbery texture in cakes and muffins.  I prefer metal for making cakes but silicone for most other things.

Depends on the type.  I have an older silicone loaf pan that just blobs out sideways.  My newer one has a metal top frame, so it keeps its shape well.  My 9″ rounds are great, as are my mini muffin ones.

I just made mini muffins in one last week and it was fabulous – you can just pop them right out, no need to use liners.  You do have to put the trays on top of a baking sheet, but that’s no big deal.


I have always used pyrex or silicone, personally, I don’t like the easily scorched exterior from metal.  (Save for springforms, angel food cake, etc).
