First off, did you know silicone molds are safe and durable for the freezer, refrigerator, oven, microwave, and even dishwasher? So, that gummy mold you bought? We’ve seen our creative customers use it for more than just homemade gummies. They’ve made frozen ice cubes and yogurt bites, tasty chocolate candies, scented wax melts, butter pats for a themed party, cute cupcake toppers, and even fun treats for their pets. 

Benefits of Silicone Molds

There are a lot of advantages with using silicone molds, and some of our favorite reasons are because they’re: 

  • Naturally non-stick 
  • Easy to clean 
  • Flexible so you can pop your creations out
  • Easy to store & lightweight, simply stack or bend them to save space 
  • Safe to use over a wide range of temperatures, plus they cool quickly from the oven!
  • Durable so you don’t have to worry about rust or any shattering
  • Environmentally-friendly, so you can reuse it over and over! 
  • Delightfully colorful with fun shapes 

Tips on How to Use Silicone Molds 

If you're just starting to learn about how to use silicone molds, we've learned some helpful tips & tricks along the way: 

  • Before first use, wash your products with warm soapy water or pop them into the dishwasher to clean 
  • Silicone molds are naturally non-stick, but we like to coat them with non-stick cooking spray sometimes especially if the mixture or ingredient used is sticky (there is no need if using tempered chocolate) 
  • Silicone can withstand temperatures between -40 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, which means they can be placed in the oven; but, they’re not invincible! Make sure you don't place products directly on any heat source like a grill, open flame, burner or stove top
  • Silicone is flexible, so putting your silicone molds on a cookie sheet or cutting board will make it easier to move them from one place to another
  • Don’t use sharp objects on the silicone! You wouldn’t want to accidentally cut or pierce through your molds

Once you're ready to clean your silicone molds, simply wash them in the dishwasher or let them soak in warm soapy water. After you've let them soak for a bit, rub away any residues, rinse with water, and dry on the dish rack. They’re now clean and ready to be used for your next creation! 

There are so many different ways to use silicone molds, and one of our favorite parts is getting to see all the amazing things our customers create. We’re always blown away by the creativity, and we can’t wait to see what you make next.
