    I have the silicone mats but what I love is my Shark oven mitt.

    I haven't used anything else.

    Quick tip with the egg poachers - spray a little oil into them before you crack the eggs in. Makes it easier to slide them out.

    The other silicone gizmo we use is a BBQ mat that you put onto the grill to stop marinade, etc making a terrible sticky mess on the grill itself. They are also brilliant for public BBQs where you can't be sure how clean they are or for camping and you only need to wash with warm water. I tried to buy one in Canada for my BIL but the guy in the shop had never heard of them.

    My silicone turners and spoons have melted.

    My silicone bundt cake sucked so bad I gave it away.

    But I love my silpat(baking mat) and my silicone spatulas.

    I have one for muffins, and it is the biggest pain the in the ass. You still have to put it on a flat pan of some sort, and it is hell to clean after baking even when you grease it up beforehand.

    I imagine there are good uses for silicone products in the kitchen, but baking is not one of them.

    Yep with the exception of the silpat my experience is they're not good for baking.

    There are two types of silicone bakeware - with metal and without. I've both types. The one's with metal are much better. You don't have to find another tin to prop up the sides. The silicone tins with metal inside ensure that things keep a square as it were shape. If there is not metal and you don't prop the sides will bulge out. The Jamie Oliver silicone stuff has metal inside the rims etc and is made by tefal - Jamie Oliver Silicone Bakeware

    I usually rest them on a metal baking tray because it is easier to move them out of the oven.

    I tried the muffin cups, the round cake mould and the square brownie mould. The Muffin cups were excellent, no problems there. The round cake expanded instead of rising, as alot of people have said, and the brownies were alright, not great, still a bit flat, but I took them to work in the pan, and some idiot sliced them without taking them out, and sliced right through the silicone. sigh. I'll stick to muffins and cupcakes!
    Oh well, they only cost about $1 each so it's all good. I might have a look at the Jamie Oliver ones, they sound good, but his stuff seems to be a bit pricey...

    I borrowed one from a friend. No real difference and I'm another one who found the chemical thing a bit unnerving. I'll stick with my traditional stuff.

    I have a muffin one shaped like snowflakes. It works fine. Now I want the egg pods. I love poached eggs and these would make it so much easier!
