My newly bought bakeware seems to stick compare to my old aluminum bakeware, why ?

Silicone Zone’s bakeware products are made of 100% silicone and is completely different from traditional aluminum bakeware when comes to the transfer of heat. The composition of the material are also different and hence the food ingredient’s need for water and butter are also reduced. The recipe that are previously used with aluminum bakeware may require a small change by reducing the amount of butter and water content. *Our suggestion is to rinse the bakeware in hot water first and apply a thin coat of cooking oil onto the surface to increase its non-stick properties for the first time. Subsequent times does not require the application of cooking oil.#

Always put food material inside a cooking utensil when placing in a heated oven. Silicone cookware in general cannot be left inside heated oven without any food material. Failing to do so way cause deformation and harm to the bakeware and should be avoided.
