which type of muffin pan and cookie sheet is safe? - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Many ss cookware will have an aluminum layer in them, for heat conduction, but the outer layer of my ss cookware is ss. I live in Seattle and was able to find ss cookware at Seattle Restaurant Supply. Their stock seems to change frequently though so they may have different stuff now than they did when I bought from them.

Silicone IS a type of plastic. All silicone rubber products are plastic, though not all plastics are silicone. Plastics are man-made polymers, and silicones are man-made polymers that contain silicon. I'd rather cook with aluminum than silicone, personally.

I have cast iron muffin tins - 2 6-hole lodge and 2 11-hole... cajun cookware? (These: http://www.shopperschoice.com/item_n...m_1463647.html ) Love'm.

My cookie sheets are aluminum by doughmakers as is one pie pan. I honestly thought they were SS when I bought them. Someday I'll get around to replacing them with SS...

ironically, i just checked my cookie sheets tonight with a magnet and walked away assured they were not aluminum til i read this thread ... just checked: i have williams sonoma aluminum clad ss baking sheets i use silpats, though.

recently, i just bought tovolo silicone cupcake molds. haven't had a chance to use them. i think surely that's less of a problem than aluminum?

we are planning to live fulltime in an RV, or else i'd buy all cast iron and glass for everything.

Yes, Seattle Restaurant Supply is one of the places I looked (along with Sur la Table, Mrs. Cooks, Williams-Sonoma and some other not as upscale stores) and at that time none of them carried SS Cookie Sheets (aluminum core or not). I have plenty of SS cookware, but it was the cookie sheets (and muffin tins) specifically I was trying to find. This was 2 or 3 years ago before the holidays when I was looking everywhere. I do agree their stock changes though.....and isn't it a great place? Love that store. But when I asked they didn't even know if they could get some.

RE: the silicone....yeah, in looking it up, I think I was confused. I was thinking silicon- sand - glass... Guess it is not a surprise that chemistry was never my best science Sorry if I sounded snarky before, totally not my intent.
