Best Silicone Baking Pans

The Spruce Eats / Lecia Landis

If you're a bakeware traditionalist, you might have a preference for metal or glass pans for your oven adventures (and we totally get it). But silicone bakeware has gained a lot of popularity over recent years, mainly for its durability and ease of use. Since silicone is naturally nonstick, these pieces don't require additional greasing or parchment paper and are much easier to clean than traditional pans. Their flexibility to go from cold to hot without thermal shock is a major plus, and they are quite lightweight and easy to transport and store. Thinking about taking a foray into the silicone bakeware world? We've got you covered.

Here are the best silicone baking pans to get you started.

What We Don't Like

This set of silicone bakeware has everything you need for baking your favorite desserts, quick breads, and more.

You can use these for frozen desserts such as semifreddo, for freezing portions of leftovers, and for baking savory foods as well. When you're done with them, gently remove any debris and put them in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.

The set includes 12 cupcake molds (3 each in red, blue, yellow, and green), a 16-inch cookie sheet, a 10-inch pie pan, a 9-inch round cake pan, a 12-cup muffin pan, a 9.5-inch Bundt pan, and a 9-inch bread pan.

Since this cake pan won't suffer from thermal shock, you can take items from the freezer or fridge directly to the oven without worry, so refreshing that brown sugar cinnamon streusel-topped coffee cake you pre-baked and froze in the pan the week before will be a breeze.

  • Oven safe to 500+ degrees

What We Don't Like
  • Hand-wash only

Silpats were among the first silicone baking mats on the market, and they still make a high-quality product, now at a much more affordable price. You can use this mat in place of parchment paper for baking, and it’s nonstick without butter or oil. You can even use it for making candy since taffy and peanut brittle won’t stick to the mat and it can withstand the heat of melted sugar. The half-sheet mat fits perfectly into a 13 x 18-inch pan. The Silpat baking mat is also available for other size pans, ranging from quarter sheet to three-quarter sheet sizes.

The mat is made from a fiberglass mesh covered with food-grade silicone, so it’s BPA-free and can withstand temperatures from -40 to 500 degrees. It is freezer-, microwave-, and oven-safe. The fiberglass provides even heat distribution for even browning, but sharp objects shouldn’t be used on the mat to avoid exposing the fiberglass. If the mat is accidentally cut, it should be discarded.

The sturdy silicone material encourages even cooking and the tabs help you lift the cups out of the tins and remove the finished muffins without leaving a thumbprint—even moist, cream-cheese-filled carrot cake muffins. Thanks to the smooth interior surface, the cakes will come out easily for hassle-free cleanup. When you're not baking with them, they're also great to use in bento lunches to hold sides or dips.

What to Look For When Buying Silicone Bakeware


Silicone bakeware is made of food-grade silicone, a rubber-like substance made by bonding silicon with oxygen. Top-quality silicone will not discolor or give off any odors when in use; silicone of inferior quality might contain fillers that may cause your bakeware to change color or emit odors while baking over time. When purchasing silicone bakeware, opt for the best quality you can afford so that you'll be able to use it for as long as possible.


Many pieces of silicone bakeware are simply made of just silicone, lending themselves well to the flexibility that allows you to easily pop out your finished baked goods. While this characteristic is useful, the downside is that it usually requires that you use a baking sheet underneath to provide support as you transport your bakeware to and from the oven. If you want a sturdier baking pan, search for items made of thicker silicone and—even better—designs that include some sort of steel reinforcement that keep the pan from wobbling.

Use and Care

Most silicone bakeware is safe to use in the freezer, refrigerator, and oven without the risk of thermal shock. For exact heat limitations, be sure to consult the manufacturer's instructions. To clean your bakeware, you can easily hand-wash with mild dish detergent and a non-abrasive sponge, or place it in the dishwasher if the item is marked as dishwasher-safe. Be sure not to use any sharp tools or utensils (like knives or skewers) with your silicone baking pans and mats; once the silicone is cut, it is typically unrepairable and should be thrown away.


Are silicone baking pans safe?

Yes—according to the FDA, food-grade silicone pans are safe to use. Silicone is considered inert (non-reactive) and will not leach into foods.

Do you grease silicone baking pans?

You can, but you usually don't have to. Silicone is naturally nonstick and should provide an easy release, but if you're finding that your baked goods are still sticking, you can try preparing your pans with nonstick cooking spray or a bit of butter or oil.

How do you use silicone baking pans?

Most of the time, you'd use a silicone baking pan just as you would use a traditional metal or glass pan. Since silicone bakeware tends to be flimsier than metal or glass, you might need to use a baking sheet under it for support. With some silicone pans, you might have to adjust baking times or temperature to achieve your desired result.

Are silicone baking pans dishwasher-safe?

Nearly all the silicone baking pans we've researched and tested are also dishwasher-safe, with the exception of the Silpat baking mat (hand-wash only). To be sure if your silicone bakeware is okay to put in the dishwasher, always check your manufacturer's instructions.

Can you use silicone baking pans in a toaster oven?

Yes, as long as you are baking within the specified heat threshold of your bakeware. Just be aware that you may have to adjust time and temperature through trial and error.

Are silicone baking pans better than metal?

Since they actually perform similarly, it is really just a matter of preference and budget. Silicone pieces are typically lighter weight and easier to store than traditional bakeware but don't have the same sturdiness or structure as glass and metal pans. Silicone also tends to be more expensive, especially with professional-grade pieces, but they also last a long time without having to worry about dents, rust, or warping. You can't go wrong with either!
