As I have stated time and time again, I am not a big part of what goes on in the kitchen for the most part.  When it comes to cooking or even baking, I’d rather just not do it.  I don’t like it and just don’t get it.  Weirdly though I love buying new kitchen gadgets and adding wonderful amazing products to our kitchen to ease the kitchen hassle and even clean up time (which I do all the time myself).

OvenArt Bakeware Silicone Muffin Pan Review

Which is why I was pretty excited to be accepted to review the new OvenArt Bakeware Silicone Muffin Pan.  I am getting this up later then I would have liked, but trying to figure out what I wanted to make in this new muffin pan to test out was the issue for me.  I finally found a yummy cupcake recipe in my Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet 2011 and knew that is what I was going to test it out with.  As always though, recipe is not mine, but I got it from the above book.

My Thoughts on OvenArt Bakeware Silicone Muffin Pan

I enjoyed using this silicone muffin pan.  It was so easy to clean.  Is dishwasher safe as well.  Making clean up even easier.  All I had to do was wipe out the crumbs from the cupcakes and that happened with ease.

Most of my cupcakes popped out of the muffin pan very easily, but some stuck and fell apart as I was taken them out.  Which could have been my error, or the pan itself, which I doubt. 
Overall I loved this pan and look forward to using it more in the future and getting to know how to use the silicone to bake with weather it be more cupcakes, muffins, or other various personal sized treats.

        I have never used silicone baking dishes. It does look like it would be easy to clean. Thanks for the recipe the cupcakes look delicious.

      • I totally forgot to mention that we decided not to make the frosting this time and they are just as tasty without any frosting!

      • I have heard great things about these types of pans. Mostly it being so much easier to clean which is always better than anything else.

      • It was a breeze to wash indeed. love that!

      • I’ve been thinking about getting one of those!

      • This is genius!! I’m terrible at trying to get muffins and cupcakes out of pans unless I have them in a paper.

      • I have a silicone square baking dish and it is perfect for making buffalo chicken dip. A silicone muffin pan would be great, because it would eliminate the sticking.

      • I can totally see the silicone square baking dish coming in handy, now I might need to find me one!! Thanks 🙂

      • I know, its so great. I think next time I might use the paper too, just for ease. But nice to know I can go either way fairly easy.

      • You should!! You’ll love it, for many things!

      • Yum, those look so tasty!

      • They are really good!! More like brownies then cupcakes, but still yummy!
