Silicone bakeware is lightweight and flexible, and allows foods to slide right out. You may notice a slight odour coming from the bakeware, both when it's new and when you are cooking with older pans. Properly cleaning your silicone bakeware will prevent this smell.
Soak the silicone bakeware in warm water and dish soap. Gently run a wet dishcloth around the inside of the piece to remove stuck-on food. If bits of food remain stuck on the bakeware, soak in hot water for up to 15 minutes before washing with your towel.
Clean your silicone bakeware as soon as you bring it home from the store and before using it. Washing out the piece removes any odd smells left behind from storage, packaging or the store shelves.
Never place your silicone bakeware in the cabinet while it's still wet. Bacteria may grow on wet silicone, which will not only cause it to smell, but may also be harmful.
