Rizzi from The New York Baking Company contacted me and asked me to do a review of these Silicone Baking Cups. The retail value of these cups is $9.95. You can find them here at Amazon.
I buy cup cake liners all the time, especially when I see them on sale. I always wondered about these liners and whether or not I would like them. How exciting to be asked to do an honest review of them.
Part of me was a bit nervous about them because of the silicone- would this be a good thing? Would any chemicals go into the muffins? This is my only concern. After researching a bit, there is not a whole lot of information in regard to this. Dr. Weil, who I happen to respect and trust. Read more about it here. (Yes, I twisted them (as suggested by Dr. Weil) to see if there was any white and, no, I did not see any white, which should mean there are no fillers.
As far as the performance of these muffins cups- love them. The muffins raised up real nice and the muffins came out of the silicone very easily both when warmed and completely cooled. The muffin cups were pretty easy to clean afterward.
The muffin cups are very economical. You buy them one time and don't have to keep buying cupcake liners. The price of these silicone cups is pretty reasonable too- $9.95.
