To avoid food sticking to a bowl, dish, pan, basket, or set of tongs, premium quality silicone is one solution. It is fundamentally non-stick, so food will not adhere to it in the cooking or grilling process, and it cleans up very well. Fat or oil is no longer required to reduce sticking, so less of it needs to be retained in cooked meals.
Silicone materials can be utilized on temperature ranges from sub-zero to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and are appropriate for almost all grilling or kitchen activities. They allow for the elimination of utensils with less range of functionality. Top quality silicone will not retain odors or stains and is non-toxic.
Characteristics of Silicone
Qualities that work well for cooking include flexibility, low thermal conductivity, low chemical reactivity, low toxicity, high thermal stability, and low microbial growth support.
Maintenance of Silicone
Silicone products can be cleaned in the same manner as typical household utensils. They should be cleansed regularly, even when not being used, because they will collect dust due to static electricity build up. Scouring pads that are abrasive should be avoided.
Tongs with silicone tips and other silicone cooking devices are less likely to corrode than their metal equivalents. They can be of many different colors, and their prices will not be unacceptable.
Clear Choice’s non-stick coatings are specifically chosen
The son stick surface on its grill baskets is designed for temperatures experienced when barbecuing. They do not pose the risks associated with Teflon coatings that have been proven to break down at temperatures above 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
One of the reasons that a Teflon surface breaks down more easily is that is often on a lightweight pan. Clear Choice grilling baskets are heavier steel pans under the coating to make them even more safe for the consumer.
To resist scratches on the non- stick surface it is advisable to use non scratch cooking utensils, like Clear Choice’s silicone tongs, when stirring or removing food contents from their vegetable basket.
