Silicone: the new "It" material of the kitchen.
Silicone has made its way into the hearts and souls of chefs and their kitchens. Silicone is a durable material that can withstand heat, often up to 600°F and higher. It is virtually nonstick, so anything you cook, measure, mix or roll with it will be easily removed. Silicone is great for use in nonstick cookware because it won't scratch surfaces like other utensils can. And it won't react to acidic foods like metal and other materials can, so much of it remains stain and odor free.
