    Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    For those of you who avoid products with nonstick coating, what do you use for bakeware? Glass? Silicone? Stoneware?

    We have Pyrex glass baking dishes that I use, but I'd like to find something to replace the loaf pan and muffin tin that we currently have (both have nonstick coating).

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    We've switched to mostly silicone. It's just so easy to use & work with. I've found little difference between brands & generally just go for whatever is on clearance at TJMaxx/Home Goods/Marshall's.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    I avoid aluminium, too. I have glass and silicone loaf pans. I prefer the glass. Actually, I also have a 6-cavity mini loaf mold that I love for quick breads. It looks like the link, and there's a wire frame that helps it hold its shape when moving into/out of the oven, which I can't find pictured anywhere online.

    My muffin pans are also silicone with a wire frame. I neither love nor hate them.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    I use pyrex. I have a silicone muffin pan, but I always use liners with it. I am just paranoid that in 5 years there will be news about SILICONE, so I just go backward in time and stick to glass.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    My solution is to not bake. Wait...I didn't bake before I quite using non-stick, so I guess nothing has changed for me.

    (For casseroles, baked pastas or other meals, we use glass.)

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    When I bake cookies, I use aluminium cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Makes it much easier for clean up in addition to no sticking! My cupcake pans are lined with paper baking cups. My loaf pan is a glass Pyrex dish. My cake pans are aluminum though.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    I use glass usually pyrex, I usually don't use silicone as I still think it bakes some kind of chemical into my food. Paranoia? probably.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    I recently have fallen in love with stoneware. I found a like new stoneware Pampered Chef muffin pan at a garage sale for $1 and a cookie sheet for $0.75! I also recently purchased a Pampered Chef loaf pan at a thrift store and two Food Network ones at Kohl's for cheap. I think Kohl's was clearence them out, it was about a month ago so they may still have some. The stoneware loaf pans work really nice for bread. Otherwise, I love Pyrex for most other things.

    We use glass/Pyrex. I thought about silicone but I've smelled it off-gassing in the store and it lost its appeal. So, glass it is.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    I also can't stand the off-gassing of the silicone stuff (or how floppy it is without a wire rack/stand), so I mostly use Pyrex glassware (all casserole dishes, pie pans, loaf pans, square cake pans). I also have a cheap nonstick muffin tin that I still use with paper liners, and cheap nonstick cookie sheets that I line with parchment paper. I'm *dying* for some stoneware, though.

    Glass, stainless steel, stoneware. I have aluminum cookie sheets that I love (airbake) but I try not to use aluminum very much until they figure out if the fact that Alzheimer's patients have more aluminum in their brains is cause or effect. I LOVE stoneware, and frequently find it at thrift stores and garage sales. Stoneware cooks so evenly, and it's been cooked with forever, so I don't have a single worry about it. And lasts forever. Unless you drop it. And nothing sticks to it once it's seasoned well.

    I also use glass. Stainless steel can be harder find w/out non-stick, but it's out there. Check eBay. I have a stainless steel jelly roll pan I use as a cookie sheet, It's awesome - shiny mirror finish that stuff doesn't hardly stick on, even without oil or anything else.

    The silicon stuff scares me. Too new, too smelly, and it just seems counter-intuitive that it could possibly be safe in the oven. Cast iron skillets work in the oven, too.

    Pyrex mostly and some Corningware. I have professional steel sheet pans that I use the most, they are great for everything.

    Re: Bakeware that doesn't have nonstick coating?

    erm, from what I've read, regular parchment paper has a questionable coating too (sorry to be the Debbie Downer). I've found the If You Care brand (at Whole Foods and Amazon) that's unbleached and coated in silicone (seems safer than what conventional parchment paper is coated with but still..who knows what will be unearthed down the road in terms of safety).
