When to Replace Your Bakeware

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

 

When to Replace Your Bakeware | Wilton Cake DecoratingHappy New Year! Out with the old, in with the new – and that goes for your bakeware, too. Worn out and beat up bakeware can lead to burnt cookies and uneven baking, among other issues. Here’s when it’s time to replace your bakeware:

  • Scratching: If your non-stick pan is badly scratched, it may still be usable; although it will not be as non-stick. If the coating is scratched to the point that it is actually chipping or peeling off, then it’s time to replace.
  • Warping: If your pan is warped – bent or twisted out of shape – pick up a new one. Warping can when pans are exposed to high heat. You may hear a popping sound from your oven as the molecules in the pan expand due to the heat. This is normal, but some thinner materials may not recover from the stress. Avoid moving pans from one temperature extreme to another – for example, don’t take a hot pan from the oven and run it under cool water.
  • Build-up: Are you finding your muffin pans, loaf pans or other bakeware have residue caked on them? Over time, oils and other materials can build up on your bakeware. If your build-up goes beyond some slight staining, it’s time to toss them.
