Turn on the television on any day of the week and you'll soon come across professional and amateur chefs around the world milling, stirring and seasoning on ratings winners like America's Test Kitchen, The fantastic British Bake Away and MasterChef: Australia.

Interest in cookery has jumped and so, consequently, have earnings of kitchenware. Silicone products, in particular, have witnessed a massive rise. Watch any chef on TV and it will not be long before you see him or her producing a wonderful dish with the help of silicone baking pans, sheets and mats, spatulas and molds.

With popular TV shows promoting silicone kitchenware, it's not surprising that home cooks are currently buying these products in ever-increasing numbers.

But what is it about this item that is quickly which makes it a must-have at the kitchen?

1. Silicone is a non-toxic substance, meaning that food won't get baked on. Silicone baking mat s can be used on top of baking sheets and cookie sheets, or within baking pans, which makes your non-silicone bake-ware completely non-stick.

2. Silicone can manage cold and heat.

3. Silicone conducts heat very slowly, so utensils stay cool in a hot saucepan and kitchen tops and surfaces will not suffer burn marks. When silicone mats are made to include fibreglass net they provide an even heat transfer, the fibreglass mesh and silicone operate together to boost even baking and browning.

4. Silicone does not degrade over time and won't rust or stain. If made from high quality silicone your bake-ware can be used thousands of times.

5. Silicone is very flexible so that it can be folded or squeezed into tight storage spaces. This also makes the removal of cakes and muffins from silicone bake-ware really simple.

6. Silicone is a soft cloth and its utensils will not scratch or damage non-stick pans.

7. A silicone baking mat can be used over 2000 times so there is no need to buy parchment paper along with other disposable linings/sheets. The environment will thank you!

Now that we have established the many reasons why silicone is so popular let's look at the safety issue - silicone is man made after all and for food preparation purposes it's going to be used for making something which you will place in your mouth!
