I'm wondering if anyone has done extensive cooking with silicone cookware. It seems to me that it would be perfect for the RV as it is lightweight, non-stick for quick easy cleaning, can be used in the microwave, freezer and oven and it doesn't rattle. I bought my granddaughter a cookbook/bakeware set called "Bake it in a Cup" that came with small to standard size muffin cups and we had fun making eggs, lasagna, ham and cheese rolls (her ABSOLUTE favorite), frozen yogurt snacks, desserts, etc. You do have to set the silicone on a sturdy pan since they flex when you move them but I figured I'd be toting a baking sheet anyhow. I purchased mega-size baking cups and plan to experiment with those. The added bonus of baking in the cups is individual servings that cook a bit quicker and store easily (think meatloaf,lasagna, meat  or veggie pies, etc.) AND you can set the whole meal on one tray in the oven/microwave as the cups keep the different foods separated. SOUNDS perfect but reality doesn't always follow my logic. So before I buy more squishy cookware, I thought I'd tap the RV Brain Trust on this forum. Anyone with silicone COOKWARE experience?

2 FRAZZLED:

I am catching up on older posts and noticed your post on the silicone cookware.  I have used them at home and they work great, things don't stick to them .... although I Pam them anyway. I have made bundt cakes etc with no problem. I have not used them in the RV yet but they are loaded in because they don't take up any room, don't rattle or shift around and can also come in handy to cushion rattling stuff.

Carol, thanks for the info. I think I'm going to take the plunge and buy a set that fits the PC micro/oven. The light weight and lack of rattling will probably outweigh any negatives that come along.

Hi Holly,

    It sounds like you are really getting into this RV life style and having a good time at it. Already planning what cookware you will buy. I hope John is having as much fun as you are.  GirlsNightOut GirlsNightOut

We just got back from our test camping trip to Florida. We reviewed all the models and all the mods that you and others have done to your rigs and made our own little wish list (just need to clean it up and type it up). While lounging in the RV during one chilly night (36 degrees), John piped up that if we decide to full time in the unit more than a year and we think the 2552 is too small - we'll just trade in for a bigger one. The gypsy spirit is calling him. He REALLY liked the cushy camping life with the RV. Lots of hiking, lots of lounging, lots of chatting with really nice people - all good. We tried to stay in camp and "live" in the RV and did so most of the trip but we discovered it was just too easy to unhook, stow our gear and run off to play for the day. We know that with a toad, it will be even easier. So, yes, John is excited. We will be heading for Phoenix soon for a tour and a sit down with Stuart. AND our "on the road" date might be moved up if we can get all the pieces to fall into place. So far, so good. YEE HA!

This is something I have done...though we never cooked too much...haha...but the PC does have
a silicone loaf pan, muffin pan, egg cooker, and a round cake pan for whatever.
 They are perfect for the little convection/microwave!   Smile
