Silicone products are very common in life, such as cell phone cases, draining racks, kitchenware and so on. Silicone tableware is gradually coming into public life. At this time, some people will ask whether silicone tableware is toxic?
I can tell you for sure that it is not toxic, because all silicone manufacturers must meet the relevant national standards. Therefore, the product is absolutely non-toxic. Unless the manufacturer uses compounds that do not meet the requirements during the production process, the product will be safe. Therefore, if you want to buy silicone tableware, there is no safety risk in finding a regular manufacturer of this silicone tableware.
Silicone tableware is non-toxic, so what are its advantages and disadvantages?
Advantages of silicone tableware.
1, silicone tableware using food-grade silicone material molding, non-toxic and tasteless, safe and environmentally friendly.
2, silicone tableware can be folded, kneaded, flipped, etc., does not take up space, does not absorb oil. With desiccant function, long-term storage will not be moldy and deteriorate.
3. Silicone tableware matches the temperature of the food. Whether the food is cold or hot, silicone tableware can protect the temperature of the food and reduce the temperature loss. The food put into the silicone container can still keep the original temperature after a period of time, and the temperature will not be transmitted to the user, not easy to burn your hands.
4, silicone kitchenware compared with ceramic. The most important feature of silicone tableware is that it is resistant to shattering and does not make a sound when dropped on the ground. Chinese commonly used ceramic tableware is good, but fragile, plastic tableware can withstand drops, but plastic is very hard, there may be cracks after a fall. Silicone tableware can be put down at will, do not worry about damage.
5, heat resistance is good. The heat resistance of silicone is very good. It will not deform and deteriorate at 240 degrees Celsius. At the same time, it will not harden at -40 degrees Celsius, so it can be used for steaming, boiling, baking, etc.
6. Silicone tableware is easy to clean. Because silicone does not stick to oil and does not absorb oil, it is easy to clean.
7. More colors and more shapes. Various colors can be formulated according to the needs of users, and can form various shapes of tableware.
Disadvantages of silicone tableware.
It can be said that the disadvantages of silicone are for Chinese people, because Chinese people are used to porcelain tableware and feel that silicone tableware is out of place. The most important thing is the high heat resistance of silicone tableware. But this can only meet the requirements of making Western food. For Chinese food, its heat resistance is still lower than that of Chinese food. For example, silicone cannot come into contact with open flame, so it is easy to deform and burn.
Like our usual fried food and other food can be put on top of the oil control, washing vegetables can control the water, etc.
If you often make western food or eat cold food, then the advantages of silicone health, safety, environmental protection and foldable are still outstanding.
