Are Silicone Cooking Utensils Safe?
This is probably your biggest question at the moment: Are Silicone Cooking Utensils safe to use?
It isn’t enough that silicone cooking utensils are stylish and lightweight, they have a few other benefits as well.
“Food grade silicone is very safe to use in any type of food. [Unlike some other materials], silicone does not react with food and beverages or produce any hazardous fumes.” – according to this article written by ChinChin, who holds a B.S. in Food Technology.
Silicone has a very high heat-resistance, meaning it can withstand a TON of heat power and, if you’re anyone like me, you won’t have to worry about forgetting that spoon inside the pot of boiling water.
But, what about which is safer nylon or silicone cooking utensils? Both materials are scratch-resistant so they won’t ruin your frying pans but silicone is overall the better choice!
They are non-toxic and can withstand high temperatures, making them the prefect cooking utensil to have around!
So it is safe to say that silicone tools are 100% safe to use in your kitchen.
So go craaaaay on styling up your kitchen with it!!
