COOKINA Silicone instructions
COOKINA Silicone is a non-stick silicone baking mat that is useful for baking anything that sparks your imagination: macaroons, pastry, chocolate and more.
As many new silicone products, the COOKINA Silicone mat may produce a light smoke on first few uses. To eliminate this effect with your new mat, we recommend following these simple steps.
- Clean with soap and warm water. Dry well.
- Heat up your oven 375°F
- Put the mat on the middle rack in a baking tray and wait 30 minutes.
- Wash your mat once again when it is cooled.
You may experience a light odor or smoke when using the mat for the first time but this is totally normal for this type of silicone product and will completely disappear after a few uses. If you follow the 4 steps, you may experience it only once. These steps will make your sheet ready to be heated up and reused and it will also extend its life expectancy. You may also see a color change after using the sheet as this is completely normal, only aesthetic and does not affect the product's performances. They are made from non-toxic food grade materials and nothing toxic will leach out or be released if used correctly.
You may skip all those steps if you simply use the sheet always with well distributed food in an already preheated oven.
