This one has been bothering me for years and I’ve not found a decent answer online about this.
Basically this particularly applies to 2 things
- silicone sheets for oven cooking
- silicone cheesecake springform pan
And to a lessor extent
3) silicone spatulas
4) silicone cases like the Stasher brand bags (good for Sous Vide!)
For 1 and 2, once they get greasy doesn’t seem to be any way to get rid of that, the sheets we usually use for making bacon in the over and the cheesecake pan for making, well… cheesecake.
We wash them with Dawn (and other dish soap), multiple times and they are still greasy, in the case of the cheesecake pan, it’s also been through the dishwasher several times and still comes out greasy and still smells a bit like cheesecake and the sheets still smell like bacon. I’ve used in both the oven and the Instant Pot to make cheesecake with springform pan.
Scrubbing them, soaking them etc, doesn’t make any difference. During hand washng process all seems good, you go to put them away next after drying and still greasy.
As to the spatulas and stasher bags, generally a good forceful cleaning with Dawn or another spin through the dishwasher resolves things.
Anyone got any ideas on the cause of this and how to resolve it?
