Silicone Baking cups - a product review

A baker can get away without investing in fancy tools but cannot do without good baking pans. Any hobby baker or an obsessive baker will have many pans and cannot resist trying out new pans. I belong to such a category of bakers. You name the shape and size of the baking pan, I probably have it. When Rizzi from 'The New York  Baking Company' contacted me to try their silicone baking cups and write a review on the product, I couldn't say no. Could I?
First of all, these are so cool to look at. Compact to store compared to the regular muffin or cupcake pans which take up quite a bit of space. Since these are silicone cups, you don't have to worry about the cupcake or the muffin sticking to the pan. And since they are not rigid, you can fit a lot of them on a cookie sheet and bake two batches on the same rack thereby avoiding the rotating the pan work.
I baked some chocolate walnut muffins and did not even grease the cups. I should have at least misted them with vegetable oil spray since a little crumbs did stick to the pan. But it could be just because the recipe was a low fat one and quite wet batter was used. Other than that, these worked great. These are dish washer safe, oven safe to 425 F, BPA free.
Since we don't have to line them with paper liners, it is a good way of going green. But, wash them in warm soapy water couple of times before using them for the first time.
