How to get the best from your Silverwood Bakeware:
If pastry is your thing, you generally won’t need to grease your Silverwood bakeware. There will be enough fat in the pastry to do it for you. But if you want to use a little unsalted butter, just to be sure, we won’t stop you!
For greasing and to aid release of your cakes we recommend you use a little oil or unsalted butter dusted with flour. This is especially useful for sponge cakes and will give a lovely pale gold crust (if you are making a chocolate cake, dust with cocoa instead). Lard is great too – except if you’re cooking for vegetarians.
If you are using Silverwood bakeware loaf tins for bread, letting a patina develop works really well. Start off using oil to grease your new tin (groundnut is a good choice, otherwise known as peanut oil), after a few loaves the patina will build up.
It is best to avoid olive oil for greasing, as it can form a sticky layer which is difficult to remove.
At present we don’t recommend using release sprays on your Silverwood bakeware.
For clean-up, most bakers say that a bit of a soak and then a quick wash in warm soapy water is all you need. Some fats and oils may produce a light discolouration on the surface of the pan. This is normal. Chefs often encourage this ‘patina’ to build-up on their bakeware and it is particularly useful when baking bread.
Dishwashing is best avoided.
In common with many high-quality products, anodised bakeware shouldn’t be put in the dishwasher. Some dishwasher detergents contain caustic cleaning agents which may chemically attack and damage the surface of your pan irreparably. Similarly, avoid the use of oven-cleaners and other harsh chemical cleaning agents.
However, this type of damage is purely aesthetic and (as it has no detrimental effect on cooking or health) the pan is not a write-off. It has just been given added character!
