Opinions about this please. I love the practicality but hate the taste/smell that it taints your cakes with and worry that it could be bad for health???

I use it all the time and have never found it taints the flavour. And it wouldn't be allowed if it was dangerous to health, surely?

I love my cupcake cases and the fact that you can wash them in the washing mashine but the bigger cases are just too wobbly, much prefer tins.

Thank you! Maybe just my extra sensitive nose smile

I have never noticed a taste with it. I love it for muffins.

I find it has a taste but only if washed in the dishwasher and it can be annoyingly wobbly. But it is easier to extract bakeware from.

Agree with OhMyNoReally - if it's washed in the dishwasher it does seem to pick up a smell and taints the food a little too.

I have some - not as good as tins I've found and hate the taint from the dishwasher which you don't get with tins.

It turns to pure, powdery carbon that holds its shape until touched if left in the oven running self-cleaning program at 450C shock

Other than that, I used to love it - no funny taste/smell

Im pretty sure they only should be heated up to 230C.

Mine were fine other than that somebody an idiot cut a cake in mine with a sharp knife and cut a slit in it.

Oh, the incineration happened due to InsaneToddler4 sticking the self-cleaning program on, unbeknownst to me - we came home to a smoke-filled house and in the end I was very, very relieved that the only victim of this incident had been a star-shaped cake'tin'.

I have since discovered the child-lock for said oven.... blush
