5 Non-Poisonous Baked Items to Take into account and Our Prime Model Picks

* Disclosure of partners.

So you’ve got stuck at home and heated up a storm with this newly active sourdough starter, or you’ve perfected your pie dough technique. The joy of baking is known to comfort us in times of uncertainty – and there is definitely nothing better than the smell of cinnamon buns on a Saturday morning.

But between evaluating that last bag of organic flour or some delicious local strawberries, have you considered another important ingredient: the pan you actually bake in? You may have already replaced your old, scratched, and broken cookware using our Non-Toxic Cookware Guide. Now is the time to rethink your baking utensils.

Many of the baking molds in our kitchen were inherited from friends or family or bought years ago. And some may actually have toxic materials on their surfaces.

Baking technology is changing, and safer, more effective jars should replace those old, chipped, or scratched non-stick surfaces that you may not have replaced since your wedding registration. Fortunately for us modern bakers, there are several options that are non-toxic and easy to use that will add the perfect golden sheen to your biscuits.

Here are our recommendations for perfect home baking.

1. Safe non-stick baking utensils

Duh, Teflon (aka PTFE) is bad. But also the gluing – especially when it comes to that batch of extra dark, double chocolate brownies that you just pulled out of the oven. What to do? If you have dreamed of soothing treats that easily get out of the pan and into your mouth, ditch the old PTFE coated metal cookware and use ceramic or silicone. Both are safe and do not contain synthetic PFAS like PFOA or GenX. Ceramic coatings are dirt-repellent, safe for metal utensils and, above all, have a non-stick coating. Invest in an essential pan or two or an entire set that will make all your baking dreams come true.

2. Pure ceramic baking utensils
