When you bake, the most common tool that you will use is a baking pan. Many bakers are making the switch to traditional baking pan alternatives, like non-toxic baking pans. If you want to make the switch, there are a few things that you should know to make baking with alternatives easier. Here are 5 tips for baking with baking pan alternatives.

1. Eco-Friendly Alternatives Do Not Leach Chemicals

One of the biggest advantages of switching to eco-friendly baking pan alternatives is that they do not leach chemicals into your food. When heated, the containers that you use can slowly release trapped chemicals left over from the manufacturing process. Eco-friendly alternatives are made without these chemicals, so they cannot be released during baking.

2. Compostable Containers Supply Your Garden

If you grow your own food, then you may want to consider using compostable baking pan alternatives. Since they are compostable, you can use them to replenish the soil in your garden. They will break down in the soil, like other biodegradable materials. However, they cannot be used on edible plants you may have in the garden.

3. Single-Serve Baking Containers Double as Packaging

If you are using baking pan alternatives, you can use them to package your food in. It will help to ensure that the food is fresh upon delivery. Since they are made out of biodegradable material, the container will decompose in the soil when it gets back to your customer's home.

4. Grease-Resistant Containers Replace Baking Liners

Some of the things that you bake can be greasy, which is why many recipes call for baking liners. You can eliminate those liners from your cooking by switching to a grease-resistant container.

Containers, like this Tulip Golden Brown Silicone Baking Cup, help fight off grease without compromising the container. That way, you don’t need a separate liner for your recipes. Having fewer liners means keeping them out of landfills so that they don’t hurt the environment.

5. The Right Container Makes Storage Easy

If you are using non-toxic baking pans, you can store them in your pantry. Since they are not toxic, you can also use them to store your food items without worrying about them being dangerous to your family.

Some of the options that you can choose are cold-resistant, making them useful freezer containers. Once your baked goods have cooled down from the oven, you can stick them right into the freezer without repackaging them.

While some baked goods do not need to be sealed to be stored, some do need a lid. There are baking boxes that can be put in the freezer and come with lids. One example of this is the Rectangular Wood Box from PacknWood. The wood that it is made from can withstand the freezer without degrading and comes with a lid.

There are many ways to improve your baking while avoiding traditional materials that hurt the environment.
