Many consumers have concerns when choosing silicone kitchenware, such as silicone spatula. Silicon spatula high temperature resistance, to what extent? Will it melt like plastic when used at high temperatures? Will it release toxic substances? Is it resistant to oil temperature? Will it burn as easily as a wood shovel?

Of course not! From the perceptual aspect, it is inferred that, as a new type of kitchenware material, if it melts at high temperature, it will burn out and release toxic substances, so there is no need for silicone product manufacturers to develop this kind of material! FDA, LFGB is not The kitchen utensils that may be used for this material are certified for testing. The foreign family cooking food, more and more people give up the traditional material kitchen utensils, the preferred silicone material, but also from the side that the silicone material kitchen utensils have higher safety than traditional kitchen materials!

From a rational point of view, the silicone temperature is as high as 260 degrees, and we usually cook, the pot temperature is only over a hundred degrees. When the temperature of edible oil rises to 200 degrees, it will cause fumes. Normal cooking oil temperature will not exceed 200 degrees, oil temperature is too high, but will produce harmful substances. To put it another way, if you normally cook the wood or bamboo spade, the front end may be used for a long time, and there will be more or less a little blackening. Under the same conditions, you can use a silicone spatula, and the spatula will not be melted off at all. , deformation and so on. In addition, due to the stable physical and chemical properties of silica gel, it does not react with any substances other than strong alkali and strong acids, and conventional conditions do not release toxic substances. Even if the silica gel is ignited under extreme conditions, no toxic substances are released during the firing process, and full combustion only results in non-toxic white powder, rather than toxic substances.

So, does silicone kitchenware produce toxic substances at high temperatures? We can rest assured that we can purchase kitchen utensils made of this kind of healthy and environmentally-friendly materials to ensure food safety and produce no pollution. It is not only beneficial to our health but also to the environment.
