Silicone is inert. It does not emit fumes of any sort, leach into food, or pose any health risks according to the FDA. Experts consider it non-reactive and a good choice when looking for low-risk cookware. If you are concerned about the possibilities of long term use of silicone bakeware, consider confining your use to spatulas, trivets and other items that are not exposed to heat on a consistent basis. If you do use silicone pans, you should also keep in mind that they should be placed on a firm surface, like a cookie sheet, when baking. Lifting a flexible pan from the oven can leave you with burns and a cake on the floor rather than your table.
