    Silicone up to ridiculously high temperatures is an inert substance, if you were to use it in an open fire you might have some problems.

    I'm much more concerned about Teflon products and have long banished them from my kitchen, however you'd be amazed how many places they crop up.

    For stovetop cooking I love stainless steel. Most of my favorites recommend hand washing, so I do. But wonder why, shouldn't stainless steel be dishwasher safe? Maybe they are sneaking some aluminum on those?

    I like stainless steel too, and cast iron but when I bought my last stove glass top it says not to use cast iron so now my cast iron fry pan only goes into the oven. The rest are hanging up. [​IMG]
    Since I don't have a dish washer never have I have to had wash everything.

    Have you seen the stainless steel cook ware Mother earth news has? I bought 2 fry pans and I love them, when they have a sale they are priced nice.

    From what I've read the dishwasher chemicals can be harsh enough to damage stainless steel.

    Meanwhile have you ever tried just rinsing the pans whilst hot, having great luck with that.

    Good to know. DH has been gripping about one of our skillets. Maybe (if he's good) he can have one for Christmas. That is what every guy would like right? [​IMG]

    Love my cast iron, too
    I have an ancient Farberware saucepan that was my mother's--just right for heating 1 can of anything---probably will last forever-and a sentimental favorite
