5.0 out of 5 starsCute containers / dividers for bento boxes
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on December 31, 2018
I used these cupcake liners as containers to separate various food items in bento boxes that I made for lunch for my work week. They were great in keeping foods with liquids from mixing with other foods and making them soggy. For the price, they were a great deal! They were super easy to clean and store.
I bought these to separate out foods in my children's lunches. They are the perfect size for portioning. As for baking, they're flimsy. I don't trust them without a muffin tin. If you are looking for silicone cups that stand alone, these are not your cups. However, they work perfectly for my purposes. I don't mind popping the cups in the muffin tin before baking. They are still saving me money on the paper cups. Plus, the kids love how colorful they are.
The cups clean pretty easily. I just pop them in the dishwasher easy-peazy. Once you let the cornbread, muffin, etc. cool, they come off smoothly.
A side note is that these cups are really useful for freezing small portions of food. I buy tomato paste in the can but never need a full can. For a while scooping it onto a plate in 1 tbsp portions and freezing it was my go-to but getting it off the plate is annoying. Pop the tomato paste into these cups and they come right off. Also, of you stain the cups, just leave them out in the sun for a while and it will fade.
Stuff comes out very easily. The only complaint I have is that 3 are sturdy and 3 ate quite flimsy. In the flimsy ones the batter is lopsided when filled because the tops never stay circular but become oval.
