FAQ and advices


What do you recommend for silicone moulds?

Before the first use:

  • Clean your silicone mould with warm water and washing up liquid.
  • Silicone moulds are suitable for dishwasher. Yet, we recommend you to wash them by hand as dishwasher might shorten the product lifetime.
  • Grease the mould with some butter or oil. For the next uses, it will no longer be necessary.


  • Place your silicone mould on a grid or a perforated baking tray to enable a better heat circulation.
  • For a use in a fan oven, place the grid in the middle of your oven.
  • For a use in a traditional oven, place the grid in the inferior part of the oven.
  • Never switch on the grill function of your oven as infrared rays may damage silicone moulds.
  • Never heat your mould while it is empty. If there is not enough preparation to fill all the forms, fill them with some flour or oil to preserve them.
  • Do not use sharp utensils within silicone moulds.
  • Heat silicone moulds in traditional and fan ovens only

NB: moulds from the MOUL’FLEX range are suitable for microwave. Never use your silicone mould on other heating sources such as gas stove or electric hobs.

To where should I fill the forms?

For preparations that will rise during the cooking, fill the forms ¾ maximum.

What is the difference between ELASTOMOULE and MOUL’FLEX?

Designed for an intensive use, ELASTOMOULE (patented) is professional quality and enables a great caramelization as well as a perfect heat and cold transmission thanks to micro-bubbles present in the silicone foam, and to a metal powder. With their sharp angle forms, moulds enable to bake perfectly shaped pastries with neat lines.

ELASTOMOULE moulds can be used to cook in a traditional oven or for cold forming in a freezer, a blast-chiller, a fridge… since they resist to temperatures between -70°C and +300°C.

MOUL’FLEX range is made of a high quality platinum silicone* that is peroxide free. The moulds can be used to cook in a traditional oven, in a microwave oven or in bain-marie. They are also perfect for cold forming as they resist to temperatures between -40°C and +280°C.

* Platinum silicone is a kind of silicone using exclusively platinum (a natural precious metal) as a catalyst to form the material. As a consequence, the quality is superior and moulds are more resistant and totally odourless, that way not modifying the taste of food. Thanks to its safe components, platinum silicone is chemically inert, doesn’t produce any residue when it is exposed to heat, and as a result, platinum silicone is perfectly suitable for food contact. The material also repels water and keep bacteria away, guaranteeing maxi mum hygiene.

Are Charlotte moulds suitable for induction?

As they are designed for cold forming, Charlotte moulds are not suitable for induction, whether they are made of stainless steel or tinned iron. They can still be used for hot forming in an oven or in bain-marie.
