Hello,
We have the advantium convection/microwave. We don't know a lot, but the book says not to use metal cookware in it using the convection option. So we don't want to use plastic cookware (recent bad press concerning chemicals leaching into food), cannot use metal, and have not see glass muffin tins for instance. Your suggestons would be appreciated, or real world examples of what you use in that unit to cook muffins, cakes, breads, etc. TIA.

I bought this flexible stuff at an RV show a year or so ago. I'm not sure what the material is, but it feels kind of rubbery and you can twist it. It's very light weight and comes in muffin pans, bread pans, square and oblong pans, bundt pans, etc. I think I've also seen this stuff at Camping World.

It's supposed to be perfect for convection ovens. Unfortunately, I haven't had the occasion to use them yet, so I can't tell you about performance. I'm not much of a cook, so not sure why I even bothered to buy them...poor John!

Don't know if your Advantium is the same as ours, but we can run ours three different ways:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE> <LI>In "Speed Cook" mode, which uses the convection/bake feature, the Advantium halogen browning lights, and the microwave all at the same time... thereby preventing the use of anything metal
<LI>In microwave-only mode (again, no metal)
<LI>As JUST a convection oven using "Bake" mode (since there's no microwaves, metal is OK)[/list]Look for a button on the control panel labeled "Oven/Bake"... that's the one that JUST runs the unit as an oven, no microwaves.

Happy baking!

Use Silicon bakeware, good in both convection and microwave. Flexible and lightweight.

And please don't believe all of the things in the press concerning anything to do with science. To say that the press is scientifically illiterate is an understatement. They have no idea how to determine whether or not a 'study' is valid and they often pick out the most irrelevant piece of data and blow it all out of proportion, or just plain get it wrong.

I have found that baking in the Silicon pans is not as ideal as it is advertised to be. Brownies or cakes break apart when you lift the pan because it is so flexible. I use corell or corning dishes most of the time in mine!

Correll or corning, that is the greatest stuff, next time we are in Chehalis or Lincoln City, OR, it's the factory outlet for me, to check out what they have. Silicon is great for some things, but for muffing pans, I don't think so. If the little lady cannot cook those muffings, life would not be complete.

Agreed. Corelle & Corning are the best.

But have you checked the control panel on your Advantium for a button marked "Oven/Bake"?

If you have one, you can use that setting and there won't be any microwaves being used - so you can use the METAL muffin pans you (probably) already own.

It's the Advantium/Speedcook option that you can't use metal with - it powers the Microwave in addition to the heating element and Halogen browning lights, so you can't put any metal in the oven for that cycle/feature.

Thank you, have some maintenance to do this evening, and I will check to see if we have the Oven/Bake button.
