Whether you consider yourself a pro baker or a wannabe who binges The Great British Baking Show, cupcakes are one of the best and easiest desserts to make for a party. You can get really creative with your flavors, fillings and toppings. But, instead of using standard cupcake wrappers, here’s a hack: Swap them out for these reusable silicone baking cups.

There are more than a few benefits to using a reusable baking cup. For one obvious reason, there’s less waste, which is always good for the environment, and you won’t have to buy them every time you bake, so you’ll save money. However, the food-grade silicone also provides an effortless release, so you won’t need to use any grease or cooking spray if you don’t want to. Your cupcakes should pop right out! And, they’re freezer, microwave and oven-safe (of course), as well as dishwasher-friendly.

This rainbow set of reusable baking cups on Amazon costs $5.39 for a 12-pack, which includes two of each color. The reusable baking cups are constantly on Amazon’s list of best-selling kitchen products and rank number one in baking cups, too. Over 37,500 Amazon shoppers give the cups a five out of five-star rating, too.

“These are perfect,” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “They are fun and colorful, and despite feeling thin, they are very durable and hold up to oven temperatures no problem. I didn’t have to adjust baking times or grease the cups. My muffins came out really easily with minimal residue. A little tedious to clean because the crumbs get caught in the grooves, but not a huge deal.”

“A must-have for your kitchen!” another Amazon reviewer said. “To bake, I placed them on a cookie sheet and sprayed the inside with olive oil cooking spray before pouring in my banana oatmeal batter. Baked for 20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. After letting them cool, with just picking one up and turning it to the side, the muffin fell right out! What!!! BEST RESULT I have EVER gotten removing baked muffins! It doesn’t even compare to using paper liners or spraying my non-stick muffin pan!”

If you’re planning to go to any holiday parties in the near future and want to bring perfectly-baked cupcakes, get these reusable baking cups. Seriously, you won’t regret it when you toss them in the dishwasher while you finish off the leftovers.
