Avoid Heat Damage
* Only use a lazy red flame (NEVER a blue flame torch).
* Flame should be applied only to the material you are trying to burn (not the silicone).
Direct, prolonged, and/or excessive heat on silicone WILL damage the piece leading to premature failure (tears, melting, burning).
Proper Bowl Removal
To remove the stainless steel bowl, hold the piece in your non-dominant hand. With your dominant hand, press your thumb into the bottom of the bowl and gently roll to the side and out of the silicone in a smooth action.
This action should be done carefully as silicone can tear when forced or if already damaged.
