Macaron macarons are a classic recipe.
They’re creamy, buttery, and easy to make.
And they’re gluten-free too!
But there’s one little detail you need to know before you take them to work.
If you want to make them in a dishwasher, they’ll likely have a little brownish residue on the bottom of the pan.
The dishwasher will probably also leave a residue on your fingers, especially if you’ve been using it for a long time.
The good news is that this residue won’t make the macaroon sticky or flaky, and you’ll be able to remove it in the dishwasher.
So, what to do if you have a problem?
First, make sure that you’re using the right pan for the macaron you’re making.
If your dishwasher is equipped with a stainless steel or ceramic pan, then you should be fine.
If not, use a silicone baking pan instead.
The silicone pans will provide you with a less sticky, but more porous surface, and the residue won:a) Not stick to your hands, so you can easily remove it when you’re finished, and b) Not stain the surface.
That said, silicone pans can leave a stain on the surface when used in a high-heat dishwasher setting, so be sure to check the label carefully.
If it says “silicone” on the label, you’re in luck!
There’s no need to worry.
Silicone pans are much more durable than stainless steel, and it’s much easier to clean than copper or aluminum pans.
The only downside to silicone pans is that they’re not as absorbent as stainless steel pans, so if you’re planning to use silicone in a kitchen dishwasher for a while, be sure not to use a metal or ceramic pot or pan.
For this recipe, I used silicone, but if you don’t have the time or money to make a silicone-based dishwasher dishwasher appliance, then stainless steel would work as well.
If that’s not your cup of tea, try using silicone-free stainless steel cookingware.
These pots will make macaroons more pliable and less sticky.
They’ll also help reduce the amount of residue you’ll leave behind.
