cooking with silver plate

Can I use silver plate items to cook with? Specifically, i have a dish that would make a perfect pie pan but since one rarely sees any plate cooking utensils I'm wondering if it's safe and if so, does it perform well in baking?

Re: cooking with silver plate

Hi there,

I wouldn't use your silver to cook with; there may be an ingredient that could cause a reaction, especially if that ingredient is hot. I would especially stay away from anything acidic, oranges and lemons.
