Intro: Putting a Sugru Rolled Edge on Metal Work
My counter top oven has a maximum pan width of 12"
and I have always wanted some JUMBO muffin pans which are over 12".
Cutting down the large and extra large muffin pans from 6 cups to 4 cups
using large metal sheers, left a sharp edge on the pan.
So I used surgu to add a safe edge to the pans.
this is how.
Step 1: Sugru to the Rescue
I tried tackling the sharp edge beforehand with a grinding bit and a drill
which managed to smooth it, not finger safe but certainly unsharp.
However if i were to do this again I would skip this step
i think the surgru would have gripped it better.
As it is, I used TWO sachets of Sugru for each pan.
Step 2: Roll the Edge
Roll out the Sugru to the length of the pan edge plus a smidgen more to bumper the corners.
Don't roll out the sugru on something you can't scrub
the color sugru bleeds color.
But it came off easily with a scrubbie pad.
Step 3: Sculpy
Once the sugru is molded onto the sharp edge with approximately a third of the sugru above and below and the edge,
smooth and mold it for a few minutes until it was smooth and even up and down the length.
at least as smooth as i could make it, i used a bone folder but you can use anything like a knife handle.
Step 4: Easy Bake
according to the website sugru is resistant from -50°C to +180°C. which is a max of 356ºF
most everything I cooked in this sort of pan is baked at 325º to 350º
Popovers cook at 400ºF - 450ºF so it will be a good experiment on one of the pans.
But if i just remember not to use them for popovers i should be fine.
I think even if the Sugru changes it's texture or form as long as it doesn't fall off then it will have done its job.
i will update this with the results.
