Understand that the silicon gel can be recycled by heating the pink silicon gel in the oven till it become blue... but will the oven be safe for processing food?

Think should be safe, It release water vapour, but heard that to maintain its life longer, you must do it under certain temp.... Not sure too... :dunno:

Yes you can. The whole idea is to apply sufficient heat to release the moisture from the pink silica gel until it turns blue.

Later he kana food posioning then no one jio u go shooting liao how... haaa...

Well Well Silca gel cheap cheap only mahz... One bottle about $3.5 to $4.5... and one bottle using last me 3 mths... 1/3 bottle per mth, change every mth, so it is not exactly that expensive. When you use microwave oven and heat hor, dun put too hight temp... try like 10sec 10sec 10sec util u see them turn back blue lor... silca gel i think is posionous one lor... remember in thos cracker sure got one packet of stuff say 'Posion, do not consume', it is the same thing lorz...

Actually when you fry it on a pan you should do it slowly, at low temp. Coz if you heat it too high a temp it will take longer to cool, hence it will absorb more moisture when colling down (my theory only). High temp may also cause it to crack when you fry it. If you want a electronic dry cabinet, wait for the March IT show, should be cheaper with delivery.
