While silicone molds are usually more durable, there's a certain sturdiness you can only get with plastic molds -- i.e., no bowed out edges, so all of your bars come out perfectly straight. This mold washes easily and the cutting indentations are super clear and easy to slice. A comment of interest is that this mold has consistently resulted in 6 bars weighing about 3.9 oz while the remaining bars are well over 4 oz.

Our large rectangle slab tray mold is made from food grade plastic and can be used with melt & pour soap bases as well as cold process soap. This mold makes one slab of soap that can be cut into 8 rectangle bars, making it easier to produce larger batches of soap. Each bar measures approximately 3.9" x 1.9" x 1" and holds 4 ounces (weighted) of base. The entire tray holds 2 lbs of soap base. We recommend allowing your soap to cool for 24 hours for easier removal from the mold. If the bar won't release, place the mold in your freezer for 30-40 minutes and try again. We also recommend pouring your soap base at a maximum of 145°F. It's best to hand wash the mold with warm soapy water. Cleaning in the dishwasher or with hot water can warp the mold.

I definitely like this soap mold. It does its job just fine. However, I would recommend in investing in a nice silicone one instead. Silicone is easier to clean and lasts a lot longer than the plastic molds.
