Question:

I’ve been googling the question regarding koshering silicone mats and pot holders, etc. for Pesach. They can withstand the heat of boiling but I cannot find anything in writing…

Answer:

Silicone mats and pot holders should not be kashered for Pesach, and separate Pesach ones should be used. The reason for this is because silicone is a new material and it is not known if it can be kashered, therefore for Pesach we don’t kasher them.
