I've had these molds for two years and have had problems with them retaining odors from the start. They smell like a freezer smells when it is left unplugged and defrosted. There are a number of discussions on different forums about silicone kitchen products and the odors that they retain. Most of them complain about things like onions leaving a smell. I'm not sure what has impregnated the smell so deeply in this case because I haven't been making onion pops.
It is too bad that they fail in the smell and taste departments, because I really like the shape and the tactile experience. At this point I've thrown them out because the bad smell also produces a bad taste. I suspect that other silicone popsicle molds suffer from the same defect.
