Advice for Using Silicone Cookware in the Microwave?

Q: My mother just gave me several silicone microwave cookware products from Lekue in an effort to help me cook healthy meals quickly. She sent a steam case, microwave pot, egg poachers, omelet maker and silicone bag for reheating leftovers. Do your readers have advice for where to start with trying out this kind of cooking? 

I'm wondering if your readers have any experience using the Lekue products and if they've had success with opting for the microwave instead of the stove or oven. I will give it a try, but I'm skeptical that the results will measure up to what I can cook in my dutch oven or cast iron skillet. If nothing else, the clean up should certainly be easy!
