Thread: Is there a good alternative to PAM spray?

    Default Is there a good alternative to PAM spray?

    PAM spray is great except for its delivery system -- if I use it everyday it
    is fine, but if I use it sporadically it hardens and clogs up the nozzle,
    and I end up tossing it away when it becomes gungy looking, wasting it. Who
    wants to soak and clean the sray head every time you use a tiny squirt.

    I have tried using oils and greases as a substitute in baking, etc. but
    nothing beats PAM for this. Does anybody know of a substitute that works as
    well that you can just brush or wipe on?

    I switched from Pam to the new Crisco spray some time ago. I like it much
    better, and have never had the nozzle clog. Having said that, for many
    things I use either olive oil or vegetable oil that I brush on with a nylon
    pastry brush.

    I buy the BJs house brand of spray and the nozzle has never clogged. I
    get two large cans for a bit more than the price of one smaller PAM.

    And it lasts forever without going rancid.

    When I say sporadic usage, I actually mean more like rare usage, so it sits
    in the cupboard long periods. This makes it even more costly having to toss
    it because I end up using very little of it.

    Isn't there a lecithin and/or other component that makes those PAM,
    Crisco-type sprays a better separator than plain oils? It would seem that
    whatever the mixture is it would be available in forms other than areosols.

    But brushing really does not work as well for, say, greasing and/or
    flouring cake pans or a bowl for proofing dough.

    Yes, liquid lecithin, which is available in pint bottles (maybe it's a
    quart) at health food stores. It's pretty thick, so you might want to
    dilute it with a little canola oil or alcohol. A bottle of the stuff
    lasts about forever.

    Just turn the can upside down and use that for the last spritz on the pan.
    That will clean the nozel for the next time.

    Suprised to hear that from you... professional bakers grease pans by
    brushing with solid shortening... none use a spray, they value their
    lungs.

    I do that with paint and it works but it when you do it with the PAM you
    still have to soak the nozzle in boiling water to get it clean. I'm going to
    try the liquid lecithin.
