Pampered Chef: Nonstick cooking spray

    The Stoneware Inspirations (the new cookbook) is calling for spraying the stones with nonstick cooking spray. Most people are going to think that means PAM. What are you going to suggest?

    PAM will leave the stone sticky, I know it did mine.

    I've been wondering the same thing. I know I don't want to use Pam, but when I hear nonstick cooking spray, that's what I think! Can we substitute oil from the kitchen spritzer instead?

    I was reading through some of the recipes in the new cookbook, too, and was surprised to see they didn't include the Kitchen Spritzer, because my first reaction was "Pam?" Use the spritzer! Also, if you haven't tried any of the recipes yet, I strongly recommend the balsamic and onion chicken and the chocolate-peanut butter torte. Both are scrumptious! (I must admit, I made the torte two days in a row. It didn't last :D )

    Definately suggest to use the kitchen spritzer and tell your customers the reasons why. Bring a can of PAM and read the ingredients to them, you'll probably sell more spritzers that way. :)

    I will tell everyone to use the Kitchen Spritzer or at least brush with oil. I have quit using PAM after what I have read on this site about it. Thank you to everyone. I was just surprised the new cookbook used that wordage.

    Pam will ruin the non stick properties of the stone

    My husband insisted on using Pam on the stoneware muffin pan. Well, I can tell you first hand that Pam or any aerosol non-stick spray will absolutely ruin the non stick properties of the stone. The damage done is irreparable to date. If someone thinks you're just trying to push the kitchen spritzer then suggest the pastry brush and a small bit of good canola oil or do like Grandma used to do and drizzle some oil on the stone and spread it around with a paper towel! I've also found that a bit of Crisco works well. I put a small baggie over my hand, scoop a bit of Crisco out, spread it on the stone where needed, then flip the bag inside out and toss. No mess.

    I'm wondering if they're planning to discontinue the kitchen spritzer and that's why they SAY cooking spray? I hope not but I know a lot of people complain about it clogging.
