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 )
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.
