Has anyone tried Pam For Baking? Is it better than the alternatives to the extent where I should add another item to the pantry?

Haven't tried it. Isn't this the stuff that also has flour in it, thereby greasing and flouring in one well-aimed spritz?

I prefer to use the wrapper that butter comes in or a paper towel and some neutral oil.

I use a commercial product called Bakelene. It's a non-alcohol spray that contains starch.

I tried consumer retail products in the past and have not been happy with them.

The Bakelene works like magic. I have an intricate bundt cake pan that was almost impossible to use the old way, spreading the grease with waxed paper. With the spray stuff, it's a simple task and the cake just falls right out without any sticking.

If you can't find Bakelene, try the Pam stuff. It might be an improvement over the consumer stuff I bought a few years ago.

BTW, Bakelene comes in two forms. One for cakes and the other for bread, so pay attention to which one you're buying.

I use one called 'Baker's Joy' (I think); The only time I really use it is when I'm doing a bundt cake - lots easier to get in all those little crevices!

Marmalady, that's what I use. I'd like to try the pam though & see which one I like best.

Crews, I guess it would depend on whether the recipe called for just a 'greased' pan or a 'greased and floured' pan, as to wether you'd use Pam or Baker's Joy.
