I recently joined Smiley360, which is the world's first social media powered community designed to bring you new things to try and share. I was offered a "mission" (which is an opportunity for Smiley to send you something to try out) to try the new and improved PAM cooking spray. To sweeten the deal, they included a 9x13 Pyrex pan, coupons for a free can of PAM and a free can of Hunts tomatoes, a spatula, and a recipe booklet. I chose to accept the mission and try the products.
While looking through the recipe booklet, I decided I would make the King Ranch Chicken. So, I purchased the ingredients I didn't already have (yes I was lazy and purchased rotisserie chicken!) and assembled them into a delicious casserole for our dinner.
I was skeptical that the PAM would not do any better than the (store brand) cooking spray I have been using. I thought all cooking sprays left an ooey--gooey sticky mess on the pans after baking. Guess what! I was WRONG! (In cases like this, I'm happy to be wrong!) My first clue that "this is a good thing" was when I dipped out my portion of casserole to put on my plate. It came out of the pan cleanly and didn't leave bits behind.
Wanting to see if the PAM worked well with dried on food, I left the empty pan sitting on the counter overnight, and washed it the next morning. I'm happy to report that the pan came clean easily and quickly. There was no ooey-gooey sticky mess on the sides or handles of the pan from baked-on spray.
As you can see, the Pyrex came out of the sink as shiny and clean as new. I'm sold on the new and improved PAM. I'm also sold on Smiley360. Why don't you sign up and accept a few missions of your own? AND - If you'd like to see for yourself how great the new and improved PAM works, here's a coupon for 50 cents off your next purchase.
Disclosure: I received the above mentioned Pam kit (coupons, pan, spatula, recipes) for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are my own.
