How do you use 'Pam Spray On' these days? [Moved from General Topics board]

It appears that 'Pam Spray On' is still around and in use. I remember Quebec native Madame Benoit shilling for the product many moons ago. How are Chowhounds using the product these days?

    Works great when measuring out ingredients, especially with honey. Just spray the measuring spoon beforehand, and it'll slide right out.

      I spray it on the counter and my hands before kneading bread. Don't have to add any flour that way.

        Before firing up my gas grill, I spray the grid with PAM -- in fact, I think they have a formulation just for this. It REALLY helps to keep the food from sticking, especially fragile fish.

          Similar to Bakergal's--I spray down my counter before rolling out fondant to cover a cake. Works gorgeously, keeps the fondant supple, and I don't have to incorporate any extra powdered sugar.

          Also, light spray of olive oil variety on vegetables for a quick roast. Asparagus, kosher salt, and nutmeg makes me very happy, and only takes 10 minutes.

          I use pam when I oven roast something in a roasting pan with a rack. Spray on the bottom if I dont want to use the drippings for a gravy or sauce to make clean up easier.
