Pam for Baking, anybody seen it lately?

I stocked up on Pam for Baking but am down to my last half a can. Has anybody seen it lately?

Please let me know where it might be available.

Or "Baker's Joy" or similar.

It's really a foolproof product for getting Bundt cakes out of the pan in one piece!!

    I've been a long-time fan of Baker's Joy too! It hasn't been available in Ontario for quite some time now. I even contacted the manufacturer and they confirmed that it was no longer available here. (This was quite a while ago - so maybe that's changed.)

    I always stock up on several cans when I'm in the U.S.

      The last time I saw Baker's Joy was at Linens & Things.

      William Sonoma sometimes stocks a spray called Bake Kleen (I think that's the name).

      Pam for Baking has been the easiest to find of the sprays, but not lately, where I've been looking lately anyways.

      I guess it might be back to the tedious process of oiling and dusting with flour of pans.

      Thanks for your reply, if I find any of these spray products anywhere, will post.

        I've seen it in the salad dressing / oils section at Sobeys - I think Pam is everywhere? You could always call ConAgra and ask them.

          Pam for Baking is a separate product. It's an oil spray that includes a fine flour. It takes the place of the "grease and flour" step in baking.

            I've checked Metro, Independent, Wal-Mart and Superstore. I knew I've seen it somewhere. Maybe Sobey's, I'll try there next, thanks for the reminder!

        Check No Frills. I found Pam for Baking at No Frills on Centre Street near Dufferin last week.

            I found a full shelf of Pam at the No Frills at Centerpoint mall (Yonge & Steeles) yesterday.

            Loblaws in Bayview & Hwy 7 (Richmond Hill). Strange location though....on top of one of those open fridge in the meat department....around the fresh turkey. :)

              Who'd have thought of looking there? The same area where they have the horseradish and refrigerated pickles?

              Thanks for the tip.

              Middydd, the new Loblaws flyer - effective November 13-19, has Pam Baking listed on page 8. $349 / 141g can, apparently $0.50 less than regular price. Hopefully they will ensure they have it in stock at most stores... probably a good time to stock up again.

                Thanks!! I'm thinking this has become a seasonal item, more available during the holiday season, so a good idea to stock up.

                Now, to figure out how many cans will last until next October/November or so...

                Really, nothing compares to these sprays to get Bundt cakes out of their pans.

                  Grr...the Loblaws at Yonge/Yonge Blvd. apparently doesn't carry it. I said "but it's in your flyer" and the answer was "not all stores carry the same stock". Grr.

                  I saw a 2 pack of regular PAM and a single Pam Baking all packaged together at Costco today (Burlington store).

                  I I forget how much the 3 pack was but I think around $10

                    I picked up some Pam for baking at Leslie & Lakeshore Superstore yesterday. There was a stand alone display shelf in store.

                      Thanks to all for the leads.

                      I'm thinking this is a seasonal item and it's a good idea to stock up while it's available.

                          You may not need another siting, but I saw some today at the Longos at YorkMills and Leslie - $4.99
