Newly-formulated Pam cooking spray

I saw a TV ad claiming it has 99% less residue. Anyone try it yet?

  1. No, but I'll be curious to see what others say. I switched from Pam to store-brand years ago due to the noxious smell of Pam. My storebrand had (slightly) better ingredients, as well. I pretty much regard spray grease as a necessary evil.

      I used to use Pam, but switched to using a mister like sprayer from Crate & Barrel. I find it function as well for most of the same applications, if not better than Pam.

    2. It does leave less residue. I couldn't say for sure what percentage less, but it does seem to be a pretty significant amount. Having bought the Pam because I needed it, not noticing the claims until after using it, I did say to myself, so that's why the bowl was easier to clean.

      1. At the cafeteria at work, I noticed that the grill cooks use a trigger-spray Pam brand release product, I asked them about it and was told that you can't buy it for consumer purposes. So I looked it up on Amazon, and didn't find it there, either, which surprised me. I'd like to get some.
