Newly-formulated Pam cooking spray

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

    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.

      EWS, this is the trigger spray PAM.

      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.

        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.
