Smiley360 Mission: The New Pam Challenge

As a member of Smiley360, I am occasionally asked to participate in "missions" in which I try various products and give my feedback.

The most recent item I've been asked to try is Pam cooking spray.  It's manufacturers have reformulated it and say it works 70% better now.  They wanted the members of Smiley360 to put that claim to the test.

We were sent a coupon to purchase a can of Pam cooking spray for FREE, as well as the same for a can of Hunt's tomatoes (in case our recipe needed any, I suppose).  We also received a FREE large Pyrex casserole dish, that you will see in the pictures, and a Pam spatula.

Now let me just say that it has been a very, very long time since I have purchased Pam.  I have just about *always* purchased store brand cooking sprays, you know unless there was an awesome sale and I had a coupon that would triple or something.  And then I would just about *always* have to struggle and scrape thing off afterwards.

I have to say that my husband and I were AMAZED using this product.  First of all, I used it to spray the pans for all of my Thanksgiving Day baking, and not a single thing stuck.  Everything just slid right off of the pans.  I've since used it for simple things like baking chicken nuggets or popcorn shrimp, because those always stick also, but not with this stuff!

Tonight, I finally put that baking dish to the test.  I tweaked this enchilada casserole recipe just a bit.  I used chicken breast that I had marinated in picante sauce and slow cooked with some taco seasoning until it shredded.  I didn't have any enchilada sauce, so I used a cream of mushroom and a cream of chicken, and added a taco seasoning to that as well.  It turned out delicious!

Here's how I made it.  First I sprayed the bottom of the dish with the Pam.  I usually spread sauce on the bottom before lining with tortillas because it always sticks, but I wanted to really put the Pam to the test, so I put the tortillas right on in there.  Then I layered on the meat, sauce cheese, more tortillas, repeat.



Everything was fully cooked, so I just needed to pop it in the oven about 20 minutes to melt the cheese and heat the sauce thoroughly.  When it was time to serve, here's what happened:

 

*Sniff*  It's beautiful!  My husband, after the first use, decided that the scrubbing and scraping saved is worth spending the extra money on, and I've since for it on sale at Tom Thumb, and matched a coupon up with the sale to snag another smaller can of it for $1.49.  This is definitely going on my "be on the lookout for sales and coupons" list.

If you'd like to try it for yourself, risk free, Pam is currently offering a Money Back Guarantee form on their facebook page.  I'm pretty sure you won't need it though!  ;)


Disclosure:  I was not compensated for this post other than the free products.  This post was not even required of me.  I chose to write it because I liked the stuff so much I wanted to show and share.  All opinions are my own.

Awesome... I too have been buying the cheaper brands of cooking spray but will have to give the new Pam a try, especially for those hard to clean dishes.
Thanks for sharing.
