Product Reviews of Cooking Spray

Most likely mother started using cooking spray when it first came onto the marketplace. I know that she has found various brands to be useful. Pam, the first cooking spray was introduced to the public back in the late 50s and early 60s.

They are useful to prevent foods from sticking to the pan, skillet, baking sheets and grill. People have also found other uses for cooking spray since it is a great lubricant and may be useful in a pinch when you need to get something in a tight place or out of a tight place.

However, those uses may not be what cooking spray was created for in the beginning...

It's Less Messy

Cooking spray is less messy, while cooking, baking or grilling...

How to Apply

After using cooking sprays since they first came out, we have found that they are easier to use, while you no longer have too manually apply oil or grease to a baking pan, cookie sheet, skillet, saucepan, grill and so much more. To use cooking spray, you simply follow the directions on the label.

This is how to use cooking spray while applying it to your cooking utensils and bake ware. Take the cap off of course, and then point the spray nozzle in the direction of the area of the pan you will be cooking or baking on and sparingly apply it to the object you are spraying to prevent food from sticking to it. Cooking spray makes it so much easier when you need to apply a lubricant to any type of cooking surface. It makes a messy job cleaner when you are preparing food recipes.

Cooking Spray

Mazola Original Naturally Cholesterol Free Canola and Sunflower

I was shopping one day and do try to get what I need as well as pick up things I know I am running short on at the house. I found this can of Mazola Original Naturally Cholesterol Free Canola and Sunflower cooking spray on the grocery shelf along with a couple of other brands that we have used in the past. I noticed that this product was even cheaper than the non-brand or store-brand product, which is the reason I chose to purchase the product, perhaps it was on sale that day.

However, since it was cheaper I figured that I would give it a try to see how well it works.

It includes 100% Pure Ingredients with no calories, no fat, no sodium, no carbohydrates and no proteins. It is good for cholesterol-free cooking, calorie-free cooking and fat-free cooking, which makes it a great choice for anyone on a diet. You can use it in cooking pans, on grills, salad molds and cooking utensils, while cooking various types of meats including chicken, seafood and anything you may want to stir-fry or sauté.

It is recommendable for cooking such things that may stick to the pan such as muffins, pancakes and even eggs.

No More Sticking to the Pan

A large cast-iron skillet is a useful cooking tool. Use them to make all sorts of recipes.


Skillets - Frying Pans

Some of the kitchen tools you may need to use cooking spray on may include skillets and frying pans. Goodness, knows that things are bound to stick without something to prevent it from sticking to the skillet. Cooking spray can help reduce this problem, while you are sauteing or frying various types of food in a pan.

Some may prefer to use other things to prevent sticking, while cooking, frying, baking or grilling - and that is just fine too. Choose things that work best for you.

Jello Molds

Preparing main dish and side dish recipes are not the only time, you may find non-stick spray to come in handy. For instance, while making desserts you may need to apply cooking spray to Jello molds for an easy release and a pretty dessert.

It is easy to apply. It helps you create a lovely and mouthwatering dessert dish without the worry of tearing the mold up before it is served to family or guests.

Cooking Spray

Mazola Original Naturally Cholesterol Free Canola and Sunflower cooking spray makes a claim on its can that says, "Unbeatable No-Stick" and I have to say that it definitely lives up to this claim. Honestly, I do believe that I like using this particular cooking spray much better than any other type of cooking spray that I have used in the past. However, you may have your own personal preferences in the type of cooking spray you might like to use.

This particular cooking spray works very well for quick pan release regardless of what type of food I may be cooking. For instance, while making chocolate chip cookies they slide right off the pan without tearing, which is always a good thing. While using this product and cooking eggs, they never stick either and we all know, how much of a problem that can be when we are not using a reliable cooking spray product.

If you have not already tried using Mazola cooking spray, you may want to try it yourself for all your non-stick cooking and baking projects.

    I only use cooking spray for muffins and such, and I use my grocery store's house brand. Butter is better, though, in my book.
