I also use Bakers Joy. I purchase it from Walmart. I usually buy 10 at a time. It works really well and is easy to use. Much better than the cake release which takes too much time to me and it is messier. I live in Louisiana and it sells for $1.87.

I switched from Bakers Joy to Crisco Flour Spray. The sprayhead doesn't tend to clog up as easily on the Crisco as the Bakers Joy.

And yes, when it's on sale, I clean off the shelves. icon_smile.gif

Some people don't like the spray because it tends to cause little holes in the sides of the cake. If you let your sprayed pan sit for at least 20 minutes before filling with batter, all those little bubbles will have popped, resulting in a nice, smooth cake side.

I love using Bakers Joy. It has always worked great for me and the price is right at wal-mart. So much easier than greasing and flouring.

I swear by it. I always make sure I have 3 cans in my kitchen. As soon as one runs out, I get another can the very next trip to the store. I've run out before and had to use the grease/flower method.

Years ago when it first came out, the closest store to me at the time decided to stop carrying it since it's sales were so light. I spoke to the manager and convinced him that it was just new and give it a chance. He made a special order for me. Over time, sales picked up and now I can always find it at almost every store.

Stock it and they will come... icon_biggrin.gif

I use which ever is on sale...LOL! I went to Walmart last year and they had their Crisco brand spray on sale for $1 each can! Someone had accidentally over purchased it and so they were selling the surplus dirt cheap... I bought a case of it. I still have spray and will for quite some time...LOL!

Wow thanks DianeLM for the tip. I love the Bakers Joy but had the same problem with the air holes on the edge so I stopped using it. Found a cake release recipe on the net & have been using it. 1 cup crisco, 3/4 veg. oil & 1 cup flour, mix well and store air tight container. Apply with pastry brush. Love this too but back to having to clean up another item. I'll use this in a pinch, but now with your tip I can go back to my fav. Bakers Joy.

The one and only can of Bakers Joy I have ever purchased clogged up on the 3rd or 4th spray out of the can! After unsuccessfully trying everything to get it unclogged it ended up in the trash and I swore it off forever. No time for stuff like that!
Now I make my own by stirring together until smooth, 1 cup of Crisco Oil to 1 cup of flour. Simply stir it up well then slather it inside your pan with a pastry brush. Works 100% of the time, it's cheap and it last a lot longer than a can of spray thumbs_up.gif

I LOVE baker's joy. I don't have the problems with air holes in my cakes. I usually spray and get my pans ready before I start mixing. Maybe that's why.

Yep, I use it all the time. I worry about the homemade cake release. I only bake once a month so I think that the homemade stuff might go rancid by the time I get around to using it. Also, I really like the convenience of the spray. Anything that makes it easier for me to do a task is a wonderful thing.

LOL, well I must be the only one who doesn't like it! I think it gives cakes a denser crust than when using spray Pam I simply use spray Pam. icon_smile.gif

I have been using it, but I am cake-tarded. I put too much on and then it ends up on the top corner of my cake where it boils the side of the cake making it a crunchy mess. It's a sad say when a girl can't even bake a box cake with good results! Oh I don't think the problem is the Baker's Joy. icon_smile.gif

I use bakers Joy also but I do keep the crisco and flour mixture available in case I run out (Walmarts about 30 minutes away!!)

No need to shout, we can hear you just fine. icon_wink.gif

I use PAM with flour. It is cheaper than Baker's Joy and I think it works better (Baker's Joy tends to clog up on me, PAM never has).

I've tried a couple different brand, but found that Baker's Joy works best for me.

Hi brandiwyne,

Don't feel bad, you'd be surprised at how many people don't know that typing in all caps is considered yelling -- no biggie.
