How do you grease your pans?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Just wondering, how do you grease your pans? Or how do you get them ready so the cake comes out easily and not get crunchy? Pam? Homemade mixture? Parchment?

Parchment & pan spray. Easiest, quickest & pretty much foolproof.
Speed is important in a commercial setting, so I won't waste time making my own pan grease mixture.

Pan spray for me too, I used to buy the wiltons one (not the spray the easy bake one) and I have made my own too but I don't find it worth it.

I line the bases and then spray the sides.

I don't grease them at all.  I just line the tins without any butter or oil or fat.

 

I was told that by doing this, it helps the cakes to rise and stops the outside getting so crispy....  and I have to say since I've stopped greasing with Trex (same as Crisco, I believe) before lining with the baking parchment, I do find this to be the case!

I make my own pan grease in multiple containers and store in place of store bought.

 I spray the bottom of the pan with spray grease, line it with wax paper (just the bottom of the pan), and spray it well with spray grease again. As I've said before, I am a spray grease maniac. :grin:

a safety thought for you sprayers--

 

consider wearing a dust mask till the spray dissipates from the air--just use the one you wear when you airbrush--

 

or get one for the pan sprays then when you get your airbrush you'll be all set--

 

OR walk outside or into another room to spray--you only got that one set of lungs--keep 'em pretty & pink!

 

--we now return you to your regularly scheduled grease thread--

 

i just use parchment for the same reasons as relznik plus it's easy and i'm lazy

 

to release you might need to reheat the bottom of the pan moving it over a burner for 5 seconds --bam! done!

I line the bottom of the pans with parchment and don't do anything to the sides unless I know it's a recipe that will overflow, then I use a parchment collar. No grease or spray at all.

Pam for baking works great for me. If its a really large cake I sometimes line the bottom with parchment paper too, just to be safe. icon_smile.gif

I spray the bottom only with Bakers Joy, and collar the sides so it can rise up higher.

I just recently I tried 'Pam spray for baking' from the grocery store.

 

It worked OK, and there were few crumbs with a soft edge. When the cake was 'done' the edges had pulled away nicely from the pan. It came out of the pan easily.

Spraying the pans over the sink.....just a few seconds and it's done.  Pretty handy.  

I Have only done this on the last 4 cakes though so It's not an expert opinion by any means.

For all of the people that said they use pan spray, which do you use? Pam? Another brand?

post #14 of 20
I usually use the brand my bakery supplier sends me. Can't remember the name. At home, either Costco brand or Pam. I have not seen one work any better than another.

I use just about any spray and haven't noticed any difference in using any of them. :)
