The PAM No Residue Challenge

About a week ago, the folks from PAM reached out to see if I wanted to take their PAM No Residue challenge.

You know that sticky residue that’s left behind on pots and baking sheets? That sticky stuff that doesn’t seem to want to wash off? Well, PAM’s no-stick spray aims to stop that residue from developing.

I can never resist a challenge.

So I took them up on their challenge to compare new PAM No Residue against a competitor’s spray.

Would PAM really leave behind no residue? As a person who really, really, really, dislikes scrubbing dishes, I was sure hoping so.

So, I decided to make as much of a cooked on sticky mess as possible, and then compare results.

Here’s what I did.

I used one frying pan for PAM No Residue and another for a competitor.

Then, I fried latkes (messy, right?) in PAM No Residue  or a competitor and washed by hand.

But I wasn’t done. That’s not sticky enough.

I stir-fried some veggies in PAM No Residue  or a competitor to see if I could really make a mess, and then washed my pans by hand again.

Finally, I just sprayed the pans with PAM No Residue  or a competitor and let it bake on at medium heat for 10 minutes. I then washed by hand.

Time to test to see which pans had the sticky, yucky residue left behind.

We rubbed a dry paper towel vigorously, for the same amount of time and using the same pressure, on the PAM No Residue pan, and the competitor’s pan.

I was honestly surprised by the results. I’d baked on some seriously sticky, messy stuff onto those pans, but I couldn’t see any residue left behind on the PAM No Residue pans.

The competitor, on the other hand, left quite a bit of sticky black residue behind. UGH.

Looks like PAM No Residue’s the clear cut winner!
