please continue to do so when cooking in PanSaver®.
are some possible reasons for PanSaver® sticking
to my pans?
PanSaver® should not stick to your pans. However,
if it does there may be several possible explanations:
- Be sure to preheat your ovens.
If an oven is not preheated,
it will often “spike” into
higher temperatures to quickly
achieve it’s setting. Preheating
- Make certain no part of your
is touching the oven wall. The
oven wall is almost always considerably
hotter than the setting indicates.
- Be certain you are starting
with a clean pan. If the pan
is not clean, old food can stick
to the liner.
- Since some electrical warmers
have “hot spots” which
can create sticking, we suggest
adding a small amount of water
prior to lining the pan with

of water before inserting the PanSaver® liner.
This creates a suction and hold PanSaver® snug
against the pan.
is there sometimes moisture in my pan after cooking
Under normal use, condensation is trapped between the pan and
cooks say lining their pans with PanSaver® slows
them down. How can I prevent this?
Don’t have your cooks line the pans at all! PanSaver® is
used most effectively when the dishwasher removes the used PanSaver®,
rinses and sanitizes the pan, and then relines the pan him/herself!
Your pans can be stacked with the PanSaver® already
in them. When your cook reaches for a pan, it is already lined
and ready to use. The entire operation is now faster and more
is PanSaver® cost effective?
