    Do you dust with flour, use oil then flour, butter them, or use a cooking spray? What is your "go to" method for treating your baking pans?

    Not all of my pans are non-stick. Even some of the ones that claim to be aren't so much.

    I love non-stick pans. And yes, mine do stick, but not as bad as regular pans. I usually use baking spray with flour in it for baking, and regular non-stick spray for other foods.

    Yes, I also have some non-stick pans that work better than regular pans, but not nearly as well as they should, based on the name. I sometimes spray with a Pam type spray, but if it's something delicate that really needs to slide out easily or will fall apart, I usually spray and then add a coating of flour, just to be sure.

    The flour spray does work pretty well. Sometimes, I do like you said, @Diane.

    I would love to get a hold of some baking pans that really don't stick. I remember seeing some old commercial where the muffins (or maybe they were cupcakes?) practically flew right out of the pan. I want that.. ha ha.

    Well unfortunately the answer is not well. I am always spending money on baking ware and pots and pans, and it has to be more than the average person spends. I feel like I just suffer from a lack of space and a good place to put everything, so it ends up getting messy and that means that grime and grunge starts to build up quickly. Hopefully this will change soon, though.

    I am not sure I understand the question fully because at a glance I would say I treat my pans badly. I use, wash and just stick them away out of sight. I have many that are rusty because I have not used them in years but don't want how to throw them out since I hear they can be restored.

    I don't have any non stick pans that I can think of. When baking I grease and flour where necessary and recently when I made some scones I used a clean baking sheet plain and simple.
