[Sca-cooks] PAM stuff stripping off the seasoning on iron ware?

Stefan, to be perfectly honest, I'm not actually sure if it's the PA or if it's the egg whites that I'm scrambling--a couple of times a week, I have eggs for breakfast, and I use a combination of 1 egg and a half-cup of egg whites.  Something in the dish completely strips the seasoning off the bottom of my pan, every time....

  Subject: [Sca-cooks] PAM stuff stripping off the seasoning on iron ware?

  Last Friday, Maire asked about non-stick pans and mentioned:

  <<< For years, I've been making do just fine with 3 cast-iron frying  
  pans, but I've recently run into some issues with using them, and  
  would like to acquire a decent, 9-inch non-stick pan.  (Said reasons  
  being that I've noticed that the iron pans turn some of my chicken  
  dishes a really nasty grey, and also, as I'm on a diet and using a  
  spray oil for scrambling eggs and the PAM stuff is stripping the  
  seasoning right out of my cast iron.) >>>

  We've discussed here previously that the pan material (iron or  
  copper) can change the color of the food cooked in it. But this is  
  the first I've heard that using PAM or other similar spray oil  
  products can strip off the, often hard won, seasoning on iron pots  
  and pans.

  Has anyone else had this problem? Does it occur with just certain  
  brands of spray on oil? I'm wondering if this is a warning I need to  
  add to my  iron-pot-care-msg file.
