Teflon Sealing a Groover

So, my BF and I pulled the trigger and bought a groover, and a friend recommended Teflon sealing the thing to prevent sticking. Have any of you tried and succeeded at such a project.
Any particular products you would recommend for going about this project?

What kind of groover did you buy??

If it is a eco safe unit, when it is cleaned out and just before use, I spray a healthy layer of PAM spray inside. Makes clean out a lot easier in my opinion.

That is genius... never would have thought of that unconventional usage of baking spray. It is one of the eco safe tanks, so must do it on our next trip!

We also use Pam spray. Works great. Make sure your first "user" gives the inside of the groover a generous spray and you're......good to go!

Make sure it is cooking spray, not baking spray

Why not, I'm baking brownies in the groover anyway.

I would be curious about using silicone lubricant spray. It dries completely and would probably resist washout.
