    I have heard by spraying WD40 on the dish it prevents the snow from sticking. I have also heard using "Pam" but in recent posts, its not recommended due to attracting bugs during the summer months. Anyone else out there have any other ideas?

    STOP PRESS............. I just got a tip for Ice and Snow but I have not got round to trying it yet. Cut an onion in half and rub it gently all over the dish reflector, seemingly the sulfuric compounds coat the "dish" and prevents ice and snow from sticking, use the other half for your car windshields same deal stops the ice from forming : )

    use Tobacco

    I have used tobacco leaves on my windshields for preventing water to stick to my wndshields. I guess that may be worth trying on the dish also
