Olive Oil Misters and Sprayers

Why use an olive oil mister? Several reasons are a few I've come up with.

Use less oil
- If your fat intake is a concern, you can get far more coverage with much less oil when using a mister. It's great for spraying salad greens, bread, pasta, popcorn, cookie sheets, muffin tins, cast iron pans and more.

Less Mess
- Sometimes I mix salad dressing in a dressing bottle with a cork. (An olive oil mister won't work if you add crushed garlic or fresh basil to the dressing.) It's almost inevitable that there will be drips down the side of the bottle and a ring of oil left on the table afterwards or an entire plate of dinner left floating in a a sea of dressing. (If you have children, you can probably relate to that one.) An olive oil mister can make applying salad dressing much easier, even kind of fun for kids. I find it works well with my basic everyday oil and vinegar dressing.

It's economical, earth friendly and natural
- I've never purchased an aerosol cooking spray. I prefer not to pay more for added chemicals or contribute to the waste in our landfills. I had to laugh while reading about Pam's olive oil cooking spray on their website the other day, but it really isn't funny at all.

First, they compare the fat content of their spray with oil and butter, but they compare a one second spray with a tablespoon of oil or butter. That's hardly a fair comparison if you ask me. I know I could coat a 12 cup muffin tin with one tablespoon of olive oil, but there's no way I could do it with a one second shot from a spray can!

Then, they make the "fat free" claim. This is really good. You see, if a product contains less than a certain amount of fat it can make this claim. So say that amount is .5 grams per serving. The manufacturer simply defines a ridiculously small serving size in order to legally make a "fat free" claim. Such is the case here. It's oil, it can't be fat free. It contains fat along with grain alcohol, natural lecithin and propellant. This particular olive oil spray defines one serving as a one fifth of a second spray. Is it even humanly possible to spray for one fifth of a second?! Labels have become a word game, a puzzle that most of us don't have the time to decipher. It's deceptive, misleading and so frustrating, but that's a whole other story. I had better not even get started on that subject right now.

olive oil mister

An olive oil mister or sprayer is a healthy, less expensive, and convenient alternative. A mister works by pumping air into the container to create pressure for an aerosol kind of misty spray. I had a pampered chef pump mister, that didn't work that well for me and won't pump at all any more, so I've been shopping for a new one. There are many to choose from and I've read a lot of mixed reviews while trying to decide which one to buy. Some of the more popular ones are made by Norpro, Cuisipro, Misto and Hoffritz. Based on the reviews I've read and the fact that it is stainless steel so it blocks out light, I'm going to order the Cuisipro Stainless-Steel Spray Pump Non-Aerosol Mister.
