Review: Misto Oil Spritzer

When I was scrutinizing my master grocery list, eyeing just how many items I could eliminate, I noticed “cooking spray.”

“Cooking spray should be an easy thing to eliminate,” I thought.

Turns out I use it a lot. Sometimes you don’t know these things until you do without. In our early years of marriage I didn’t buy cooking spray; I thought of it as a luxury item. But back then I also kept Crisco on hand and used that to grease pans.

Now I avoid hydrogenated fats, Crisco included, and butter browns and burns too easily to grease pans going into high heat.

There is always parchment paper and Silpats, which I do love to use.

However, I roast a lot of vegetables and had come to rely on the shortcut of spraying the pan and then the vegetable with canola oil cooking spray. Drizzling & tossing uses so much more oil and is so much more messy!

Stop buying expensive cans of cooking oil. One affordable purchase allows you to refill with the oil of your choice. The Misto is a kitchen staple for me!
In all, I missed my cooking spray.

A Simple Solution

So, I decided I would spring for a Misto oil spritzer and see if it really did work. I had heard some negative reviews, but then I saw some tips for avoiding clogging and other breakdowns, and I decided it would solve my roasted vegetable problem nicely.

I love it!
