What Are Oil Sprayers and Why Do You Need One? Plus Cathy’s Fave
Oil Sprayers: What Are They and Why You Need One
When I bought my first air fryer, I also bought my first oil sprayer. I had never heard of an oil sprayer before (besides the ones you buy at the store, like Pam). Having an oil sprayer in my kitchen has changed the way I think about and use oil while cooking. Today, I am excited to share with you why you need an oil sprayer and which one is my favorite.
What is an oil sprayer used for?
An oil sprayer or oil mister is a sustainable and eco-friendly way to use your favorite oil when cooking. Instead of investing in a single use can, oil sprayers are reusable. AND, unlike the single use spray cans that contain things you don’t know how to pronounce, you know exactly what is inside your oil sprayer.
What oils can you put in an oil sprayer?
You can put any oil you want inside an oil sprayer besides oils like coconut oil that harden up when the temperature cools down, as they will clog your sprayer.
Other recommend oils for cooking (especially cooking in the air fryer) include:
Cathy’s favorite oil sprayer
Even though reusable oil sprayers are better for your health and the environment, they can sometimes be faulty. I have tried and used several different oil sprayers, and the reoccurring problem I’ve seen is that they stop misting, which can be frustrating.
If you do a quick Google search for the best oil sprayer, you won’t get one answer. Everyone has different opinions, and it’s possible that my own opinion will change, but to date, this is my favorite oil sprayer:
Mistifi Glass Oil Sprayer or choose the Mistifi Plastic Oil Sprayer
I like this Mistifi oil sprayer because it doesn’t use too much oil to spray, it mists the oil, and it hasn’t broken yet!
I’m including the other oil sprayers I have tried and tested, what I liked about them, and what I didn’t.
I liked this oil sprayer because it’s the most similar to a single use oil sprayer. It does a good job at creating a mist and uses very little oil to do so. Plus, it is the least expensive of the 3 sprayers. However, my Misto broke shortly after buying it. It would clog easily and not stream consistently.
The Evo oil sprayer was the first one I tried. It was nice, but it sprayed oil instead of misting it. I didn’t like this because it used a lot more oil and it wouldn’t cover the food evenly when cooking. This might work if you only need to oil pans, but besides that, it doesn’t offer many benefits as an oil sprayer.
Have you used any of these oil sprayers? How do they work for you? Is there a different brand that I didn’t mention that you think I should try?
