I had the Pampered Chef one, finally threw it out. I have a oil bottle that has a top like a liquor bottle, a very small stream of oil comes out, I have found that works very well. I even measured how much comes out with a measuring spoon. The exercise I got pumping that dang thing was benefcial, tho.

I have a misto and it takes some getting used to (tightening, loosening, pumping) but its got to be better than the sprays. I got turned off my them after having such a hard time getting pans cleaned after baking using cooking spray.

I use a misto (got it at costco) ... no nasty chemicals from using the real thing!

I've tried using them over the years, but can never find a sprayer that works properly. They pump up, but the spray just doesn't come out in a mist for a long enough time.

I got one of those from Target and could never seem to get it to work right for me.

I rationalize my use of sprays with the idea that it is overall healthier for me because I am using so much less.
I agree with the others that the healthiest option is the olive oil mister.

I like to use my olive oil sprayer to put a little olive oil on my salads and pastas too. Helps control how much I use.

I think the olive oil spray cans are an excellent investment (I have the Pampered Chef version) as I tend to use it in place of butter when I am cooking/baking and it is awesome to be able to spray it on (like on breads and such)

I actually just saw something about this on Dr. Oz. He was saying they contain propellants (I think). Ijust bought a Misto at the Kitchen Store. It was $10 just like the other person commented. I like it, but yeah... you could just use your fingers. I hadn't thought of that ;)

you can also put a little evoo on your clean fingers and rub it in the pan...its also good for you skin and nails and then there is no waste at all.

Pampered chef also sells an oil spray bottle
The only drawback to these I find they don't last. They need to be replaced.

I use a Misto olive oil sprayer. It was only about $10. I love it and it is cheaper than buying the cans of sprays with all the added chemicals...

I don't remember seeing this question before and I've wondered it for quite a while.
I have been hesitant about cookling oil sprays. Are they clean? If not, is there a container that we can use to spray olive oil on foods and pans? I saw one online somewhere years ago.
