Top Kitchen Tool: Oil Mister

November 16, 2013

Earlier this year, I got hooked on watching America’s Test Kitchen. Frequently, they’ll review gadgets and kitchen equipment, and frequently after watching, I ponder whether I need a new or upgraded item in my kitchen. One item I decided to purchase is an Orka Flavor and Oil Mister by Mastrad (I bought one from Amazon for about $13). I’ve had it for a few months and haven’t felt the need to reach for the aerosol cooking spray I used to rely on.

To use it, fill to the fill line with the oil of your choice (I use canola), pump the lid a few times to build up some pressure, and then spray. You’ll need to pump each time you use it. The mist isn’t as fine as an aerosol can, but it provides even coverage and it’s worked well for both baking and cooking.

Here’s a picture of a pan that I sprayed, plus a couple of views of the mister.
