Misto Spray Can

106

This Sparked Me!

I use a Misto sprayer instead of cooking spray. It's really good for giving veggies a light olive oil glaze for roasting, spraying a light mist of oil on salad or meat, and spraying my pans before I stir fry. You know you're using a good quality oil, because you pick it and fill it yourself!

MORE INFORMATION:
You can find Misto spray cans at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and online at Amazon. I've seen them occasionally at our local Target. I imagine any real kitchen supply store would stand a good chance of carrying them.

    I went thru 3 mistos. They are okay but I eventually got the "dribble" instead of the spray. I've had much better luck with the new ones I got at Sur La Table. They have colored tops so I got 2. One of them I have grapeseed oil and the other I have olive oil and I threw in some whole dried peppers for flavor. So far (about a year) they work great. They are less than 10 dollars and you can find them at: http://www.surlatable.com/pr

    Love mine, I have been using one for years.

    I had never even heard of these til last weekend when my friend was using one. I'm excited to get one myself. I've been using PAM all these years & this: 1. Is better for you 2. Better for the environment. You can use it over & over. Awesome!

    Thanks for all the input everyone! I can't wait to get one.

    I've had my Misto for a couple of years, it works fine but you have to pump it often. It also doesn't work as well if you tilt it. But those small issues are no big deal. I like being able to mist some good olive oil on foods.

    I didn't have much luck with my Misto. It worked fine the first few times, then stopped misting. It was more like a dribble that came out.

    Thanks! I have been looking for something like this!

    Go for the Misto - I had a Michael Graves version from target that worked wonders.

However, I bought a cheap store-brand one from Target (still 10 bucks) and it was horrible. The first day I used it the plastic parts failed and the thing exploded in my kitchen. Luckily my back was turned. I never did find the pressure nozzle.

Oil is very tough on certain plastics with long time exposure. Get a brand that is well known.

    I first wanted one when they were $20 also and I also did not get it then. About two years later I started seeing them for half that and got mine on sale for about $7. If I had known how much I would love it I might have sprung for that $20! Great for spraying air popped popcorn too by the way.

    Love the Misto.
Easy way to control oil and it's amount.
Like ISSY1554 said, much much better for you than the store sprays
(and better for the environment.

ALSO, re-pumping it is good little extra exercise for your upper body !! :o)

    Hmm, I saw one of these for the first time in TJ Maxx, and I was interested but too cheap to pay $20 bucks since I had never heard of it. Thanks for the "secret"! I think ISSY1554 is right, the chemicals in the other non stick sprays probably is bad for you.

    They're great, aren't they? I have one for canola oil, and one for olive oil. That way I know exactly what I am putting on my food!

    I bought my MISTO in Whitefish Montana while on a vacation. That was over 10 years ago. I love it. It is still looking as good as new. I am sure it has changed a little I have never looked to see if I can buy a new one for the RV now I know they are still about I must find another Thanks for the post.
ISSY1554 4/6/2010 1:16:00 PM

    I love these! I use mine all of the time. I don't like PAM and other sprays, heck no! It has too many nasty chemicals in it! boo on PAM YAY! For Misto!
