Anybody thought to use oil sprayer for roasting? This would be a substitute for frying where you use on potatoes, poultry, veggies etc for a healthier substitute for saute etc to reduce fat quantities

I actually like my refillable oil sprayer (not Misto). The secret is to fill it only to the line, just about 1/2 way up. It keeps me from being heavy handed.

Haha...I gone through two "Misto's" also. I don't learn well.

Now, I just get the plastic squeeze bottles from wal-mart. About a buck each. And use those for olive and peanut oil.

OMG & LOL, I thought I was bat-s***t crazy because I couldn't work an simple oil sprayer. And that sprayer would get clogged after a couple of spritz.

Ditto! I just bought some Lekue citrus misters for Christmas stocking, and my oil mister experience has me suspicious. But the guy at the store says they're great..

The Misto oil sprayer. We had one which sat on the kitchen counter collecting dust and was hardly ever used. It seemed like a good idea at the time of purchase, but then I just didn't get the satisfaction in it's performance that was sort of implied. After it was all said and done, I can easily brush a thin coat of oil onto my pans. What else could you do with it other than spray oil onto cooking surfaces?

OMG, I am so glad you said that. I have gone through two of them. I thought it was just me.
