Is there any little sealed pot with a brush in it to keep oil?

I've recently read somewhere that nonstick pans should be given a little oil while they are heating, according to one manufacturer at least.

I don't want to have to wash a pastry brush to use my olive oil everytime. Suggestion?

I just pour a little oil in the pan and wipe it around with a paper towel. On the non-stick pan, it kind of separates into little globs, but it still seems to work.

I have one of those little pump sprayers by Misto. It works great & tastes better than Pam...

I use a wine bottle with one of those bottle spout pourers they use at bars. Squeeze bottles work great too.

This could be a good solution: the barbecue pot has a silicone brush in it. Just keep it by the stove instead of the barbecue:

I used to use old wine bottles with a pourer. Now, I'm not as style conscious and use the cheap squeeze bottles (like dinner mustard/ketchup squeeze bottle--but translucent) for Olive oil. I get better control with those. I recently bought some more for flavored simple sugar after getting inspired by the soda stream threads.

I had issues with the Misto also...I purchased this sprayer from Sur la Table last year and it works great. Small too.

I've bought so many silicone basting brushes and love them dearly because they're dishwasher safe.
