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...
Misto has always clogged fom me.
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 have 2 Mistos and have never had an issue w/ clogging...

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 love, love, love this Bodum sauce pot with brush - it might be just what you're looking for!

I've bought so many silicone basting brushes and love them dearly because they're dishwasher safe.
Thanks Kari, that looks like IT.
