I use the Carlini too, and it works well.

I have some Crisco spray that I got on clearance and it my be my favorite, no cap to deal with and it sprays really well. But for the money, I keep going back to the carlini.

Im a PAM original use, well actually I use the store brand but it works just as well.

I think those spray bottles for oil are fine for what they are, delivering a small amount of oil. But I would never use it to lube baking dishes and the like.

The spray cans contain Lecithin to emulsify the oil and allow it to create a very thin layer on your cooking surface. So it is not the same thing as spraying your own oil at home.

I use a few drops of whatever oil or butter I want and spread it with one of these:



Mine is blue. I paid either $1 for one or $1.25 for two (can't remember) at Dollarama.

I believe that a spray oil can be a good thing. I've tried PAM and it worked okay. I tried Trader Joe's olive oil and it worked just as good, and I like TJ's products.

I have no use for butter flavored sprays. IMO they're to fake butter flavor spraying on your vegetables. I have no problem with using real butter on my vegetables.

The only reason sprays are nice is because of convenience. IMO you're just as well off pouring a drab of EVOO in your skillet and moving it around with a bit of paper towel, but then you have wasted the towel. A can of EVOO will last me for ages.

That's why I use the silicone pastry brush, and it's washable and not absorbent.

Yeah but you have to wash the brush. A can of EVOO and you just pssttt and you're all done.

Actually I don't own any oil sprays at the moment. I'm currently living a minimalist life. A bit of EVOO and a paper towel works fine at the present.

One paper towel and a small covered container with some olive oil in the bottom. Towel out, swab pan, put towel back in container and seal. One paper towel can last you a while.
