Oil misters are popular for helping reduce the amount of oil used in cooking and baking recipes. They quickly and effectively coat large areas (baking sheets, skillets, food, work surfaces) when only a touch of oil is needed, as in the Bavarian-Style Pretzels from Fine Cooking #119. To create the pressure needed for an even spray they need only be pumped a few times (each manufacturer recommends the optimal number of pumps). These three models are our favorites. All are available at Amazon.com.

Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer Its sleek brushed-aluminum body is elegant and sturdy, and it protects the oil from light for longer shelf life. With 15 pumps you get a clean, easily controlled spray.   Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer
Prepara Tabletop Mister A clean-looking glass mister that's ready to use with just seven pumps. We like that the body of the mister can go straight into the dishwasher, and since it's transparent, you can see how much oil you have left.   Prepara Tabletop Mister
Norpro Stainless Steel Mister
This mister combines some of the advantages of the other two. It has a sturdy stainless-steel cover and base but the convenience of a transparent plastic body. It takes 10 pumps to create a fine spray
