This is one of my favorite ways to save fat and calories when I am cooking because it allows you to use significantly less oil than you would normally need. For example, with a mister you can easily cover the entire bottom of a saute pan with under a teaspoon of oil, while without it you would need a couple of tablespoons. It is also great to add a touch of oil to salads and other dishes. One of my favorite ways to use the oil mister is to infuse the oil inside with fresh herbs, garlic, or chilis. Simply add in your favorite herbs and immediately you have a fresh herb oil to mist over salad or use for cooking. I have the Prepara Oil Mister at home but most will work. Look for one that is dishwasher safe.
