Sur La Table® Oil Misters
The colors are cute and what drew me to the product, but it's must better to pass on that and get a different one.
Regardless whether you're looking for a backup in a kitchen that's already well stocked with such tools, or your first oil mister, don't bother with this one
When my bread recipie called for covering the dough with a lightly oiled towel, I winced. How do you 'lightly oil a towel'? I misted the dough with the mister and covered it with a flour towel. It rose beautufully!
I use it when I want to lightly oil an omelet skillet for a small fish fillet for one. Beautiful!
For a true mist, that you cannot achive from an aerosol can, it is ideal.
Fortunately I found that if I turned the sprayer head, so the spray was pointing in the direction of the bend in the tube inside the bottle, the spray finally worked as it should. I had 10+ seconds of good, strong, even spray.
The issue was that the end of the tube was left high and dry when I would tilt the sprayer. Rotating the spray head kept the end of that tube submerged, which kept the spray going strong.
I have had other oil sprayers--meant for food--which smelled so badly of chemicals I could never use them. These sprayers I have found to be a great value. I also love the glass reservoir, the locking lid, and the great colors
Questions & Answers
I pump it and nothing happens. THe spray nozzle remains stationary. Shouldn't it move. I've tried, my husband has tried. I'm not sure if it's defective or we are doing it wrong
