I think I tried to put oil in a spray bottle before and I don't recall it working very well. how can you make a cooking spray that will not gum up a spray bottle?


1 Answer 1


For several years, I've been putting canola in a plastic squeeze spray bottle and using that. I do not recommend 'vegatable' oil, which in the USA is usually 100% soy oil and I have found that it gums up and can leave a difficult to clean residue

Yes, my system can apply too much and do so unevenly too. just use a paper towel to wipe off ecess and even out.

Far cheaper with canola priced at about $5 per US gallon versus 8 oz of generic aerosol spray at $1.99
