Is there any cooking oil mister designed such that the oil is never in contact with plastic parts? I just don't like the possibility of having any plastic chemicals dissolved in the oil.

    in my experience most, if not all, commercially available sprayers use plastic parts for the pump and pickup tube. If you get a high end sprayer they will use better "food grade" plastic that wont leech chemicals into your food. – Steve Chambers Jan 8 at 21:58
  • I need some concrete recommendation. An hour of browsing on Amazon has proven me a failure to find such a "high end sprayer." – qazwsx Jan 8 at 22:21
  • You can always disassemble it so the sprayer part isn't sitting in oil all the time .... but I actually prefer the plastic canister ones. You can't see inside of the metal ones, so you have no clue what's going on in there. (if it's sufficiently filled / sufficient head space / what direction the intake tube is pointing / if there's anything growing in there) – Joe Jan 8 at 22:46

    And if you really want something that never touches plastic, you'd likely have to find a metal venturi (the type of mechanism that's in old perfume bottles) or manufacture your own. – Joe Jan 8 at 23:19

    Uncork bottle. Pour small amount of oil into pan. Spread it around – George M Jan 9 at 2:06
