I recently made some fried green tomatoes and needed an oil mister for an air fryer. Yes, they do need a little bit, especially for things with a batter. But the misters are out of my budget. So, I took a chance and got a Dollar Tree spray bottle.
The oil works best when you put just a little water in it, so the hole in the cap doesn't clog up. But with maybe 5% of the water and 95% oil, it worked great. I probably saved about $12.00! And they came out great!! N-JOY!

Save lots of money by simply putting your own oil into a mister bottle, and using it to spray on pans and waffle irons, instead of paying for the canned stuff! Far cheaper and healthier for you!

I purchased a plastic spray bottle from the dollar store and filled it with my favorite extra virgin olive oil. This has saved me a lot of money on the spray cans of non stick cooking spray.
