I need a couple of kitchen supply recommendations, please.

Jeez, I used to be able to google something and get articles. Now I just get three pages of ads for places that sell what I'm asking about. So, here's what I'm looking for.

1. olive oil sprayer. I'm sick of buying Pam™. I know there are non-aerosol pump sprayers for olive oil and canola oil, but that's the problem. There are a bunch of them. Are they all about the same? Any downside?

2. Oven safe frying pan/skillet. I know everyone here loves cast iron skillets, and they may in fact be the best option. But can anyone recommend a reasonably priced lighter weight non-stick pan that can safely go in the oven to finish cooking after being used to sear?

Thanks.

What's going on with Amazon? I'm checking the sprayers out and have just been reading the reviews for three of the top rated ones. For one, the reviews are all about olive oil. Another one, they're all about dried flowers, and the third one they're all about a dish drying rack.

The answer will depend on desired oven temperature. Cast iron is the popular choice here because it can withstand the highest oven temps without suffering damage.



It is what it is.

Most every fry pan can go in the oven these days. Costco brand with silicon handles are nice.

I think all the il sprayers clog eventually, so get one that's easy to clean.

Calphalon with metal handles should be OK in the oven. Have a GOOD oven mitt to remove pot/pan from the oven.

i bought these from Amazon years ago. They did eventually clog but frankly, i don't think i cooked often enough to keep them working.

Misto Brushed Aluminum Olive Oil Sprayer

I bought a 3pc Tramontina Sauté Pan set from Costco this past winter. oven safe to 350. in fact, i put one in the oven just this evening (note to self - the handle is still hot when you take it out of the oven to make the pan sauce...). other than that, cast iron rocks.

Here's what we did awhile back....
Next model up, 10" & 12" Calphalon Contemporary non-stick frying pan set at Bed Bath & Beyond on sale then, and again now, for $50, less $15 coupon for $35 +tax OTD for both skillets.
On the Calphalon site you also buy just the 12" pan for $130 if you want.



BTW, MikeF's pan is also on sale for $55, less any coupons.

We have one of these

My wife uses this daily.

I have to take it apart maybe once a year and soak it in hotter soapy water to clean out the nozzle and tube.

And leave the mitt on the handle once you remove it from the oven. Ask me how I know.

I never thought about an oil mister. Now I'm curious.

I use Pam type products mainly for my popcorn, guilty pleasure of the butter flavor. Does anyone know how to replicate that flavor in an oil mister?

Thanks!

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I'm thinking it would be practical to have a cast iron pan anyway, so that might be the solution. Good to see other options, though.

As for the mister, in my further research someone brought up a nice alternative. Those spray butter bottles can be refilled with olive oil, canola oil, whatever. Food grade plastic. Cheap enough to even buy and dump the fake butter inside. If (when) it clogs, recycle the old an get a new one. I may rend up trying that.
