I have wanted for a long time to not be dependent on cooking sprays with unhealthy oils and propellants. I stopped using them in all cooking except for my bread. I certainly didn’t want to go back to shortening, and the spray gave a quick release with no calories.
I saw a small article in my health food store’s free magazine and tried it. I have used it for several 5-batch loaves of my whole grain bread, and it works great! I am a convert, and I will never buy any more of that other stuff!
Buy a self-pumping oil atomizer, available at kitchen stores. (The article says you can use a food-safe, glass spray bottle.)
Mix EV organic olive oil with water–1 part water to 5 parts oil. And voila!
Easy and works great!
