Homemade Nonstick Spray sounds a lot harder to do then it really is! I started using alternatives to canned spray back in 2013. Back then I was tired of the residue it seemed that canned nonstick spray was leaving all over my pans, now I love the health benefit of knowing what is in my spray.

Now when I first started doing this I did a combination of olive oil and water in a spray bottle (I one like this -> here) I used this water and oil on casserole pans, crockpots, and baking dishes with no problems!!
The Formula Water and Oil Homemade Nonstick Spray:
- 1 Part Olive Oil
- 4 Parts Water
- Shake and spray!!
While it worked my girlfriend Jenn clued me into a better way to do this. With the water and the oil, it seems to always separate and was a pain on big cooking days to keep measuring and mixing more I needed it! She introduced me to the Misto to make a homemade nonstick spray with. (You can get one on Amazon -> here)
Now when I got it, I won’t lie, it intimated me a little bit that it was a lot harder looking than my little spray bottle. All Jenn did when I called her was laugh at me an say she would show me how easy it is! She was coming over to help make a recipe any way so we busted this out and she showed me out easy it is! Hindsight I really should have at least looked at the directions before thinking it was too hard.
All you do is disassemble and fill half way full of oil. Reassasmble the Misto and then pump the lid to pressurize the oil for spraying.
Now the lid gets harder to pump as it is pressurized so you can tell when it is done! I love how easy it to spray by pressing down! I plan to get another one for garlic oil for when we saute vegetables.
Have you used a Misto before? What kind of oils have you put in it?
