Rather than pouring it by hand, using a spray bottle of oil helps you apply a much thinner coating to a pan before cooking eggs, meat, fish or vegetables. Most nonstick cooking sprays are made with oil (usually canola), water and an emulsifier such as lecithin. You can do it yourself too: Just mix one part olive oil with five parts water in a spray bottle. Shake well before each use and store in a cool, dark place like a kitchen cabinet (but not one directly above the stove).
