Misto Review and Giveaway

*************UPDATE: GIVEAWAY CLOSED*******************

We've had a few questions about the misto that I love so much and so I thought I'd do a review of mine.

I've had my misto for over a year now and I love it for one reason: when I run out, instead of putting "cooking spray" on my grocery list I just fill it back up with olive oil.  That means it's one less thing on my list of things to store.


Some people have complained that the misto leaks, but I've never had a problem.  In the instructions, it's very clear that you only put the exact amount of oil in, never more.  There are different sizes of mistos so it's important that you read your instructions to see how much oil you put in for your size.

The size that I have calls for 1/4 cup of olive oil.  So I measure it out every time. No estimating on this!


Take apart your misto,


 carefully pour in your oil,


replace the nozzle part,


and screw on the ring to keep the nozzle in place.


When you are ready to use the misto you use the lid as a pump.  Pushing down on the lid for ten pumps causes the air pressure to build up in the canister. Then you just spray your bread pans, or cookie sheet, or whatever!

The only quirk I've noticed is that mine doesn't work sometimes when I'm pointing down at the bread pan or whatever. So I have to pick up the bread pan and face it toward the misto so the misto is upright when it's spraying.  It's not a big deal and it doesn't happen all the time, but just a quirk.

Well, we can't have a review without a GIVEAWAY!  So enter a comment below to win a Misto for your very own.  The giveaway will be open for comments until Thursday at 6pm EST.  Winner will be announced Thursday night.

Good luck!


***Misto did not fund this review and giveaway, I just really love my misto (that I bought with my own money) and want to give one away (with our own money).

I've been wanting one of these since the last time you talked about it! Since I started baking all our bread from our food storage, I use A LOT of cooking spray.

Julie said...

I sure would love to take cooking spray off of my shopping list. I got to use my friend's once and it was great.

Lynn said...

Oh! I would LOVE one of these. I was just talking to my daughter just the other day about them and how much healthier our foods would be if we could spray a little olive oil on them.

Thanks!

We just recently moved from a large urban area to a much quieter suburban area. Gosh, I miss Macy's. We lost a bunch of things during our MSM ( move,storage, move). I had forgotten about my misto. Another casualty! *sigh*.

debsdialogues said...

I've never even heard of anything like this before, I love the idea of being able to fill the canister yourself. One more way to be self-sufficient! Thanks for your posts, always enlightening.

Me said...

I used to have a plastic version of this at one point but had the leaky problem...perhaps I was a bit too aggressive with my pumping. I'd love to try this version. Thanks for taking your time and money to share a product you love with the rest of us.

Deborah Jennings said...

I would love one of these. I had never heard of them until I saw this post from you! I use the cooking spray a lot, and usually buy the olive oil one.

Phoenix33 said...

This looks like a great item and we would love to get one!

Debnow said...

You could always change up the oil used- canola, grape seed, to suit the occasion.

I would love to have a Misto. I have been thinking a lot about how unhealthy spray on whatever must be, with added things. I am trying really hard to become a healthier person. I would love to win this.

Deborah Jennings said...

Question on the Misto . . . Where did you find it? Just in case I don't win, I want to buy one. LOL

SK said...

Great idea -- wish I'd thought of it!
