Something handy

I was watching one of my favorite shows to watch on TV, The Shopping Bags, where they compare items like tools, kitchen gadgets, even cigars one day, to find the better quality one.. and they were comparing cooking sprays one day. They threw in this, a Misto, that you fill with your own oil. I thought it sounded like a good idea, and bought myself one off Amazon. I love it! I fill it with extra virgin olive oil, and use it all the time now. When I went back to Oregon to help take care of my father in law, I used Pam for the first time in a couple of years, and it STUNK. I could smell whatever else was in there, it was horrid. I'll stick with this Misto, and I think the investment is well worth it. Considering that a can of Pam is what 2$ something now, and a Misto is around $10 to $15 top price (Sears has it for $10.99 as of today), it's a bargain. I've had mine for 2 years now, with no problems. Some say the seal wears out after a while, but I figure if I get 3 good years out of it, I've saved money, left the extra whatever they put in Pam out of my system, and eaten better *less oil* . At any road, its a bargain.

On another note, the mosquitoes are here. With a vengeance. YUCK! I open my kitchen door, and they swarm in.


  1. Diane:
    Thanks for the "review" on what appears to be a handy kitchen item...

    NOW...what you might want to do is go out and buy some sort of "skeeter-zapper", and give us your thoughts on THAT..?
    (remember, 'ya can't swat 'em ALL)


    Have a great weekend!

  2. flying insect spray is what we use. I am going to buy some of those "mosquito plants" you see at nurseries and see if those actually work. Otherwise, keep your grass clipped, and don't keep potted plants on your patio around your door.. that's where they will hang out :|
