Which one do you have/recommend?

I want to use for soy sauce, Thai chili oil, and rice vinegar.

Do you clean by hand wash or dishwasher safe?

Thank you.

Re: Misto or EVO oil sprayer?

I have the EVO and I don't like it at all.  The spray is WIDE and it gets everywhere - not a lot of control.  The Misto seems better in the demo, but I don't want to get "burned" again.

Re: Misto or EVO oil sprayer?

Well, I use a small spray bottle that was originally "i can't believe it's not butter", or similar spray butter product.

 

I know they're food grade, and after doing this for years I have set aside the sprayers with the best spray pattern, and toss out the rest.

I hand wash bottles and sprayers I'm going to reuse.

 

Several years ago I filled one with an excellent cold pressed EVOO, and another with a top quality balsamic vinegar.

I just spritz my salads.

 

Never saw a reason to pay more for a separate container.

Re: Misto or EVO oil sprayer?

I was looking for an oil sprayer some months ago and read reviews for both the Evo and Misto.

I bought the Misto and am so very pleased with it. Seems like a small family company that followed up to see if I was happy with the purchase.

I bought it to spray oil and I'm not sure that it will spray other than a liquid product.

It works very, very well. Since I filled it to capacity, I have not had the occasion to wash it, but I can't think of any reason for a problem.

 

I would certainly buy this again knowing how well it works and I think everyone would be happy with this quality product.

[ Edited ]

I have both but like the EVO sprayer better. I can just pick it up & spray.

With the Misto you have to pump it up first. IMO they both work pretty good.

I bought the set of 3 last year. I gave 1 to my SIL & 1 to my MIL. I kept the other one plus both EVO sprayers.

Both Misto & EVO also have stainless steel or glass. All of them say to hand wash. You can put the glass part of the Misto in your dishwasher top rack only.

I don't know where all the spray is spraying when I use it so I spray stuff in the garage in the trash can or outside. I don't need oil spray all over my kitchen.

@x Hedge OMG!  Thank you for sharing that about the vinegar & oil for your salad.  Goodness, why didn't I think of that?  It's brilliant.  I'm going to do this.  Smiles.

Those should work or any other spray bottle from the grocery store that had some type oily spray in it. I would not try others unless they are food grade since they would probably clog.

I have never bought I cannot believe it's not butter but it's probably cheaper than buying these other spray bottles. I could buy some & dump out the contents. I will tell my MIL in case her Misto does not work out for her. Thanks for sharing.

Actually, I prefer the "Smart Balance" spray, and overall they have the best sprayers, but ICBINB was just the first Spray Butter brand name that came to mind when I was writing the post.

 

I only fill the bottles a third to half full, and wash & thoroughly dry between refills.

At this point I have clean extras, so I don't have to wait before filling another bottle.

Re: Misto or EVO oil sprayer?

I returned the Misto, it just does not work for very long and the EVO is better, but does not spray as was demonstrated on TV. I kept the EVO, it's better than nothing.
