I was watching Alton Brown the other day on Food TV, and he had an into to his show where he was
in a grocery store, and was walking about talking about the amazing array of "sprays" that are available today,
I thought he was going to give them a big "thumbs down" , but he actually have them a huge thumbs up !
Surprise surprise, he liked many things about the sprays, and commented that there are so many good quality oils now in these spray cans, and many of the good quality ones use REAL oils you would find in the bottle, rather than "fake" additives that make you think it's "butter" or whatever it is....
It was pretty interesting.
I have never used butter in a pan, as this would burn very quickly, but who knows, perhaps these butter
ones from different companies also have a mix of something so that they don't burn as quickly.
I just don't remember the exact stuff Alton Brown said though, as he went through so many of them, but
he really did like them.
I'll tell you what I DO do though, whenever I make one of my "deep dish" pizzas, I will use my own spritzer that I bought some time ago and fill it with extra virgin olive oil , and that I will spray into the bottom of my deep dish pan before I put in my dough.... The only thing in spritzer can is extra virgin olive oil, and that's it. ( the oil is sprayed out by me pumping the top of it ). I like it because I know exactly what is going in there, it's less expensive, and I just like using the thing on lots of stuff ( like sliced baked potato and onion in foil when I do bbqs )
