Greasing pans is the bane of my existance. OK, maybe not THE bane, but it's close.
I really can't stand buying those cans of spray for the pans. Every time I turn around, they're empty, and I have a fairly large can to get rid of. You may think, "Big deal! With a household of 11, they must have truckloads of trash!" Nope. One can per week. I rarely use cans, never use glass jars, and my single biggest trash luxury is the Wall Street Journal. Meats are wrapped in plastic wrap by the butcher; no styrofoam trays for me! But I digress.
I've always used crisco and paper towels to grease my pans, but that can be sloppy, too. So, when I saw this little gismo at Amazon.com for under 10 bucks, I had to try it. I've had it 3 weeks now, so it's probably safe to say that it works pretty well. You simply pour about a cup of plain vegetable oil in it, pump it up with the cap (sitting beside it), and spray your pan. If you look at my pan of butterscotch fingers, you'll see that they came out of the pan nicely.
This is the best solution I've found to greasing pans. Has anyone found a better one?
