A GREAT way to control the amount of oil you use is to make an oil spritzer by filling any clean spray bottle half full with olive oil, or any oil of your choice. Write the date that it was filled, check every 3 months to make sure that it is still good by holding up to the light and making sure that it is clear, free from any discoloration or particles. Store in a cool, dry, dark place like a spice cupboard. Each spray contains 1/8 tsp of oil. Use to grease pans and adding oil to dishes.
