Expert Tips

Nonstick cooking spray is oil that's mixed with air as it's dispensed, allowing you to coat the bottom of a pan with a much thinner layer than would be possible with liquid oil. It's also useful for giving a spritz of flavor to vegetables, salads and grilled foods. Disposable cans of nonstick spray have been available for many years; now, you can also buy reusable dispensers that convert any cooking oil into a spray.
