Kitchen Spritzer ~ Pampered Chef

pro⋅pel⋅lant [pruhpeluhnt] Show IPA  

 –noun   

1. a propelling agent.
2. the charge of explosive used to propel the projectile from a gun.
3. a substance, usually a mixture of fuel and oxidizer, for propelling a rocket.
4. a compressed inert gas that serves to dispense the contents of an aerosol container when the pressure is released.
 
So all that sounds fine & dandy to me until I think about a can of Cooking Spray.   Because yes, “propellant” is an ingredient in our Cooking Sprays.  It’s listed on the can in my pantry.  It fits definition #4 ~ a compressed inert gas that serves to dispense the contents of an aerosol container when the pressure is released. 
 
Sometime last year, I started using just a regular water spritzer (sorry for the lack of terminology, but think hair salon) filled with Olive Oil to spray any pots/pans before cooking.  It worked ok.  But it sprayed more in clumps rather than a nice mist that the aerosol containers give. 
 
Fast forward to October when I hosted a Pampered Chef Party & I noticed this fine little thingy (pictured above) in their catalog.  It’s a Kitchen SpritzerIt uses a pump handle ~ not aerosol ~ to give a mist!!  It’s refillable so I just pour our olive oil in, pump several pumps, and spray!!  I love it!!  It really works just as good as the aerosol container minus the “compressed inert gas to dispense the contents” … yuck! 
 

In full disclosure ~ I am a Pampered Chef Consultant, but I promise that has nothing to do with why I love this product and definitely not why I’m blogging about it!  In fact, I’m not going to tell you if you’re interested to come shop with me … but I will say if you’re interested in the Spritzer then you should find a rep in your area!!  And, just as a friendly FYI, next month is Stoneware month (which I’ve become a once hated, now loving Stoneware kind of girl) … it’s a great time to host a Cooking Party or a Catalog/Online Party because people love their Stoneware … which means you could rack up some host rewards!!
