MISTO Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer

Recently I purchased a Big Boss Oil-less Fryer and I've been fooling around with it. I thought that the sprayer provided was the main problem because it spat out a jet of oil instead of a wider-area mist. To coat food with oil therefore results in too many pumps of the spray, and too much olive oil sitting on the food.

After some looking around, I found a misting oil sprayer at the Gourmet Warehouse near The Waldorf Hotel. The reason why the MISTO Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer works well to produce a mist-like spray, the sort you get from aerosol cans, is the pump action that pressurizes the air inside the container.

Despite the product name, the manual indicates that it "can be used with any oil, vinegar, lemon juice or lime juice".

I tested it today on the Big Boss Oil-less Fryer, using some McCain Super Spirals and a piece of chicken thigh. The curly fries came out over-cooked and cracker-like, so I'll have to watch more carefully next time for a visual cue as to when they are ready. The chicken came out tender and juicy on the inside, but really pale on the outside.
I'll try some tempura next, but so far, the Oil-less Fryer is looking like a dud, at least for producing food that even vaguely looks and tastes deep fried.
