Vegan Kitchen Tool Review EVO Oil Sprayer by Betty Morgan
The NEW EVO Oil Spray Trigger Bottle is an essential kitchen tool that inspires novice and experienced cooks alike. This non-aerosol trigger sprayer means I no longer have to worry about what added chemicals I’m spraying on my precious vegan recipes.
First developed for commercial food service establishments, the EVO requires NO pumping, produces NO clogs and eliminates greasy basting brushes. You won’t believe how easily the EVO sprays oils to cover baked goods, breads or veggies with a light coat of oil. The first time I lightly sprayed baguette slices for crostini, I was astonished at how little oil was required to cover 24 slices on a cookie sheet and I achieved a nice crusty top under the broiler!
Cut the Calories!
Imagine, now I have OIL CONTROL! I’ve actually cut my oil usage in half! Yes, HALF! Do you know how many calories that saves in a year? But even better, the amount of $$$ I save is staggering! Trader Joe’s Aerosol Can Coconut Oil Spray was my last holdout for frying grated potatoes for Sunday Brunch. So I experimented by melting the Jarrow Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in my dehydrator and then poured the liquefied oil into the EVO Spray Bottle. It worked perfectly coating the pan before putting the grated potatoes into the pan and then I sprayed the top before flipping over! It was perfect and I knew that it was ALL coconut oil and no propellants, chemicals, or additives. And no more aerosol cans going into our landfills.
Coconut Oil Starts to Solidify at 75 degrees F
Coconut oil starts to solidify around 75 degrees F and will NOT SPRAY when this occurs. So I keep the EVO Spray Bottle in my oven with the oven light on. This keeps it liquefied and ready for use any time I need it. You can also put the EVO Spray Bottle in hot water or your food dehydrator to liquefy the contents before spraying.

Not An Aerosol
The oil sprays in a V-Shaped FAN either vertical or horizontal. In the video below, you can see the pattern of the EVO Oil Sprayer in both directions. It’s not an aerosol, so you’ll need to move your arm and wrist to get the coverage you want. It takes a few times to get the knack of using the EVO, but it’s worth the practice.
Assorted Gourmet Culinary Oils for the EVO Oil Spray Bottle
Expensive Gourmet Culinary Oils
I plan to add several more EVO Oil Sprayers for my expensive designer culinary oils. These oils are expensive, precious, and require just a bit to add gourmet quality to any recipe. I plan to add several bottle for: roasted hazelnut, roasted pistachio, roasted pumpkin seed, and butternut squash seed.
Gourmet Kitchen Design Bottle
The beautifully designed EVO Oil Spray Bottle by Michael Graves Design Group (MGDG) is intended for display right on your kitchen counter, yet slim enough to store in the fridge or cabinet. Each EVO Oil Sprayer holds a generous 18-ounces and the scalloped trigger lends a natural ergonomic feel with a great grip. Filling and changing contents is easy with the handy screw-on funnel, which hooks right onto the oil container's handle for convenience. Three reusable and washable label bands clearly identify what's inside. Perfect for all healthy cooking oils, including gourmet culinary oils, olive, peanut and sesame oils - even grape seed oil or balsamic vinegar. Made from BPA-Free, Latex-Free and DEHP-Free, 100% recyclable plastic. Ergonomic and easy to clean.
Simply hand wash the EVO Oil Sprayer in warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Make sure to spray some clean, hot water through the sprayer to clear and clean the trigger. The company says the EVP bottle is also top rack dishwasher safe, but I recommend only hand washing the bottle and the sprayer.
Lightly spraying oil onto salad greens makes the EVO Oil Sprayer a calorie saver! You could even use one for vinegar too!
Pan Saute Veggies
I love to lightly spray my cut veggies right in the pan and then sauté them over medium-high heat.
Horizontal or vertical fan spray patterns of your chosen oil provides control and precise application onto your favorite foods.
The EVO Oil Sprayer requires NO PUMPING!
The Funnel provides any overfill to be poured back into the bulk container easily. And the clever molded hook allows the funnel to attach it to the neck of the bulk oil container so it never gets lost.
Silicone label bands with printed names of oils fit easily onto the neck of the bottle to instantly find the right gourmet culinary oil for a recipe. This is very helpful if you have several EVO Oil Sprayers.
Imagine, you decide what oil to spray and eliminate all chemical additives, propellants, metal cans, and preservatives. The EVO Oil Sprayer gives me total control over how much oil I want to use.
An independent study shows the the EVO Oil Sprayer costs 9 cents per ounce to spray oil with a trigger sprayer versus 66 cents per ounce to spray oil in an aerosol can!
