I just use a spray bottle that my hairspray comes in, any spray (pump) bottle will do... rinse it out well, leave it to dry, then fill it from my big bottle of olive oil. And you do use LOADS less oil this way

StevePIraq .... Much healthier to eat Somtam with Pla-ra with fresh veggies, keep away from frying food in oil :)

I got my wife off the frying in oil kick by purchasing a hot air fryer.

Now she just uses a small pump spray bottle. We cook a lot of things in it.

same here, an air fryer for most things, and a pump bottle with olive oil for the things that must be fried in oil and we use a tiny fraction of the oil we used to

Put some oil, your choice, on a paper towel and rub it on the pan.

They sell cooking spray at Makro but I can't remember oil it is made from.

Well then using my existing virgin olive oil in a spare pump spray seems to be the way to go. Thanks all.

I don’t think there is such a thing as “non stick” cooking oil. The ones you get in those spray cans are around 50% oil, the rest is water, emulsifiers and other additives.
Easier to make your own.
It really depends on cooking temperatures and what type of pan you use.
Olive oil has a higher smoke point and not really the best oil for cooking at those temperatures.
For pan frying, we tend to use a good quality steel pan and a tiny (nid noy) amount of veg oil.
Cook at slightly lower temperatures and once you have placed whatever you’re cooking in the pan, don’t touch it. Leave it until a crust has formed before turning it. Lifting or turning it early, will cause it to stick.
To be honest, any good, seasoned, steel pan is going to be good for frying. Non stick pans are ok but after a few uses, they tend to lose their non stick qualities.
Also, never use washing up liquid on your steel pan, just hot water. Chinese never use it on their woks for a reason, it destroys the seasoning on the surface.

I've lost my mind and I am making no effort to find it.

When your iron skillet gets encrusted, throw it in a bonfire, that burns off the crust. When it cools season it.

We use cast iron and almost no oil, For many things no oil at all. The quickest and easiest way to season a cast iron pan is to just cook a batch of pancakes. Stewing or boiling in them ruins the seasoning and like Khundon1975 says, don’t wash them. But to occasionally rinse them while hot is OK. Heavy cast aluminum is 2nd choice but not spun aluminum. Stainless steel and spun or stamped aluminum pans are best for stewing and boiling but terrible for frying. Steel pans are OK for frying if constantly stirring, like in a wok, as being thin does not give even heat.
