    Do you have any special bottles and techniques for pour liquid oil in a bottle and pumping air into this bottle?

    I agree. Cooking oil spray can be a safety hazard so I went online and found an cooking oil spray dispenser that didn’t use gas. I love it because I can put whatever oil I want in it. I’m a big fan of avocado oil.
