Recommendations for Oil Mister?

I've been using a Misto oil mister for my cooking oil for a couple of years now. The problem is that it often gets clogged, requiring a thorough cleaning at the most inconvenient times.

Any recommendations for a good oil mister that will last a long time and doesn't clog?

I'd prefer something where the vessel is stainless steel or glass (and not plastic).

I think the answer is to use a oil that doesn't dry. I've given up misting for the most part with olive (or any other) oil. Olive oil is not suppose to dry so I wonder if the stuff I last used has been adulterated (very possible since a lot more olive oil is consumed than produced worldwide.)

Would a regular water sprayer work? Or is the oil too thick?

The trouble is, I think, the plastic most often used will impart a taste (or other stuff) if oil is stored in the vessel.

Good idea though especially if one can find those old metal horticultural sprayers such as the Haws (with construction that does not result in metals leached into the oil) that uses air pressure and not an inline pump.

I see the below but have no idea how well the pump holds up.

Hm, interesting thought. I had been using grapeseed oil but never thought of that.

Has to be plastic somewhere. A metal container may impart a taste, which is why the Misto and the Evo brand above have plastic liners. Only thing that will do otherwise is a glass vessel.

hmm

I have a couple of cheapish ones I have been using for years. One for olive, one for avocado

Never had an issue with clogging.

Both are plastic lined stainless.
