It’s imported from Germany, where engineers’ hard-won reputation for superb craftsmanship is taken seriously. The Emsa sprayer makes it easy to coat pans with oil before you bake, or to spray a marinade on the main course, or coat the grill so your dinner doesn’t stick. You pump the top about 10 times to pressurize it, then the non-aerosol sprayer distributes a fine mist. You can control just how much oil (or vinegar) you use, which is ideal for those of us watching calories. We particularly like that the frosted glass jar lets you see how much oil is left in the container — and what kind of condition it’s in. The whole unit comes apart for washing by hand.
The U.S. distributor of Emsa’s products is Frieling, a company founded by Monika and Bernard Schnacke. Frieling’s mission is to make kitchen life easier, healthier, more enjoyable and more convenient. Emsa’s oil sprayer scores on all accounts.
