Here is a link to the PAM website.

You can use Canola oil, just pour a little over the walnuts and stir. The spray gets into the crannies better.

You can get olive oil PAM, too. And PAM especially for grills. It’s great stuff.

You can also buy oil misters that will do essentially the same thing using the oil of your choice.

@ibstubro I’m so glad you gave that link. I’ve always wanted to buy something like that, rather than use the stuff in a can. I would assume the can has added chemicals.

I’ve wanted to try one, too, @JLeslie. More so when I cooked a lot more. I’m afraid that the misters would ‘gunk up’ if not used regularly.
Yes, the aerosol cans have more than oil and air in them:

Is the Propellant in Pam Cooking Spray Harmful?

Being able to choose your own oil (like a high grade olive) would be great!

I always thought if I just bought some random sprayer the oil might be too thick for it, so I never tried.

I’ve only recently started using it at all, and that’s just because Rick buys it. From my poverty days, it was such a waste of money, when a dab of oil swiped around did the same thing.
