    Cooking spray

    Wondering: how bad is it for the ozone layer to use aerosol cans of cooking spray? A LONG time ago I thought it was established that aerosol anything was a really bad idea, but a few things still only come in that form...most of which I have no use for. But lots of otherwise great recipes call for cooking spray. What do you do? (Sometimes I just swipe oil around the pan...but always feels like I must be missing something.)

    The aerosols used in misting cooking sprays are not the chlorofluorocarbons harmful to the ozone layer but nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, food-grade alcohol or propane.

    For the sake of your health, I recommend using butter or olive oil instead.
