How many sprays do I need to cook with?
We recommend using at least 5 sprays to cover the surface of an average frying pan, however you may need to add more during cooking depending on the food type.
Should I keep Frylight in the fridge?
No. As oils solidify when kept at a cool temperature, Frylight cooking sprays should be kept out of the fridge and away from light at room temperature.
Does Frylight contain alcohol?
Yes - we use a small amount of alcohol in our cooking sprays as a preservative, made from sugar beets or grain and water. The alcohol evaporates away during cooking and is undetectable under scientific testing.
Is Frylight suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
Yes, none of our Frylight cooking sprays contain animal or dairy products. The Butter variety contains natural butter flavouring from a non-dairy source.
Is Frylight cooking spray gluten free?
Yes, Frylight can be used by those who are intolerant to gluten including celiacs.
What is the best way to clean my cookware after using Frylight?
We recommend that all cookware is washed by hand in hot soapy water straight after cooking. Many non-stick pans claim to be dishwasher safe, but the very hot water and harsh detergents aren't good for the non-stick coating. Over time this will cause the pan's coating to deteriorate much faster than washing by hand. Learn more about how to use Frylight cooking sprays.
The product comes out in a creamy colour, why is this?
Frylight is an emulsion and is cream in colour.
My pump has stopped working, what should I do?
When first used, the cooking spray pump must be primed before it will spray. This could take up to 10 finger pumps. If the spray still doesn’t work, please contact our Consumer Care Team. If the spray stops working after some time try turning the spray head button to face in the opposite direction and try again. If this fails please contact our Consumer Care Team.
My Coconut Frylight won't spray, what shall I do?
As coconut oil is naturally solid below normal room temperature, during the winter months our Coconut cooking spray can sometimes feels the cold! To prevent it from starting to solidify, and therefore not spray, we recommend you keep your Coconut Frylight near a warm place such as a radiator for 20-30 minutes before use. This will ensure it is not lumpy. Just give it a good shake and it should spray as normal. If this fails, please contact our Consumer Care Team.
Can I use Frylight in baking?
Yes, Frylight cooking spray is perfect for cake and bake release. Simply spray on the inside of your cake tins before adding the batter to give excellent turn out results - our Butter cooking spray works a treat! You can also spray flat baking trays to prevent biscuits from sticking.
We don't suggest using Frylight cooking sprays as a replacement for fat ingredients when making cakes and bakes.
