Oils stored in metal containers

I am thinking of buying two Haw misters to use for spritzing oil on foods. They are metal thumb pump type misters and come in brass and nickel plated. I thought I'd get one for Olive oil and one for vegetable/canola oil. My question is, "would it be safe to store the oils in metal containers?" Will it affect the taste or start to break down the plating?
Thanks for your thought and input.

I've been using a Mr. Misto pump oil sprayer for years and never had any issues with clogging or bad oil. I just don't like the look of them and want nicer misters

If you are not having those issues, then go for it!
