Is a misting system the best way to grow sprouts?

I notice that more and more companies are making sprouting systems that use mist.  Wondering what people think about it.  Is it preferable to a rinsing system?

    i think a soaker hose would be better. as that would prevent fungis on the leaves

      Leaves?  Sprouts don't have leaves.  I'm talking about sprouting grains, lentils, peas and beans.  Maybe you thought I was referring to germination.

    It's preferable on a commercial scale because it is less labour-intensive and uses less water, and therefore costs less money.

    If you are only producing enough to feed yourself and your family, though, rinsing is just fine.
