Finding the right oil dispenser for your home
An oil dispenser is a tall, narrow bottle that is used to hold condiments, such as oil, vinegar and salad dressings. Not only do they make kitchen cooking easier, they preserve the quality of your oils and vinegars. Here are four benefits of adding an oil and vinegar dispenser to your kitchen:
They make pouring easier. An oil dispenser with a spout helps you to control the amount of oil you use and prevent accidental spills and over-pouring.
They keep your kitchen clean. Dispensers make pouring oil mess-free so you can avoid grease spots from ruining your beautiful benches and countertops.
They prolong the freshness of oils. From cooking oils to flavoured boutique oils reserved for drizzling over salads, you can help to maintain their quality and taste by storing them in an airtight dispenser to seal in freshness.
They enhance your kitchen decor. Oil and vinegar dispensers are an elegant way to store your kitchen oils and condiments when not in use. With everything from sleek stainless steel to decorative glass bottles in various shapes and colours, they add a touch of style to any kitchen space.
Consider ease of pouring when choosing an oil dispenser
For most domestic and commercial kitchens, oil is a fundamental ingredient in cooking and one that is used in everything from sweet to savoury dishes. The key to using the right amount of oil to make your meals sing is to choose one with a spout.
A good spout will allow you to pour the exact amount of oil you need without spills or drips. The oil container may have a spout incorporated into the design of the bottle or be removable with a stopper. Tapered pour spouts are long and slender for easily drizzling over salads or into small bowls for dipping food.
Prolonging the shelf life of oil & vinegar
You may not realise it, but oil and vinegar have an expiration date and prolonged exposure to the air can accelerate their deterioration and affect the flavour. Make sure your oil dispenser is fitted with a stopper to keep the bottle airtight and seal in freshness. Find a great range of oil and vinegar dispensers at Kitchen Warehouse with different types of stoppers.
We have oil dispenser bottles by Bormiolo and Typhoon with cork stoppers, stainless steel bottles with lids by Avanti, removable stopper and spout attachments and litre bottles with flip-top lids to keep ingredients fresher for longer.

Material of oil dispensers available, from stainless steel to glass bottles
Oil dispensers and vinegar dispensers can be made out of various materials, including:
Stoneware, such as ceramic
Some may be a combination of materials, such as a glass bottle with stainless steel spout.
Finding oil dispensers which are convenient and leak-proof
It's important that all of your storage bottles have stoppers or caps that are properly sealed to prevent leaks and keep your oils and vinegars fresh and flavourful. All of our dispensers are expertly created with features such as drip-free spouts and gasket-lined lids to stop spills and prevent air from degrading the quality of condiments.
Using an olive oil dispenser for adding presentation and design for your kitchen
When you purchase expensive olive oil, it's only right that you show it off in a beautiful bottle that reflects its high quality. Oil dispensers are not just for sealing in freshness and controlled pouring, they can also look wonderful sitting on your dining table, pantries and kitchen benches.
Decorative glass oil and vinegar dispensers, such as our Salisbury & Co Old Fashioned Oil and Vinegar Bottle add a timeless beauty to your space, while the stainless steel Avanti Art Deco oil cans are stylishly modern.
For something a little different, the Typhoon Seasonings Teardrop Glass Duo Drizzler features a curved design crafted from hand blown glass with two compartments and two cork spouts to hold oil and vinegar for a beautiful contrasting effect.
Cleaning and care of oil and vinegar bottles
Most stainless-steel and glass oil dispensers are dishwasher-safe, however, some may be hand washed only so always check the individual label.

How to find the right capacity for your oil dispenser?
Oil dispensers can make invaluable additions to your kitchenware collection and keep your condiments fresh, tasty and easy to pour. The capacity of your oil dispenser will depend on where and how you intend to use it.

You can use your dispensers for different tasks, including drizzling over salads, cooking meats, coating vegetables for frying, creating dipping bowls, making mayonnaise and much more.
