Oil and Vinegar Bottles
Add an oil or vinegar dispenser to your kitchen repertoire
An oil dispenser is a tall, narrow bottle used to hold and pour oils and other condiments such as vinegar and salad dressings. Not only do they add convenience to the cooking process, oil and vinegar dispensers also preserve the quality of your ingredients. The addition of an oil or vinegar dispenser to your benchtop or dining table means a flavour booster is always within reach, plus they’re often much prettier to look at than the original bottle your product is sold in.
We’ve compiled the top five benefits of adding an oil and vinegar dispenser to your kitchen:
- Easy pouring: An oil dispenser with a spout helps control the amount of oil you use, preventing wastage and over-pouring.
- Cleanliness: Dispensers make pouring oil mess free and stop grease spots from ruining your beautiful benches and countertops. It’s just one way you can use food storage and organisers to clean and declutter your kitchen.
- Freshness: Oil bottles prolong the life of their contents. From cooking oils to flavoured boutique oils reserved for the finishing touch, storing liquids in an airtight oil and vinegar dispenser seals in freshness to maintain quality and taste.
- Style: Oil and vinegar dispensers are an elegant, decorative way to store your kitchen condiments when not in use. From sleek stainless steel to glass bottles in various styles, you can match your oil and vinegar bottles to your favourite serving utensils for a cohesive kitchen look.
- Economical: Owning an oil dispenser is cost effective and environmentally friendly, as you can purchase oil or vinegar in bulk and stop buying and throwing away single use oil or oil spray bottles.
Easy pour with an oil dispenser
Oil is a fundamental ingredient in cooking, and whether you’re using a quality extra virgin olive oil in a salad or a neutral oil for frying or baking, quantity is key. 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 include a removable stopper. Tapered pour spouts are long and slender for easy drizzling.
Prolong the shelf life of oil and vinegar
You may not realise it, but oil and vinegar have an expiration date and prolonged exposure to air can accelerate their deterioration and affect their flavour. Dispensers are often fitted with a stopper or a flip top lid to keep the bottle airtight and seal in freshness, providing optimum oil and vinegar storage. This also means you can infuse flavour into your oil through the addition of elements like chilli, rosemary or peppercorns, while simultaneously preserving the ingredients. Just be sure to heat the oil and its infusers before letting the mixture cool and bottling it up. Presenting flavoured oils in a glass bottle can add a gourmet touch to a table setting or make a unique homemade gift.
Choosing the size of your oil bottle
The size options of oil dispensers vary and totally depend on your personal preference and intended usage. Store large amounts of oil in one litre bottles to avoid constantly refilling. Or downsize to a 500ml, 600ml or 750ml bottle if you’re used to cooking for a small crowd. A bottle around the 250ml mark is perfect for storing any dressings, oils and vinegars for drizzling.
Consider the material
Oil dispensers and vinegar dispensers can be made out of various materials, including:
- Stainless steel
- BPA-free plastic
- Stoneware, such as ceramic
Some may include a combination of materials, such as a glass bottle with stainless steel spout. Each option will maintain the freshness of your oils and vinegars, it’s just up to you to decide what best suits your kitchen aesthetic.
Compliment your kitchen decor
Given that an oil dispenser will sit next to your stovetop or on your dining table for easy reach, it makes sense to choose a beautiful bottle that compliments the surrounding decor.
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.
