30-Ounce Glass Oil Pourer


Durable Olive Oil Container Provides Precise Control

We’ve had this glass oil pourer ($25) for over two years. The tapered spout allows for easy control when pouring. Drips and dribbles fall into the wide collar (that also acts like a funnel when filling) instead of on the kitchen counter or down the side of the container. The drip-proof nozzles that come with olive oil bottles aren’t nearly as good. Other advantages over using the bottle the oil comes in:

  • It has a low center of gravity, making it unlikely to tip over if knocked.
  • The shape provides fantastic balance for precise control.
  • You can buy your oil in bulk for savings.
  • You can run the whole thing through the dishwasher.

It’s extremely durable: I’ve bumped it more than I’d like to admit, as well as accidentally banged it onto the tile countertop when setting it down.

It’s become our go-to wedding gift.
