One of the worst things in the kitchen is being in the middle of preparing a dish, needing something but everything is cooking too fast. It is for that reason I keep certain items right at an arms length of the stove top at any time. One item I always keep near me is olive oil, for tossing vegetables with, adding to a pan and so many other recipes. But the bottle sitting out on the counter isn’t exactly pretty or something I want to look at every day.
This year I traded out the plastic olive oil bottle for a Rachael Ray Cucina Stoneware Olive Oil Dispenser we were sent. The elegant design not only control the amount of oil you pour but also fits comfortably in your hand as you pour your oil. The oil dispenser has clean lines so fits in modern kitchens but has a bit of a rustic feel so it can fit into any design and decor.
With the swooping shape of the oil dispenser, I found filling it was a bit harder using a standard bottle to pour into it. To make it easier, I simply inverted the bottle and turned the opening upwards and let gravity do the work. This made filling the dispenser easy, and I was able to do so without spilling a drop.
Once the dispenser is filled, I simply put in the air locked seal back in the bottle and set it on the counter. The bottle is easy to use, easy to clean and is even dishwasher safe. Keeping it right beside the stove makes cooking any dish easy and I don’t have to run to the pantry at the last minute and always have it right on hand. I love the look of the oil dispenser on the counter the functionality of it.
