Oh, you might be wondering what in the Sam Hill is so exciting about an olive oil bottle spout. Well, I’ll tell you.
For the longest time I’ve used whatever tops came with the bottles that I bought. Not olive oil bottles that actually come with olive oil in them—but, you know, the empty clear glass bottles you can buy at any discount store and use to put olive oil, vinegar, and whatnot inside.
But the problem I’d always have with these bottles is that leakage would always start happening sooner or later and drive me nuts. Every time I’d go to pour out some olive oil through the spout it would start leaking around the rim. Not when you first buy these, of course, but after you take the spout off a couple of times to refill the bottles it becomes weak over time. Which is dumb—and so far, I’ve not had that problem with these.
But I accidentally found these lovely white spouts at The Container Store. They came 3 to a pack. So, naturally, I had to try them out. I was skeptical that they wouldn’t work any better than the original tops that came with the bottles—but as inexpensive as they were, I figured I’d give ’em a go.
And how wrong I was! As luck would have it—I SCORED! I discarded the old spouts and put these bad boys in their places.
Now I just walk around the house turning the bottles upside down for no other reason than to try to get it to leak—but it doesn’t work. Even when I have no apparent use for olive oil, I’m turning the bottles upside down.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, replace your olive oil bottle spouts with these beauties.
